The HM.381 and HM.385 are both variants of the stock HM.380, itself a two-seat version of the single-seat HM.360.  The HM.381 has detail improvements over the original HM.380 while the HM.385 has a substantially different fuselage, struts and control arrangement to allow side doors, reverse tricycle landing gear and larger wings (9.0 m span front wing).  All of the HM.360/380 series were specifically designed for amateur construction and plans are available for free download with the Mignet family's consent at pouguide.org.  Here is a detail from the HM.385 drawings:

Hallo my dears,

the most of Mignet aircraft was mentioned here:
http://au.geocities.com/ozflea44/henri_life.html
also we know HM-370,HM-1000 and HM-1100.
the unknown was HM-22,HM-24,HM-25,HM-26,
HM-27 and HM-340;

                    DOES ANYONE KNOW THEM ?.
It seems that the HM-25 can be the aircraft refered by Mignet as MK-25, build by a Mr. K. in 1941-42 during Mignet's stay in USA (cf L'aventure americaine on Pouguide website here-attached)

Aerofiles registration index mentions:
NX 18218 "American Mignet Aircraft HM-20"
NX 18226 "American Mignet Aircraft HM-23"
NX 18240 "American Mignet Aircraft HM-21"

But for the NX 20473, the index mentions just as "Mignet HM-20?"
And this aircarft seems quite big.
