The gloriously chumky T-840 was claimed by its designer, Wally Timm, to have more safety features than any airplane built thanks to its fresh design approach (tricycle undercarriage,wind slots,etc). The prototype was powered by a pair of 400hp Wright R-975’s and in its construction was employed “Aeromold”, a new plastic-bonded plywood -it was known as the “Aeromold Transport” for that . It made its maiden flight in Nov,1938…. and have no takers.
