Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23ML (NATO code name: Flogger-K) Red 340, JG-9 "Heinrich Rau", East German Air Force, (GDR), 1990

1:72 Scale.  Length: 9".  Wingspan (spread): 7.6"

Limited production of approximately 750 models worldwide

MiG-23ML c/n0390324249 was delivered to the East German Air Force Jagfliegergeschwader 9 'Heinrich Rau', Peenemunde Air Base with serial Red 610. With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990 this aircraft and others were absorbed into the unified German Air Force and recoded as 20+37. Not long after this, the aircraft was placed into storage and in August 1993 it was sent to Fassberg AB Technical School to be used as a ground trainer. The MiG-23s Camo scheme is Brown/Dark Brown/Olive Green/Medium Green on top and blue on the underside.

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.
