Default Qantas DC4 by Herpa

SKU is 570855 Diecast model



Qantas DC-4
Rego VH-EDA
Titles "Pacific Trader"


One of the best models to join my Qantas fleet this year! (well right behind Qantas 100 years 787-9 ) anyhow.


Herpa have done an outstanding job with their DC-4 tooling. So far,there have only been two releases on this new tooling, being KLM and this Qantas release. Jean Pierre and Air France collectors or any prop collectors will not be disappointed when time comes for the Air France copy. You will see from the photo's that Herpa are an official licenced product holder. The 100 year anniversary is not only reflected on the packaging box, it is also beautifully displayed on the stand. Do yourselves a favour and get a Herpa DC-4. forget the old Hobby master one ok. Please note:- The Australian government minted Limited Edtion Qantas 100 Years silver proof coins I purchased separability of ebay.



Here are the photos of this model, enjoy
































Stunning model

Thanks Martin,


I did not know about these two releases. The USAF is now on my radar. The Herpa DC4 is very good.

The AA one really appeals to me. Wow! Sure looks the era, sure looks like a DC-4.

Very tempting!

I remain of the opinion that DC4 windows should be oval. Therefore the otherwise beautiful KLM model and Qantas models will not find their way to my collection.
