About this Plan

Miles Student. Free flight scale model jet trainer. For Jetex power. June 1956 Aeromodeller.

Quote: "Build this accurate scale model of a prototype that will soon be making headlines. Suitable for Jetex 100 or Jetmaster. Designed by JOHN A. FLEMING

THE MILES STUDENT is the newest jet-trainer under construction today. Descended from the first monoplane trainer to see service with the Royal Air Force it is powered with either one Blackburn Turbomecca Marbore 2 or two Palas 600's.

Though primarily a side-by-side trainer it can be adapted as a fast four-seater communications aircraft or used in a modified form, as a ground attack aircraft. The large doors enable easy access to the cabin (floor of the Student is only 18in from the ground) and in the air a bale-out can be made without fouling any part of the structure. Thus weight and complications of ejector seats has been eliminated.

Span with tip tanks (not fitted on the model) is 28 feet, length 27 feet, and maximum speed with the Marbore engine is estimated at 300mph.

Undercarriage as well as tip tanks have been omitted on the model to give a light structure and a large hatch beneath the fuselage allows the Jetex motor to be easily removed.

Before beginning construction carefully study the plan. When all the parts have been cut out build up the crutch from 1/4 in x 1/16 strip and sheet and then cement the upper fuselage formers and tailplane incidence pieces in position. The roof and sub-formers on F5 are added as well as the jet inlet sides. A sheet of thin celluloid between formers F5 and F6 completes the jet inlet. The hard 1/16 sheet tailplane is cracked on the centre line and the template determines the dihedral..."

    ScaleType: This (oz2004) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

Another model built from the Outerzone list, oz2004 Miles Student [main pic]. Also a good flyer.

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
