Default Miles Aerovan 36" span scratch build

This build will use keel and former construction, using a 3-view for the plan. As usual, the necessary formers and keels have been derived from the 3-view drawing without CAD assistance. For whatever reason, there are few color photos of the plane, even though it was built after WWII. One interesting color scheme that would certainly be original, would be the IAF camo scheme, which I have in mind. There is a multi-view color rendering of it, which seems to agree with B/W photos of the plane.
