Re: 1:500 Errors

I think this has increasingly becoming an issue for Herpa over the past year.... the quality on their 787 engines are getting worse and worse, The Chevron-toothed exhaust duct covers looks like they are in desperate need of dental care.. i haven't had one decent 787 engine from Herpa for a while now. i really hope they can fix this problem as their 787 mould is one of their finest..

Re: 1:500 Errors

Re: 1:500 Errors

Wow, you have a great eye, I would never spot that error on the RAM 737.

Re: 1:500 Errors

I'd care a sh** for the boxes to be honest if all models would be right.

I think this time Herpa is right. Simply the inscriptions are in different languages on each side, like in many other airlines, e.g. SAA (SAL):

Yeah, that is usually the case with Transaero aircraft, however that's not what he pointed out. On the box it says Aeroflot instead of Transaero. Not on the picture, but on the box.

Re: 1:500 Errors

You are right, I thought the inscriptions were the case.
Btw, now Aeroflot is the owner of Transaero, am I right?
Of course this does not exclude Herpa's error.

No. Transaero are gone. Aeroflot might take some of their planes, if they haven't already. But Aeroflot buying Transaero, that fell through.
