Re: Aero500 New releases April 2015

Great news! I will 100% be getting the ANA 777-300ER 'Inspiration Japan' as the Hogan version will be too expensive for me!

But guys. I know many of you don't like the china Eastern new livery, but I would like to have the 777-300ER in my collection.
Which one should I get? Sky500, Aero500, or wait for Herpa?! I would value your opinions on this.

I had none of them in my hands.
But I would get Aero.
In general quality better than Herpa, mould and gear better than Sky.

Herpa or Aero. Nor Sky!

Re: Aero500 New releases April 2015

Yes I am thinking Herpa Aero500 over Sky for sure at this point. I guess the real debate is between Herpa and Aero500 - particularly as Aero500 is about 10 euros more expensive.

Re: Aero500 New releases April 2015

Sky500 777 is the worst of the three.
Herpa have a nice mould but constant errors and also the loooong MLGs of their 777s.

I think the best one is Aero500, even if I dislike the too small wheelhubs they use...

Thanks for the advice, I think you are right Aero500 seems most detailed too.

Re: Aero500 New releases April 2015

Any idea which shops will have these available?

It's been a while since Aero500 were on sale at shops, and some have even deleted that brand category.

I know it's now there on ebay but at ridiculous prices!

Re: Aero500 New releases April 2015

Thinking to "always the same models, liveries and airlines" and the fact that our poor 1:500 world is
layered on mediocrity and copying, Aero500 has already produced an Air China B777-200 regular livery, the B-2068...

Re: Aero500 New releases April 2015

I think I will wait for the Herpa, instead of the Aero500. The difference is 20 Euros!!!

Also, I am concerned for the Aero 500 quality.

China Eastern: Notice the front landing gear looks bent, also the gear door is snapped. I won't pay so much money for Aero 500 if there is a risk of damages like this.

ANA: Front Landing gear looks bent

AC is around 37€ which is less than 10€ more than Herpa. Last Herpa 777 costs 29€!

Thanks, I will have a look at other stores to such as ARD to see if I can get a reasonable price. I certainly want the ANA model, but may not get the China Eastern as it is very plain livery for such a price!
