Product Description

Hobby Master  Mikoyan Mig-21 Fishbed Tail No 5112,  Lt Nguyen Hong My  North Vietnamese Air Force 1972   1/72 scale diecast metal and plastic parts.  Fully assembled. HA0181B

The Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-21 is the world most widely used supersonic fighter which has been used by over 30 countries and 56 air forces. It is the most produced aircraft since World War II with an estimation of over 10,000 in the Soviet Union alone.

The Mig-21 has a top speed of Mach 2 and has proven to be an effective and easy to maintain aircraft in many conflicts. It first achieved renown in the Vietnam War where it posed itself a challenging adversary for more technological advanced aircraft like the F-105 and F-4 Phantom. The Mig-21 is certainly one of the most famous aircraft in the world.
In the early 1960's Lt. Nguyen Hong My of the North Vietnamese Air Force was trained to fly MiG-21s in the Soviet Union and was presented his pilot wings by Ho Chi Minh. Hong My is credited with downing one American aircraft. On April 16, 1972 Hong My's MiG-21 was downed by Major Dan Cherry flying F-4D 66-7550. Lt. Nguyen Hong My broke both arms and injured his back but recovered to fly two more years. Retired Brigadier General Dan Cherry and Lt. Nguyen Hong My have since become friends.
