Product Description

The Gee Bee Model R Super Sportster was a special purpose racing aircraft made by Granville Brothers Aircraft. The aircraft had a very peculiar design, Granville reasoned that a teardrop-shaped fuselage would have lower drag than a straight-tapered one, so the fuselage was wider than the engine at its widest point (at the wing attachment point). The cockpit was located very far aft, just in front of the vertical stabilizer, in order to give the racing pilot better vision while making crowded pylon turns. The R-1 won the 1932 Thompson Trophy race, piloted by Jimmy Doolittle.

This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
