Default Herpa Airbus A340-600

I don't own any 1:500 scale airliners. 1:400 and 1:200 are my focus.

Having never even seeing one in person, I found a 1:500 Airbus A346 that has some personal meaning, and don't think it exists in larger scale with the specific registration.

How good is the Herpa mould? They're pretty big into 1:500, so I'm assuming it's pretty decent. But can one of you 1:500 guys comment as to its quality.

Thanks in advance for any and all input.

Default Re: Herpa Airbus A340-600

Went ahead and ordered a Herpa DLH A340-600 sight unseen. It's a very nice model. The reason I got this is we flew on it last fall from MUC-LAX.

I would have preferred 1:400 or 1:200, but I don't believe D-AIHB exists in those scales. The only nit is the city name ("Bremerhaven") is not on it unlike some other 1:500s with the names.

But be that as it may, here are some pics of my first and only 1:500.
