Default Herpa 200 Capital Airlines Viscount

An iconic livery on an iconic airliner, Herpa's no-brainer would have been to make it. I asked, they said you don't need it on their mold. They managed United but Capital was an unreasonable expectation. Idiots in positions of authority, couldn't think their way out of a wet paper bag.

Hopefully someone else makes it, then. I saw one of these in Reading, PA a few weeks ago and it looked amazing. It was sat next to an Eastern Martin 404 (which is another 1/200 I'd love to see!). I'm sure it would sell pretty quickly if another company were to produce it

My Capital Airlines Viscount is in plastic, by Hawk and is scale 1:375. Think it was a passenger giveaway.

Herpa feels the Hobby Master Viscount is plenty, I explained Capital is an iconic livery deserving of Herpa's better Viscount mold. I sensed German detachment with the whole proposition. Andrew Klein makes an effort the rest are positively worthless.

I spoke to Herpa 4-5 years ago about this and got the same response. It is a no-brainer but HM's highly questionable release has clearly influenced Herpa to avoid releasing this beauty. I have a Capital Viscount from Martin at Small World that I love, but would have picked up a Herpa quickly as well. It's a real pity for us retro collectors that Herpa doesn't pay more attention...
