Airfix 1/72 Ford Tri-Motor...

A lot has already been done. This build was first in the 80 Years of Airfix group build thread.

This morning the weather is good enough, so I shot some primer, in this case Tamiya XF-2 Flat White. Tomorrow, I'll spray the color, Tamiya Flat Red XF-7. After that the overall color for the airplane will be AK Xtreme Metal Dark Aluminum. Thanks for looking in.

OK. On the bench: Way too much to build in one lifetime, but everything is in the one true scale...

Oh Boy!

    What an interesting looking Bomb. Looks like it has a lot of arming circuits on it. Are you sure the Tri-Motor can carry it? LOL.LOL.LOL.

The Trimotor can carry anything you can strap on it!! Here is a completely unapologetic thread hijack - did you know there actually was a bomber version of the Trimotor? One airplane built for contract competition, crashed and killed Ford's chief test pilot. I have 3 of the Revell 1/77 trimotors under construction now, want to model each of the Fords I flew for EAA.

Have you flown a Ford lately?

I'll be doing a little more painting on the Ford today.
