    Building the Reviresco Fokker Triplane.

    This was a fairly straight forward build as long as you assemble the wings to conform to the angle of the struts.

    Remove all flash with a craft knife or needle file.

    Glue up the sides of the fuselage.

    Glue on the rotary engine.

    Check bottom wing for alignment and glue to fuselage.

    Follow the same procedure for the tail plane.

    Insert the main struts raked forward and fit the middle wing onto the struts.

    Glue the middle wing and struts in place, checking alignment with the top wing.

    Position the guns and glue on.

    Drill holes either side of the guns to aid in positioning the Cabine struts.

    Set up cabines and align with the top wing.

    Glue on the top wing.

    Drill holes for the undercart assembly.

    Assemble and glue the undercart in place.

    Spray with white primer.

    Paint the plane.

    Add the prop, pilot, and wheels.

    Micros set the decal areas and add decals.

    After 10 minutes brush on Micro sol to soften and bed in the decals.
    Allow to dry over night.

    Varnish to taste.

    No real problems with this except keeping the wing strut from bending. You may prefer replacing them with plastic rod.
