Used to train thousands of Navy pilots during World War II, the N2S series - the Navy version of the PT-17 Stearman - became a common civilian crop-duster and recreation plane. The PT-17 Stearman dates back to the 1930s, when the Stearman Company developed its X-70 prototype. The X-70 would go on to form the basis of the PT-13, PT-15, PT-18 and PT-27 trainers. Boeing, which bought the Stearman Company in 1934, would go on to produce almost 10,000 examples of this rugged aircraft. As the PT-17, the Stearman (known as the Kaydet in export versions) was powered by a Continental R-670 engine of 220 horsepower. The navy version, the N2S, became known as the "Yellow Peril" because of its overall bright yellow paint.

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!
