A War of Independence between Croatia and Yugoslavia began in 1991 and lasted until 1995 when Croatia won. Croatia gained its three MiG-21BIS’s in February 1992 and May 1993 when Croatian born pilots defected from the Yugoslav Air Force. The three aircraft were painted with the Croatian emblem and re-serialed 101, 102 and 103. Number 102 was flown by Colonel Ivan Selak and was named “OSVETNIK DUBROVNIKA - AVENGER OF DUBROVNIK” with the 1st Fighter squadron emblem on the port-side nose. The only survivor, 102 is on display at the 91st Air Base Museum, Zagreb-Pleso.Opening canopy

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.
