  1. My first completed airliners in 2021. I started them somewhere last year and worked on them on and off between other projects. The main problem was to get decals for them as Heller airliners come in the odd scale of 1/125 and their 737 kit is long out of production. I found some nice liveries on f-dcal,which even arrived in an acceptable time. I have now 3 of Heller's Boeing 737,the first one was built in Lufthansa colors,mostly airbrushed and completed with decals from my spares box. Its a pity that Heller never reissued this kit as they did with most of their other a
  2. Another quick and easy build in between bigger projects was this Hasegawa 737. Despite their older airliners,Hasegawa went here a slightly different way. The fuselage halves are split horizontaly and there are no windows and no detail on the fuselage as well. Here they offer also a wheels up otion,wich I find nice. All details are on the excellent decal sheet,thats when this model comes to life. Luckily Hasegawa went back to the roots with their newer airliner kits,wich have nice recessed panellines and are also more detailed. The 737-400 and also th
  3. Canada and Scotland have strong historic connections and air links between the two countries have existed for almost as long as transatlantic flying itself. In May 2015 Westjet began seasonal flights between Halifax and Glasgow which was their first UK destination. The inaugural flight was by C-GQWJ, an ETOPS 737-7CT, which acquired a unique tartan fin for the occasion. She carried the tartan for about six months before reverting to the standard livery. The Zvezda kit was a straightforward and enjoyable build and I was aware of its few minor issues from my previous build of the 738
  4. I present the Zvezda Boeing 737-800 in Malev livery circa 2006. The model is OOB apart from some Daco PE and one or two small details. It was straightforward although there were a few minor annoyances such as finding one of the side struts for the main undercarriage broken when I opened the box. I somehow missed a couple of nasty sink marks on the rudder until the dark blue showed them up, a mistake I won’t make twice. That said, the positives hugely outweigh any negatives. It has the correct window line, accurate engines and accurate winglets with the options of plain
  5. Here is my completed Zvezda 737-8 Max in WestJet livery. I chose this scheme as I had flown with them when I was positioning on an internal flight when I was Cabin Crew from Toronto to Halifax. The kit is OOB with the decals from DrawDecal. The kit itself is a great build, and fits together really well. I really like the extra details on the LEAP engines with the 2 part fan blades. I wish I had brought some window and cockpit decals from AA, but I had already applied these before I had found out about them as I am still quite new to the hobby again. The paints used were Halfords A
  6. Boeing 737 in uniform. 1:144 -TG Decals. The Boeing 737 in all its versions is the worlds best selling jet airliner, with over 10,000 having been produced since 1967 and production still continuing. A very small proportion of these can be found serving in a military role with various air forces around the the globe. New from TG Decals are two sets of decals covering the 'Classic' 737 -300, -400, -500, and a single 'New generation' -800, all in use with South American Air Forces. 44003 Boeing 737 in uniform. Part 1. The first #44003 covers on
  7. The first real 737-100 injection molded kit also comes from Eastern Express. Their quality improvement compared to their earlier kits is outstanding,although their kits are usually in short run quality but they are much more accurate and better to build than most of their older models. The 737-100 belongs already to the newer offerings,recessed panellines and fine details are there although still a bit rough in some spots but the overall quality is fine. The build itself is a bit tricky in some parts and filler is needed frequently,but careful preparation can be a great help.
  8. I received this kit for free from a very nice seller on a Swiss auction platform,who also got it together with a kit lot Its a very old Heller kit in the rather unusual scale of 1/125,which makes it unmatchable to the usual 1/144 airliners,except if one has some more Heller kits in that scale. The kit itself is very nice,pretty accurate in its overall appearance. Sadly it has become quite hard to find and Heller seems to have no plans in a re-issue like they did with their DC-10 and the supperb 1/72 Boeing 707. It was already part started and that not very pro
  9. Dates: 3 February to 6 May 2018 Hosts: feoffee2 and Romeo Alpha Yankee Hi I was wondering if anyone was interested in this. There are lots of liveries and could be interesting. Thanks
  10. Hello, I'm glad to join this group with a build I have too long postponed. I saw the real subject, one of the last -200 in passenger service, during a wonderful trip to Victoria Falls for my tenth wedding anniversary. I well remember the contrast of this beauty with a modern BA A320 parked nearby: shiny metal wings and lower fuselage, the loud hiss of the turbojets, something I hadn't seen for years in european airports. Back to my home I immediately started searching for a decal sheet and I found a nearly suitable one in the Classic Airlines range: a few mail exchanges with Nick Webb later I
  11. Hopefully got this photo sharing thing sorted, so I'd like to join with a Zvezda -800 kit finished with a set of Nazca's Monarch decals. Dave

  13. This model is my contribution to the current Boeing 737 STGB. Hapag-Lloyd Express aka HLX was a German low-cost airline which was established in 2002 and operated until 2007 when it became part of TUIfly. The airline used the slogan "Fliegen zum Taxipreis" (Fly for the cost of a taxi fare) and their aircraft were painted in an eye-catching livery inspired by the Yellow Cabs in New York. The kit is by DACO. Yellow paint is Humbrol 99 buffed up and coated with Klear and the light grey on the engines and lower fuselage is Xtracolor X371. Contrary to what most decal manu

  15. Welcome to the Boeing 737 Single Type Group Build for 2018. We the Moderators (feofee2 and Romeo Alpha Yankee) have come up with some basic rules for this next instalment of Airliner goodness. The following aircraft types will be allowed with no limits on scale: Any Boeing 737 in Commercial, Private, Government or Military use. Includes any airframe from the prototype to the latest Max versions What If schemes are allowed. Any modelling medium and manufacturer is allowed including resin, vacform, multimedia or scratch building if you are that way inclined.
  16. Once upon a time, well, in 2016 anyway, there was the Airliners III group build...... Despite never having built an airliner before, I decided this was going to be my first group build contribution. In a triumph of enthusiasm, naivety and recklessness, I entered late on with an Eastern Express Boeing 737-300. The group build archive documents my attempts to force the warped fuselage and wings into reasonable shapes, but it was inevitable that I would eventually run out of time. For the past year the model and I have had occasional interactions, with long periods of rest
  17. Hello everybody!!! It's just few day till Christmas and I finally got my Daco 737-300 1:144!! Great!! It's my first model ever!!! I'm quite scared how it will look like when finished I'm going to make it Jet2 plane, reg G-CELK Jet2 Edinburgh. And why Jet2 and why LK? I've first flown aircraft in Jan 2012, Manchester to Prague on Jet2 737-300, but I don't remember the reg. And LK is as I currently live and work @Edinburgh and even work at the airport! Now to the model. It's pretty nice. I've found only one small dent on underneath the wi
  18. Boeing 737-200 South African Airways 1:144 Airfix with modifications The third of my modified Airfix 737-200's. The mods are to cut away the cockpit area and replace it with the clear moulded part from a Daco/Skyline 737 kit, and correcting the engines from the 100 series to the 200 Advanced. This involves lengthening them and fattening the pylons. I also added a bit of cockpit detail and a pair of crew figures from N gauge railway passengers, and opened out the wheel bays to make them 3 dimensional. The Airfix kit is old but basically good, and benefits from these few mods. After all
  19. Hello all. It's great seeing the variety of subjects being covered, both in terms of time and geographical coverage. For my entry I'm going with this kit; Hasegawa's 1/200 B738 Yes I know, another 737, not the most original of builds. However, you may have noticed that there were very few decals on display in that picture, and that is because I'm not going for the box scheme. Instead I'm using Draw Decal's offering to build a plane in the colours of everyone's favourite South African low-cost carrier. It's educational too! Not sure when I'll be able to start, but hopefully sometime in t
  20. Aer Lingus Boeing 737 Authentic Airliners 1:144 This is the Authentic Airliners all resin kit, the most accurate Boeing 737 in any scale. They are pricey kits and I have long wamted to try one, and secured this one via e-Bay for a fair price. There are few parts, all beautifully cast and a small fret of photo etch to go with it. There were no instructions, which was not a problem for the main assembly, but left me wondering where a few of the etched parts were meant to go. This was an early release with a separate clear casting for the cockpit much like the Daco and Minicraft 737's h
  21. The old Airfix kit finished in the markings of Honduran airline 'SAHSA", which had such a poor safety record that someone dubbed the airline's name an acronym for 'Stay At Home, Stay Alive'. All of the kit's windows were filled and replaced with decals, the model was re-scribed, u/c doors replaced and Bra.Z resin engines substituted for the skinny kit ones. The swooshy scheme was masked and painted, decals were ALPS-printed.
  22. Here are some Airfix kits that get a frequent bashing in some forums. Well they may very well show their age but I found them interesting to build. Airfix' 747 is somewhat of a special case as many aspects of the kit are quite wrong compared to the original. I tried to fix some errors like the engines as good as possible and the landing gear.I replaced some parts of the landing gear with parts taken from a Revell 747-200 to get a more accurate shape like the maingear doors. I filled the gap in the engines with filler and sanded them smooth then primed them with Tamiya white primer.After dr
  23. This summer I took the family for a holiday in Stavanger, Norway, flying from Manchester with Norwegian. The aircraft waiting at the gate was LN-NOM 'Greta Garbo' so when Ruben of Lima November decals announced a sheet for this very aircraft I just had to get one. The kit is the Revell 737-800 with my own mods to extend the winglets and fix the undersides of the engines to get the correct shape. This particular aitcraft carries a satellite receiver on top of the fuelsege in front of the fin, and this was scratchbuilt from plasticard. After that it's an easy enough build. The Lima Novembe
