  4. Miles M.14 Hawk III/ Magister Mk.I "Egyptian, Turkish and Thai" Special Hobby 1:48 The Miles M.14 Magister was designed to meet the Air Ministry Specification T.40/36. Miles based the Magister on their existing Hawk Trainer. The Magister was a tandem open cockpit design with a low wing cantilever monoplane. The main structure was Spruce with a covering of plywood. The centre wing section was of constant section, having no dihedral. The outer sections had dihedral and tapered towards the tip. The undercarriage was fixed on the main and tail wheels. The main wheels could be covered by spa

  6. I enjoyed this build a lot, in spite of the few shortcomings of the kit. The subjects is very appealing, civil and unusual. Final notes: Read the detailed construction post: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235027304-miles-aerovan-mikro-mir-172nd/& Other than that: This is a very stubborn tail sitter. Even with quite a bit of lead it will tail seat. The landing gear is weak (because it is to-scale, which is good). So instead of adding lead -as I did-, prop the aft fuselage with the short propping leg -seen in some photos of the r
  7. This release has been posted and commented on somewhere else in Britmodeller, so I won't abound much in disquisitions. The variant released by Mikro-Mir is the IV (fourth), and includes several liveries in its decal sheet. But, if like me, you tend to diverge and follow your own path, there were other many liveries out there. Just be careful to see if they are the right variant, and not the ones with different windows or engines. Some adventurous modelers may even convert this kit to those other variants, perhaps the most extreme of which was the Hurel-Dubois/Miles HDM 105, with a high as

  14. Any Messenger lovers out there? I started work on the Aeroclub kit some time ago but I have a lot of doubts for lack of references on the subject. First, I am using this set of plans: http://smm.solidmodelmemories.net/Gallery/displayimage.php?pid=4435 Are there any better ones around? From countless photos grabbed from the web I cannot find any relationship between the windscreen (shorter and more vertical in profile vs more bulbous) and the back windows (bigger rectangular ones vs small curved) but restored aircraft sometimes change in these details. Is there a clear differentiation bet

  16. I am considering the conversion of my P.H. Model resin kit of the Miles Master I back into the much more beautiful Kestrel. I tried to find the date and circumstance of the livery in the following photo, but failed. I am almost certain that it was taken before the aircraft went for testing at the A&AEE (in December 1938, according with the Probe Probare article in Aeroplane Monthly October 1989). The radiator also seems to be smaller than in the photos showing it with the "U5" register. Is the number 2 a race number? According to the painting on the Museum of Berkshire Aviation the spin
  17. Miles Magister, pics thanks to Mark Mills. G-AKPF wearing schemes for V1075 & N7388 In overall Yellow scheme. For some information the aircraft V1075 was civilianised as G-AKPF but later rebuilt with the fuselage of N7388 an earlier aircraft. This scheme and the spats are good for N7388 but not V1075 which would have been camo over trainer yellow.
  18. Scalemates lists the Dujin kit, but also the unknown to me A-A Model, in 1/72. However, there are no more details in the page, not even a photo of the box. http://www.scalemates.com/products/product.php?id=203791 Anyone knows if this kit is still available? A Miles Falcon would be great news from Airfix! (dreaming is cheap...) Carlos
