I seem to remember seeing one around somewhere, but just can't find it!!

Since I've been on a 'down under' kick, I figured I'd have a look at this one too.

 

I think it was the interceptor version, Mirage IIIO?

 

TIA!

I think Gramps made a stand-in IIIO using the IIIE

A real IIIO is WiP by the Mirage Factory .

There were 2 versions of the IIIO, the IIIO(F) Fighter version and the IIIO(A) for Attack

The (F)s were all converted to (A) standard over time.

Don't forget the IIIO(D) which was the family wagon! I know Gramps' version came with the tactical green camo and a double grey camo which I'm pretty sure is fictional. But does anyone know if the low viz blue/grey is in the works? If not, I might have a bash at making one... eventually :yes:

According to Meteor, Sabre and Mirage (Stewart Wilson), the double grey is real.

 

Mirage IIIO schemes:

 

Natural metal (initial scheme)

Green/Grey (As stated above, and in the mod)

Two tone grey (As stated above, and in the mod)

Dark Grey upper, Light Grey lower (not in the mod)

 

ARDU (Aircraft Research and Development Unit) had some of the best looking Mirages, they had a striking Dayglo and White colour scheme:

Prior to this scheme, they had a yellow-upper, dark green-lower scheme

 

One more, for good measure

For the 60th anniversary of the RAAF's formation, a special Mirage scheme was used, of white with red and blue trim:

I've got that book too but I don't remember seeing it. Are there any colour snaps of it or is it in black and white?
