Originally published on:

Herpa DER MASS:STAB
is the Herpa car and truck model magazine: A great magazine for all those who love our car and truck models: read all about Herpa, our new releases, and other interesting articles about diorama building, the big originals, and lots of other related topics. A great source of information for all 1/87 scale fans.

Contents

Herpa issues this magazine six times a year. A large format magazine of high quality, each issue features a cover story, informational topics, dioramas, additional highlights, new releases, new in retail, service, news, lost-found, book recommendations, and Herpa Car Club Exclusives.

It is published in German, with occasional subtitles in English.

The pages are semi-gloss and the photographs of prototypes and models are of high quality.

Models are shown by themselves, and with prototypes for comparison. Each issue features one or more dioramas. Also included are exposes on a model and the subject.

conclusion

Like similar publications by model makers, e.g., Tamiya Model Magazine, Herpa published this magazine to showcase they products, advertise, and instruct and inspire modelers.

It is a high quality magazine. Even though I can not read German, as the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words!, the photographs speak for themselves. Recommend.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
