Dassault Mirage IIICJ Shahak

Designed to meet a French government specification for a lightweight, all-weather interceptor, the Dassault Mirage III was first flown on November 17, 1956. This supersonic aircraft has a tailless delta wing configuration and is capable of high speeds (a Mirage IIIA was the first European aircraft to exceed Mach 2 in level flight). It has a provision for a SEPR liquid-fuel rocket engine, which provides additional burst thrust. In production for over a decade, the Mirage III is considered one of Europe's most successful military aircraft designs, serving 20 different nations, some of whom still fly it today.

Falcon Models' 1:72 scale Mirage III is smartly constructed in diecast metal, with plastic components used for details such as engine intakes, vertical fin and removable ordnance. The solid metal wing is cleverly fitted to the fuselage, with the seams visible only on the underside. The hinged canopy opens for an unobstructed view of the cockpit's interior features, such as the pad-printed instrument panels, pilot seat and control stick. The landing gear is designed as subassemblies for quick and easily configuration. Additional features include afterburner details deep inside the engine's exhaust nozzle and both styles of supersonic fuel tanks.
