Beck-Mahony Sorceress by John Jennings
Description: Beck Mahoney Sorceress

I drew up these 13 inch wingspan, peanut scale plans for the Sorceress, primarily, based on the multi view drawing in Charles Mindenhall’s book “The Air Racers”. Ratz enlarged the drawing for me. Thanks, Dave. I also used information in many on line photos. Since the real plane has a 16 foot wingspan, enlarge this plan a little and you have a 1:24 model.

The real plane was modified several times to comply with racing rule changes and as a result of some landing accidents. There are at least three different chin air intakes, two different windshields, two different wheel pants as well as no pants, four different tail wheels and two lengths on the lower wing. This is a model of the early Sorceress with equal length wings and a simple windshield. The interplane struts were not needed on the real plane but the racing rules required them. Let me encourage any builder to do a little online research and make your own modifications.

It will probably be a good idea to build up around the nose.I carved plugs and vacuum formed the cheek cowls. They could certainly be carved from Balsa and hollowed. The scale tail is shown on the plan.
