Herpa Wings's Models. Where Are They Made In?

Thu Jun 28, 2001 8:36 pm

As you may know, Herpa Wings is a German Model Company. It produces high quality aircraft models.

However, recently, someone told me that their production line has been moved to Mainland China. That means, they are no longer being made in Germany.

Can anyone confirm this?

iheard something like that too.
i have a herpa model recently where on the box it says made in china...i guess they do it there now for CHEAP labor and costs, etc.........
i hope the quality is not effected by it.

Most of the Herpas purchased in the last few years were all made in China. I believe Herpa has outsourced the production of its Wings product to a company in China. The quality has not suffered, as far as I can tell.

The Quality shouldn't have changed. The Company in China is under close supervision and workers are given massive amount of trainings. So............
