Default Which companies are making 1/500

I don't know much about the companies that are making 1/500 scale models but to me it seems like Herpa wings is the only one active? Are there any other company making 1/500 scale models? I only have two 1/500 scale model I have a DHL dc-8 and a Evergreen supertanker b-747 I am thinking about getting the dc-10 tanker and maybe starting a 1/500 military collection.

Herpa has definitely the most extensive 1/500 lineup!!

Aero500 has released a few 777s during 2016, and also has a DC-10, which may see some final action in 2017.

Aaah glad to hear this I hope Swissair, Icelandair and Laker Skytrain (or maybe an interesting Laker-Caribbean Airlines hybrid) will finally be released!!

Herpa is the main manufacturer in 1:500 scale, but occasionally other manufacturers release a model or two in that scale. Here's a link to the 600 or so 1:500 models we currently have available.

StarJets used to make 1:500 models too, but too bad it already ceased operations.

Ciao.
Just two manufacturers for 1:500 scale:
- Herpa
- Sky500
Herpa is the main producer with about 12 models each two months (civil and military), Sky500 started very well with two models each month while now it seems to have slowed down.
Herpa produces only licensed models and airlines while Sky500 produces models without licenses.
Hogan could produce a model each year if we are lucky (and without registrations), Aero500 was able to produce wonderful DC-10's but maybe they were too much wonderful because the manufacturer abandoned the DC-10 to focusing on ridiculous B777's with awful printings and even 5 models of the same airline with a different registration...anyway also Aero500 produces a batch of models each year.
