FG Ford Tri-Motor

Printed on 110lb Staples cardstock.
Applied spray protective coating using Krylon acrylic gloss.
Burnished to imitate corrugated metal surfaces.
All supporting struts are wire reinforced.
I notified FG that the illustrated instructions show round prop hubs but there are none on the part pages.
Gloss coated windows.
Final build: wingspan 18 1/2 inches, length 12 inches.

Fine work, Bob! I can't remember ever seeing the FG Trimotor completed before.

Nice build, Bob....

But is some criticisme allowed..?

Well,
When I look at pictures of the real plane they have a flat bottom and sharpe edges there... Is this because the FG-planes have no bulkheads/formers?
Maybe you can still improve this on your actual model. Some carefull bending, I think will do the trick.

But if you're happ with it now I'm happy.

That's a great build. Guess there wasn't any interior? That would be great but it doesn't take away from you work. Again, great job.

The ones it has now are the correct type. And it was supposed to have a box fuselage.
