Hall's Bulldog Racer Desktop Wood Model - MFMCHBRW - Mastercraft Models
Length: 15.63 inches
Wingspan: 15.75 inches
The Bulldog Racer was designed and built by Robert Hall, an engineering and test pilot in the early 1930s. Hall joined Granville Brothers Aircraft, where he was the chief engineer and help designed the Gee Bee Model Z racer. After a disagreement, Hall left the Granville Brothers and formed Hall Aircraft. There he designed the Bulldog racing aircraft, which he went on to race at the 1932 National Air Races. During the race, the Bulldog's speed was a disappointing 215.57 mph with a very top speed of 270 mph. The Bulldog finished in sixth place. There was a speculation that a restricted air inlet kept the inlet Bulldog from showing its true potential. The Bulldog was dismantled after the races were over and the engine was returned to Pratt & Whitney.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
