re: NEW Herpa releases now shipping

Very exciting news. Thank you charter for posting this. I hope to see these models available in the U.S. soon as I can't wait to obtain the KLM, BMI, and perhaps even the BA. Now where is that Air France ERJ-190???

re: NEW Herpa releases now shipping

I'm probably going to pick up at least five of the United 737's. Those will make good custom donors. I'd definitly like seeing one turned into a Continental airlines one, Copa air and with alittle bit of effort it should turn into an Alaskan airlines and Delta 737 too.

HAHA, maybe

I am VERY particular about my models now, I wish i had space and cash to get LOTS AND LOTS. I get a few random models from time to time though, just because I like them!

Could a moderator please neutralize this thread to read eg. "Herpa models now shipping" so it no longer unfairly advertises a single shop but keeps the information?

Thank you.

Thumbs up Suggestions to Herpa!

Hi my friends. Today i have written a "strong" letter to Herpa, suggesting 50 models for the next releases. I have written a personal list, what i think Herpa should release, but i tried to cover all over the World and all the flying models of our marvellous civil aviation world.

Well done, great list.

I don't mean to rain on your parade, but I can just about imagine Herpa's reply: "Thanks for your message, we value your feedback, some of the models are already planned, others may be too difficult to realize (license etc), we can't tell you which ones, look out for our next releases."

That said, writing to them is better than not writing, which is what most of us do...

PS You forgot Frontier!
