About this Plan
MiG-15. Free flight scale model from Guillow.
Quote: "By far the fastest jet fighter used by the Reds in the Korean War was the Mig-15. Powered by a Russian built Rolls Royce 'Nene' centrifugal flow gas turbine, the Mig-15 furnished the chief opposition to our F-86 Sabre's for control of Korean skies."
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz11610) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikoyan-Gurevich_MiG-15
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

User commentsHere's a real piece of history, Guillow’s Mikoyan-Gurevich MIG-15 from 1954 [main pic, 003-007]. If you haven’t yet constructed a model jet, the simplicity of this design just begs to be built! The 16” wingspan is deceptive (sweep-back) because it is in actuality a fairly substantial model. This aircraft served as a genuine wake-up call for United Nations forces, emphatically demonstrating that jet combat was now the norm. While "dressed" in night-interception scheme and bearing North Korean markings, it could have indeed been flown by Chinese or even Russian pilots. The MIG-15 truly raised the stakes of aerial warfare.
Model is easily adapted for either pusher or tractor power…no CG shown on plan. Fun to build and fly, the MIG is an attention-getter for certain.
Thanks again, Steve and Mary!

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
