Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 Lt. Nguyen Hong My, North Vietnamese Air Force (NVAF), April 16, 1972 (Vietnam War)

1:72 Scale.  Length: 8".  Wingspan: 3.75"

In the early 1960s Lt. Nguyen Hong My of the North Vietnamese Air Force (NVAF) was trained to fly MiG-21s in the former Soviet Union and was presented his pilot wings by Ho Chi Minh. He was credited with downing one American aircraft during the Vietnam War. On April 16, 1972 his MiG-21 was shot down by USAF Major Dan Cherry flying F-4D Phantom II #66-7550. Hong My broke both arms and injured his back but recovered to fly for two more years. Retired Brigadier General Dan Cherry and Lt. Nguyen Hong My have since become friends.

The MiG-21 is a supersonic jet fighter, designed by the Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau in the former Soviet Union. Some 50 countries over four continents have flown the MiG-21, and it still serves many nations over a half-century after its maiden flight in 1955. It is the most-produced combat aircraft since the Korean War, and it had the longest production run of a combat aircraft (1959 to 1985 over all variants).

Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
