Furious 750 HP. 280 mph laps around a home pylon and then down the 10-mile course. Roscoe Turner, Jimmy Wedell, legendary and fearless racing aces. An endearing shape, somehow cartoon-like. Competing for Schneider, Thompson and Bendix trophies of the 1930s. At the time serious and popular, they now look comical, and have become beloved icons from 1930s flight history. At 23.5" wingspan, this large and highly detailed model is almost 1/12th the size of the original airplane.
