Default NEWS from Herpa

I just received an Email from Herpa, in which they stated that the 1/200 Il-62 will make its first appearance in the first quarter of 2021 They are currently optimising the last production processes.

AND the 1/500 Tu-114 mould was not selling as well as Herpa expected (and they regard this market as the reference of creating their moulds), so they decided not to create a 1/400 and 1/200 - feel free to share your point-of-view with them. Just to speak for me I would take one in both scales whatever the price would be. I mean people still collect other brands despite the latest price increase of various manufacturers. And I would assume that 1/200 and 1/400 markets are bigger than 1/500 looking at the activity in this forum.
There'll also be also some DC-9s coming from them in 1/200 in 2021.

I'd be thrilled to see a 1/400 Tu-114. Is the Il-62 going to be plastic or diecast?

Not sure, I believe it'll be plastic like the An-12 was.

What is the best way to share that with them? I too would take one in both scales.
