The history of the "Europa Jet", as the Boeing 727 was called by Lufthansa, began as early as 1964 with the delivery of the original short version of the three-jet aircraft. In 1971, 50 years ago, the first stretched 727-200 was delivered with the "Karlsruhe". No less than 33 examples of this striking aviation classic were to follow and be used reliably on the European routes until 1993.
Herpa of Germany started business as a model train manufacturer in 1949, followed by diecast automobiles in 1978, and ultimately 1:500 scale diecast aircraft 1987. Herpa's attention to detail and tampo printing systems led the industry in high quality diecast model aircraft markings, superceding other manufacturers that used decals.
Herpa began producing the highest quality airliner 1:200 scale models, exclusively for Lufthansa, the Lufthansa Model-Edition, moulded in plastic in 1988. Years later they expanded their 1:200 aircraft products to other airlines and new aircraft types, smaller types moulded in diecast metal, as well as an entire military aircraft line. Herpa's attention to detail and tampo printing systems lead the industry in high quality diecast plastic and metal models.
