I'm probably one of the few old timers who knows where the name came from. Galloping Comedians was a popular song back in the Day when Red Reinhart designed his model. I remember hearing it on the radio used as bumper music for one of the morning shows. I don't think the tune ever had words, all I ever heard was played on the harmonica. The station must have lost its copy because they broadcast a plea for anyone who had it to PLEASE call the station so they could continue to play the number every morning.

* 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.
