The FF-1, G-5, or "Fifi" was an American biplane fighter aircraft; it was Grumman’s first aircraft design for the US Navy and was operated during the 1930s. The FF-1 was a two-seat design, with an enclosed cockpit, fuselage of all-metal construction, and wings covered largely with fabric. The first order of FF-1s were delivered to Fighter Squadron VF-5B of the USS Lexington beginning in June 1933. The FF-1 was withdrawn from first-line US Navy squadrons by the end of 1936 and reallocated to reserve units. A few surviving FF-1s were modified with dual controls, redesignated FF-2, and used for instructional duties.
This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
