Beechcraft G-17 S Staggerwing #AMT0019
Beechcraft G-17 S Staggerwing
Civil Aircraft

The Beechcraft Staggerwing was arguably one of the finest civilian aircraft ever produced.  The Staggerwing was the “brainchild” of Walter Beech, whose goal was to manufacture a high performance five place luxury commercial aircraft with sound aerodynamics and ease of control coupled with a top speed of over 200 m.p.h. and a landing speed of 60 m.p.h..  Tests of the first model 17 in 1932 yielded performance figures superior to many fighter aircraft of the day.  The B-17 L of 1934 featured retractable landing gear and set the pattern for all subsequent Staggerwings through the G-17 S, which was built in 1948.  From 1933 through 1948 only 781 Staggerwings were manufactured, of which 353 were commercial models and 428 were produced for military use.  More than 150 of the 250 existing Staggerwings  are licensed and flown regularly by their proud owners, many of which are commercial airline pilots.  The Beechcraft G-17 S is powered by a 450 horsepower Pratt & Whitney R-985 Wasp Jr. 9 cylinder radial engine, which gives it a top speed of 212 m.p.h. and a maximum range of 1,300 miles.  This older, out-of-production Beechcraft G 17 S Staggerwing scaled model includes the following features: 1) Authentic Beechcraft G-17 S graphics & N serial number; 2) Clear plastic windshield & door windows; 3) Detailed cabin interior; 4) Detailed radial engine; 5) Detailed landing gear; 6) Molded in yellow colored plastic; 7) Simulated fabric covering; 8) Painting guide and 9) Illustrated assembly instructions.  The box is in Like-New condition.  Never started and 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions inventoried.
