It is the first time since I have been on the forum and say that a wave of new products is rubbish for me. A lot of boring planes and liveries. Why we got an all white China Eastern A350, but no China Southern?

Not a great set of releases... we are really starting to get behind with some new liveries/aircraft coming out....


Aegean A320Neo (New Livery), Air Malta A320Neo, BA A321Neo, BA 787-10, MEA A321Neo (New Livery), SAS A320Neo (New Livery), UNITED 767 New Livery, Air Canada 77W new livery . . . .

All Missing!

For me only good news is Frontier! Well done for this! I will get following:

I must say I found this batch to be quite nice!!!

The Cabo Verde 757 are exotic surprises. Although I dislike their livery :tt2: these were regular visitors to my city before the pandemic, so it's nice to see them being released. They count as African releases, together with the Tunisair. I think it would be better to see the Senegal A339 or Ethiopian/Kenya Airways 737, though.

The TUI UK 787-9, yesss! Very nice one! Finally TUI UK 787!
Too bad it will probably have the too short MLG :neutral:

The Frontier A320 is a real surprise, finally another of the United States low cost carriers (after JetBlue and Allegiant). Now we need Spirit and Southwest! :clap:

Interjet SSJ-100 is also a cool release, although the airline is in bad shape. I think i'd prefer something else. But still nice to see something from Latin America. I'd prefer Copa 737 or Avianca A320.

Anyway, hope to add the Frontier A320 and TUI 787-9 to my collection at some point!

Hi.
First of all i want to make a GREAT THANKS to Michael, always on time each two months giving us "good" and "bad" news about Herpa production. This time Michael gave us (at least to me!) wonderful news: positive rep. added my friend. I don't receive positive reps since many months, but i think they are important to emphasize and gratify the good work a collector make for the community.
Thanks Michael.


Second: about the Cabo Verde Airlines B757-200WL set (Herpa will produce al the three models) the "usual suspects" would say "Herpa doesn't follow our suggestions, we are too few, some models were not produced because you, Charter, told Herpa to produce them..."...yes, maybe everything right, but i want to make a BIG THANKS to me (yes, this time to me!:lol:;)) because in February 2020 i stressed Herpa asking for Cabo Verde Airlines B757WL fleet!!!
Cabo Verde Airlines B757W (https://www.wings900.com/vb/images/misc/multipage.gif 1 2)
And now IT IS HERE!!! The three Cabo Verde Airlines B757-200WL will be produced! Thanks Herpaaaaaa.
P.S. I am particularly happy also for my friend Kamal, one of the few enthusiast for the eventual production of these three B757-200WL (and because, living in the Middle East, unfortunately has very few surprises from Herpa!).:love:


Third: regarding Interjet SS-100, i posted this thread/poll in June 2020
Time to ask Latin America airlines narrowbodies! (https://www.wings900.com/vb/images/misc/multipage.gif 1 2 3)
and now...INTERJET SS-100 has been announced! Thanks Herpaaaaaaa, i hope it will be a good start for more airlines of Latina America.

TUI Airways B787-9 is a masterpiece of beauty, a perfect add to the TUI Airways B757-200WL and TUIfly belgium B767-30WL.


Tunisair A330-200 WOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW!!! What a wonderful surprise.


Kuwait Airways A330-800neo will probably be a masterpiece of beauty, a real "model of the Year!"


Helvetic Fokker 100 new livery, what to say? How long i (we?) waited for this model? Yes, it isn't the E190, but it is a Fokker 100!!!


Frontier A320neo "Flo the Flamingo", Herpa broke another wall of USA airlines, finally Frontier! This model will be a masterpiece of beauty too, something very similar to the AMAZING TUIfly.com B737-800WL "Sardinia" with the Flamingo on the tail.

Well I am actually happy with this batch it contains many surprises :

1- There are few new airlines in this batch (Cabo Verde, Frontier, and Interjet) which is good to see something different than the usual airlines that Herpa always release, although I am only interested in Cabo Verde models, but I am also happy for collectors that were asking for Frontier and Interjet.
2- Kuwait Airways and Tunisair are the highlights for me in this batch, both are amazing.
3- Helvetic Fokker 100, although its not my cup of tea but I am sure that some collectors are happy with it, and I really hope to see more Fokker 100 in the future such as Montenegro Airlines, Austrian Airlines, and KLM.
4- Air Berlin B737-700 I really hope that it would be in the latest livery, I always wanted one.
5- Finally the Saudia A318 was totally unexpected, bravo Herpa, now please more narrow-bodies from the middle east.

Honestly think that this might be the best batch that we've had in a long time. The Cabo Verde 757's are interesting, aswell as the Tunisair A330. I am also very pleased to see Interjet and Frontier, although it would have been better to see an Interjet A320. Anyways, can't complain too much as I think this batch has a nice variety of models from various regions.

534581 Boeing 757-200 Cabo Verde "Island of Sal colors" Maybe
534598 Boeing 757-200 Cabo Verde "Island of Santiago colors" Maybe
534611 Boeing 787-9 Etihad "Choose Japan" Maybe
534628 DC-10-30 Finnair No
534635 Airbus A330-800 Neo Kuwait Airways Yes
534642 Boeing 787-9 TUI Airways (UK) Maybe
534659 Airbus A330-200 Tunisair Yes
534666 Boeing 737-700 Air Berlin No
534673 Airbus A350-900 China Eastern Maybe
534680 Airbus A320 CSA (2020 colors) Maybe
534697 Airbus A320 Neo Frontier Airlines "Flo the Flamingo" Maybe
534703 Fokker 100 Helvetic No
534710 Superjet 100 Interjet Airlines Maybe
534727 Airbus A318 Saudia Royal Flight No
534734 Frankfurt Airport, Terminal 1 Hexagon (cardboard kit) No
Note: A third Boeing 757-200 Cabo Verde, "Island of Santo Antao" will be a club model.

3 models from Africa! I really can't believe it, when did we ever have a batch that has 3 models from Africa?! I think that this is a new record for Herpa if I was not mistaken :P:P

Re: Herpa Wings News 11/12 2020
 
By the way, good move by Herpa to release the 3 Cabo Verde 757 liveries, just like they did with the Arkia A321. Would great if Herpa could now produce the regular liveries of many models which were released in special colors only.

For example: Delta B767-400ER, Azul A330-200...

Would go even further Kamal....we have 3 Africans, 3 Middle Eastern ones and 1 Latin American. Outstanding. And NOT 1 Lufthansa or Emirates. That is really rare.

I am very happy for the Finnair DC 10, a plane I had been asking Herpa for some time now since the DC10 series are published. Now only waiting for the SAS or Iberia.
Was spot on with prediction that at least one of those will be released. Really happy ! :) Wonder which livery it will be.
