Mr Mulligan (oz13277)
About this Plan
Mr Mulligan. Radio control stand off scale model. Wingspan 52 in, wing area 420 sq in, for .30 - .40 engines and 3-4 channels.
Quote (from box packaging): "Mr Mulligan. Stand off scale. Nylon cowl and pants included. WE Cub construction.
When you look through this kit there are a few things to evaluate in it. Our Mulligan is complete with an injection moulded nylon cowling - that is complete with the cylinder valve rocker blisters. This cowling is far superior to, say, a vacuum formed cowling.
William Bros injection molded wheel pants are included in the kit. These are set off with a specially designed strong aluminum wide gear tread.
These quality parts plus other trim features that are included can produce a striking scale-like finish using a simple white film, coat covering.
This kit contains a substantial amount of lightweight string die-cut plywood. The wing ribs and tail panels are balsa. The spars and stringers are spruce.
These construction techniques were introduced in our Miss World and again in the World Engines Cub. The result is an accurate and an extremeley strong durable R/C model. The structure and covering should hardly be more than a ghood weekend project.
The prototype was test flown at Wright Field with a Supertigre 23 using only rudder, elevator and throttle control. The flight characteristics in turns were exceptional."
Note this plan is derived from the raw scan posted by ocoee96 on the AF site (see datafile). This version here has had some minor clean up, pencil marks and paper crease lines removed.
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz13277) 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_DGA-6
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.

User commentsOne thing that bothered me in every Old School kit I bought was that after opening the box and removing the contents, I was never able to repack everything the way it was, I always got a bulge here or there so the cover never really fit as it did before I laid my artless hands on the thing! Never!
Leaving this sour note behind, I must say whoever designed this box cover did show superb taste, and it's a pretty plane too.

* 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.
