Miles M.52 Free Aircraft Paper Model

This aircraft paper model is a Miles M.52, a turbojet powered supersonic research aircraft project designed in the United Kingdom in the mid 1940s, the paper model was created by Hol_nice, and the scale of the papercraft is in 1:72.

In 1946 the Air Ministry controversially changed the project to a series of unmanned rocket-powered scale aircraft, launched from a modified de Havilland Mosquito. In a successful test flight Mach 1.38 was achieved by a scale model in normally controllable transonic and supersonic level flight, a unique achievement at that time which validated the aerodynamics of the M.52. At that point the ministry cancelled that project and issued a new requirement which was to result in the English Electric Lightning. Work on the afterburning version of the Power Jets W.B.2/700 turbojet was also cancelled and the Power Jets company was incorporated into the National Gas Turbine Establishment.
