Until I ventured on this part of the forum I believed them to be a type of disease that you got from a brothel...

Could someone please help me here?

Thank you,

Neil Harrison

herpa aircraft are very high quality, very detailed die cast 1:500 scale models. They come in many types and colors. Although there are not as many available as Schabak, they are much better quality and Herpa makes a lot of special and limited edition models.

Just to add on to what Jetstream 61 said, the Herpa Die Cast Aircraft Models also are all painted on. They have no cheap decals that come off in 5 minutes. They're great aircraft. You can take a look at some at www.herpa.de. Good luck

Take a look at the 1/200 scale herpa models, they are simply astounding in their quality. They are extremely accurate reproductions - they use cad/cam to create the molds. The detail is fantastic - and the quality far better thna you could achieve with a plastic model that was painted and decaled. These models are expensive, but worth it in my opinion.

I'm not a fan of the 1/500 scale herpas, they are too small and hideously scaled in some aspects (check out the undercarriage!) and for the most part bear a vague resemblance to the original.

Decals are some kind of stickers, that most model makers use instead of real paint. That way, the sticker comes off after some time...and that sux.
