Re: 1:500 Errors

We should make a difference between errors which affect the whole batch and those which don't. Those which don't can be replaced by another model.

I've got contacts at both Sky500 and Aero500. However I've got the impression they won't bother about it. And Mr Klein may be looking here once in a while.

The position of the front door seems ok, by comparing the distance between it and the cockpit windows and first pax window, what makes me afraid is actually the position of the front gear whole assembly, it's too far behind!!! That's remember me the 737 classics had the same problem, which was corrected at least on the 737-400 and -500.

Re: 1:500 Errors

Can I also point out that all Embraer cockpit windows are wrong? (Except Alitalia / LOT / Cirrus etc. releases)

Actually the crown was not misplaced, Royal Jordanian modified the position of the crown on its Embraer fleet few years back.

Here are two pictures of the same plane, the first one was 8 years ago:



and the second one is recent



Thank god Herpa got that right, but what bothered me about this model is that the grey color was supposed to be a bit darker to highlight more the crown and the writings in gold, especially when its compared with the previous models of Royal Jordanian that were released by Herpa.

Also the gold and red lines are not supposed to go downwards on the nose section which is making the nose looks a bit weird for me.

So overall the model is not perfect but I can say that I am quite happy with it, especially that its the only narrow body model that I have for Royal Jordanian, and who knows when Herpa will ever think of doing another one like the A319, A320, A321, or even the E-175.

That there is no wrong position of the starboard cockpit door, but a general problem of herpas Embraer E-Jet family with the position of the front gear has been clarified in several threads before.

But what is this thread about, printing and assembling errors or general design and development flaws?

Re: 1:500 Errors

Cockpit windows are way too high. The whole front looks ridiculous.

The worst cockpit/nose section misprint after the Tu 214 Transaero! Another monster, simply unacceptable! What a disaster after a delay of more than a year!

You figure out what's wrong. No, it's not the name missing..

Nthe logo on the L side is wrong. It should be "KLM Royal Dutch Airlines" instead of "Royal Dutch Airlines KLM"
