From the email - "These two ground plates allow you to place your 1/200 scale model treasures onto a small scenery. This first set includes two plates with an area of 50 by 50 cm / 19.7 by 19.7 in each. Due to a stable thickness of the plates, there is no need to glue the plates onto another surface. The first plate can harbor up to four short- or middle range aircraft, such as the Airbus A320, Boeing 737 or any regional aircraft. Due to its diagonal design, two further mid-range aircraft models or one large wide-body aircraft all the way to the size of the Boeing 747 or Airbus A380 can be placed onto the second plate. An additional plate or two are currently in the concept phase, then enabling various combinations of the different plates."
Yes!! Nice tarmac! Hope this is the beginning of more 1:200 accessoires!! Very happy with this announcement. For the models; AF 707 and LH 748, but think the last one will gj..

Looking at the photos of the LH 748 to me the blue looks a bit too light, anyone think the same? Also, why does the cheat line curve at the rear? I hope the final model has these small issues fixed as the Herpa 748 is a great model.
The model will have the same blue cheat line as the F-BLCA released by Inflight some years ago.
On this early B 707-328, I think it would have been more appropriate to reproduce the early version of the livery which was slightly different, and used until 1969.
Diversity is always interesting in a collection, at a glance , you can see the evolution of a livery over time.
I have always thought that manufacturers should listen and take advice of those who are ( or were) inside the airlines, it doesn't cost more money and most often, these guys have all the documents to make an accurate model.
Sometimes a model is more interesting than another one, research work is reduced to a minimum and more important : no guesswork.
Another point, more disturbing, the blue cheat line is far too high, on the forward fuselage, it is obvious, something needs to be done.
A comparison with what remains of the F-BHSL is interesting.
I think i'll send these pictures to Stephan.
