Hey there
I am writing to you today to ask about future releases in 1:500 scale. I am huge herpa fan and have been collecting since 2001.

I am a regular customer in Switzerland and the UK as I have family in both countries.
I am happy with the Swiss fleet at present but would like to see more of it in 1:500, I was wondering whether or not we may see any of these models in the near future:

*ALL SWISS AIRLINES UNLESS STATED*

A319
A321 - Updated with star alliance logo
A330-200 - Star Alliance Livery
BAe146-300 Star Alliance Livery
BAe146-300 Shopping at Flughafen Zurich
Saab 2000


Darwin Airways Saab 2000
Crossair Saab 2000 - newest livery
Helvetic Airways Fokker 100

VLM Fokker 50
Cityjet BAe146

and this was the reply
Hi Eddi,

Thanks a lot for your interest in Herpa Wings. As we have very good contacts to Swiss, we are going to release models of that airline again and again. We have also already asked for the permission to release models of the BAe146-300 with the livery “Shopping at Flughafen Zurich”, but we neither get it from the airline nor from the airport so far. As we do not have the mould of the Saab 2000 in the 1/500 scale, we have also no concrete plans to release models of that aircraft at the moment. But we are sure that we will release some further models in the future according to your interests anyway. We hope you will enjoy them.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards
I hope to hear back form you soon
Good letter, nice requests and nice answer from Herpa.

Great fleet my friend: i really hope Herpa will release all these models!!!

Re: Suggestions to Herpa!

Yer I just love Swiss and didn't want to ask about the next collection so quickly as 11/12 hasn't been out for to long.

I am very excited about the near future and 1:500 releases as I think This year has been one of the best in 1:500 making for a long time.

I also don't want to get my hopes up on certain models being created etc, as it'll make me quite sad if we see more models we've seen by other model companies or poorer quality or releases!

Re: Suggestions to Herpa!

One more model i'd like to see is of a plane that never flew. Atleast not in this livery. Or so i think.

Re: Suggestions to Herpa!

This is a very nice list - Thanks Charter and everyone that worked on that. I believe Herpa would like to do a lot, but as the e-Mail response about the Swiss models shows us - it´s not always in Herpa´s hand. If the airline/licensee does not approve or respond there is nothing Herpa can do. Let´s not forget, Herpa is the only manufacturer in 1/500 that has official licenses.

I believe they would like to do an Easyjet but it is said that their licensing fees are horrible high.

Totally, I want to see an Easyjet, but I think IF one was ever done in 1:500, they would use a Swiss Reg one like they did in 1:400 a few years ago!

I didn't know that about 1:500, is that why companies like sky500 only release like 500 models of one type each time?

Re: Suggestions to Herpa!

Well, I'm gonna wish for something out of the box, no pun intended...I wish for more cardboard airport sets, but this time not only Munich (and hopefully something outside of Germany).

Re: Suggestions to Herpa!

Don't forget the Turkish Airlines Boeing 777-300ER with new livery, or optionally Airbus A330 with new livery.

Speaking of airplanes (and not just dioramas), I would love to se more A300s!
