|Who we are
MHM Scale Aircraft was founded by Harald Müller in August 2006 and
subsidiary of Harald Müller Metall-Sonderfertigung GmbH. The company
located in Ludwigsfelde near Berlin and its 30 employees specialize in
manufacture of high-end, custom made metal applications.
MHM Scale Aircraft is in the business of designing and building
radio-controlled scale model aircraft made entirely out of aluminum. The
prototype of our first airplane, a DHC-2 Beaver built to 40 percent scale
(1:2.5), made its maiden flight in the fall of 2007. After months of testing
and fine-tuning the aircraft, serial production has begun at our workshops.
What we offer
It is our desire to bring our clients something very special, something
has never been done before. Our Beaver is both—she’s special
and no one has
ever attempted to accomplish something of this scope and complexity, let
alone see it through to its conclusion. As you can see this aircraft is
But it’s not just the size and heft of this model that makes it unusual;
this is the first remote controlled model aircraft of this size that was
made completely out of aluminum—just like the original Beaver! The
was an instant sensation in Europe and in the United States when we
introduced it to the public in 2008.
Our product is unique and the quality of our craftsmanship is unmatched
the world—look at it as The original Beaver equivalent to fine automobiles
such as a Porsche, a Ferrari or an Aston Martin. We’re not in the
mass-produced model airplane kits; this DHC-2 Beaver is put together by
and by highly skilled model makers who are just as passionate about every
piece of sheet metal and rivet as our clients are. Each model aircraft
custom-made and built to the specifications of their owners. They decide
whether they want their Beaver to be on wheels, floats or skies—or
the above! The client chooses the color scheme and registration of the
aircraft or what radio he prefers.
So please check back often and drop us a note from time to time. In the
meantime, enjoy your stay with us on our website!
The MHM Scale Aircraft team
Harald Müller is the CEO and founder of MHM Scale Aircraft. He
was born in
1960 in Berlin, Germany. Müller has been into aviation for as long
as he can
remember and even owns a private pilot license. Working with metal is
Harald’s job—he’s the owner of a metal shop with 30 employees—and
he had a dream that just didn’t want to die: to design and build
aircraft made completely out of aluminum. CAD technology and modern
machining tools finally allowed Müller to make that dream a reality;
his team spent almost six years working on DHC-2 Beaver. Harald and his
Jeannette live in Großbeeren south of Berlin.
Manfred Schimmel, born in 1949, is the head model builder at MHM Scale
Aircraft. Schimmel was trained as a mechanical engineer and has been into
model aviation for more than 50 years. He took his first step with free
flight models; from there he advanced to control line airplanes and
eventually built his first tip-tip radio from plans published in a model
airplane magazine. Manfred’s skills as a modeler are legendary, and
hands all kinds of materials turn into works of art. Schimmel joined MHM
Scale Aircraft in 2006. Manfred has two grown children and lives with his
wife in Fredersdorf near Berlin.
James Metternich is the MHM Scale Aircraft test pilot and was born in
in Berlin. He apprenticed in fine mechanics and glass fiber engineering
his parents’ company where he remains to this day. In the mid 70s,
fell in love with model aviation and he hasn’t been able to get away
ever since. Metternich is a highly experienced competition pilot; if it
wings, James knows how to fly it. His great passion is large scale sail
planes, but he’s just as skilled piloting giant scale aerobatic aircraft—or
all-aluminum Beavers! The love for all things airborne must be inborn—
Metternich’s daughter Jamie works in the aviation industry. James
partner Ilka make their home in Berlin.
