About Luftwaffe Dassault-Breguet / Dornier Alpha Jet A - Erprobungsstelle 61 (1:72)
40 years ago, the first of over 500 produced Alpha Jets, co-developed by Dassault in France and Dornier in Germany were delivered to both air forces. The German variant, the Alpha Jet A ("Appui" = support) differed in not being intended for training, but for the role as a light close-support fighter. The first production aircraft was delivered to the evaluation unit 61 in Manching, Bavaria, before a total of four fighter-bomber wings were equipped.

About Herpa 1:72
By working closely with manufacturers in the auto, aviation and transportation industries, Herpa Miniaturmodelle GmbH manufactures highly detailed, quality cars, trucks and airplane miniatures. Producing both diecast metal and plastic models, Herpa releases a wide variety of pre-constructed models, as well as many model kits. Herpa Wings are die-cast model airplanes trademarked under Herpa of Germany. The collection includes 250 airlines under 17 different aircraft manufacturers in over 1,200 versions. The mainstay of Herpa Wings is in the 1:500 scale, while model airliners are also produced in the 1:400, 1:200, 1:1000, and 1:160 scales. Herpa Wings model airliners may also be used in conjunction with Herpa's SCENIX series, which includes model diorama airports and airport accessories. In 1990, the model airplanes sported authentic miniaturizations of the engines and rolling landing gear from the various manufacturers. By 1992, Herpa Wings is established. The first 1/500 plane miniatures are presented to the public at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, and several airlines place orders for planes in their respective liveries. A licensing contract with aircraft manufacturer Boeing was signed in 1995. In 1996, Herpa Wings offered propeller driven planes for the first time in the 1/500 scale with the release of an ATR-72 model. Also, Herpa Wings produced for Condor the replica of their anniversary plane, the "Rizzi Bird", which is still one of the most difficult models in the Herpa Wings range. The first set of airport accessories was also produced. In 1997, issue 1 of the magazine for collectors of airplane models, WingsWorld, was released in June. A new range of airplane replicas in the 1/200 scale are released. In 1999, the Herpa Wings Club and the first models of airport buildings in the 1/500 scale are produced. Herpa also celebrated its 50th anniversary as a collectables manufacturer in 1999. In 2018 Herpa finally introduced a line of 1:72 military aircraft models, as well. Throughout the years, Herpa’s commitment to utilizing the latest technology to produce high quality, highly detailed models, has earned them a top spot among model collectors.
