Default sneak pics Herpa B747-8i "Siegerflieger Fanhansa"

Spotted this bird today at eBay, I guess someone has some close contact with Herpa executive personnel because this item still announced "in production" and so far there are only rendered pictures.

If you have the budget and live in Europe, perhaps you can get this beauty before the rest of us. Hogan has also released its version but I prefer this mould by a long shot, I noticed Herpa made a correction to the windows. I have the very first B747-8i and it has printed the wrong shape of them.

It's a nice looking model but I will wait until it becomes available worldwide and for a cheaper price.

Good luck!

I hope it is a nice model. I also hope it isn't too pricey. The only thing that prevented me from getting the fanhansa in 1/400 was me wondering how long the aircraft will stay like that and would it be relevant in 5 years at my airport.

But I only display 200's so I wouldn't mind

I'd like to add this to my collection. I think Herpa did well with their 747-8 mould.

I am sure there will be a diecast version of it once Gemini and JC Wings go for it (I assume JC Wings will do it)

....nice model ....they (Herpa) have released the A321 of this one as well minus the "Siegerflieger" titles.....

....also Hogan/Limox have released both of these (A321 and B748i) with just the standard "Fanhansa" titles in addition to the B748i with the "Siegerflieger" titles......

....it'd be nice to see a "Fanhansa" titled A346 made in 1:200 as well ......
