MiG-23ML 4644 was delivered to the Czech Air Force in November 1982 assigned to the 1 SLP (1st Fighter Air Regiment). In late 1994 the aircraft received a special Tiger paint scheme and in 1995 was transferred to the 41st SLT (41st Fighter Squadron). By 1998 it was the last Czech Air Force MiG23ML and was withdrawn from active service but continued to be flown until 2000 for training purposes. MiG-23ML 4644 participated in the annual Czech International Air Fest (CIAF) held at Hradec, Kralove in 1999. It was moved and preserved at Caslav AB, Czech Republic.

In the 1960s the Soviet military required a replacement for the MiG-21 that could compete with the USN F-14 Tomcat. It had to be very fast, rapid acceleration, carry a larger payload, capable of a high service ceiling, long range and beyond visual range intercept capabilities. The project was given to the Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau that produced the Model 23-11 that first flew on June 10, 1967. Production began in 1969 and eventually completed over 5,000 swing-wing MiG-23s. A ground-attack variant was also produced, the MiG-27.

Hobby Master is a manufacturer of high quality, pre-built, diecast models. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using specifications of the original aircraft or vehicle. They are made with die-cast metal and some plastic components.
