Gee Bee R1

Up / terug

Gee Bee R2 - peanut scale (13"" span) model of a famous "Golden Age" 1930's racing aircraft.

Scratch built somewhere in the 1980's , conventional balsa "stick-and-tissue" construction, airbrush paint job, hand-painted transfers - nowadays that would be accomplished with a computer.

Never flown - trials ended in the face of imminent destruction.
