40% GeeBee Model Z (Current)

This model is being built by Fighteraces and is based on the 40% scale plans by Wendell Hostetler. Construction will be started in the spring of 2015. With a span of 112″ and a length of just over 6ft, the model will be delivered complete including all systems installations ready to fly. The model is of all traditional timber construction & will be covered in Diatex 1000 and finished in KlassKote paints. Power will be coming from a 400cc size 5 cylinder radial so the GeeBee philosophy of the biggest possible engine in the smallest possible airframe is being upheld.
