Mirage IIIC (oz13508)
About this Plan
Dassault Mirage IIIC. Free flight scale model for Jetex power.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Update 21/1/2022: Added 2 more scans to this plan file, thanks to Olivier. Essentially these are different drawings of the same design, with slight variations. Sheet 3 shows a version that has internally mounted Jetex motor and uses an augmenter tube.
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 (oz13508) 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/Dassault_Mirage_III
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 commentsA nice scale drawing of a beautiful aircraft. Still I wonder if the model really flew because the thrust vector of the underslung jetex passes way below the center of gravity.

Beautiful plan, and a first-class 3-view, when these do appear on plans they generally are a tiny business. The prettiest design of grumpy old Marcel Bloch/Dassault :-)

Yes it could fly. My F-102, almost an identical aircraft, with Jetex 50, flew perfectly with the motor mounted in the same position. What's so amazing is it flew so well with NO dihedral at all. Not sure Jetex is still available, mine was built maybe 58 or 59, might fly as a catapult glider.

Yes - Jetex replacements, Tendera rockets, are available from the Vintage Model Co.

I also have a 3-dimensional plan of the Dassault Mirage 3 in full size. I also have a plan of the Mirage with the jetex inside the fuselage with a tube that leads the gases to the nozzle. Alas the plan is "dirty" and Steve's heart would not resist it ;-) He would make a noise of Hotrod v8
ps: to check that the plan of the Mirage jetex published on Outerzone is at the right dimension ...

Ah, send us in the 'dirty' plan, we'll have a look at it. I can't gurantee what noise I'll make at that point though. But as long as it is high enough resolution, we can always clean it up :) re dimensions, you mean this plan here? It's scaled to match the 10cm ruler shown at bottom left. Is this not corrrect?

It's perfect ;-)

* 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.
