Historic Tin Goose Flown Over South Pole In 1929 Antarctic Expedition

Modeled from Official Prints and the actual airplane now in Henry Ford Museum

Guaranteed 100% Original - No Reproduction Parts

This Kit Includes  Snow ski landing gear and interchangeable wheels, dog team and sled and crew in parkas.

In all aeronautical history, it would be difficult to find even one airplane with more drama, word venture, and more rugged versatility attached or within the famous Ford tri-motor.

 

Affectionately known as the tin goose, this outstanding airplane, with its corrugated aluminum skin, was the first all metal airplane, and the first commercial aviation transport, designed and built in the United States. It was also one of the very first airplanes to carry passengers for the Pioneer Airlines of this country.

 

Built by the Ford Motor Company, the first of this most revolutionary aircraft was unveiled at Detroit in 1926. In it, combined for the first time in one airplane for such developments as enclosed pilot cabins, rakes, heaters, full cantilever wings and doughnut tires.

 

Most of the US airlines bought for tri-motors and many of today`s leading air routes were opened and developed with this versatile airline pioneer. As flown by the airlines, each plane could accommodate 11 passengers in a cabin that had an average with of only 4 1/2 feet.

 

In 1929 Admiral Richard E Byrd on one of his Antarctic expeditions, included a Ford Tri-motor, equipped with skis, in his equipment. it was in this Ford that this great explorer made his famous flight over the South Pole. This actual airplane is now a part of the aviation exhibit on display at the Henry Ford Museum, in Dearborn Michigan

 

The wingspan of the Ford Tri-motor 4-AT is 74 feet and overall length is 49 feet 10inches. The three engines gave it a cruising speed of 110 mph and a top speed of 130 mph. Empty weight is only 6500 pounds. Simplicity is the keynote of construction. Control horns and control wires are mounted outside the airplane. Passenger seats are of woven reed. Instruments for the side engines are mounted on the strut above the nacelles and viewed from the cockpit. The entire surface of the airplane is constructed of corrugated aluminum.

More than 30 Ford Tri-motors were still being flown commercially in 1956 more than a quarter century after being built. It is even now, called the best ship available for carrying heavy loads into tricky fields.

I am not a MONOGRAM expert so I will defer to those who are. I will let the over sized images do the talking. OVERALL CONDITION IS BETTER THAN NEAR MINT
