Scratch-built by Joachim Damrath, this 160-inch-span Trimotor weighs in at just 53 pounds. 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.
The Tri-Motor always reminds me of the Junkers JU-52. Both very cool planes from the 30’s. Builder did a nice job on this Tri-motor.
How, seeing this beautiful model of the trimotor, do not have an emotional thought for the victims of the crash of the “Junker 52”, occurred this Saturday, August 4, 2018 in the Swiss Alps, causing the death of 17 passengers and 3 members of crew!
