      Robert;

      Well, there was the Caproni Ca.4 series, including the Ca.48 airliner;



      It not only was a triplane, it had three full-length fuselages into the bargain.

      It lasted into the 1920s, and had the dubious distinction of being the first commercial airliner to crash in Italy. The bomber version was used by the Italian Army, plus the RFC and even the U.S. Army, from 1918 to around 1927.

      Sincerely,

      Carl B.

      Wow! A Triplane torpedo bomber, and made after WWI as well?
       
      Not one I have ever heard of.
       
      Were there any other triplanes made after WWI?
       
      UPC made some interesting kits, ranging from astonishingly good to pretty poor.
       
      Thanks, Jean!

      Giday Boxsters,
      Another Monday ... a new Free Download.
      This weeks is a doozy!
      From the historical archives of the Imperial Japanese Navy, the Chairman presents the boxart that Scott Eidson did for the UPC release of the Mitsubishi 1MT1N, Japanese Navy Type 10.
      The 1MT was designed by Sopwith designer, Herbert Smith and featured a triplane configuration.
      The design first flew in 1922, but it was not able to operate from a carrier when torpedo armed.
      Only 20 of them were made and they were all scrapped long before WWII.
      I was able to ferret out a dozen images of this unusual aircraft for your enjoyment.
      Before they gave up on the design one was converted to a float plane.
      All the images are 1280 pixels.

      Jean
