1:72 scale diecast
VFA-81 "Sunliners," Lt. Cdr. Mark Fox, Desert Storm, 1991
Replicating the Hornet flown by Lt. Cdr. Mark Fox (who, as a Vice Admiral, currently serves as Commander, U.S. 5th Fleet and U.S. Naval Forces Central Command) when he shot down a MiG-21 with an AIM-9M missile on January 17, 1991, during Operation Desert Storm (it was the first of two U.S. Navy kills in the operation), this newly tooled, 1/72 scale, die cast Hobby Master model belongs in every collection!
You get engraved panel lines, a detailed cockpit with an opening canopy and a removable pilot figure, removable wing- and fuselage-mounted ordnance and fuel tanks, realistic engine air intakes and exhaust nozzles, optional-position landing gear, a tail hook, and authentic VFA-81 "Sunliners" markings from the USS Saratoga (CV-60). Measures approximately 9¼" long with a 6¼" wingspan and includes a display stand.
Did You Know? Fox led the opening "Shock and Awe" strike of Operation Iraqi Freedom on March 21, 2003.
