Default Herpa Premium ....Delta 747

Now do I have everyone's attention??? Well sort of.. This is a former Lufthansa Herpa Premium 747 that was yellowed out. It got a new life as a Delta having been dissected and repainted. It now resides with a close collector friend of mine in Tel Aviv. Well worth the effort...

That's a really nice piece of work. One of a kind!

Great work on that one, if only this was an actual release.

My Lufthansa 727 herpa Premium is also yellowing and I am thinking of doing the same. Here in my country there is a very skilled guy that could do it for me. Maybe I will add the same livery as before printed by herpa. Good idea you gave to me dear Crownvic. Thanks.

I wanted to do a similar custom with my Lufthansa 727, but make it into NWA. Didn't have the patience to tape off all the windows lol Looks fantastic though !! Premium 747 is relatively high on my list, I just never see any listings for decent prices
