You got no chance, HM can't do any more Dassault planes because of the license fee.

HM can do Dassault planes if they pay the license fee. If the market is there and the customers are willing to swallow the license fee, they can do them. Given the absolute ****e "Premium X" models that were sold with the dassault license and the high prices that punters were willing to pay for them, I suggest HM just man up, negotiate hard, pay the damn license fee, and make the models.

Or, second choice, just make the models and take a 'come get me' approach to licensing as others (altaya, etc) have done for ages.

mig29 looks ok. some places like the front of the left wing wing root look like the pieces has been worn down under a running river for a few years (detail is not crisp) but maybe this is a pre-pro issue.

Yes, mold really looks quite good, with no gaps. From some reason HM decided to switch to green camo from the pre-pro blueish grey, but the green should still be tweaked.


I´ve noticed only few simplifications:

- front pitot tube is out of shape at the roots (missing vortex generators):







- On the canopy there is missing rosy framing and typical rivetting in the front:




- Outboard flaps are longer than wings (protrude behind wings outline:



- Outboard flaps are longer than wings and:
Twin tails should be angled out more:

... also FLG looks real toyish for HM standards.


Anyway I think most collectors will like the mold.


... and also dreaming about HM Rafale!

They could, but William has made it clear that they won't. Having been bitten by the license increase, he's shied away from ever making any more of their planes, save the latest Mirage for which the distributor who requested it paid the license. As for taking a chance on not paying a la Altaya, I don't thiink any of the major manufacturers dare do that- they've too much to lose if they get caught.
