Bristol Racer
This barrel-shaped racer was built for the 1922 British Aerial Derby, but a British labor strike prevented its participation, and also kept it out of the 1922 French Coupe Deutch. Model has a very short nose, but ample wing area makes it a good little flier if you keep the tail light! All red with white lettering.

Cessna's fastest and most famous racer! In its short 61 day life, this little radial engined racer won every race it entered, and set a World Speed Record for aircraft with engines of less than 500 cid. A nice little flier. All yellow with red trim and black numbers.

Chambers R-1 Chambermaid
With a wingspan of only 13 ft. 8 inches, Russ Chamber's retractable gear speedster was one of the smallest racers ever built. Tragically, Russ died after a forced landing, and the racer never flew again. Russ's excellent design translates into a great No-Cal. It's a popular subject and a good flier. All yellow with black race and registration numbers.

Floyd-Bean Special
A sleek little racer (wingspan only 13 ft. 10.5 inches!) with retractable gear. Damaged landing gear kept it out of the 1939 Greve Trophy race.

Wittman Bonzo
Steve Wittman's Bonzo was one of the fastest homebuilt racers of the Golden Age. It almost won the 1937 Thompson race till the magnetos quit. It finished 3rd in the 1938 Thompson and 5th in the 1939 Thompson, both times being slowed by engine trouble. As a No-Cal, the short, wide wing gives lots of wing area. It has a long tail though, so keep it light! All red with black trim.
