Ford Trimotor under construction

Took some time off for 2 days to clean and organize the shop for two more sub builds starting Monday but sneaked some time in on this Ford Trimotor that my friend Byron sent me. It’s a 35 year old kit made by the late company Sterling. It was still sealed and all in tack inside. The wood and plastic parts all still good.

I’m using a 250 sized brushless out runner electric motor and the other two engines will have dummy props that turn when the plane is being flown. Always liked this 30s designed. Planes from the period were just so cool looking.

I’ll sneak some more in here and there until she’s done and flying. 34 inch span. Nice size.
