Phew! I made it to Germany! Now this would have been up earlier in the day, but no sooner had I gotten to the toy fair than it turned out that their internet was being funny - and then my laptop battery died! And of course, I need an adaptor to plug the computer in here. I've got one - but I'd left it in my luggage in the Left Luggage at the station!

Double phew! Anyways, my very first port of call was Herpa, where Herpa Wings' Thomas Borgmann was kind enough to give me the lowdown on the 2010 Herpa Wings range - and let me photo some of the prototype castings for the new models!!! These incldue the 747-8 in both cargo and passenger versions, in two scales - 1/500 AND 1/200. Plus a C-17 Globemaster III, a Northrop B-21 in 1/200 and a Soviet Space Shuttle.

Thomas also told us that things are going much better with Herpa now - they expect to be getting deliveries out to shops quicker, and will be making the planes in more limited quantities, so they're going to be even rarer.
