Default Should i buy a 1:200 Herpa c5 galaxy?

Hi guys!

i need all your opinions.
i have seen multiple photos, both in this forum and out, of the herpa c5 galaxy.
do you guys think its worth the money?
i would really like one of these. but the model (like all other models) has its flaws, and the insane price tag really makes you think thrice.
i dont think anyone will release a more affordable diecast one, and with some other models, i once did hold of on buying some that i really like, but assuming that the manufacturer will re-release the model, only for them not to ever release them, and only to see resellers sell them for insane prices.
ps : im not in this hobby to make money, i collect ones that i like and keep them

If you want a C-5 in 1:200 you don't have a lot of choices. I have a PCM and the Herpa. They both have their pluses and minuses. I'm glad I have one of each. Have you seen this.....better price than eBay.

The model does have some flaws, but I am happy with mine. I would buy it as I am not sure how many others will ever make one, I doubt one will ever be made in Diecast.....

I’m happy with mine, only criticism is the tail elevators are too thick.. it will be very difficult to find the PCM version as that one is long out of production..

i think this older livery looks real good. the fact that this version has true tf39 engine moulds compared to the cf6s in the earlier c5m release, is quite good too. physically speaking the engines were a subtle but the most striking difference between the A and the M.

how hefty is it compared to the herpa an225 crownvic?

both models are similar in size and weight being resin.

I was lucky as a young lad to witness first hand the prototype C-5 doing airworthiness tests in Atlantic City NJ.. This huge beast would fly down the beach low and in slow flight, gear down with its yellow nose probe pouring 4 huge black smoke trails out the back that went on for miles. The sound of those T39 "organ grinder" engines stopped everyone everywhere on the beach in their tracks with a stare and look up at that amazing beast. This went on every day for several weeks. Its one of those aviation memories that one will never forget.

wow you are really lucky crownvic!
for that reason alone, i would think that the hefty pricetag of the herpa c5 is justified for you, because of the memories and nostalgia it brings.

so that means that the herpa c5 is a pretty solid feeling model?

I was hoping Gemini would eventually roll out a C-5 to go along with all their C-17 models. If they do, they will have my $$$. Cheers! T7

diecast manufacturers dont seem to want to make the c5 or the big antonovs. i guess there isnt enough liveries to justify the cost

I will be the voice of reason to say nay. Selection is usually a balance between price vs quality and you just gotta find that sweet spot. I personally can't even come close to justifying the price, with it's flaws. Unless Herpa decides to lower the price to the $175-$200 range, I'm all for waiting for another manufacturer like JC or Gemini, even though it might not be in the cards this round, it might someday. Besides you can enjoy three models to this one C-5 that seems to have several issues with accuracy.

or you can just buy it as a one time expense and just forget about ruminating about it in your mind and move on to the next thing

Just imagine to yourself right now if someone suddenly buy that one that you are thinking about... and you won't see it again for a while. and even if you did, it would still cost as much or even more.

I think that will help you to decide....lol....

I am with you by 100%. The C5 is not much bigger than the 747 and A380, it’s just limited to a few liveries that can be done without modifying details of the mould. That may result in a higher - or exorbitant - retail price but just like you I do expect a model that is, at least, not inferior to current 1/200 model standard. The Herpa release does not meet my expectations and even at $175 I wouldn’t get it. Easy going.

In my case I thought to buy a HERPA C-5 as the little sister ships in 1:400 from DRAGON and GJ are really well done.

But just one month ago I had the chance to get for a very good price the first release.

After holding it in my hands I changed my mind and so their second release is also now here…

BTW I see them nearly every week from my house flying to/from Ramstein or Spangdalem AFB. Sadly not do noisy during the RHEIN-MAIN AFB days, but still very impressive…

I remember getting to walk through the C5 at Expo 72 at IAD. They had the ramp down in the rear and nose up. That was a great airshow!

After holding it in your hands, it felt worth it?

My PCM (White Top/Farnborough) C-5 has 4 nose wheels. I wonder which came first for PCM the Grey or the White Top. I also remember with great regret not bidding on ebay last November for a PCM a White Top C-5 which ended up selling for only $51.00!!!! (I think $115.00 total with the shipping) That would have by now, be wearing an American Airlines livery. And yes, I am happy with my Herpa C-5 both 1st and 2nd.

I have both of the C-5M and C-5A Herpa models in 1:200 scale. Outside of the thickness of the wings being slightly thick due to the model being made of resin, they are wonderful models. I remember looking at the PCM version of the C-5 while it was available. The shape of the nose section of the PCM model, to me, was unacceptable. For me, they were well worth the price, however we all different depths to of our pockets when it comes to what we can afford in this hobby.

anyone here with both the c5m and c5a, could you share with me photos of both models' landing gears?
based on photos, the c5a seem to have better MLG gear doors, whereas the c5m seems to have gear doors that are a bit too high

I am going to make a recommendation and that is for you not to move forward with this purchase. I think most will agree.

May I ask you: Why that? Most of those who finally bought one or two of them seem to be very happy. I can only speak for myself - and I didn’t like the Herpa version - but that’s just an opinion. I have seen the Galaxies frequently at FRA Air Base where they complemented the 747s on the other side of the airport quite well... the shape of the Herpa version wasn’t perfect, that’s why I skipped it. StillAir, for example, also has a close relationship with FRA - and purchased two of them.

I would get it, hold it, look at it up close, nit pick it to death and then step back and see if you can live with it, and if not sell it. I think that is what's done with most other purchases by collectors anyways! Without there being shows or a shop that has it in stock that you can visit don't see any other way!

I think also that you buy it, look at it and… if you don’t like it you could easily send it back to your retailer (normally should only cost you the shipping costs).

BTW looking at the prices of the first release, I said for myself, that it wouldn’t be a bad investment anyway because in some stores the second release is now sold out or only a few copies are left…

Because everyone here myself included has recommended to buy it but the topic author is not convinced with our answers and seems to find reasons or concerns not to move forward. I have a feeling he will have buyers remorse. If you read my comments I too have purchased both and praise it. I think I speak of experience having extensive C5 viewing times (which does not mean a whole lot) growing up and living near the approach and departure corridor of Dover AFB the largest C5 base and experienced several weeks of certification flights of the prototype as previously mentioned.

StillAir, for example, also has a close relationship with FRA - and purchased two of them.
Because everyone here myself included has recommended to buy it but the topic author is not convinced with our answers and seems to find reasons or concerns not to move forward. I have a feeling he will have buyers remorse. If you read my comments I too have purchased both and praise it. I think I speak of experience having extensive C5 viewing times (which does not mean a whole lot) growing up and living near the approach and departure corridor of Dover AFB the largest C5 base and experienced several weeks of certification flights of the prototype as previously mentioned.
alright, noted crownvic. thank you for your input

If anyone is interested in buying the herpa wings c-5 white let me know I’m selling one

More ideal for me is a trade, I want to get the gray one instead of the white and want to trade for the first release
