    ScaleType: This (oz5139) 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.

Hello Steve, I love your website! I just downloaded your Mr. Mulligan plan by Sterling Models. I have been looking for that plan for years! Thanks!!! Dad, an ex WW-2 U.S. navy pilot, and I built this kit in 1948. This model has great sentimental value for me as it was the very first model I was ever involved in building. I recall during the summer of 1948 when I was 8 years old we passed two boys flying a gas powered control line Piper Cub in a local park. I made my mother stop so I could watch. This was the first time I have ever seen a gas model and I begged my mother to take me to get one. She took me to the local hobby shop where Mom bought me the Sterling Mr. Mulligan kit and we took it home. Needless to say, it was far beyond my skills, so I got my father to build it and I watched every bit of it - and even sanded and glued a couple of pieces! Dad really did the work and it won a trophy at a local department store contest. That trophy was my prized possession and sat on my bedroom dresser for years. This was really what started me into building model airplanes. Thanks again Steve for the great memory in seeing this old plan again! Sincerely,

* 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.
