Re: Sky500 breaking news.

Thread merged with the sticky Sky500 thread.
Once again three great, beautiful models! Also if everything can be improved, i think that we must be happy that an Herpa competitor exists and is realizing such a beautiful models.

Re: Sky500 breaking news.

Herpa will not produce an ANZ 77W in Hobbit colors. They did not obtain a license from Warner. The Sky500 prints don't look great...

Don't expect any changes between these photos and the production models. They are the production models; I've never seen any changes and can there be any with a usual timespan of 10 days between announcement and availability in Europe.

Re: Sky500 breaking news.

If those doors/windows on the A330s were any higher, they'd be skylights!!

Re: Sky500 breaking news.

May get the Air New Zealand The Hobbit...those two A330 are not bad but I'm not a lot interested in them.
This China Southern special livery already looks quite nice, compared to the bloody hell "People.cyan" & "Crying China" realised by Sky500 in the last few batches. I don't particularly want a standard livery China Southern A330-200, as Herpa already made a really nice one years ago. We do need standard liveried A330-200 for Air China & China Eastern though!

Re: Sky500 breaking news.

The three models are available. I can't wait for the ANZ B777-300ER and the Cebu Pacific A330!

Re: Sky500 breaking news.

I wonder if Sky500 has the licenses to produce some "charter" widebodies as Monarch A330-200, Thomas Cook and Thomas Cook Scandinavia A330-200, Corsair A330-200, Livingston A330-200 and so on.

Re: Sky500 breaking news.

You are trying to say to me that Sky500 got the license for the Hobbit instead of Herpa? Phhh...

They have to take their customers (Sky500 retailers) locations into consideration when releasing a model. Retailers in Europe sell more models of European airlines as you may expect. By releasing a model of an airline such as Monarch, they will mainly be targeting European customers only - and I don't know if they've got enough to shift the stock.

I think we should come up with some justified suggestions for SKY - as I would be happy to suggest one or two within reason (to avoid wasting their time).

In my opinion, a major reason that they have produced Virgin Atlantic models is because they operate flights to Hong Kong, Shanghai & Tokyo. It's the same story with Turkish Airlines who operate to many destinations all over Asia. And South African Airways too who fly to Hong Kong and Beijing. Finally there is Finnair who are a big player in China, Hong Kong and the rest of Asia. There seems to be a very clear pattern.
