Herpa 1/200th Boeing 747 LH

Sat Feb 15, 2003 11:14 am

Hi guys,

Just got my newest model, a Herpa 1/200th Boeing747-200F Lufthansa Cargo. All I can say is 'wooooww'. Really one of the nicest models I've ever seen. Very high quality, solid built, good detail, and - most of all - extremely big.

If you're planning on buying a new model and don't care about some extra €'s or $'s, I'd say 'go to your local Herpa dealer and take a look at one of them'. Last saturday I had the chance of havin the NW 747 in my hands. Nice model as well.

Greets,

How big is it? Normal 1/200 models are about 30cm.

Yup, very bid indeed. After all, let's not forget it's a widebody. And, the wings are really big. You can even see through the engines, just like the real thing...

DC-10 Levo: Well, if you measure the length from the top of the nose to the end of the vertical tailfin, it's 34cm + - 1cm...

By the way, nice website you mentioned. They have a nice picture of my model:

DC-10 Levo: No idea. Probably to sell a few more? I may have been off by 1 cm or so, but certainly not by 6 cm. And I even measured to the end of the vertical tailplane, not the end of the fuselage...
