Over the weekend, in one of the windows of my nearest hobby shop I saw some brand-new and very nice Diecast models of Vipers in 1/200 (!) from Herpa Miniaturmodelle, Germany. Each model has a display with a printed runway section. But the price is expensive: 28 to 29 Euro!!!

For details please check: http://www.herpa.de/collect/(S(ch3z0q45a4u0hm45athyn445))/hitlist.aspx?lang=en-GB&query=F-16&express=1&thumb=1

Here are the pictures (Please note that the models are looking much better as in these shots from the manufacturer):

Well that's what I mean. You can only get so good at such a small scale. The panel lines are atrocious if it was a plastic kit. But for diecast, it looks aeeight.

Nice, I have seen and it is a really nice model. I must say that this is one of the best models. You truly get what you did for this model. These are the rarer ones.I do find it quite interesting though that these pieces show up.
