Refinements included a new forward fuselage adapted to the new NACA cowling, installation of a new low-drag undercarriage, and fitting of a rear turtledeck to fair in the closed rear cockpit canopy. At a later date, wingspan and wing area were reduced. MODEL RMYSTERYSHIP 45 ModelR Mystery Ship At the end of the 1928 air racing season, Herb Rawdon persuaded W H Beech to build an aircraft for the 1929 season that would defeat every aircraft in its category. In great secrecy, with the help of Walter Burnham, Rawdon designed a sleek monoplane with fixed undercarriage, and a 42Shp Wright radial aircooled engine as no inline engine was available in the desired power range.
