Herpa. What's Happening?

Mon Feb 20, 2006 3:39 am

Hi everybody.
I tried many times in last two months to get inside the Herpa website, but everytime I've tried I was never able to go there. I received few newsletters from them, so I argued they are still in service.. But how about their new models? The retailer where I usually buy Herpa models seems to have any new too.

Does anybody have some fresh (and hopefully good) new?

Thanks. Paolo

They're still recovering from the Chinese labor setbacks a few months ago. Slowly the new releases are being made.
Holy sh*ts and burritos.

?? All models are made in Dietenhofen, Germany.

I don't know what's wrong, but I've been opening the Herpa site every week.

I've been in there several times over the last few weeks without a problem.

Which is why all Herpa boxes have a sticker that says "Made in China" on them.

Not my LX 343 or my NW 319. I'll check the other ones later on.
