Arrow: Was it a "Boxcar" of "Packet" that your dad flew in? I think the early plane, the C-82? was called the Boxcar and later, the 119 was officially called the Packet, although most people still referred to it as the Boxcar.

However, if you're searching for info on the machines, I thought you might also try "Packet". Tex.

The C-82 was the Packet and the C-119 was the Flying Boxcar.

My dad flew C-119s too. He loved that plane. I remember in the early 50s watching formations of them peel off like fighter planes and come in for landings. Dad was fortunate to be the Commanding Officer of the 442ndTCW (Mohawks) at a time when they transitioned from C-46 Commandos to the C-119 Boxcar.

Hope you find some good plans--not too sure about the Dare kit. It is a little bigger than I want. I would like about a 36-40 inch size with 2 PJS 300s.

Arrow...There's one located a the Air Force Museum at Dayton, Ohio. I'm sure there's many more at other aircraft museums.

Have you ever seen the movie "Flight of The Phoenix?

Made five flights in them but never made a landing.

When I was a kid, we used to see 119's from the unit at Stewart Field fly over Northern Jersey all the time (Thjat's New Jersey, for all you folks on the right side of the puddle ). I remember seeing more than one with only one fan turning...

C-119 Flying Boxcar Project


Glad I found this thread! I am in the process of drawing up my own plans for the Boxcar. It will be a profile model using foam. I will fit it with outrunner electric motors. So far I have proportioned a 3 view drawing into the scale I wish to build it.

Wingspan will be 47" with a fuse length of 38".

If interested, see one of my blogs where I have three photos showing my initial drawings.

Any input with this project of mine would be welcomed.

Thanks.

Oops.......


Guess I am four years too late with this thread....

Just noticed the dates that the previous messages were posted.

If by a wild shot anyone is working on a C-119 project, I'd sure like to share information.

Thanks.....

Good!


I read their write-up. Given the quality of Dare products, & Pat's & Sparky's work, and what I consider an ideal size electric twin, that C-119 has got to be a winner, and a bargain, as well.
(Just as an FYI, the C-82 had R-2800 engines, while the C-119 had R-4360s).
The original "Flight of the Phoenix" plane was a C-82, while the plane which the crew were supposed to have escaped in, (and which Paul Mantz was killed in), was made up from parts of a Twin Beech, (R-985 engine).

I have seen the Dare C-119 fly many times at SMALL and it is indeed a winner!
