That is true Leo and really the only downside on this model

The difference is pretty much visible in both comparison shots between BG DC10 of Herpa and LH DC10 of Aero500.

I will send them both pics, small steps ahead possibly and if enough people do it maybe they will some day Change things....

Re: Speedbird001 - My collection

Compliments for your 1000th model, well done my friend!
The Biman Bangladesh DC-10 is a masterpiece, congrats to Herpa for this release, a beautiful model. Biman DC-10 has always been a myth, maybe for the livery, maybe because the airline used this "classic" widebody until two years ago (the last flight at the end of February 2014!), for sure because the DC-10 has been one of the most beautiful and elegant airplanes ever produced.
What to say about the Qatar B747-8i? Just look at this:


, please look at this beauty. are you agree this is one of most beautiful airplanes flying?
One again Herpa had to decide between two choices, and once again (in my opinion, of course), the manufacturer decided for the worst! How many times since i started to collect (year 1996) i witnessed these Herpa (wrong) choices! I would have preferred the Qatar B747-8i VIP in the regular Qatar livery, the model Herpa produced is nice but for me it is a lost occasion to produce a masterpiece!

Re: Speedbird001 - My collection

And another new joiner....and another classic again. I couldnt resist to add it to my collection for a peanut Price

Wasn't this a bloody cool livery ? Sad they are gone, I still remember them flying to my hometown with 747-100/200 and Nortrhwest Orient titles still....

Fully agree, Starjets was pretty nice.

No Ale, actually not...simple reason....I didnt like the Airline/livery nor does it fly to LHR, so not interesting for me.

Re: Speedbird001 - My collection

And another airliner joined again (see Herpa Wings Club models section).

Hope Herpa will do some more A300's....still lots of potential I think.

You mean G-BNLA, my friend? It is one beautiful model and since you love SpeedBirds, it has to land in your fleet...

I completely agree with you, my friend...she has been on my 1:500 wishlist since I saw her pic on jetphotos a few months ago...C'mon Herpa, please make this!!! How could Herpa chose that instead of this beauty, Ale??? What say, friends???

Re: Speedbird001 - My collection

I might be the only one who prefer the livery of the one Herpa released instead of the Qatar livery...

Re: Speedbird001 - My collection

Hi Guys, hope you all had a nice Christmas time and happy 2017.

My wife got me some nice models for Christmas when she was on Business trip in Nuremberg

French Air Force A340
Qantas Mendoowoorrji 737-800
TAP A321
Philippines A340 70th anniversary

Will post them once I make another new update....it will take me ages, I havent been ready with logging now since 2 years and still around 100 or so odd boxes fly around in the room.
Basically shouldnt buy something new before not everything is logged...

Re: Speedbird001 - My collection

FINALLY !!!! She is mine, thanks to Robert (L-188 wings member), I finally found after years of searching this Beauty.

I have seen it so many times when I was a Boy at my hometown Airport and it is so essential for LHR unless we see a KLM A310 or 733.

Very happy. Also got a huge number of nice Aero500 DC10's....
