Re: 1/500 shops around the world

Austria:
- Vienna. Both stores that sell a vast range of Herpa models are located in the city center, comfortably to reach from all the touristic attractions (2-3 minutes walk from St. Stephan's Cathedral, which represents the very central point of the city).

1.) Kober, Wollzeile 16, 1010 Wien
Herpa models are downstairs, to the very back and to the left of the shop. Nice staff, the guy at the Herpa dept. is a collector himself.
The only Herpa eXtra retailer in Vienna. Nice range of models (even some 1:200 and SNAPfit, but mostly 1/500).

2.) Hilpert, Schulerstrasse 1-3, 1010 Wien (no website)Herpa models are upstairs - but behind glass, due to thefts in the recent past. You'll have to ask the staff to see them out of the box - but they're glad to help.
Not all current models available, but you can find some older and hard-to-get models.

Re: 1/500 shops around the world

In Belgium Hobby 2000 in Liège has a very large selection!
In Hong Kong you have many interesting shops
In Australia you have Toymaxco which is a very large store with a decent 1/500 selection in the Queen Victoria Building of Sydney.
In Luxembourg you have Spielbutek (or something like that) with a nice selection upstairs

There is an absolutely amazing shop at EMA in the UK. It stocks everything! Last time I visited I bought 3 southwest 737-300s for 13.50 each. (1/400). They have a large selection of sky500, Herpa ect.

I would add KaDeWe in Berlin which has a good selection and the prices were actually better on some models than Aviation Centre Berlin.

As mentioned previously Hong Kong has loads of shops.

Re: 1/500 shops around the world

Vic Diesel : Thank you, it's now on this database !

Wingslover : Thank you too ! You may have mingled the shop in Australia and in Hong Kong no ? I found a Toymaxco in Hong Kong and a Hobbyco in Sydney, at the location you say.

Jumbo747 : I only want real shops we can visit, not online sellers. I went to the website and I can't find your real shop. If I'm wrong, please give me the address and I will add it.

Jet2mallorca : Do you have the name of the shop / the location (the terminal) ? EMA is East Midland Airport isn't it ? If yes, I will add it to the database.

Citiflyer : Added

Geosnail : Thank you, I added only Modelytadel.cz beacause I can't find the address for Aviation-wings-prague.cz. I have one but it seems it's a house with google maps... do you have the address ?


Thank you everyone who posted here, the goal of this thread is to serve as a database we can use easily, as you probably know, the Herpa seller list is no more updated on their website. I will update this list with what I can find on others threads here.

It's basically a webshop only... The owner has a small shop in his house, but you have to make an appointment before going there.

They are specialized in trains. But they have a little shelf with 1/500 models. Just ordered a Vietnam Airlines A350 there.

Re: 1/500 shops around the world

Another shop to add for Austria:
Vienna - Z-Stüberl, Binagasse 60, 1230 Wien

A very small shop in the outskirts of Vienna (basically a room in a one-family house), it specialises in model trains of the Z gauge (1:220). However, in the webshop you can find a small but fine range of Herpa 1:500 models too, mainly older ones - even some OG - at very reasonable prices. You can discover one or two rare gems here.
Better order online first and then pick the models up in the store, as many Herpa models are not on display in the store but are stored in a warehouse.

Re: 1/500 shops around the world

3 shops in Portugal:

Airmarket - Rua José Lins do Rego 4.B. Lisboa
HobbyKit - Beloura Shopping. Loja B-09 - E.N. 9 - Quinta da Beloura II - Linhó
Pilotwings - Aeródromo Municipal de Cascais, Air Shopping, Tires

The first one deals with all brands from 1:500 to 1:400 to 1:200. They have some models displayed but it's better to tell and order what you want and they try to get it (this has been my main store for collecting the models i want) (same guys that were responsible for OceanWings)

The second one is mainly for trains and RC stuff and have a small area with few old models but ive been there recently and the owner told me they will start receiving 1:500 models again soon.

The third one is a small shop next to Tires airfield and it has some 1:400 models. They used to have 1:500 but none available at the moment and i suspect wont ever be anymore
