FFS, it's spelled "Lightning". Please fix thread title.

you can't fix a thread title.

i didnt know they made lightnings in apple green. i'm having trouble taking these herpa releases seriously. they seem expensive, old mould-based, and just wrong. am i missing something here?

F_S mate, you can, well, the mods can but for whatever reason, Mover_Shaker needs a tutorial on how to send PM's

No your bang on, I don't think Herpa is in touch with what collectors want.

Herpa should have stayed at making airliners, cargo planes, and large military planes in 1/200, 1/400 and 1/500 scales. They are good at those. But taking the Witty moulds (which most of suck, there might be like one or two good ones), and selling the models at double the price of what Witty sold them for, makes them look like greedy amateurs.

agreed. though some people have expressed hope that they might do some harder schemes. that said, witty never really shied away from some of the harder ones either.
