A very weak batch for me, but i'm happy because there are many surprises!
None of these models fit in my collection focus, so I won't get any of these.
But I'm happy
TWO 757-200 releases, one with winglets!
It seems that the NG1 757 mould is back, hopefully! This is simply wonderful, Herpa really needs to release a Delta and American NC 757-200
ATR 72 new mould????
I really can't wait to see this! Finallyyyyyyyyy!
Another mould coming back! The 767-200 mould! If I remember correctely, the last release was the Aerosur Sharko... would be interesting to see a new 762 mould based on the 763 mould, but I also like the NG1 mould so i'm happy anyway.
Like I always do (And I like to do this hahahah), i'll give my opinion about each model:
529990 B737-800 Aeroflot
Nice release. A great mould and a great livery. Good job Herpa
530002 TU-134B-3 Air Koryo
Air Koryo seems to be getting some attention lately... maybe we'll see a Tu-204 later! Anyway, interesting release.
530088 Airbus A318 - Avianca
This is the most nonsense release of this batch, IMHO. Here in Brazil, Avianca's A318s are being retired. I don't know about the Colombian Avianca, but I suppose they also are, that's why there's none in the new livery. WHY THE A318, HERPA? Why not the A319 or A320 in new livery? Why choose a model with old livery, which is being retired? I need Avianca at my model airport, but this is a wasted chance!
530026 B747-8I Lufthansa "Siegerflieger Olympia Rio 2016"
530033 B747-8I Lufthansa "Siegerflieger Paralympic Rio 2016"
Why two in the same batch? Taking a slot from another model... the only difference is a small sticker and Herpa counts this as a release, it should count as a re-release. Or maybe release both as a set, and not two nearly identical models in a single batch. Dislike!
530095 AN-124 Russian Air Force
It's already the third or fourth An-124 for Russian AF, right? But I guess there aren't many other options left so... whatever
530071 TU-154M Belavia
Nice release, Tu-154s are welcome! Even if the nose section of the mould isn't that nice.
529976 B757-200F DHL "Eliska“s Return to Afrika"
A very interesting release! This can also count as a re-release of the old DHL 757. Hopefully it will be in NG1 mould and not the ugly Netmodels mould.
530019 B757-200 OpenSkies
Great release! This one will be a beautiful model
529969 A400M Royal Air Force
Nice release for the fans of military birds. Many folks here are from the UK, so they'll probably enjoy this
530064 ATR-72-600 TAP Express
Veeeery nice! I want to see the new mould ASAP
530057 B767-200 UTair
Lovely! The B767-200 is back!
Great release from an important Russian airline!
530040 B787-8 Uzbekistan Airways
Great one, Uzbekistan livery is beautiful and very colorful!
It seems that this batch was great for Russian aviation lovers
About the Re-releases: A320 Vueling and Hawaiian A330 are great ones!
Vueling because since it's an important low-cost airline from Europe, many collectors will have the chance to have TWO Vueling A320 models with different registrations for their model airports... and the Hawaiian is great because the original release is now very hard to find!
