Re: Herpa Wings News 05-06 2017

Herpa seriously what is going on, no new mould for the toy fair?

500302-001 B737-300 America West Airlines "25 Years Wings"
530224 Fokker 100 Iran Air

Interesting releases but still no new mould???

Scenix is rubbish, still the old ground plates.

United 767-200 Saul Bass is interesting.

Veery intersting release. I think, that this is the next good Batch! Sadly no new mould (737Max/ A320Neo etc.) Some models are definitely loong awaited in my opinion. Finally they released the American 757 in the nice mould. (Leo here's your American, just the Delta is missing ) The Norwegian 787-9 and the KLM 737. Instead of the Fokker 100 I would've preferred the A321WL. But at least they've done a nice Job.

I think we may still see an all-white MAX or NEO sample at the fair.

Re: Herpa Wings News 05-06 2017

What a sad list! Some interesting models like KLM B737-700WL, Alitalia B777-200 new livery and Iran Air Fokker 100; then some (maybe, i hope) nice models like TUI Belgium B787-8 and the two B787-9 (Air France and Norwegian), something that could be beautiful like the Asiana A350. But, i repeat, what a sad list...and i should not write mails to Herpa!

Re: Herpa Wings News 05-06 2017

wowowowowowowowoowowowowowowowo
Interesting release in my opinion! Very unexpected birds! And my beloved American B757-200
Sad to see no ATR models or new moulds, but that's ok...

500302-001 B737-300 America West Airlines "25 Years Wings"
Sooooo Herpa really brought back the fat duck 737 Classic mould? lolwut
Is this a re-release of an early model, just like they told before? I don't even know what model is this.
511575-001 B747-400 JASDF
Another re-release from the past. Not the best pick IMHO, Hogan and F-Toys have just released this same model too. And this will be the worst looking one, because of NGII mould.
514965-003 A330-300 Lufthansa "Shark Skin"
hmmm whatever...
527477-001 Concorde BA Negus Colors
Another re-release from way back! Nice one, but I wonder if there's a demand for a re-release...
529136-001 B777-300ER Swiss
Ok, nice, nothing for me.
529266-001 E-4B USAF
...
529983 A350-900 Asiana
Is the real aircraft even painted already? Anyway, won't be getting this.
530118 B777-200 Alitalia (new colors)
Nice release. See, Edoardo? Herpa didn't forget
Nothing for me, I guess.
530125 B757-200 American Airlines


530132 B777-200 Austrian "Servus Hong Kong"
Nice release! Nothing for me anyway.
530149 B737-800 China Southern
Nice to see a Chinese narrowbody! 1:400 have lots of them and 1:500 doesn't. Anyway, "no" for me.
530156 A330-300 Qantas (2016 colors)
Qantas, how surprising! Just kidding, nice release, knowing that they just unveiled the new titles. But I won't get this one either.
530163 B787-8 TUI Belgium (Jetairfly)
Nice one! Might get this, I don't know. It's suitable for my airport but only tme will tell. One thing is for sure: i'll get a TUI sooner or later.
530170 B787-9 Norwegian
Nice one for me! But also a maybe... Might get at some point but definitely low priority.
530187 B767-200 United Airlines "Rainbow / Saul Bass"
Wooonderful release for the Classics lovers! Saul Bass livery is great and a 767-200 is always welcome!
530194 Ju-52 JU-Air "IWC"
Good to see a Ju-52 coming back. But I would prefer other releases.
530200 B737-700 KLM
New livery, I suppose? Anyway, good for Thom and other people who collect Euro narrowbodies.
530217 B787-9 Air France
Good one, very predictable. Nothing for me.
530224 Fokker 100 Iran Air
Unexpected one! Interesting, too bad the mould is so poor...
Won't get this one.
530248 B737-200 Lufthansa
I thought this one was already released... anyway, no.

Scenic:
530255 Set 1: Passenger Terminal Scenic Ground Plates
530262 Set 2: Cargo Area Scenic Ground Plates
530279 Set 3: Maintenance Area Scenic Ground Plates
530286 North Pier Munich Airport
530293 Central Plaza Munich Airport
530309 Midsections Munich Airport
530316 South Pier Munich Airport

BA Concorde has the 'British' titles instead of 'British Airlines' previously released.
KLM 737 is new livery.

I agree with you, my friend...only the SWISS B77W for me, but only maybe!!!! I don't think you should write emails to Herpa, Ale Maybe, they're preparing us for a very interesting 07-08/2017 list, my friend Only Herpa knows...

Re: Herpa Wings News 05-06 2017

Typical...Herpa ends up doing a United 767-200 in Bass colors but not Gemini Jets! I always seem to miss the mark between scales.

Asiana seems interesting...maybe.

Re: Herpa Wings News 05-06 2017

It's a very nice batch for me...my wallet will hurt!
American Airlines B757-200 is definitely long overdue, while the United Saul Bass B767-200 is a very nice surprise! Iran Air Fokker 100 and American West B737-300 are also surprising releases which excite me. May also get the Austrian Airlines B777-200ER "Servus Hong Kong" and China Southern B737-800.

Is this a re-release of an early model, just like they told before? I don't even know what model is this.
It will be an NG version of this: Herpa 1:500 America West Airlines B 737-33A - Wings900 ID# 666
