Never bought a 1:500 scale before and as it was Herpa,was expecting plastic wings,tail fin etc.
Well none of that,actually this piece ozzes quality!!!
The mould is spot on for looks,the colours are great and the Korean Choose livery is vibrant and really looks 4k at ya! So much better than the what the Phoenix 1:400 scale one looked like and too my knowledge only other model out there that bare this livery at 1:400 scale and 1:200 scale,JCW! JCWings have done both A380s of the choose livery and Phoenix only the 1:400 scale.
I was hoping for JCWings to do the Korean livery but seem not have done one,only the London one and that was excellent ,shame for the nose shape though, they get it wrong at 1:400 scale but right at 1:200 scale?? ODD that is!!
Well this model is so good i think this will be my model of 2021 so far unless before 2022 i get something better! All have my models have been good this year and top 3 standard its hard to call etc,but this one has an edge too it!
Herpa are good models,i have 2 others and was not disappointed but this one has really made me think of buying its brother even so i have the JCWings London one! Seriously this did blow me away how good it was as how rare the Korean Choose livery is to get hold of and thats why i went for a 1:500 scale as thats all there is right now and everything else has sold out!
One thing Herpa has got wrong but i am not bothered is they used silver paint instead of grey for the pattern on the tail fin! Personally i prefer the silver to grey as it looks classier but is indeed ,inaccurate on the real livery lol....
Overall a delightful surprise how good this model looks from Herpa and at this scale! For me its a 10 and most likely model of the year!!
Reminds me of WittyWings Quality A380s.
If your an Etihad model collector,then this is a must do !!!
