Herpa 1:200 AA Question

Among Herpa's selection of 1:200 airliner models in the $35.00-50.00 price range are a 737-800 and 777-200 of American Airlines. Since these models are made of plastic, how authentic-looking is the bare metal appearance?

BTW, I have seen some of Herpa's "economy class" 1:200 models and am very impressed with their authentic look and detailing. I am considering whether to collect this scale along with 1:400 die cast models.

Check out the DragonWings and Jet-X models that are available as well. I think you'll be impressed with them.

Hi,

Essentially the models are painted with silver paint to simulate the bare metal look. You have to use your imagination a little bit. They are not as authentic as the Geminijets polished metal look, but these two birds from Herpa look real good. Hope this helps.
