Laser printing?
The new JAL models from Aero500 seem to use some kind of printing directly on the model.
Different from the normal tampo printing...

Stay tuned!
easyJet A319/A320 please! And Vueling, Ryanair, Wizz, Norwegian, WOW..

Exciting though!

Re: New 1/500 manufacturer: Eagle500

Sounds very interesting...I wonder when they'll release their first set and which models would they release in that set...

Re: New 1/500 manufacturer: Eagle500

I guess we first should give them time to really come onto the market with a quality product before everyone posts their wishlist. Btw - there's a sticky for that and I'm sure the guys from Eagle500 are able to look into that, too.
If they do care about licences and all that, there'll be the same issues that Herpa faces since ages...

This is almost impossible when the company is based in Europe. Works for China, but Czech laws are pretty strict about this.

I guess they would have to get some moulds first, but I guess A319/A320 should be a safe choice at the beginning. As for the airlines: Vueling A320 was just announced by Herpa for 05-06/2016. But yes, other European LCCs would be nice, since there are not that many of those models ever produced by Herpa.

I'm looking forward to see the new company's models. Maybe they surprise us with a completely new type of aircraft? Seagull's Yak-42 seems to have disappeared, so THAT would be a nice treat!

I think the go-to strategy, if licenses are no issue, is to create a model that is essential in every collection yet missing in 1:500 scale. Afterwards you can go out of the box on some airlines or liveries, but this is just IMHO.

Positive rep. for you as greeting of good luck, hoping for interesting airlines, nice liveries and well done models. The website is already a good news, now let we see the first releases.
