Boeing 737 STGB chat

Recommended Posts

Having found a DACO kit in the loft this morning count me in. Now all I have to do is get another of the splendid Western Pacific deal sheets for it, possibly one of the "Sams Town" ones.

Decided on a scheme for mine... Thunderbird Decals( ex Whiskey Jack) for Canadian carrier Nordair.

If I can get a kit then I may throw my hand into a 1/144 build. As long as I can do this

Contrails and Hawkeye Models Australia both do conversions for that :D

I am building one on 1/72 at the moment :D

Is that the Welsh Models one? Must be some size :yikes:

Its not the conversion thats the problem its actually getting a kit as the Revell 737-800 seems to not be in production at the moment. Although I may find it at my LMS so will pop down there on Saturday.

I'm up for this one. Have several 737 projects, Air Europe, Britania & Orion Airways at the top of the list.

Does that make me no 26......

Ta,

Yep, a little bigger than a 1/144 A340

I know what you mean about availability, there was a trader at a local model show that had about 1/2 doz of them. I got one quick when I first saw them, the rest were gone by the afternoon.

Wow that looks nice, not sure if my funds could stretch to one of those. Although by the time I get a kit and the AM for it it may not be far off. Hmmm have some time before this will start so maybe I can save for one.

I am most definitely in. Don't have time to read through the thread as it's midnight and I have a flight in twelve hours, but when is this happening? I'll participate either with one of the many EE 737s or perhaps try my hand at a Revell conversion...

Alexander, this won't happen until at least next year as the GB calendar is sorted for this year, may not even be next year as the single type GB slots were taken bar one. I have sent Enzo (GB Moderator and all round nice guy) a message inquiring about if we will slip into the last slot for next year.

I see. Well one of the few good things about living in Russia [citation needed] is that 737s in 1:144 are never hard to come by. I'll be eagerly awaiting the time when this goes forward!

Oh, go on then. Count me as a vote. It'll help me focus on getting something out of the stash and in to the display cabinet.

This is way past the threshold for an STGB now, so it will be going into consideration for 2018. :thumbsup:
