GeeBee from Seagull Models

Details

The full-scale Gee Bee Z, named “City of Springfield”, was an American racing aircraft of the 1930s, built with the sole intent of winning the 1931 National Air Races. Constructed in less than five weeks, the Gee Bee Z was a small, tubby airplane. It was essentially the smallest possible airframe constructed around the largest possible engine.

Wingspan was 23-1/2 feet, and the engine was a 535 horsepower Pratt & Whitney Wasp Jr. The Gee Bee Z won every race it entered at the 1931 NAR – including the Shell Speed Dash at 267.34 mph, the Goodyear Trophy Race, and the biggest prize of all, the unlimited Thompson Trophy Race.  The Seagull® Gee Bee gives modelers something they don’t often find in the marketplace – a unique subject at a great price point. This Gee Bee is available in the traditional yellow and black trim scheme, and is covered in Genuine German made ORACOVER (UltraCote®).

Features:

  • Wings plug in quickly and easily for convenient storage and transport
  • Factory painted fiberglass engine cowl and wheel paints
  • High quality balsa and plywood for light weight construction
  • All necessary hardware and accessories included
  • Genuine UltraCote covering and colorful scale decal sheet
