Default Herpa Lufthansa 747-400

I am glad gemini jets is making the Lufthansa 747-400..Herpa really messed up the line of the windows...


check out the nose section

Windows appear a little high on the Herpa.

The Herpa one is WAY overpriced for what you get.

If it's only the brand that is different and not the manufacturing process? Let's wait and see.

Nevertheless I hope on a flaps down release - what do You think?
I mean the latest release of Geminijets BA 747-400s included each a flap up and a flap down release

best regards,
Jan

Looking at some of the latest 744 releases by Gemini, the KLM 744, both clean and flaps down versions also have a rather high window line. The cockpit windows also seem small compared with the BOAC 744 that they did.

Just checked the nose section of the KLM with the real 1:1 version and indeed...
The passenger window line is much too high 🙁🙁🙁

Try getting the PH-BFT with the Wave Livery from JC Wings this one seems perfect it is an older release though.
Sorry for the old x-mas pic, but here's my H-BFT from JC wings, afaik this one was correctly done:


Hope this helps.
