The 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.
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
the next few days.
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.
Our next scale and flyin will be on Sunday the 22 nd of September
Please make a note and try and come down, same as last time relaxed atmosphere and lots
of interesting aircraft. Any type of models it doesn’t have to be scale.
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
Hoping for good weather on our scale day Sunday 21st. July
