1/72 72121 Amodel Su-11 Fishpot C
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good+
Realizing the inherent shortcomings of the Sukhoi Su-9, Sukhoi begane work on and upgraded version in the late 1950s. It first flew in 1961 and earned the NATO reporting name Fishpot C. Su-11 had a more powerful radar ("Skip Spin" to NATO), a much more powerful Lyulka AL-7F-1 engine and R-98 missiles to replace the questionable K-5s. Of the pair carried, one was infa-red and the other beam riding. Production began in 1962 and about 100 aircraft total were produced. Sukhoi OKB was not satisfied with the Su-11 and considered the Su-15 Flagon to be superior. However, the Su-11 continued in service until about 1983, under the Soviet policy of more (even if obsolete) is better. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
