1/48 T638 AMT Beechcraft G17S Staggerwing
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good++
From the 1970s. Kit is well molded and includes interior and engine detail and optional position landing gear. Never started. Factory sealed parts bag with decals and instructions. The Staggerwing is still considered one of the finest civil aircraft designs to reach mass production. The brainchild of Walter Beech, the G17S had a top speed of over 200 mph and landed at 60 mph - all in 1932. It was faster than many fighter planes of the day.
