Question HW MALEV IL-62 with Cubana wings?

Hi There,
I just bought this new 1:500 Malev IL-62. Box was sealed. Only problem is the wings are from a Cubana plane. Is this a one off? A production fault? Is the plane rarer? Any ideas would be helpful. Thinking of returning it, would like the proper one.


Regards,
AJ

It is definately a factory error, presuming it has a regular Hungarian reg oin the engines?
I would return it.

Hi AJ,

Had a similar problem a couple of years ago with a Portugalia Fokker 100 which had Air Niugini engines. I sent an e-mail to Herpa explaining the problem and attached some photos. They answered quickly and a couple of weeks later I had a free model in the mailbox and could keep the faulty model (which I rectified by removing the airniugini titles with nail polish remover).
Premium customer service from Herpa, I doubt you have this with any other manufacturer out there

I hope this helps!

In this case it was ebay. So one has to do the returns "dance". Regarding Herpa, I had a CSA A319 without a tire. They not only sent me a tire but the whole front gear assembly. Stellar. I really wish they made more 1:200 aircraft.
