Re: 1/500 Purchases for 2016

Just got THREE parcels in two days, fully packed with a huge load of new and nice additions to my collection. No, they are no new releases - but some "older birdies":

Austrian Airlines B777-200 "Spirit of Austria" - OE-LPD
Austrian Arrows DHC-8-Q400 - OE-LGB
Austrian Arrows DHC-8-Q400 - OE-LGH
Austrian Arrows Fokker 70 - OE-LFL

Thanks! I'm especially glad to have the Hogan-DHC-8s: they are really hard to find in Europe... Well, they are impressive - and altogether EXPENSIVE!
That means: no fancy models for the next few months. Except for the "normal" new releases...

Those Hogans are among the stars in the batch you purchased. I'm looking for the Cosmos, Suzuran and Tsubaki, for a long time, the first two were the toughest to find so far...

Funny thing is, I got the Tsubaki fairly quickly. The other three came just now - and as for the Suzuran: I'm still looking... But also the ANA DHC-8 Set of 2 wasn't easy to find...

Re: 1/500 Purchases for 2016

Finally, I got these models in HKG just before they ran out:

Herpa Vietnam A350XWB
Herpa Finnair A350XWB

These two are beauties. Looking forward to more A350XWB

If it's the prior, it should now be available at all those authorised seller in Hong Kong, incl. 80M Bus Model (they've got a few shops across the town, & they do have an e-shop which ships to overseas) and Toys & Games stores at Hong Kong International Airport.
For the latter, I'm not sure if there's any outlet in Hong Kong having it in stock...will need to check.
Thank you. I missed to visit the Toys & games stores in HKIA. I was close to missing my flight. I was able to grab 2 models in Westmain as my car service was near the area.

Thanks again for the tip.

Re: 1/500 Purchases for 2016

Just received 2 very nice models !

Sky500 --Airbus A330-300 Turkish Airlines ( very surprised about the Sky500 quality )

Herpa --- Airbus A350-900 Finnair. When I purchased it I was not 100 % convinced. The AY livery is not my favourite but it suits perfectly on the A350. After seeing it on my hands, this is s VERY beautiful model. Herpa just did an splendid job.
