Does anyone know if Herpa will continue to manufacture their 1:600 airplanes?

Probably not, Shabak (sp?) I think is scaling down there 1:600 also, with eBay the prices are somewhat cheaper than buying from a model store for 1:500 models and 1:400, If you look at the trends from catalog to catalog from the Airplane Shop, you'll see that they are moving to the bigger models (e.g. herpa 1:600 to 1:500 and the 1:500 to 1:400 and Shabak 1:600 to 1:500)

Hope that was of some use. those aern't facts, just the way I am seeing the trends.

Lighten up while you still can, don't even try to understand, just find a place to make your stand and take it easy

I think I agree with you. I believe if Herpa was going to continue with the 1:600, they would have launched a few more by now.

I hope they will continue the magic-series! The Lufthansa A320 and DC10 were the last models. Especially the DC10 looks perfect!

Maybe we can see some new models announcements at the toy fair in nuremberg...
