About this Plan
C-104 (Bucker Jungmann). Scale CL model.
Quote: "...model done by Wieslaw Schier which represents German training plane from 1935 Bu-131 Jungmann. Funny part about it is that in 1950s everything German was straight to the point forbidden [in Poland]. From that reason this nice plane had to be presented as C-104."
Model scale is 1/10. Wing span 740mm. Designer: Wieslaw Schier. Published 1955.
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsMy favourite plan is C-104 by Wieslaw Schier (PlanID: 3408). I built this model many years ago.

Actually this is a Czechoslovak designation (C-104 for Bu-131). This acft has been manufactured in Czechoslovakia both before and after WW2. There is another clue – see aircraft registration mark : OK-. OK is registration mark of acft of former Czechoslovakia, now Czech Republic. Therefore I assume, that Poland is not the right origin of acft and maybe even not of the plan. Brgs,

This is, without any doubt, a Polish plan, it was included in one issue of Wieslaw Schier's book. The reason for this being a Czech aircraft is simple. Bucker was a German plane used by the Luftwaffe - and it was either forbidden or at least frowned upon to publish models and model plans of nazi gear in communist Poland. For example we had a monthly card model publisher, Maly Modelarz, starting in 1955, and the first German model was published after 1989 when communism fell. I'm guessing that Schier really wanted to make a Bucker model but disguising it as a Czech aircraft was his way to fool the censors.

The Bu 131 was produced in Cz-Slvk by the Aero concern under German occupation, the Aero designation being C-4 using the original Hirth engines. Postwar production continued for a bit into the 50's with Walter engines, designation changing to C-104, 260 being made. Polish production occurred much later, starting in 1994 only and in very small numbers. I daresay somebody must have loved the damned planes, and who am I to tell them otherwise!

* 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.
