1:350 Gulfstream IV-SP
The Gulfstream IV-SP is a long range, large corporate transport. Work on the Gulfstream IV a significantly improved, larger, longer ranging and advanced development of the earlier II and III began in March 1983. Improvements included the Rolls-Royce Tay turbofans, which bring significant fuel burn and noise emission improvements despite their higher thrust output than the II and III\\'s Speys, a stretched fuselage and aerodynamically and structurally improved wing with 30% fewer parts, greater fuel capacity and range, increased span tail plane and an advanced EFIS avionics suite with six color CRT displays. The improved Gulfstream IV-SP (Special Performance) replaced the IV at serial number 1214 in 1993. Both the Gulfstream IV and IV-SP have set a number of records. In the most recent, a GIV-SP set new world speed and distance records on a routine business flight from Tokyo to Albuquerque in March 1993. This 1/350 scale model of the GIV-SP includes 47 parts and was designed to allow the modeler multiple options for displaying the model. Parts are provided to allow the model to be displayed in-flight, or on the tarmac. If displayed in-flight, the model may be displayed with the landing gear up, or extended. Flaps may be positioned in the up position or fully down. A hole has been provided in the underside of the fuselage to accommodate a 1/16 rod. If displayed on the tarmac, the model may be displayed parked or moving, with the thrust reversers activated, if desired. If displayed parked, an open door, with the access ladder to the cabin, has been provided. The windshield and windows are printed in clear plastic allowing a peak at the interior. Two interior options are available, the Executive Aft Galley 12/5, and the Universal Aft Galley 14/6. A part list is provided and a file containing a decal sheet for N702GH GIVSP, captained by Ronald Sanctuary for Jet Edge International, is available for download.
