    Out of the Box Models 1/72 Boeing 737-100 (Crowdfunding)

    The Heller kit is a 320B, which has a different wing to the original non-fan powered 320 and 420. Dave

    Any 1:72 Britannia decals?

    Just come across some other future decals. https://tinyurl.com/britdecals Dave
  5. Another potential release according to another forum. http://www.pas-decals.ru/forum/novosti/1078-novinki-vostochnyj-ekspress?start=351 A 500 series would have been more popular with me, but who knows judging by the way they are doing most of the DC-9 family. Dave

    Thanks for the good wishes everyone. My mother appears to be responding well to the medication -seems as if it was a gallbladder infection, but has been very hard to nail down precisely. I hope to be able to resume the modelling very soon. Dave

    Hasegawa 1/200 Boeing 737-200

    Sadly, I have not been able to get these finished in time, for reasons that I have explained in my Monarch Zvezda build. It is mostly the decalling that remains to be done, but I hope that they will appear in RFI shortly. Dave

    Well, just over a week ago, I was looking on course to get this finished. The fuselage was painted except for minor details and ready for decalling. Engines completed and ready for fitting. I had kept things clear for 9 days. Then, last weekend, my elderly mother was taken ill and admitted to hospital. After spending most of the week there, she was finally released to come home, where I have been looking after her since. All of this has meant that I had no time to do anything on my GB builds. I can't tell you how disappointed I am to fail to complete on time, but some things are more important. Anyway, I shall do my best to get them finished now and post them in the RFI section. Dave

    Boeing 737 STGB chat

    I'm thoroughly enjoying this GB and sharing my own modest efforts on here. I try and catch up with everyones builds most days, and admire all that is done. This inspires me to try and improve my own building, and of course the friendly and helpful comments don't go amiss either! Most of all, I'm just happy to be doing a bit of modelling. Dave

    Got the wings on, and with only a minimal amount of filler required as the fit was very good. Now had a coat of primer applied all over, and it doesn't look like any remedial work required, so a bit of colour coming very soon (all being well). The more observant (ok -everybody then) might notice that I haven't fitted the winglets yet. I'm rather cack-handed and they looked prime candidates for me to knock off, so I'll mask and paint the fuselage before finishing the wings. Well, that's the current plan! Dave

    Hasegawa 1/200 Boeing 737-200

    A little bit of progress to report, namely the DA one has had a coat of white primer applied all over and is now waiting for the light grey lower half and wings. The GB one is now fully ready for priming -but not really worthy of a photo at this point. Dave

    Hasegawa 1/200 Boeing 737-200

    Thanks Ray, yes they are a nice untaxing build that are fairly relaxing between doing things on other kits. The only slightly stressful bit was fitting the cockpit glazing, which was a bit fiddly. It's funny, but I don't remember having that problem with my previous build of the same kit 35 years ago. Perhaps age is catching up with me....and their moulds! Dave

    You have been busy, it's looking very smart. Really like how your decals are coming on -I'm looking forward to seeing how they end up. Dave

    Thanks Ray and armored76, yes it is going together very well with excellent fitting parts. It's taken me a couple of sessions to fit the clear landing light covers in the wing roots -only because they are so small though, and I kept dropping them! Once fitted, they are fine. The wing structure should be joined to the fuselage tonight, ready for the start of painting on the weekend. Dave

    Cheers Chris, yes it's a shame that Hasegawa didn't do more in 1/144. I've got a pair of their YS-11's and an Emb170, and they are very nice. One can always hope that they might be tempted to do a Mitsubishi RJ in the future (if it ever enters service!). Dave
