Neal...I'm really intrigued by the Rohrbach Ro VIII Roland. That would make a great model!  I love the lines and the early airliner looks and color!  Y'all are making it very hard for me to settle on one Trimotor!

Here's a choice right out of my own personal "fishin' hole," giving away my future builds.... Grin

Rohrbach Ro VIII Roland...passenger ship from the late 1920's...simplicity personified for a multi...all the attributes of a good flyer...high wing...lotsa wing area...box fuselage...easy cockpit and windscreen setup.

Bob...this is for you in lieu of that awful outboard engine setup on the Ford Trimotor.  I'll eventually get to it myself someday.

The D338 just looks like a perfect rubber powered model...high aspect wing, long nose, simple fuselage construction, everything that seems to say "fly me"!!

The Couzinet...not so much! But we'll just have to see!

That Couzinet fuselage is crazy - you have to build it AK!

Fernando Ramos had this beautiful Dewoitine 338 from the Dave Rees plan (https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=5053) at WESTFAC VI.  It was just spectacular.

Is anyone else interested in the Stinson A?  This Couzinet has hooked me and I'll be happy to stop work on the Stinson!

Here's another trimotor that is really unique! Maybe someone will build it! And here's the google link for more photos of the versions of this plane:

WOW! after looking at the Sterling Ford Tri-motor it looks like some modifying is in order Angry if it has any hopes to fly. Sad Unless I find another plan.

I read the plans wrong on the Fokker_super_universal. It has only one engine Roll Eyes Grin

So, that plan is off the shelf and Ill start looking at the others after I finish the Joe Ott P-51 for that campaign.

I'm in with either a Ford Trimotor and/or Northrop C-125.  Come on guys...just add a pair of fake engines to your next build...or two powered units and...why not all three?  Grin  Nothin' to it! Smiley

Let me try to inspire you...if I can do this to a Comet Phantom Fury(my bein' just an ol' country boy)...no tellin' what you can do!  Wink

Neal--?
Tom-- debating the Breguet Wibault-Penhoet 283  or the  Dewoitine D.338
Mike-- Diels SM.79
Alfakilo-- Stinson Model A (I believe)
So we need at least one more to declare to make this a cookup?  Any more out there?

I'm up for the Diels SM.79.  I need to finish the Wicko first, and if the cook up is starting soon I'd have to build it in parallel with the Sopwith Strutter that's next on my list.
