Great news from Herpa: the F-35 will be the next fighter to be produced! I don't like the real airplane (also for the many problems it has) but i love the 1:200 model.
Herpa 1:200 models are really beautiful, welcome to this great news!!!
Truly a great news. I just saw a few days ago that it is finally available at different sites for preorder now. But I can't decide whether I should get the f35, or the herpa USAF C17 globemaster in 1/500 scale first. Because I find both of them so good. But right now I am a little short of money so can't buy them both together. Which one of them do you think will get sold out faster? The C17 is of course a much older release, so there are very few of them remaining online now.
I don't think there is a link between the two airplanes because one is 1:500 while the other is 1:200. The 1:200 fighters and bombers are collected by the few crazy people collectiong everything ( like me) or by those who just collect 1:200 models (not so many). I imagine that the C-17 will have an high demand from all the 1:500 scale collectors and from the many collectors who love the C-17 mould.
