Hobby Master HA6501 Russian Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-29C 'Fulcrum' Fighter - "White 51", Borisoglebsk Training Center, Summer 2001 (1:72 Scale) "By powerful artillery fire, air strikes, and a wave of attacking tanks, we're supposed to swiftly crush the enemy."
- Marshal Georgi K. Zhukov

The MiG-29 "Fulcrum" ("Tochka Opori" in Russian) was designed and built to be a single-seat supersonic, all-weather, air superiority fighter representing the latest and perhaps last fighter produced by the Mikoyan Design Bureau. The primary role of the MiG-29 is to destroy air targets at ranges from 60 to 200 kilometers (30 to 110 nautical miles) at all altitudes, on all profiles, in any weather, and under all electronic countermeasures (ECM) conditions. In addition, the basic MiG-29 is capable of limited air-to-ground operations and in advanced versions, has been optimized to attack both stationary and moving targets with precision guided munitions (PGM).

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a MiG-29C Fulcrum multirole fighter known as "White 51", that was attached to the Borisoglebsk Training Center during the summer of 2001. Pre-order! Ship Date: October 2019.

Historical Account: "Borisoglebsk" - Borisoglebsk (also Borisoglebsk East) is an air base in Voronezh Oblast, Russia located 6 km east of Borisoglebsk. It is a small military airfield. From 1960 to 1971 the 478th Training Aviation Regiment, initially flying Ilyushin Il-12s and Il-14s, was stationed at the airfield. It moved in 1971 to Petrovsk in Saratov Oblast.

In October 1990 the 1080th Red Banner Aviation Centre for Retraining of Personnel named for V.P. Chkalov (1080 UATsPLS, ru:Борисоглебское высшее военное авиационное училище лётчиков им. В. П.

It was an amalgamation of the 796th Center for Preparation of Officers for Fighter and Fighter-Bomber Aviation, and the Borisoglebsk Higher Military Aviation School of Pilots.
