Herpa:

Once again a comparison of the variants of the Lufthansa 747-8I D-ABYA Brandenburg in new color scheme from 2018/2019.

So far I have discovered four versions (see table and picture above - release one to four from left to right). I think that the first two versions are identical in model!

 

1st, 3rd and 4th release - from left to right

 

2nd release

 

The blue color on the rear part of the fuselage and on the tail of the forth release (on right hand) is slightly brighter.

 

But the two blue tones are really hard to distinguish. I suppose that with the lighter blue tone (on right hand) always the bigger Lufthansa logo was printed on the tail!

   

Sheets with the original Lufthansa colors - forth release (on right hand) is slightly brighter

 

Forth release - on left hand - box with additional imprint "Lufthansa Officially Licensed Product"

Comments, additions etc. welcome :-)

S7 Airlines A320-200 - Sibir livery - registration VQ-BPN - 4th WingsClub release 2020

Herpa statement concerning WingClub releases:

"In the future, we would like to continue to present the new models in detail in WingsWorld at the time of the concrete planning of the product, but we will only include it in our order form or in our online Club Shop when it is actually in stock, with an item number and price. Of course, you will be informed separately about the availability in WingsWorld, as well as on our website. The first presentation in WingsWorld, as with the two models presented here, is therefore virtually a pre-announcement, true to the motto: “Coming soon to the Club Shop”. Herpa Wings Club members who have subscribed to all Club models will, of course, not have to place a separate order."
