1:500 Errors

Dear Collectors,
now that we have said and written so much about Herpa mistakes etc I would like to take the opportunity to try to help improving 1:500 again (and yes, I am still naive enough to believe in it).

Alessandro, I would like to ask you to make this thread a sticky thread, to have it on the top of the chapter constantly.

I would like with this thread :

1. Members report mistakes on models WITH Pictures for ALL 1:500 manufacturers, not only Herpa !!! I dont want any witch hunting, but active help and support to make 1:500 better again and to push for higher quality again.

2. I will volunteer to make a compiled mail each month to my contact at Herpa to report errors (you can all do a seperate one if you like, but I want this to become a regular report for them).
If you have contact to the other manufacturers, volunteers come forward....

3. I dont want any comments or discussion around any Errors, just one post, Pictures, that's it because (see 4)

4. It shall also serve all collectors as quick "Database with Foto" to check their models for possible errors once they have received them. It will became easier to overview if we avoid discussing each thing in length....that we can do in other threads.

5. It will also help mebers to know what they should watch out for when buying the models, in a shop for example. In case you don't know the errors before, you might not see them right away.
I had the same with the Pan Am 747, I needed to look at it twice to see it...

Therefore would ask Charter also to delete all mails like such.

Who will support me e.g. what do you think ? Example how it should look like as below !

I just made a mail now reporting (with Pictures) :
PA 747
SAS 737
RAM 737
THY A320
DL 767 Pink

Re: 1:500 Errors

The errors you've highlighted on the ANZ 789 and sas aren't on mine. However I did have the Delta 764 gear the wrong way round but I rectified that.

I think this is a fantastic idea! I support you 100%. If herpa, for example, can send us a newsletter advertising their perfect models, we should be able to send them a newsletter advertising their less than perfect models. This is perfect and a great way to keep the other manufactures in check. Great thinking.

Looks to me as though this has been scratched off either at the factory or during transportation.
