Ron Sims built this nice micro model of
the not-well-known Miles M. 22 concept
Ron saw the aircraft in the November 2009 issue
of Scale Aviation Modeller International. Its lines
made him think of others, such as the de Havilland
Mosquito. The model of the M. 22 he built is foam
and balsa but, not surprisingly, some ParkZone
Mosquito parts found their way into the project.
The M. 22 has a 19-inch wingspan. The finished
weight is roughly 15 grams more than a stock
ParkZone Mosquito because it requires plenty of
nose weight to get the correct balance.
The model is finished as a high-altitude, photo
reconnaissance airplane. Krylon Short Cuts spray
paint was used for the base color.
It’s another nice model, Ron.

electric motor that gets its energy from a low-voltage,
