Default 1:200 gse.....

Hi All

I now have my base board to start work on my Manchester, UK, Runway Diorama...

The reason i am going for a taxiway/runway diorama is due to the distinct lack off 1:200 GSE that would make a terminal set up come to life... Obviously there are the rare Herpa sets but these are ridiculously priced and would break the bank to get a good number of them!!!

So does anyone reckon there will be some 1:200 GSE released from any manufacturer coming up?? Maybe from Gemini or someone?? If so i may re-assess my diorama build.

If not im going to continue with my Runway option....

Cheers......

I'd like to (the wishlist is long), but that stuff is so expensive to make, that it remains a pricy collector's item.
The solution is to find someone with a less expensive production method and a fundamental know-how.

Gemini says on their website that we can expect more 1:200 accessories. Still waiting and hoping!

I might try, I can make a mould using wax and one of the herpa gse stairways my ideas is:
Put the gse in a block of wax
Cut around the edges
Remove top half
Take out herpa gse
Stick top part back on with hot wax
Drill a hole until I reach the cavity
Pour in melted plastic
Wait to dry
Sell for £8 a set
Does this sound good?
Regards
Kris

Plastic generally melts at a higher temperature than wax, so the plastic would melt the mould.

Sounds illegal to me, copying a product that Herpa are still producing?

I have 2 different types of Airport tractor here that are awaiting painting, I will try and get some shots of them soon, they are in 1:200 and should be available pretty soon, will update with more info when I get it.

If you're intending to sell these for £8, you should know that they're still readily available for around 7 euros/12 USD, which approximates to £5 and £7 respectively - and they're already painted...

Yep, can't see any problem with selling bootleg merchandise. Nope, no problem at all.
