Winter Builds. Miles M57 Aerovan by Chris Challener

imageThe Miles M57 Aerovan was a British  light transport aircraft twin engined and first flew in January 1945. Two man crew and max speed 127mph cruise speed 110mph

The model Chris is building is from a plan by Tony Nijhuis and is to 1:10th scale it will be powered  by  two brushless motors. The wingspan is 59inch. Chris bought the short kit from Sarik models,  this means all the ribs and formers are cut out for you and you add the strip and sheeting, this saves you hours of time cutting those parts out.

Winter builds

Over the last week or so I’ve been asking the members to share on the pmac whatsapp group what they are building over winter and to put up pictures of their progress. I’ve decided to put  these on our website also,     as I’m sure people will find some interest in the builds. First up is Ian

Hague with his De Havilland Mosquito built from the Brian Taylor plans. Ian sent me this   description and some pictures.

The Mossie is 81 inch wingspan from the B.T. Plan and a Sarik short kit [ used to be Traplet ] Its been 2 years in the making with many Priority interruptions. Hopefully I’ll finish it this winter. The undercarriage remains a challenge but apart from that everything is to hand to be able to finish.The motors and props are sourced. The hubs to the props are quite thick which meant having to turn new longer prop drivers

Thanks for that Ian keep a look out and I’ll try to get the other builds on the Webb page over imageimageimageimageimageimage

the next few days.

Scale day change

The weather this Sunday the 22 nd  looks wet so we are moving it to tomorrow Saturday  21 st. September

With a bit of luck the sunny weather will hold out for us, sorry if you can’t make it because of the short notice but we hope to do another one in October.


Scale and fun fly this Sunday 21st. July

Bring along your scale models this Sunday even if they are not finished we would like to see them . If you don’t have one bring your favourite sports model and have fun. Let’s hope the weather is good, no wind a little bit of cloud and warm. Even better why not stick your barbecue in the car and make it a party atmosphere. Look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. Mike
