jerry Behrens plan service-Travel Air

In High Flight article vol. VI page 8 1983-Chuck Spencer reviews: Travel Air 4000-Jerry Behrens.
In this article it mentions a plan of Jerry Behrens --99 inch wingspan. it has other details and then---in the last paragraph says "A good sixty size model ot the Travel air D4Dand article are obtainable from Model Builder Magazine,
these were published in November 1978. The article earlier mentions Behrens Plan Service (no more) and states; "A partial kit and a full kit are available also (in addition, to the 99" inch plans)
Help locating kits or plans or original articles would be very helpful. I know it is old, but then so are many of us!

Bill Northrop used to handle the old MB plans. Google his name and I'm sure you'll find it.

Jerry Behrens passed away 6/9/05
As for his plans the originals and most of the equipment was sold to a person with little or no interrest in rc or his plans service. [don't ask] Fortunatly his plans were popular and and can be found in some of the "for sale" forums. try posting in the "item wanted" some one should have a set they'd part with.
Good luck
Dan
