Not space-related but NASA-related so I thought it was appropriate to mention this 1:200 model from Herpa: NASA Northrop Grumman RQ-4 Global Hawk
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are becoming increasingly popular worldwide. Among the largest representatives is the RQ-4 Global Hawk, not only operated by the Air Forces of the USA and Germany, but also used by the space agency NASA for meteorological research.

I like Chris, it would be a nice addition to my collection as being NASA related.

Thanks for posting this one. It looks nice and worthy of a build.

By the way, I would like to have you in my collection Chris. I could put you on a shelf and you could spew out release dates for new stuff whenever I walk by.

Don't worry Chris, I will definitely find some shelf space to put you on. I hope you do not drink to much beer because then you will be an expensive exhibit in my collection.

Apart from that, I think that you do a fantastic job in researching space models, keep it up.

Beer? Isn't there something more tastefully delightful in Malta? (oh, and I weigh 200 pounds, FYI for your shelf structure!).

Both models, the NASA one and the USAF Beale AFB models, are available for pre-order from the Flying Mule, $58-$67 with a planned June release.

NASA's Global Hawk is a YRQ-4A, which is a smaller aircraft than the operational RQ-4B. The specs of the two Herpa models show the same wingspan, 7.75", which translates to the 131' span of the RQ-4B.
  • NASA YRQ-4A
    Wingspan: 116.2'
    Length: 44.4'

  • RQ-4B
    Wingspan: 130.9'
    Length: 47.6'
The two aircraft have the same basic configuration, so if the size difference doesn't bother you, it will still look like a Global Hawk.

Herpa's website mentions the model as available. I guess it still has to be distributed.

Got mine today (for once it was cheaper in Switzerland than ordering from the US). Nice model. Even at 1:200 it is still small- I guess that's why they call them miniature.

It's my first model at 1:200 from Herpa. On the back of the model box it says "limited edition". I haven't seen (or recall) this on 1:400 or 1:500 models from Herpa.
