  • Starting my 1:500 collection.

    Hi there.

    Just got my first 1:500 model (Starjets JAL 777-300 "Regulus"). A friend of mine bought me this one in Japan. I never saw a store selling SJs down here. The least hard to find here are Herpas.

    Are Herpa models good?

    Here is a pic of my first one:



    Thx!

    No most if not all 1:500 suck for quality.

      if you're going to go 1/500, stick with star jets. everything else in 500 scale sucks. in some cases herpa makes landing gear larger than the engines.

        Since I have a large Herpa Collection, I can say this: 1/500 older models are so-so, because the details, well, practically don't exist. But the New Generation definitely is rather good for the scale. As far as Starjets is concerned, here in Germany, they are usually between 5-10 more expensive than Herpa.

          Thanks guys. Guess I'll have to import my SJs. Can anyone recomend me any online store where I can order them (and of course deliver the models in Brazil.) ?
