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 faithfull but not many options for a 737-200. Handy label printed from my kit list on side of the box! The boxing is marked Special Edition - really?? Lets get that box open!! It seems to be a popular kit for the GB so I wont bother with more that the obligatory sprue/box shot I have quite a few decals for the first generation 737 but have selected what I think is a really cool and colourful scheme from the 70's/80's - Cruzeiro with decals courtesy of FCM. Decals not quite so handily located in the storage unit but this is what they look like........ image linked from Scalemates which I hope is OK The Airfix kit is OK and I will build it pretty much OOB , maybe rescribe the fuselage and few little tweaks as it looks much like it should, apart from the slightly off nose. I have 2 other Airfix 737's in long-time production but like all of us thes have stalled and I want to use this GB as the inspiration to get them finished - both probably more that 25% completed. The only Airfix 737 I did finish is shown below - from 20 years ago when I had few modelling tools and used a brush freehand for most of the painting! Looking forward to taking part! John
