Yes and it's appalling that it's a new problem, 10, even 15 years ago landing gears were just perfect.

Re: Q&A with Stephan Kuelgen (Herpa product manager)

Maybe I'll join in but if not here are my questions:

-- Any chance of an Air Baltic CS Series
-- If they can adjust the engine pylons on the A320
-- If there's an A350 from Air Carabies in sight?
-- What about new Austrian Airlines narrowbodies?

Re: Q&A with Stephan Kuelgen (Herpa product manager)

A few questions,

Timeline for seeing CS100/300 and 787-10?
Chances on more UK airlines/aircraft types?
Any possibility of a A330MRTT?
And two specific models, the BA Cityflyer E-170 and Cityjet SSJ-100?

You didn't see photos of the new A320 family at the toy fair? It's the gears that need sorting now...

I'd also like to know if Herpa have any plans to release this one, and an Interjet SSJ.

Also what their plans are in general for future releases of narrowbodies and regionals from the Americas.

For example, with their love of special liveries perhaps a series of JetBlue A320s to add to the A321 and E-190?

Re: Q&A with Stephan Kuelgen (Herpa product manager)

They have also not released any 767-200 in ages... would be good to see one. Also a new 777-200LR, A340-500 or 767-400ER which are pretty rare too.

Re: Q&A with Stephan Kuelgen (Herpa product manager)

Two important models for 1/400 collectors that would sell well:

1) When will they reissue their 1/500 Tupolev Tu-114 in 1/400 scale?

2) Why don't they make their 1/400 Antonov An-225 with the Bhuran shuttle on top?

I think that Herpa is diminishing its 1/400 production, but I might be wrong, surely our friends who also collect 1/400 will give a better answer, this is what I believe though, let alone producing "special" models.

What do you mean? They just brought the mould back and released UTair and United "Saul Bass"
The B767-400ER indeed... a Delta regular livery would be a good release.

Well, the C Series mould is not even ready in 1:500, but I suppose it will be sooner or later, and my guess is that Air Baltic might be on the pipeline

The A320 pylons were corrected on the new mould presented at the Toy Fair. Like Allan said before: now they need to correct the oversized gears!

Oh yes I forgot that, but they should also do some present 762.

As for Utair, I am not really a "peculiar" plane collector, I am mostly all for flag carriers and American vintage. :-)

Re: Q&A with Stephan Kuelgen (Herpa product manager)

some of my questions were already posted here, in addition i think the LCC questions will come up in any case. Apart from Easyjet, Ryanair, Wizzair, could you please ask for
- Jet2.com? Would love to see an 737-300 or -800
- Small Planet A320
- and (non-LCC): EL AL 737-900 ?

Thanks Robin!

Thare are no more present 762's flying for flag carriers
However I agree that an American Airlines 767-200 would be wonderful

I think United still does, but I may be wrong.

I second this, the 737 in El Al Colours is missing.
