This 4-view for the 1927 Fokker
F-10 Trimotor "America" was scanned from my purchased copy of the February 1970
American Aircraft Modeler magazine. 4-view for this fine model was drawn by Mr.
Björn Karlström. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged.
"Around 1930 the Fokker F-10 commercial aircraft, together with the Ford Trimotor,
played important roles in equipping the fleets of American airlines. The Fokker
aircraft did its work for many years as a reliable workhorse, but then the crash
of an F-10 resulted in serious problems for Fokker in America. The Fokker F-10 was
built solely in America. Powered by three 400 hp Pratt & Whitney Wasp engines,
the F-10 at first sight looked like a three-engined F.VII adapted to the requirements
of America - and to some extent it was. The first seven F-10s were in fact fitted
with standard F.VIIIb-3m wings built in the Netherlands. The aircraft had however
a different fuselage and tailplane, Usually, American Fokker aircraft were given
both a model number and a type number. " -

The AMA Plans Service offers a
full-size version of many of the plans show here at a very reasonable cost. They
will scale the plans any size for you. It is always best to buy printed plans because
my scanner versions often have distortions that can cause parts to fit poorly. Purchasing
plans also help to support the operation of the
Academy of Model Aeronautics - the #1
advocate for model aviation throughout the world. If the AMA no longer has this
plan on file, I will be glad to send you my higher resolution version.
