THE DASSAULT MIRAGE 2000B with a scale drawing.
Wing span 29". Length 42". Power .25 Ducted Fan.
The file will print a plan 36" by 49" and the scale drawing will print out on your home computer printer.
HISTORY: The soundness of the basic Mirage design was quickly exploited by the Dassault team and in 1961. Work was initiated on the ground attack version, IIIE, powered by the stronger Atar 09C-3 (6200 kp thrust) and redesigned fuselage (30 cm extension behind the cockpit to house the additional avionics and new tail section). This was followed by dedicated reconnaissance versions (IIIR), lightweight ground attack versions (V), the overweight and grossly over-budget Swiss variant equipped with the Hughes Taran-18 weapons system and AIM-26B Falcon missiles (IIIS), as well as the Avon-powered IIIO Australian variant.
In total more than 1400 aircraft (and more than 60 variants) were delivered which served with more than 20 nations. Truly a post-war success story, continued as the Mirage 2000 family by Dassault, and as domestically modified Cheetah's, Panters, Neshers, Daggers and Kfirs elsewhere
NOTE!. KAMDAX sells a Norvel based fan unit that is the same size.
To print the plans at home; open the TIFF file with Paint (which is included in all recent versions of Microsoft Windows) you can print the full size image on small printers. Once you have the file opened with Paint, go into page setup and tell it no centering, 0 margins and 100% size. Then, when you print it, it will be divided up into as many individual sheets as necessary to hold the full size image. These sheets can then be fastened together to make one big sheet. I strongly suggest useing "glue sticks" found at any store to fasten the sheets together.
These are high resolution TIF files and PDF files containing 200 x 200 dots per inch.
The 2 files will print 2 small plans printed on 21" wide x 24" paper. WOW, it would be so easy to enlarge this plan at a commercial printer for a larger wing span but keep her electric PLEASE.
Really nice plans for a SMALL 38" wing span plane powered by a 6 Volt Speed 400. Designed by Nick Ziroli and built from real Balsa Wood....... Aren't you tired of converting those cheap little crappy foam ARFs back into peanuts? I did one in 40 feet! Lets do the math. Cost $120, Flight 40 feet, lesson learned, Priceless!
60" wing span. 44" length. Power .45 to .60. Wing Area 705 sq. in.
Well drawn plans. A nice little WWI bomber designed for visits to the front line.
I see no machine gun on the plane? I wonder if it had them?
One of the first all metal planes but yet still built with open cock pits for for that macho look and feeling!
This is a high resolution TIF file and PDF containing 200 x 200 dots per inch.
The file will print a plan 36" x 52".
Packing for a vacation?
Northrop P-61 "BLACK WIDOW",
57" wing span. 41"length. Power: 2 O.S. Max .10's shown.
The file will print a plan 36" by 87".
Avro Lancaster Bomber
74"wing span. 50"length. Power: 4 540 electric motors (and NO it cannot be converted to gas). .... Plans show a wiring diagram. Bomber has landing gear that lowers before landing after hand launching. How cool !!!!!!
History: The Avro Lancaster Bomber was the heavy weight champion of World War II. It was the only wartime bomber capable of carrying the 22,000 pound (9,988kg) Grand Slam bomb. On May 1943, it carried out the famous Dam Busters raid. It was maneuverable and could take alot of punishment. Its defence armament was effective, and combined with it's heavy bombload which had a great influence on the outcome of the war on the Western Front, it will go down as one of the greatest aircraft of history.
