I'd been meaning to post my opinion about this MOC a few days ago, but as I was thinking about it got interrupted by a telephone call and forgot all about it.
Other people have already told you that the wings really ought to be more rectangular and you might move them forward a bit.
What lets the MOC down is the shape of the fuselage. If you look at just about any picture
of a triplane, you'll see that the top of the fuselage is practically horizontal and that the bottom slopes up towards the tail. Right now, the tail on yours looks as though you ran out of parts. Trying to stick closer to that shape would also solve the problem you are having with the pilot sitting too low.
You'll see that the wheels tend to be attached to fairly thin stalks quite far under the fuselage. That's not easy to replicate on something this small, but you might try to see whether you can build something abit less bulky then you have now.
Despite this, the overall look is pretty good. I think the propellor looks fine, although you perhaps replace it with an actual propellor part
. I like your use of a 4x4 round brick for the engine. It might not be the most sophisticated thing to do, but it looks the part. The stickers are nice. I also like the wheels, although I suspect they're a bit too big. The pilot looks fine to me and the pictures are nice and well-focused
