Sukhoi Su-9/11 "Fishpot"
Russian interceptor, scale 1/48.
About this creation
Armament : 4 K-5MS (AA-1 'Alkali') air-to-air missiles
Maximum speed: Mach 2.0, 2,230 km/h (1,385 mph) @ 12,000m(39,370ft) for one minute
Range: 1,350km (838 miles)
Service ceiling: 20,000 m (65,620 ft)
Rate of climb: 136.7 m/s (27,000 ft/min)

The high performance of the Su-9 encouraged the Sukhoi OKB to attempt world record flights. The modified Su-9 prototype, T-43-1, piloted by Vladimir Sergeievitch Ilyushin, was assigned and the absolute world record altitude was attained at 28,852 m (94,658 ft), in a zoom climb, on 14 July 1959. On 7 September 1962, the T-43-1, again piloted by Ilyushin, attained 21,170 m (69,455 ft) in sustained level flight over a 15 km/25 km (9.3/15.5 mile) course. On 25 September 1962, A.A. Koznov flew the T-43-1 at an average speed of 2,337 km/h (1,451.5 mph) in level flight over a 500 km (310.5 mile) closed circuit.

It was reported (falsely) by russian propaganda that a Su-9 was briefly involved in the interception of Francis Gary Powers' U-2 on Soviet territory over Yekaterinberg on 1 May 1960. A newly manufactured Su-9 in a transit flight found itself near Powers' U-2. The Su-9 was not armed, nevertheless ramming was attempted. The Su-9 missed the U-2, primarily due to large difference in the speed of the two planes, and had to disengage immediately due to the lack of fuel...

An Su-9? Very unique, and Very cool! (This is the first fishpot I have found.) Have instructions? I need this kind of thing for my air force, if you don't mind helping. :)

This is a beautiful model. I love how you worked with the logic of lego to create an elegant and simple design.

Classic Russian aircraft design, well done. Too bad LEGO doesn't manufacture those green's exactly.

Really like these early Cold-War Russian fighters. Great how you squeezed in the retractable landing gear on so small a model. Nice pitot probe, too!

Stunning! Absolutely identifiable as the Fishpot. You nailed the geometry. Admittedly, this aircraft has a basic shape, but still, you really finessed the bricks with great skill. I could recognize your Fishpot if it was shown with no name, and in silhouette. Attack!
