MGL Convention:


Yesterday the 16th MGL Convention took place. On more than 60 tables, visitors were presented models of all scales, but also many other aviation-related articles - as usual, of course, in the best weather and in a relaxed atmosphere.

The 17th MGL Convention on 29.10.2022 will again take place at MGL Airport, but in a different location. Details will follow ...



Herpa - coming soon:


Embraer E195-E2 „TechLion“ - sample shown at MGL Convention yesterday



Herpa - re-release:

518895 AN-225 Mriya and Buran

AN-225 Mriya is unchanged


On the back of the box the references to social media have been added (re-release on the left hand)


On the Buran there are some differences (re-release on the left hand), e.g.

- the print of the light honeycomb structure/tiles is much paler

- the position of some prints is different (e.g. black Buran lettering)

- the print of the cockpit windows

- the course of the border of the black tiles is partly completely different (e.g. at the nose) and seems to be a bit "variable" from model to model ;-)

Herpa - news:

504997-001 Boeing 747 Dreamlifter:

"The tooling for the 1/500th scale Dreamlifter has been badly damaged during relocation to a new manufacturing facility. A repair turned out not to be economical. Therefore we have decided to redesign and build some of the necessary moulds, including some improvements. First, however, we will cancel all existing orders. As soon as the new moulds are ready, we will re-announce the article."


530583 LOT E170 and 530576 LOT E195:

Originally announced as new releases for autumn 2017, but not produced until now. Based on new contractual agreements with the airline, production can now start after all. The models will be announced again in due time - probably with new article numbers!
