Default 1:72 scale Su-35, MiG-25, MiG-31

I was wondering if there are any diecast Su-35's, MiG-25's, MiG-31's. Anyone have any idea?

I think Gaincorp do a SU-35 as I've seen pics of it. Can't recall if it's an old release. Red Falcon might consider doing a MiG-25 but they've probably canceled it, like they did with the MiG-23.

If you're looking for a best one - forget about it. No one company does not making a good one or even dont try.
Maybe, all hopes for the Red Falcon but they're so strange at this moment...

I think Red Falcon is gone, a couple weeks ago, one of the last remaining MiG-23 prototypes was on eBay.

I think Flying Mule still have a few Gaincorp Su-27's and I did manage to see a Gaincorp Su-35 but I would assume it's an old release cause it's really hard to find on the net. As far as Red Falcon is concerned, strange they canceled their MiG-23 diecast model. It seemed like a very promising one and it certainly got my attention for a potential purchase. Maybe another manufacturer will consider a diecast model MiG-23/25/31 and Su-35 as possible future releases??

Oh and I forgot to mention, Flying Mule has a good selection of MiG-15's, MiG-21's and MiG-29's AND they have 1 MiG-17.

Was Red Falcon associated with Falcon Models? I just bought the F9F and T-33 from the Mule, so I know Falcon at least is still around. Too bad if RF failed, didn't even get off the ground. Probably an investment issue or some financial problem. Damn, I really was looking forward to a series of Soviet flyers...

Yea Gaincorp and World Aircraft Collection are the same thing. I am curious though about the re-release Su-47...did they make any changes? I know in the past the exported version with the clear box window didn't have a stand, but the Asia-release did. So I'm wondering will they give us a stand.

This isn't a Sea Flanker so the wings don't fold, but it has lots of moving control surfaces, and the livery is unique. The markings on the Su-35 are actually a mix of tampo printed and decals. The major markings, such as the star insignias, aircraft number etc. are all tampo printed but the smaller markings like placards and warning signs etc. are decals.

Su-33 has folding wings

Great collection you got there...
Too bad the markings are not all tampo printing...decals seem to deteriorate if not properly sealed/protected.

It's a shame Red Falcon didn't follow through, I'm sure they would of made a killing with there models, it even got non soviet collectors excited lol

As for soviet aircraft, Gaincorp is 2nd to none, Hobby Master does pretty neat MiG-15 and MiG-21 but no one does a decent MiG-29, who ever does them, they all seem toy like.

I have 2 SU-27 and 1 SU-30 but yet to get a SU-34, I think hens teeth would be easier to find

The Altaya subscription series has many "unusual subject" 1:72 scale jets, which are part metal and part plastic. I have a number of these and, though they vary in quality, can give a strong recommendation to their Mig-31. One of these is available via Texas based eBay seller, cristiantg, and is up for bids right now ( Item No. 310368621700 ). He can also order other Altaya models, like the Kfir or Draken, for anyone who is interested. Below is a picture of my Mig-31, which has a light wash on it to highlight the panel lines:
