"Flying silos" from Granville Brothers (hence the "Gee Bee") are undoubtedly the best known and probably also the most extraordinary machines ever flew races around pylons. Granville Brothers firmly believed that pure teardrop hull shape is aerodynamically advantageous. Just a bare necessity forced them ideal drop "wrong" wing projecting canopy, and tail surfaces. They took care not to make this "distortion" is the smallest-the result was a missile flying incredibly fast, but also extremely undemanding. But also to participate in the Thompson Trophy in 1932 involved Jimmy Doolittle, who already had to his credit in Schneider's Cup victory with float Curtiss and world water speed record aircraft. Selecting this was correct, Doolittle - albeit narrowly - won. A year later R-1 crashed in the Bendix Trophy (remote speed race across America, which always preceded pylon Thompson Trophy) and its pilot was killed. After repairing crashed again, this time pilot survived with serious injuries. After the machine has changed owner, who rebuilt it against the advice of Granville - and he became fatal. Other pieces continuously maintained and an evolutionary Gee Bee fought the Thompson and Bendix Trophy until the end of the 30th years - their biggest rivals, the machines were Wedell-Williams Model "44" (Gilmore Racer) and Howard "Mr. Mulligan" which you can also build a stupid combat DUMAS construction of a SIG from our menu.

Kit U.S. firms DUMAS Aircraft is the ideal machine for hobbyists who already has at least basic experience in building small models powered by rubber (as the very model of obtaining experience with classical building is recommended to build as one of the high-wing cabin from Guillow's or HERR) . You will improve in the works "žbrdličkové" fuselage and wings, paper coating and painting, preparation and maintenance of the rubber volume zalétávání - just all those wonderful skills modelařiny genuine classic. Given the size and complexity of the original model is already building quite a bit, but due to high preprocessed laser engraved works it goes like clockwork.

Model is a classic balsa construction in Rozsyp with laser carved wooden parts, scale accessories from vacuum-molded plastic and plastic parts drawn by injection molding. The hull is constructed right minimaketářskou technology with dividers and plenty of stringers, which allow faithfully reproduce the rounded shapes of modern machines. Built in two steps - thanks to "slit" in the vertical plane stand directly on the countertop first half of the fuselage, and then the "dolepíte" half a second.
