After the take-over of Netherlines, their Saab 340 was included into the fleet of the regional subsidiary Cityhopper. Theo original features the name “Neurenberg” – after the Franconian city Nuremberg.
| || Manufacturer:
Part Number: 553971
| || Mould and Assembly: overall an accurate 340 fuselage mold here. however i could use more point in the nose section. the cockpit windows are incorrect but that will be addressed later in my review. perhaps the front gear door can be shifted rear or shortened a little. i think it starts just a hair too forward. the engine fan blades are definitely wrong. how do i explain this? im not sure what the technical terms are but blades should be twisted, not all flat, forward facing like it is here. the cone of the prop should be sharper too. im not going to complain on of the seamline in the wingbox because i think its appropriately placed with very little hole in the seam.|
Livery: livery is spot on. i dont have much to say here. the blue seems correct, although im working off of old photographs with non realistic color. herpa photos show darker blue, the actual model is of a lighter blue. the reg on the tail could be printed thinner and i think it comes too close to the fuselage, to the point of touching it which isnt right.
Details: i could use more printed details especially on the engines. how about a pitot tube. the black stripe on the tail cold be thinner too. where is the antenna herpa? what is up with the inconsistency between models that have and dont have. overall id like to see more printed details. cockpit window is also shaped wrong.
