About this Plan

Travel Air Mystery Ship. Rubber scale model.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 23/12/2023: Added parts sheet and instructions, thanks to dfritzke.

Quote: "Here it is - the World's Most Beautiful Model! When our engineers designed this model, they had one object in mind, to make it as near to scale and as realistic as possible, without sacrificing strength or flying qualities.

There are several new features on this plane. These include the aluminium NACA cowling and thrust bearing, the novel installation of the cowling which permits the use of a gear winder, the four-piece bulkheads, and the veneer fuselage covering.

Before begining construction it would be well to read the instructions once or twice. Become thoroughly familiar with the drawings and the photograph of the original plane. Many parts of the model will become clearer upon consulting this photograph.

The easiest and quickest way to construct the model is to cut and sandpaper all wood to correct size and shape before starting the actual construction. When patterns are needed do not cut up the plans. These patterns may be obtained by tracing them on tracing paper..."

Update 24/12/2023: Added full page ad from MAN, April 1931, thanks to Pit.

Update 24/12/2023: Added 3 more full page ads to that PDF file, thanks to Pit. These are all from MAN in 1931/2.

    ScaleType: This (oz7678) 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.

This plan has no formers or ribs. Neither is there a solid line drawing of either wing panel. Could it be missing one page or simply the sheet wood parts? Regardless of what's missing, it seems to be an incomplete plan.

Where are the bulkhead configurations?

This is all we have, at the moment. It's tagged as incomplete. Maybe more will come along in time.

Well, it only took me 6 years to stumble on the parts and instructions for this one. This is why I don’t trash anything untill I see it posted here for all to see and get disseminated across the globe!

* 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.
