          Too bad for them, they had opportunity to improve, or even RE-SHAPE !!! instead they kept thinking as if they were still back in the 70s when almost nobody competed with them. Let them pay for their (numerous) mistakes ...

              I actually liked schabak. I inherited my brothers huge collection of schabak planes when I was 4 or 5, and that got me into collecting in the first place. 1:600 was the perfect size to start a collection I think, but I have to say they age horribly. Most of mine are from the 80s and early 90s, and the paint has faded or pealed off of most of a number of them.

              But to their credit, they had the biggest selection I've ever seen in any model company.

                I actually like the Schabak models. I still have a ton of the 1:600, probably around 200-300. I liked how relatively inexpensive they were & the huge variety they had, even though there were a few things I wish they would've made models of (ERJ-145, E-170, NW Airlink RJ-85, AirTran, jetBlue, Frontier A-319, America West new colors, etc).

                    Probably around the size of Herpa's 1:1000 A380 model .

                        Nothing true to scale, just enlarged.

                          They made 1:600 scale CRJ-200s. Probably aren't more than an inch & a half long. They made a Brasilia model, too. Never thought I'd see a model that small.
