I hope Herpa are viewing this. What a shambolic excuse for a model company they are nowadays.

It looks like a blind mole
Seriously, email Herpa about this. They might send in a new model for you!

Re: 1:500 Errors

Looks like the latest "Flying home for Christmas" Air Berlin A320 shows the tongue on both sides. The 1/200 model is correct, showing the tongue only on the left side

Re: 1:500 Errors

A recurring error in many 1:500 Boeing 747 models:

Netmodels, Sky500, Herpa (NG2) and Starjets 747s (100, 200, 300, 400) seem to have an incorrect "parted in the middle" rudder, which is only present on real 747SP models.



This pic shows the incorrect rudder line, in the middle of the rudder, on an E-4B model, which is based on the Netmodels 747-200 mould. This line should be present only in 747SP models.

Herpa/Hogan NG1 747 mould and Big Bird/Inflight500 747 moulds seem to have the correct rudder for the 747-100/200/300/400.

Herpa's 747SP using metal tails have also a incorrect rudder, it's not "parted".
See this CAAC 747SP model:
Herpa 1:500 CAAC B 747SP-J6 - Wings900 ID# 16137

However, the 747SP models with plastic tails are correct.
See this Boeing House Colors 747SP model:
Herpa 1:500 Boeing Aircraft Company B 747SP-20 - Wings900 ID# 10461


Thank you B747-enthusiast, Charter, Sérgio PT-TAA and SausageAndMash for infos!

Re: 1:500 Errors

Excellent summary! I hope someone at Herpa and Sky500 will read it.

Re: 1:500 Errors

The 747 rudder problem is an old issue.
I reported this to Herpa already in 2010. I am afraid, they don´t care.

See this old thread:

Re: 1:500 Errors

For Christ's sake guys, dump this 1/500 crap and change scale to 1/400. Many more accurate models made in this scale, because they are just that little big bigger.
