Hi all,
in answer to recent topic and as part of my next profile set I've included the Miles M22.

Work in progress below.

Need a serial number and possibly replacement codes, any suggestions please?

Again many thanks Paul (Lark)

Peter

With "RR" squadron codes you may use c/number of some Blenheims of the 407 Sqn,some Hudsons of the 407 sqn or some Gladiators of the 615 sqn.
In my opinion the M.22 is similar to the Westland Whirlwind and you may use also "SF" (137 sqn) and "HE" (263 sqn)

Many thanks Justo.

Previously I usually culled letters from the actual manufacturer name when in doubt, but it's so much better to have more realistic possibilities.
Many thanks again.

Hi Peter

This airplane is absolutly crasy... so sleek and advanced for its time.
I love your 2 views. Can not wait to see a top view.
Could you lead me to more stuff about this subject ?
I would like to learn more about it.

Cheers.

Hi Luc
top view attached.


I found reference of it in Tony Butler's excellent book 'British Secret Projects - Fighters and Bombers 1935-1950.

And generous members here supplied me with further info and references.

Igor at Unicraft is to release a 1/72nd scale model kit of it soon.


Many thanks and best regards
Peter

Hey Peter

Thanks for the top view.
I was not expecting a wing plan like that.
It is a bit stange.
I was expecting something like the Wirlwind.
Research on the net did not bring mush so far and I can not afford the Tony Butler's book.
Could anybody help me to learn more about this bird?

Cheers.

Luc.
