Yes, there's quite some similarity between the Miles aircraft and the Train/Walter Mikron-engined Chilton. How big is your Hawk Six? Whatever, it's a beautiful bird.
Perhaps I'll just build the airframe and pass it on for finishing
Long builds - a very, very, very good way to keep a build going is too do something, no matter how small every day.
It used to make smile, how similar building a full-size aircraft was to building a model. But I still got someone else to paint it!
I think I'll go for something a little less challenging. I have drawn the plans for a 1/4-scale Bristol Brabazon on the back of an HMRC final demand. I'll send it off to Leon for cutting today.
I feel that the plan is the problem, it would be good if Phil Kent could comment if he is able, as there are now 2 editions of this plan, the latter one accomadates the Laser 180 IIRC, I am sure Leon would not have mentioned the updated plan if this was not the case
I suppose the obvious thing to do is to take the plan as gospel
and build a stonking good Chilton. I may still do that.
