Description

Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

MiG-15bis Captain Nikolai Sutyagin, 17th IAP, 303rd IAD, Soviet Air Force, Tatung-kao airfield, June 1951 to January 1952 (Korean War)

1:72 Scale.  Length: 6".  Wingspan: 5.5"



Built at Factory No. 1 in June 1950, MiG-15bis c/n 121032 was flown by Capt. Nikolai Sutyagin of the 17th IAP of the 303rd IAD during the Korean War. Sutyagin operated from the Tatung-kao airfield between June 1951 and January 1952, becoming an ace by the end of June. During this time period he claimed 22 victories over American pilots while always flying MiG-15bis # 132. In January 1952 the aircraft was handed over to the 821st IAP of the 190th IAD.

The MiG-15 was a Soviet jet fighter aircraft. An improved variant, the MiG-15bis, entered service in early 1950. It achieved fame in the skies over Korea where, early in the war, it outclassed all fighters. The MiG-15 also served as the starting point for development of the advanced MiG-17 which would oppose U.S. fighter jets over Vietnam in the 1960s. The MiG-15 is believed to have been one of the most numerous jet aircraft ever made, with over 12,000 built. Licensed foreign production perhaps raised the total to over 18,000.


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.
