The East German Air Force operated from 1956 until the reunification of Germany in 1990. Since East Germany was the Warsaw Pact's front line country it was given special treatment by the Soviets and received aircraft and equipment with advanced technology that normally was reserved only for Soviet forces. Throughout the 1960s and 70s the MiG-21 was the primary fighter of the LSK and from 1972 until 1974 the LSK received fifty MiG-21M/MFs.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21MF Fishbed

Designed as a successor to the Soviet Union's family of early MiG jet fighters, the MiG-21 was first flown on February 14, 1955. This supersonic jet fighter was the first Soviet aircraft to successfully combine fighter and interceptor characteristics. Its delta wing design gave it the ability to climb quickly and its light loading further improved its performance, making it possible for a skilled pilot to successfully engage in dogfights with contemporary enemy fighters. Today, more than 50 years after its introduction, the MiG-21 still serves the air forces of many nations and has become the most-produced supersonic jet in history.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale MiG-21 is constructed in diecast metal with only the smallest amount of plastic used. The configurable cockpit canopy provides a clear view of the interior and pilot figure and the central air brake is deployable. A G-P9 cannon pod with hand-painted 23mm twin-barrel 23mm can be seen below the cockpit. The wing is crafted of solid metal, and structural details can be seen inside the wheel wells and inboard gear doors. Each wingtip has an integrated fence and air date sensors. Ordnance includes removable fuel tanks and K-13A air-to-air missiles.
