I can’t understand why this long waited model would be released in an already released scheme... what a shame

schemes? because all existing mig29s are poor, and for HM to avoid popular schemes just because they were once available in a long gone inferior mould makes no sense.

also: ukraine digital scheme with trident/tryzub, please

Yes! my first choice. Then maybe someday a Latin American MiG 29, whether its the Cuban or Peruvian doesn't matter as long as I have one example in my collection.

HM intends to correct the orientation of the pitot probe.

really with the Mig29 and Su27, HM really make all previous diecast of those types obsolete. They can do the same with Eurofighter Typhoon quite easily as well. Still amazed HM hasn't gone after that one.

Are you able to explain why Witty ergo also JCW and Herpa Fulcrums are so inferior? I only bother to dare ask because for the past 15 yrs, I've only ever heard a negative remark in regards to their gears being too fiddly to install. It's also way more superior to Corgi's Fulcrum in just about every way possible.

And aside from Herpa's price and both having the same fiddly gears as Witty, the response to JCW/Herpa Fulcrums has been rather positive. I'd go as far as saying that mould is one of their best sellers.

So far HMs looks good but it has the typical HM seam line near the nose and deep panel lines, something Witty was always commended for not doing. HM gears also look to be just as fiddly, the main gears are not in one piece.

Was it their schemes? Again a lot of people praised Witty's schemes, both in colour and application. Something JCW has dreadfully failed to achieve.

Maybe there's a technical fault to the mould I'm not seeing, can't say I've ever dug too deep into it's accuracy given I only bought two and only because they went bust, I was always waiting for HMs version which I suggested many many maaaaany years ago and gotten a lukewarm response to (as well as Flankers and Frogfoots )

I'm also looking forward to some Ukr Fulcrums, there's at least 3-4 schemes I would get, including the digital.

I reckon Dave put it nicely in one of his threads, that Witty never really got the praise it probably deserved.

it had some advantages, but the above image shows how toylike it was in places and how it belongs to a prior generation of diecast.

it seems that HM is making the 9.13 Fulcrum, different from WT/JC Fulcrums

Fair point but then does the same apply to the Dragon P-51 ?

Yep, the couple degree declination is something I wish Witty/JCW's would have addressed on their mould. Not enough of a bother to replace my old MiG-29's with any possible re releases from HM though.That said, I am thrilled and super anxious to see what operational schemes they release. Hope once they get the first one out of the way, they can put one out at least every other month.
