Miles M.18 Mk.2 – 24in wingspan


The Miles M.18 was a WW2 era two seat trainer aircraft evaluated by the British Air Ministry as a possible replacement for the Miles Magister.  One M.18 Mk2, powered by a Blackburn Cirrus inline engine, was produced and served as a communications aircraft for Miles throughout WW2.  This model construction plan presents the Mk2 in post-war civil colors and racing markings.

With a 24 inch wingspan, this Miles M.18 is easy to construct with a box and former fuselage, flat center section low wing and a simple single-strut landing gear.  The model features lightweight construction and has terrific moments for a free flight flying scale model.   Check the Internet for the military color scheme if you plan to enter FAC Low-Wing Military Trainer event competition.

Qualifies to fly in FAC Scale and FAC Low-Wing Military Trainer events.


Designed by noted Free Flight sport and scale model airplane designer Tom Nallen, this black and white plan includes full-sized top, side and front views of all components such that they can be built directly over the plan.  Stick and sheet balsa stock dimensions are indicated on the plan and all sheet balsa parts are printed full-size for use as templates in cutting out accurate parts to construct the model framework.  This is a Beginner/Intermediate-level Free Flight Flying Scale model to build and fly and is a good follow-on to a rubber powered free flight sport model.

Model construction plan fits on a single Architectural D (24 x 36 inches)  sheet.
