Looking good. It just seems a shame to hide all of that lovely wood.

Every mm is a compound curve... building a scale Gee Bee is like navigating the globe.
Flying a Gee Bee is like navigating the globe on a unicycle.

Hannes, It's a work of art. I'm going to start saving money for when you make them available. What is that grey metallic coating?

We are very proud to announce that AIRWORLD will take over the production and distribution of the 50% GeeBee R2!

With Dieter & Tommy we have found the perfect partners for this project.

At the moment the first fiberglass parts are in making & we will start building the prototype shortly. As soon as flight testing is complete, the kit can then be ordered from Airworld.

Of course we offer a construction service for the model in our house.
