About this Plan

Howard GH-1 - Rubber scale model. The subject GH-1 was the utility transport version of the DGA-15 built for the United States Navy.

Quote: "Mister Mulligan joins the Navy. A realistic high performance scale model of the new Navy Howard personnel transport plane ...While the transport planes do not have the spectacular appeal of fighters, scouts and dive bombers, they are a most necessary part of naval aviation. Essentially these workhorses of the flying fleet are adaptations of commercial ships, their mission being to provide aerial services of all kinds.

One of the latest type planes to be acquired by the US Navy for light transport duty is the Howard GH-1. Ideally suited to this task, it has a convertible cabin for passengers, cargo, a stretcher for patients, space for mail or express, or for use in aerial photography.

Howard airplanes were developed from Ben Howard's famous racer 'Mister Mulligan', winner of both the Thompson and Bendix Trophy races in 1935. Remarkably similar to the race plane prototype. Howard military and commercial transports are noted for their outstanding performance, ruggedness and ease with which they are flown.

The model plans have been carefully prepared so they will serve either as the basis for a flying or scale model. Proportions of the real plane make possible an attractive model with exceptional flying characteristics. You are sure to be fully satisfied with the stable, swift flights of this little ship if you build it according to these instructions..."

* 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.
