Personalization

NASA Gulfstream airplane model. The improved Gulfstream III followed Gulfstream American's purchase of Grumman's GA lines in 1978. The Gulfstream III first flew on December 2 1979. Changes compared with the G-II include a revised wing of greater span and area with drag reducing winglets, more fuel tankage and thus range, reprofiled nose and a 97cm (3ft 2in) fuselage stretch. Gulfstream IIBs are G-IIs retrofitted with the G-III's wing.

Production deliveries of G-IIIs began in late 1980 and continued until 1986 when production ceased in favor of the Gulfstream IV, a somewhat larger model with two new, quieter, more powerful and fuel efficient Rolls-Royce Tay turbofans.

Scale: 1/48. Wingspan 19 1/4 inches, Length 21 1/2 inches.
