Enrich your home with the adventurous character Ford Trimotor 1930s Scale Model Plane

This intricate Ford Trimotor 1930s Scale Model Plane depicts Henry Ford's foray into air transportation, after his successful Model T transformed the automotive industry.

The Trimotor featured three powerful engines and external wires that actuated both the rudder and elevators. Unlike most planes of the era, the trimotor ailerons and other control surfaces were made of corrugated sheet metal, as were the body and wings, hence the nickname the "Tin Goose".

For the first time, leisure and not just reliability helped fuel interest in air travel. Transcontinental Air Transport teamed up with the luxury Pullman rail system to provide coast-to-coast services from New York to Los Angeles.

The surface textures and detailing are true to the original design, including functioning ailerons and tail rudder. Take a peek through the transparent portholes to check out the cabin inside.

This replica is a testament to the rugged ingenuity of one of true aeronautical innovators.

  • Flat or corrugated metal sheet attached to a lightweight frame
  • Functioning ailerons and tail rudder
  • Detailed cabin viewable through portholes
