Description
Scale Model Planes This Doolittle R3C Racer Model Airplane is a replica scale model of the original Curtiss Doolittle R3C-2 Racer model aircraft. Doolittle R3C Racer Model Airplane is crafted from wood and is an impressive aviation gift. Our Doolittle R3C Racer model aircraft arrives fully assembled and includes a display stand.

This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.

Doolittle was first a civilian superstar before becoming a war hero. Below is a great shot of Jimmy Doolittle during his racing days courtesy of the Air & Space Museum.
