I'm building a 1:600 model airport to combat my insomnia. I was wondering if Herpa have started making 1:600 planes yet. If so where in Canada or online can I start buying some?
At the moment I have about 200 1:600 Schabak. As you know many of these are pretty poor quality but I will continue to collect them. If anyone is looking to sell some me please reply or PM me.
I'm presently trying to find a way to effectively light my runway and taxiways. Does anyone have detailed instructions on doing something like this with fibre-optic cable? I ditched the idea of using LEDs, it was a mess.
Yep, Herpa Magic. You can find them at most online model retailers and herpa.de. They have similar landing gear as Schabak's, but like their other models, have no decals. So no "yellowbirds", "Dude, Where's My Door?", and "PAINT ME!!!" planes.
Quoting YOWza (Thread starter): Does anyone have detailed instructions on doing something like this with fibre-optic cable?
Herpa has a lighting kit, but it's expensive.

What is the difference between 1/144 and 1/500?
Talk about a bump and a hijack Wink
144 is bigger than 500. If your 1:500 model is one inch, then it'll be about 3.47 inches in 1:144 scale.
I'd explain it in a different way: You need to put 500 of the 1/500 planes in a row row have the length of the real plane, and you have to put 144 of the 1/144 planes in a row to get the length of the real one. Same with height, width, etc.
