Fantastic Ford Trimotor

Fantastic Ford Trimotor

Scratch-built by Joachim Damrath, this 160-inch-span Trimotor weighs in at just 53 p0unds. The beautifully detailed radial engines are hiding Zenoah powerplants (two 20cc and one 26cc in the center). Thanks to ScaleJetFred for sharing his terrific video from the Airlinertreffen meet in Oppingen, Germany.

  1. Great to see this! In 1962 at Willimantic Connecticut I flew in the Trimotor that now hangs in the Smithsonian, I’ll never forget the vibration from the center engine as the tail-dragger finally got horizontal and took off.

  2. Fine Ford. Excellent build. Love the detailed radials “hiding ” the Zenoahs. Nicely produced video. Not complaining, but I feel that the plane is a little over-powered.

  3. Fantastic plane…! Here is my rendition of the Ford Stout-AT ‘Air Pullman from 1924. It was eventually redesigned to accommodate three engines, becoming the Stout 3-AT trimotor, and again redesigned to become the more well-known Ford Trimotor.
