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.
