Default Too good to be true?

Hi all

I bought a Herpa premium Delta 727 for 115 USD from Germany. The seller says no yellowing and in very good condition. These should go around 350 USD right? Dai

115 USD for a Delta 727 is a good deal, but nothing too exciting. The narrowbody Herpa Premiums usually go for $125-$175, I'd estimate. Sometimes a little higher or lower. Occasionally the United and Pan Am 727s fetch quite a bit more, but $350 for the Delta 727 would be a very unusually high price. The only Premiums which regularly fetch north of $300 are the 747s (especially the KLM) and the AA A300, which usually sell for $400-$500 and sometimes quite a bit more.

The shipping price on that DL 727 from Germany is fantastic, though. $8.49 worldwide. Good on the seller for not jacking that up.

You mean this chappie...



That's a good price but as per Skosh these don't go for the huge amounts that some of the others go for...

I haven't seen this edition with any yellowing - although time may tell...

Still prefer 'em metal though....

I saw one of these in a local hobby store about 10 years ago. There was not a bit of white on it. Hard to believe something could yellow so much. Who knows, maybe it was all the fluorescent lights. I would like to see Gemini do the 727-200 in this scheme and someone the 737-200. The 97 interim scheme is very rare in this scale.

Exclamation Re: Too good to be true?

Yes, also this model is yellowing (mine did)

And regarding the shipping costs...

Well, this WAS a nice way to send parcels up to 1 kg with DHL via "Maxi Letter" world wide incl. tracking and insurance.

But as I sadi.. it WAS !

Since 2019 DHL allows only documents to be send this way. And if they saw during the custom scanning that there are no documents inside they send it back or destroy it...

Therefore it is a high riscy way and I whish you good luck

Not to good to be true. It looks like you got a pristine copy, at a good price. Nice work.

My favourite of the Premium line, I am lucky to own.

AA A300
Western Pacific 737 Purgatory Resort.

I would love to own the Lufthansa 747 in the Expo colours. Always way past my budget when it surfaces. I like the United 727 as well. I just wish they hadn't messed up the titles. It's not a huge deal, but a mistake.
