FROG 340P Miles Master, International Model Aircraft, 1963
"MILES MASTER III
In general, the most interesting and colourful aircraft schemes and markings of the Second World War were sported by operational machines, but training aircraft, many of which made extensive use of yellow in their finishes, should not be ignored, and a welcome newcomer from Frog is the Miles Master III.
The Master kit is well up to the standard that has now come to be expected from Frog, and is well moulded in yellow plastic and accurate in dimensions and detail, the only real criticism, and that a minor one, being the excessive thickness of the tailplane. Spanning 6 5/6 inches and to 1/72nd scale, this kit may be adapted as a Martinet target-tug, and we will provide details of this conversion next month. One of the features of the Master was
the lid-cum-screen provided the instructor whose seat had a wide range of adjustment, permitting him to pop his head above that of the pupil, and the lover of gimmicks should have little difficulty in hinging the rear top panel of the canopy and installing an adjustable seat.
Of course, as the Master featured fabric and plywood covering, there is no call for rivet detail on this model, but in any case, the present range of Frog 1/72nd kits wisely make no attempt to indicate rivets, unlike those of some other manufacturers who persist in scattering more rivets over their models than weeds in a cabbage patch. At this scale only the main panel joins should be indicated, and a profusion of rivet heads takes some removing if a really neat model is demanded.
