The Gee Bees were the most successful racing aircraft in the late 20s to mid 30s, during the so-called golden years of the air race. Constructed around the giant Pratt & Whitney radial engine, they were uncompromisingly designed for speed.
The Gee Bee R3 is a further development of the types R1 and R2. Due to the longer fuselage, it should have significantly better flight characteristics and be easier to land. Unfortunately, the R3 did not get beyond the construction phase. The age of air races and the associated high prize money was over and the R3 was no longer built.
Horst Streicher, owner of the company STO, the documents of this Gee Bee fell into the hands and for him one thing was certain: It must be available as a model! Constructed by STO in CAD, with CNC milled master models or forms and our know-how in GRP sandwich construction, we have brought an unusual highlight in aviation history to life in teamwork. The Gee Bee, equipped with our MOKI radial engine, is the attraction of every air show!
