About this Plan

Mr Mulligan. Rubber scale model. Scale is 1/16.

The Paul Lindberg Mr Mulligan design originally appeared in Popular Aviation, Dec 1935. The plan here is re-drawn as a Golden Age Reproductions copy, ref 1002.

Quote: "Building Mr Mulligan, by Paul Lindberg Model Editor and Model Designer for Popular Aviation.

This ship won the Thompson trophy at the Natiuonal Air Races. We know you will find every minute interesting constructing this trim little racer. It is equipped with several interesting features: shock absorbing landing gear and moveable controls which carry aluminum hinges. This is a 3/4 inch flying scale model and all details carried on the large ship are carefully worked into the model.

Construction of fuselage. First, place waxed paper on top of the plan to prevent parts sticking to it. The fuselage sides are built from 1/16 square balsa. The longerons, verticals, diagonal braces, etc are held in place until securely cemented..."

    ScaleType: This (oz10480) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
