Herpa interesting answers

Hi friends, i send a letter to Herpa with some questions and yesterday i received the answers. I think this thread is not redundant, i write what i asked:
- what about the moulds improving;
- what about new liveries and new airlines (May/June releases with four German
airlines!);
- what about B767-200 and A300 models;
- what about A330-200/300 models;
- what about italian new airlines.
The answers are:
-"(...) we understand the critique we have received about the new A320 family. We are reviewing what can be done to improve on this";
-"(...) the May/June releases were an exception, having four German 1:500 new models. These are combined with orders from the operator, so we had to put priority on these models(...) We are planning new Alitalia models(...) Neos is planned for later in the year(..).the same for new other italian airlines";
-"(...)there will be more A330-200/300 models(...);
-"(...)more B767 models coming in the second half of the year, with airlines never done before(...);
-(...)there will be more TUI airlines of other countries(...).
I think there are some very interesting answers. What do you think?

Airlines never done before + B767 winglet + Neos + TUI airlines of other countries (Italy) =



We will see a Neos B767WL from Herpa later this year?

I doubt all criteria are to be connected by "AND". And they didn't say "only of airlines never done before". B767WL of airlines never done at all before could also be



Airlines that have been made by Herpa before, but no 763:



One could argue that these also fall into the above category, as they haven't been made as a B763 in the current livery:

Re: Herpa interesting answers

Good info-thanks for sharing

Its good to see Herpa responding.

If anyone else is in touch-ask them why they hate the RAF

Anyone else completely underwhelmed by the TUI brand?

Neos is not a TUI brand (it was). Perhaps new TUI airlines means Thomson and Jetairfly B737 or Corsair A330-200, but also it could be that Jet4you B737 (club model) was chosen.
I forgot: there are no plans for Air One fleet and no response for A300 missing models. Then i asked about Pulkovo Tu-154 (excuse me but it is an highlight for me!) and the answer was: "(...)currently we have the Pulkovo Il-86 still in stock;we made future plans and we may produce more Pulkovo models if the stock is sold out (...)"
I am happy for the answers, but i am especially happy because Herpa demonstrates to accept the criticism and some customers indications.

Re: Herpa interesting answers

Personally, i think herpa are just bluffing! We already have seen enough TUI airlines, what about more airlines, and yeah I think a 767 with winglets would be a basic start!

Then try to add interesting airlines such as ABSA Cargo.
They still have made no Aer Lingus NG models.
Air Malta? This seems to have been neglected.
Air One
Meridiana.
All Herpa makes are the same airlines, TUI, Lufthansa, Air France, Qantas, with a few surprises too, but nothing interesting!!

Is there an ABSA Cargo B767-300 in 1:500 scale. Otherwise i agree with you, except for TUI Group airlines because we could have other countries representation in our collection (Jetairfly = Belgium; TUI Nordic= Scandinavia; Jet4you= Morocco; Thomson = UK )

Maybe you mean ABSA 767-300 (by Netmodels) ! It's in old livery. I would like one in new livery too... and with those sexy winglets.
