  1. Boeing 737-400 Thai. 1:144. Siam Scale Decals. This is the Daco/Skyline Boeing 737-400 in the previous livery of Thai Airways, which I think is one of the best ever. It looks lovely on all aircraft it has ever been applied to, it is a shame they replaced with a new livery. My Thai friends very kindly obtained the decals for me from Siam Scale, and I collected them on my last visit to Thailand. They look to be screen printed on moderate thickness carrier film, (rather like those in many Tamiya kits). The colours are spot on, and they go on to the model with no trou
  2. Boeing 737 Airfix 1:144 Braathens decals from Lima November I've developed a liking for taking an Airfix 737 out of the box and improving it. I must have done 5 or 6 now. Basic changes are: Lengthen the engines by 6mm Build up the pylons from the early skinny style to the more common fat type, Cut out the shallow main and nose wheelbays, and build new ones Cut away the cockpit and install a Daco Clear part from one of their 737 kits. Scratchbuilt a cockpit and out in a couple of N gauge seated figures for pilots. The basic mods mak
  3. Boeing 737 Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Command version of the veritable 737, pics thanks to Steve.
  4. Hi All These two are my first entry Hopefully they will be finished on time I will put them in one thread if that is OK Martin H
  5. Boeing 737-300 Norway Airlines. Daco/Skyline kit This will be my second entry, the superb Skyline kit paired up with a set of equally lovely LN Decals. Norway Airlines only lasted about 3 years from 1989 to 1991 operating 2 737-300's, only LN-NOS wore their complete livery. LN-NOR wore a hybrid Air Europe livery due to Norway Airlines having a subcontract with Air Europe, resulting in some interesting combinations of the 2 liveries. The kit ready to go; Th LN Decals sheet with 3 permutations of livery; I'll be doing LN-NOS in the f
  6. Well 2018 is well underway and I can re-start my kit building after a year re-building a 1:1 house! All my kits and model making stuff were packed away in a storage unit and yesterday, having just about finished our dedicated model/craft room, I used the 737 GB as an excuse to go and get some of my kits! Its the attic of our cottage fully insulated and re-lined with a fine bench space at the dormer window for natural light. just the floor to finish painting. Checked my list and Box 8 contained the selected Airfix 737 ..... I see a few others have picked this old faithf
  7. So this is going to be a first for me as I've never built an airliner model before. Therefore, when I saw the 737 GB I thought 'why not - let's give it a go'. As I haven't built an airliner before, I had nothing suitable in the stash so decided to treat myself to this: Even with the little amount of knowledge I have of airliner models, I can tell this kit is a belter! The parts are perfectly moulded with no flash, crisp fine panel lines and excellent decals make for a perfect baptism of fire. I've decided to go with the scheme on the box which is t
  8. Back in 1980, FatCawthone was an ExtremelySkinnyCawthorne and having just entered his teenage years was heading away for a school skiing trip to Foppolo in Northern Italy. Ah the panache of speeding across the slopes, the apres ski (or going on the piste as even then was how I'd prefer to see the piste!) and obviously being 13 and all that goes with it, copping off with as many 13 year old lasses as possible, taking advantage of the romance of the foreign field!!! But first was the flight. Master ESC had one flight under his belt at this time, a trip to Malta and back
  9. Boeing 737-130 Lufthansa. Airfix kit modified. My first entry will be the 737-130 in its Lufthansa delivery scheme. My understanding is that although delivered like this, the tailfin was repainted in the then new scheme of overall blue, with the yellow Lufthansa 'roundel' before it was put into service. The fuselage will need shortening, and the engines will require a fair bit of rework. The very early 731's had engine pods developed from the 727 nacelles and were much shorter than the later ones. I'm still looking for some good drawings of them if anyone can help! I'll a
  10. After some time away from BM International, I'm pleased to announce the arrival of Aerolineas Argentinas 737-200 from Buenos Aires : Airfix kit finished off with F-Dcal markings, Authentic Airliner windows and modified engines / wheel bays courtesy of plastic card, Milliput, sweat, tears and a few naughty words. For some unknown reason, I embarked on a mini group build involving three 737s in 2017, and let's just say that the trio nearly tipped my modelling career over the edge. (Just glad that one of them has made it over the line and that the troops involved in the cu
  11. How close are the Boeing line of fuselages? mainly the 707 and 737. I heard somewhere they are they same aside from length. Are windows and doors the same size? I have a strange idea to build a 737-800 using a 707 and 737-200 for parts. I know Welsh makes the P-8A which is an 800 series, but I'm looking at cost and windows to deal with. I could do the Revell kit, but thinking about 1/72. Any comments are welcome.
  12. Hi all, So this is a couple of firsts for me, I've never done an airliner before and I've never took part in a group build. So I'm going to keep this as simple as possible and do the kit straight out of the box. If anyone has some wisdom for a newbie please please share it with me!
  13. Good evening, After around 70 odd hours of work, I've finally completed my first built in over a decade. It was certainly a testing model kit, and despite some gross errors, this built has taught me so much about patience, taking time to ensure the intricacies and details are done as best as possible. I hope you enjoy the photos. I would sincerely like to thank TrojanThunder for the overwing decals. The default Revell ones were flimsy to say the least for this rookie. The Qantas 90's Livery was by DrawDecals and the details were off the default Revell decal
  14. Hi all. My most recent project has come to an end. Minicrafts little 737 kit is rather simple, but also a joy to build. Added antennas, and beacon lights. Decals are from Max decals. Paint from Xtracolor (Maersk blue) Humbrol ("Boeing grey", corroguard, nose) and Alclad for leading edges of wings and vertical/horizontonal stabilisors. Here goes: Cheers Robin
  15. Hello all, Here's my entry, I was drawn to it by the markings. It will be a nice challenge to spray the blue and red paint job. I'm somewhat scared of the kit decals though, there is an aftermarket for a -800 I may have to use if the kit decals fail. ee14423 by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr\ } Ryan
  16. Airfix 1:144 Boeing 737 TwoSix 'Air Europe' Decals. Airwaves Etched brass galleys Plus my own scratch building Ok, I went a bit mad here and didn't know when to stop. It started out as an attempt to improve the old 1960's Airfix kit of the Boeing 737-200, and just kept going and going as I had more ideas. I already posted what the improvements were in my second attempt but which got finished first. Basically it was; - Replace the cockpit glazing with the part provided in Daco's 737 kits. - Scratchbuild some interior detail for the cockpit, incl
  17. Revell 1:144 Boeing 737-800 Helios Airways This one fits into my collection of aircraft 'seen at Manchester', mainly because I love the colour scheme. Decals are from BOA, and it features the 737-800 of the ill fated Helios airline. They suffered a dreadful accident with one of their 737-300 series machines, and unfortunately they are no more. The kit was an early edition of Revells 737 in the Hapag Lloyd boxing without the winglets, which was just as well because this aircraft didn't have them. I hope you like, it is a belter of a livery! 'With somet
  18. Here at last is the third part of my 737NG conversion trilogy, lagging a long way behind the 736 and 739 which I finished last year. It is, of course, a cut down Revell kit fitted with the wonderful BraZ engines. As with the 736 and 739 I shortened the undercarriage legs to improve the sit. Paint is Halfords Appliance White and Racking Grey with Xtracolor X324 for the orange bits. Natural metal is done with various Tamiya and Revell metallics. Decals are a mixture - titles and registrations from Scaleliners, fin titles from a TwoSix A319/320 sheet (I dislike overall fin decals whi
  19. I built this on and off for about a year, with extensive pauses because of unforeseen circumstances and health issues. Eventually got it done though, and then found out about a local modeling exhibition and entered it. You can see the build thread here, although most of the decaling process is not very well covered. I managed to put the left side windows onto the right and vice versa, which led to some pretty extreme moving around and cutting out of windows to save the build. A few of decals, especially parts of the thin red cheatline, refused to stay put, which warranted the use of diluted PV

  22. Hell fellow modellers. I have finally completed my Norwegian Air Shuttle fleet. A project that has lasted me far too long. The first model being the Revell 737-800, LN-NOL, was finished back in November 2012. The -300 was completed back in January 2014. Now, two years later, the Dreamliner is complete. My target back in the days, was to model one of each plane type in the 2012 fleet. The -300 has now been withdrawn from service. The Dreamliner has switched registration, so its now on norwegian registration; LN-LNA, and accordingly, the 737-800 has changed from LN-NOL to EI-FHC. The N
  23. It's been a while since I've built Revell's 1/144 737-800 and I fancied a 'quick build' after the nightmare of Revells 1/48 F-5F This one has been built almost oob, the only change being replacing the kit engine fans with home-made decals on plasticard. The main decals were from Gio (the Nok Air scheme) and Authentic Airliners (fuselage windows). The model was hand painted using Model Color acrylic for the orange, Tamiya X2 acrylic for the white, Humbrol 85 acrylic black, and Xtracolour enamel greys for the wings. I also painted the yellow beak rather than the Gio decal to avoid inevitable d
  24. Hello guys. That´s my last for 2015, a 737-800w in a special Gol scheme, celebrating 10 years of the airline. Kit Revell, almost out of the box, except the winglets. Decal Gio Decals.
  25. 1:144 Boeing 737-200 Busy Bee. Lima November decals. I saw this humourously liveried Boeing 737-200C parked on the ramp at Oslo Fornebu airport back in 1986, and thought 'I would like to make a model of that', so 30 years on, I have! I started with the old Airfix kit of 1969, and decided to see what improvements to could be made to it. These came down to: - Replace the cockpit glazing with the part provided in Daco's 737 kits. - Scratchbuild some interior detail for the cockpit - Open up the main and nosewheel bays, which are just shallow opening on the ki
