View Full Version : Mooney 3-views

I am looking for a three view of a Mooney M-20, although I would take any of the planes. I am wanting to scratch a retract version. Any help would be appreciated.

Since I'm interested in the Mooney also, I've searched the web, but to no avail. I suppose the next step is to contact the Smithsonian Institution and Mooney Aircraft. I haven't done either yet, since my plate's full with five other scale projects - and I'm a s-l-o-w builder.:sad:

I had the same problem a couple of years ago when I was flying the Mooney Ovation II. There are no decent drawings of ANY of the Mooney range in existence as far as I can find.
However, you could get a copy of Jack Stafford's plans and reduce them to the size you need. Even the formers are drawn for you. I've got one of these plans, but I'm in Australia. You should be able to find a set closer I suspect. Let me know if you need any help though.

Jack Stafford is now out of business, but the owners appear to have kept their designs, production equipment, etc, so that's a very likely way to go!
Good thinking, oldtimer143!

I contacted the University of Texas at Dallas, which houses the Al Mooney archives. They sent me a three view in 1:20 scale.
Here's a copy of the letter from the Special Collections curator:
My name is Thomas Allen and I am a Curator of Special Collections at The University of Texas at Dallas. I have looked into your request and we can photocopy the three view document you are interested in. The problem is that it is a large fold-out poster much bigger the photocopier. We can copy each individual panel however, but you would have to assemble the individual panels into the full fold-out blue print. It will take 9 copies to photocopy the document, and we charge .20 cents a page. So the cost for photocopies would be 9 x .20 = $1.80. In addition to this we charge a $5.00 shipping and handling fee for processing and sending the photocopies to you. The total cost for a reproduction of the document would be $6.80. If you wish to purchase these copies, please contact me at Thomas.firstname.lastname@example.org, and I can give you instructions on how to pay for the material, and answer any questions you might have. Thank you for your interest in our archive and its collections.

I have this kit, is verry nice, check it.
It's not your M20, but the family resemblance is there.
Edit: Oops, original post in '07.

Hey thanks a lot. That is a nice looking kit. I have seen the three view for the Mite. I did find a three view shortly after I posted this, but I appreciate the help.

I believe one of my Flying Scale mags from several years back showed one of these in it. The interior pictures looked absolutely real.

Multiple drawings by section of the aircraft as well as an over all drawing.

I owned an M20J 201 and now an M20J 205 here is the three view from my 201 manual (the 205 is the same except has 3 main-gear doors).
