Re: Model of the year 2016.

My number 1 choice will definitely be the KLM 'Orange Pride' B777-300ER. It is such a beautiful livery close to perfectly realised by Herpa, definitely the best model of 2016 in my opinion.








Other models that deserve to be mentioned:

Vueling A320
Luxair B737-800
TUIfly Haribo Tropifrutti 737
Air New Zealand B777-300ER 'All Blacks'
TUI 787 (despite being 8 months too late :O)
Cathay Pacific A350-900 (Hogan)
Singapore Airlines A350-900

Let's hope all manufacturers can keep up the quality of (some of) their models and let's hope for many nice releases next year.

What is your choice Ale?

Re: Model of the year 2016.

Well Ale, out of the list you've mentioned, the KLM Orange Pride has to be the favourite for the model of the year, surely, my friend. Whether she will win the title or not, has to be seen from the votes. However, if your list is put up for vote, I'd vote for the KLM.

Re: Model of the year 2016.

I switched to be an more 1:200 collector, so i didn´t bought much 1:500, but in my opinion, the Air Berlin A320 "Flying home for Christmas" went well..

If you look at the painting, it´s very well done, if you look at the "normal" standart, Herpa has.

I am still thinking my friend, you can post your list and choose the model you prefer for the year 2016.

Re: Model of the year 2016.

The BA 744 was released only this year, while announced last year. For me SHE is the model of 2016
