Ford Model 8-ATS Floatplane – 40in wingspan

$8.00

The 1931 Ford 8-ATS was perhaps the most attractive of the Ford Trimotor variants.   Powered by a 12 cylinder 650hp Hispano Suiza engine this aircraft was intended for mail/cargo transport work.  Our 40in wingspan Free Blight Rubber Scale model is mounted on lightweight floats and is a majestic flyer, consistently taking off and landing on water.
