    RE: Any Info on Mills Aircraft Models

    This is one that I don't remember ever hearing about. There were a number of regional kits back in the day. The Blackjack, the Edge, were a couple of others. It is interesting to see how the thinking on quickie design has evolved over time. For instance, on this design the wing is inset inside of the fuselage, while today this is seldom done. For one thing, this increases the surface area of the fuselage, and would require the tank to be installed in front of the wing. It also appears like the side profile of the fuselage is symmetrical, while many of today's designs droop the nose slightly (in part this improves the tank to engine relation with CG tanks, but may also help lower drag).
