From Wikipedia:

The Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut is an experimental supersonic jet fighter developed by Sukhoi Aviation Corporation. A distinguishing feature of the aircraft is its forward-swept wing. The sole aircraft produced is an advanced technology demonstrator prototype and manufacture of a planned second flying prototype is under question due to recent MiG developments of 5th generation Jet fighters.

Just like with the Spitfire, the Su-47 does not feature rotating wheels. The nose cone is blunt (for child safety I guess). Fans of accuracy might notice that this jet feature: “Interestingly, the Su-47 has two tailbooms of unequal length outboard of the exhaust nozzles. The shorter boom, on the left-hand side, houses rear-facing radar, while the longer boom houses a brake parachute.” – Wikipedia. This unequal tailbooms is missing from this model.
