Looking for scale drawings

Lets try my luck here.... I am looking for scale drawings of a French Jodel Mousquetaire (D-140). I am flying the plane occasionally and we are now working on making a computer model for Microsoft Flight Simulator. I have an abundance of photos of them, all sorts and sizes, but nowhere can I find drawings showing the aircraft front, side and top.

 

Any help or tips would be very much appreciated!

Hello Francois,

I know that the Jodel D150 Mascaret plans I purchased from SAB had a nice three view, but no cutaway cross sections. I assume the basic cross sections are what you are looking for.

If anyone would know of some the Jodel Yahoo group would be the best source, but I'm sure you probably know about the group.

 I didn't try SAB because I know they went belly-up soewhere 2000 or 2001. But your tip sparked my renewed Googling and I found some related sites. Thanks !

Try jodel.com. There is a lot of info about everything Jodel. There was a company from Beaune or Dijon France that was selling the plans. At Jodel.com, there is a complete construction log and extensive photos  of the plane you are looking for that a French businessn man built in an 18 month span. It was a great looking plane.

Hi Mike, thanks. Yes, I know Jolde.com and went through all of it a couple times already.

I also wrote an email (in French even!) to Avions Jodel, the heirs f the original designers, who sell the plans. But no reply yet :-( I asked them for something a little cheaper than $ 1000... I'm not going to build a real one (unfortunately).

Hi Lymans,

 

thanks ! But we already found that and it is not detailed enough for a CAD drawing :-)
