1:500-scale freaking news

On the wrong track?

Dietenhofen: herpa’s product management is shocked about the newest Wings900 poll. »How could we make such incorrect assumptions about our customer wishes« they stated in an internal memorandum that has been leaked to the author. Moreover they argued that it may be perhaps appropriate to generally rethink their release strategy. However, they also recognized that it is very difficult to coordinate customer’s requests at the individual level, as they are faced weekly with a new bundle of requests from a single collector.

Antitrust investigation launched

Brussels: Margrith Vestager, the European Commissioner responsible for competition has launched an antitrust investigation against herpa, the 1:500-scale market-leader. According to the European Commission herpa in the last ten years took advantage of its dominant position to continuously cut back collector’s interest by constantly ignoring market requirements.

Re: 1:500-scale freaking news

Consumer’s revolution?

Trending new questions have made lately impact in the 1:500 Scale Discussion section of Wings900. Who decides about demand, the industry, the airlines, the shops or we, the consumers? The mind behind these intriguing questions is known for his wide (or to put it into his words »global«) collector’s focus demonstrating us continuously how our buying habits can determine production standards.

Does life exist out of earth?

Thanks to threads as »Herpa mysteries…« at least there is still life on Wings900. If you want to experience how discussions take on alien proportions drop in at »Herpa mysteries…«.

Re: 1:500-scale freaking news

Attention Windows 10 (mobile, Android a.o. platform) users!

You are unhappy with herpa’s release choices? You believe that herpa products are not sufficiently geared to customer requirements?

Make sure Cortana knows your personal collector’s preferences!

This, however, presupposes that you know how Cortana works (learns, improves). Cortana monitors your daily activity and analyses your personal information not only on Windows 10 but via your World Wide browsing activities (if you think it does the latter only through Bing this is not the tutorial to show you how it works with for example Google or DuckDuckGo). I don’t have to go into further detail because the facts are actually very simple. The more you buy (and this is very important, BUY) on relevant online stores, the faster Cortana learns. Ok, you can tell Cortana that you »love the Boeing 737-300« (I don’t know why this specific airplane comes to my mind) but you will probably only receive unsatisfactory answers (»I honestly don’t think that’s in card for us«) that will remind you, that you have told her some improper things in the past. No, talking to Cortana in first line will improve her speech recognition capabilities but it won’t teach her your collector’s habits. Action speaks louder than words!

You are still using Windows 7, 8 or 8.1, you are a Windows 10 user but you have disabled Cortana?

Come on, what’s the matter with you, don’t you want the industry to tailor products and services for you individual needs?

You rely on other (voice) assistants (Alexa, Siri, Google Assistant, Bixby)? I suppose it does not make a big difference as long as you don’t forget the decisive clicks.

First amazon customer reviews were mixed:
»The level of detail of every single aircraft in airline service is amazing«
»The worst edition they have published, no A350 airliner,A320NEO,B737MAX...«

Yes, and you keep hanging around on a retro looking forum! The time is long overdue for you to get in tune with progress and return to civilisation.

Re: 1:500-scale freaking news

herpa press release:

As demand for die cast regional airliners in 1:500-scale is in decline, we decided to explore new avenues and are proud to present with Cake Devils a new partner. Cake Devils, Greensboro, is since many years one of the leading fondant airplane manufacturers in North Carolina. We are positive that with Cake Devils we will have in our product range a tasty alternative that will please even some collectors of wide-body aircraft.

Remarks for the naggers on this forum: The airplane replicas shown on the picture are just samples! Mr. Borgmann assured me that »further details can be added«.

Re: 1:500-scale freaking news

Do you have a healthy collecting attitude?

In the past 20 years many 1:500-scale collectors have suffered unwelcome surprises that might have had adverse consequences on their (emotional) health and Work-LifeBalance.

On behalf of SACK (Self-aid-group of Addicted Collectors Kicking the habit) DIPA (Danish Institute for Psychological Assessments) has developed a short self-test to check if you have a rather healthy or rather noxious collecting attitude.

Question 1:
If herpa would be close to announce a new batch of models, which statement would best express your expectation?

A) I would be rather without much expectation as the last batches weren’t so interesting.
B) I would just let me wait to be surprised.
C) I would hope that finally one of my long time wishes comes true.
D) I would be desperately hoping that finally many of my most needed models would be realised.

Question 2:
herpa has announced a new batch of 16 models. Only 3 fit into your collection. What would probably be your feelings and subsequent actions?

A) You are deeply disappointed, consider quitting, but end up ordering 1 model.
B) Anticipation is clearly dominating and not without a certain relief that you got away with comparative low expenses you order just the 3 fitting models.
C) You are disappointed and concerned, because many of your long time wishes just don’t come true but you end up ordering 5 models.
D) You are angry and desperate because more and more of the secondary focal areas of your huge collection dry out but you end up ordering 13 models.

Question 3:
A parcel with new models has arrived. How do you mostly react?

A) With anxiety and concern (about possible flaws, potential wrong purchase decisions)
B) Joyful anticipation
C) With nervous tension (you can’t wait to held the new models in your hands)
D) With confusion (you have made so much orders lately that you lost the overview)

Question 4:
Do you have storing concerns?

A) Not at all, I already got rid of the vast majority of my collection.
B) No I don’t have storing problems because from time to time I reorganize my collection and sell those models that have become of minor importance.
C) Yes I have growing space conflicts but somehow have managed to accommodate new models in the past months.
D) I will have to call the fire brigade to liberate me because I’m totally blocked by piles of boxes.

Evaluation
A) 0 points, B) 1 point, C) 2 points D) 3 points
0 – 3 points: You have a rather depressive attitude and should consider professional help.
4 – 7 points: You are pretty safe.
8 – 11 points: You are beginning to show addictive behaviour and should consider professional help.
12 – 16 points: You are beginning to lose control and should be hospitalised.
