I'm looking for a model of an Alaska Airlines MD80 in 1/144th scale, preferable made by MiniCraft...or any other make. I'm not looking for the wooster kind...I want to put it together. Anybody know how I could obtain one of these, or perhaps a company that deals in airline decals and fuselages?

There is a scale model of an MD-80 at 1/144. I would suggest you get that model from Minicraft which you are likely to find at your local hobby store (even in Belgium I found Minicraft models coming from the US!) but you won't directly get the Alaska decals. That models comes with either the TWA or AA decals. If you want the Alaska decals, ask your local hobby store where you can get a full list of airline decals, he or she must know where to call.
I recently made an AA MD-80 at 1/200. It looks real neat.

If you want to make an Alaskan MD-80 (I thought of that too), search for aftermarket decal makers such as Liveries Unlimited to see if they carry them. An alternative would be to get the Minicraft Alaskan Airines 737-400 and use its decal on the Mincraft MD-80. You might have to make some modifications though. Good luck! BTW, I got an AA MD-80 from Minicraft and I recommend it highly
