Improving Herpa models

Hello,

Sergio' fleet thread inspired me to realize that many of Herpa models has missing prints, especially for the wings.

So I decided to improve my models with wings decals, here are a few I improved. I think they are a lot better now.

Here is my Ryanair B737-800. Nothing over the wings...


And then...


(My decals for 737 were a bit small but I printed many of them so ... )

Next to come are Embraers. The Air France Hop had only white emergency markings while KLM had nothing :




Easy update for this A320 Aer Lingus, just white markings were missing :


Finally I tried to print 767 overwings emergency as well, here they are :


More to come soon !

Nooooooooooo!!!!!!! You've destroyed its collectors value!!!!

Jokes aside, it really is impressive how much of a difference something like this does. Seriously impressive, and a real shame that Herpa have left this out for as long as they have.

Re: Improving Herpa models

Thanks for your comments ! One or two years ago, I wouldn't have say I can't touch them because, I agree, this can perhaps change the value of my models but... now I don't mind as I don't plan to sell my models :p

Today I decided to make another kind of improvement. Sky500 did the A330 Wow Air with the wrong colour, Herpa did the same but they forgot to add pink parts on the wings. So I decided to paint them. Despite I'm not so good, I am happy to have improved it this way :

Nice, the flap canoes surely look better painted in bright colors!
