The engines are seperate parts, so the seam there is unavoidable.
If that's the price to pay for the improvements, then I'll pay it gladly!

Re: 1:500 Errors

I really don't mind that and I thought that gap was there because of the flaps! How can the go down without touching the fuselage?

Anyway, that really don't bother me

I think that's part of it anyway.

Re: 1:500 Errors

Well, they clearly go down in real life and on other models! ;-)

Re: 1:500 Errors

Not sure if this is an error, or just a really bad design decision, but check out the really sloppy wing-fuselage join on the Hogan Cathay new livery B777-367ER (B-KPM)...



Big ugly seam running down the plastron - in comparison, the Herpa AF 777-238ER has none of that...



Hey - even the 8 USD F-Toys B777-281 doesn't have that ugly wing-fuselage join problem.



The odd thing is that the new Cathay Dragon A330 from Hogan does not have the same issue...



However, it does have some weird anti-gravity induction silver painted-on nozzle on its engine pod rather than a real engine nozzle with, oh, I dunno, a nozzle on it...

Re: 1:500 Errors

The Cathay is not really an error... it's simply because the wings are not laterally inserted.
Same goes for many other earlier models.

Herpa uses an updated version of Hogan's 777 mould.
Herpa used to have the Hogan mould (777 NG1), but have developed the new mould later.

Is it then a error if the wing on my American 787 keeps falling out?

Now that we're used to the laterally inserted wings the old ones just look horrible and bulky, and they are - especially on airbuses, the central part is larger than it should be.

The errors in this thread are mostly livery wise, e.g. incorrect painting of patterns or colours

Yes, most of the mistakes here are actually production mistakes:

Gears placed backwards, printing errors (typos, missing windows or doors, missing registrations, etc), wrong engines, wrong moulds, etc.

Seamlines which are present in all the models of a specific release (for example: Hogan Cathay 777 have seamlines under the wings because they're not laterally inserted) are NOT mistakes

Well, the Cathay 777 wing-fuselage join seamline is not a mistake, it's more like a bad design decision. Of course, I've seen the same Hogan planes with little sprue shards off the landing gear (which BTW has issues with the wheels falling off the bogie in the latest batches) and streak marks on the engine cows.

Goddammit, CX. Can't you lean on Hogan and complain about the sloppy handiwork? When I saw the much better work done by Aero 500 on the new livery 777-367ER my heart sank.

Now, that is something i would call an error. But as Leo pointed out, even though it's not very obvious, it's not that kind of error that this thread is about.
