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

PS You forgot Frontier!
Thanks my friend. What you have written probably will be the real HERPA answer.
About Frontier i have not added this airline to the list because,probably, Herpa will tell me: "about some airlines we have licence problems".

Re: Suggestions to Herpa!

Why don't we, atleast al of the members that have posted here, write to Herpa with just 10 ( or 15) models that we like the most. I'm thinking that it's more succesfull if 5 guys write to Herpa with the same models than when 2 guys write to Herpa with many and different models?

Hope to hear your ideas also ;-)

Re: Suggestions to Herpa!

So many models on your list that I want. So go ahead, sometime they will listen...
Even as I am not so much for non-European narrow bodies(mostly because they don't fly to Sweden...) except Philippine airliners.

And don't forget a City Airline Md-82 and a BlueOne Md-90 or B717.
And Charter, how can you miss, a Hooters Air B737...

We have already done something like this, voting for the "most wanted model" of each mould. I think we will can repeat the vote in the future.

I talk with Miss Kohler and Mr. Borgmann.

Thanks for the tip, Alle. I might just send them a list of my "most wanted" Russian/CIS models.

Re: Suggestions to Herpa!

I wrote a letter to Mr Borgmann about Swiss Int airlines and asked about the following models,
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

Re: Suggestions to Herpa!

I just sent Herpa Wings Team an e-mail too, and i might have gone over the 10 model limit, but i hope to get a kind response.

Most(all...) of the planes i asked for were Tu-154s. One of my favorite planes and one of Herpas best moulds.

Re: Suggestions to Herpa!

I asked about these:














I hope that either one of these gets produced!
