I traded some stuff for a McCoy 29 RR red head and that started a friendship with a Mainer named Kurt. Young guy that likes Stunt, old cars and Cox models. While I built him a Red Baron and Lil Stinker out of my stash of junk I found a lot of NOS stuff and built a mostly NOS custom Lil Stinker for my wife, Laura.
She has always had a thing for Pitts Specials because they're tiny and usually well finished, and maybe because when we were first dating I was racing mine at the Reno Air Races...
Anyway, here is her custom Lil Stinker.

I have a photo of another custom Lil' Stinker that looks very close to yours/Laura's. I saved it in 2016.. but can't remember from what site. Probably Google images. Regardless.. I like the custom-treatments!!!

A quick look on-line and it's clear the red on red is pretty common. White UC on red is also common, but looks like the white fuse only had white legs.

The white "propellers" weren't that common though. Maybe they were never an option.

This one has a red spinner..

No, ----- not perfect but should have all decals and decent condition with as much original equipment as possible.
Control line & handle and instructions is a + but not necessary and a box would be nice.This item is for a gift to someone special to me and not for resale.

Thanks for replying - Ricoman2

Custom Lil Stinker Empty Ricoman and the Li'l Stinker

Post  Ricoman2 on Sat Nov 02, 2019 8:42 am

Thanks for the pictures, they were very helpful. This would be a good starter to put one together but I would rather pay more money
to get a little closer to being ready to gift it because I really don't have the resources to finish this one. The price I think is very fair.
I have just begun to look to see what is available, I will keep our conversations handy and the pictures and may get back with you on this.

Thanks for your time and effort to help me.- Ricoman2

This one is mine. Resto off eBay. I will take the white prop back off. The wings are too yellow and it looks odd. www.projectlilstinker.blogspot.com
