ScaleType: This (oz13803) 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/Douglas_C-124_Globemaster_II
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 commentsIt looks like Uncle Willie was at it again: the plan in question was published by the AMA see: https://plans.modelaircraft.org/product/douglas-c-124-globemaster/

No, I don't think it was published by the AMA. They do currently sell it at a price of $29 but I'm not sure that proves anything. Because they sell hundreds of old plans that are patently not theirs, inc for example many RCM plans, also plans from Berkeley, Sterling, Keil Kraft, Megow, Lou Andrews, Ideal, Guillow, Whitman, Comet, Hi-Flier, Joe Ott, Air Trails, FMT, MAN, Aeromodeller and Flying Models. Just for example. I assume this is because they have included the whole John Pond collection in the AMA index. Anyway. Back to the point. The thumbnails of this plan on the AMA site are branded TMHK (Tokyo, Japan). Would be interested to hear if anyone else knows more about this company and their kits. I think this is a kit plan, not a magazine plan. Would like to have a date for this listing too. I'm guessing late 1950s?

This company made a lot of cl scale models in the 60s, single and multiengined. Very often confused with Japanese company Eureka that made cl scale too. Company name on their kit boxes says "T.M.H.K Tokyo Mokei Models inc. Tokyo-Japan.
In the past I saved all the plans listed and low res plans images (bikini girls too) from deceased UW site. This is not in his list, and generally his plans are very cleaned and redrawed.

Surfing on internet rcuniverse found a pic posted by Jimmy Bananas of Globemaster kit he converted to RC [main pic, 003], a common desire for these multiengined Japanese CL kits. See: https://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/twin-multi...

Just my 2 cents worth, this kit box looks like the P-61 kit I have. My aged memory tells me that this was a line of Japanese kits sold under MANY names over the years, including Kyosho, International, maybe Aristo, and through Polks, among others. Nice apparently bandsawn ply and balsa formers, decent spun aluminum cowlings, that sort of thing. Even sprung landing gear. Single and multi engine CL scale, even a couple jets for Tiger and Dyna-jet pulse jet eardrum busters. The one I'd REALLY like to see is their B-36, for 6 .19-.29, and 4 Jetex 150s. Oh, if anybody remembers the full size C-124, they sounded like a herd of elephants when taxying.

Off-topic but well worth it: There's a story about a C-124 and an F-4 on intersecting taxiways at Rhein-Main long ago. The F-4 driver asked Ground what the Globemaster's intentions were. It is said that the C-124 pilot opened the clamshell doors in the nose and announced, "I'm going to eat you."

This looks a lot like a Royal kit, popular in the 70's and 80's. They were repackaged Japanese kits with English instructions, sold by Royal Products in the USA, had a reputation for being a bit heavy. Most were never finished. They featured a lot of balsa blocks which had to be carved and sanded to shape. It was said that a Royal kit consisted of a balsa log and a set of plans. If you bought the deluxe kit, bark was removed from the log.

* 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.
