After Fokker 100 and SSJ-100, what about the B717?

Hi.
Let me start with..."i don't see the usefulness to start a thread like this", "Charter why you post stupid threads like this!"...i understand your opinion, i accept your opinion, etc. etc..
In a Covid-19 pandemic period, where everything was weird and everything will be weird in the future, even Herpa must restart re-thinking its marketing strategy. Herpa has to find the way to survive and to project a new future, and this is possible selling more models possible. For this reason i expected to see a fleet of Emirates, Lufthansa, Qantas, Qatar Airways and Chinese airlines widebody models; instead Herpa resumed regional models like the Fokker 100 and even the SSJ-100! Honestly speaking, in a weird and dangerous period, a weird and "marketing dangerous" decision from Herpa. Not narrowbodies but regional models, one of them with few operators (SSJ-100), even if the mould is already well tested (and wonderful).
So, why not to stress for the production of the wonderful B717? Reflecting in a "weird" way during a "weird" period, Herpa could easily restart the production of one of its best moulds!
Which airlines are missing:



























Licenses, of course, but many models to produce.
Are you interested in "stressing" Herpa about restarting the B717 production?
Thanks for sharing your opinion and thanks for participating.

I really appreciate all your efforts Charter, I wish we had like 10 more collectors like you, then definitely you will be forcing Herpa to listen much more to us

Turkmenistan Airlines (Latest Livery)

In addition to:

Instead of spending money for these already existing moulds i would like new moulds like ARJ or Yak-42 or military bombers, for example.

B717, there is only Volotea which would fit collection. I did several as customs, but I wouldn't say no to a Herpa release (despite I prefer the A319).

Re: After Fokker 100 and SSJ-100, what about the B717?

I think the Volotea 717 would be a neat model to have for sure, I've seen Pierre's excellent work and know that the model will be a stunner in 1/500. Hawaiian's new livery might also make it into my collection, I plan on flying the HA 717 when I'll (eventually) make it to HNL.

Speaking for me only but I would rather prefer new model type not existing in 1/500 even if they are not perfect than another mold of a model type still produced.

Pierre answered for me. Too late, the Queen has gone and very few models are missing in 1:500 (eccerto for the re-releases). I would prefer a new airliner like the Yak-42, or ARJ21 etc.

Re: After Fokker 100 and SSJ-100, what about the B717?

Ale (and others), aside from all this....anyone a clue what that 757 in the back is ?

I would buy some 717, actually liked that plane very much and managed to fly 2 different Blue1. Extra took a connecting flight to HEL via CPH instead of the Nonstop Finnair one from Hamburg.
