Looking For A 737 Model

Wed Nov 26, 2003 9:20 am

i'm looking for a plastic 737-200/300/500 model that i can put together. i originally wanted to get one of those demo aircraft on a wand but can't find it anywhere so i have decided to make one. i'd like for it to be between 8 and 12 inches long. can anyone point me in the right direction?

-200 would be airfix

-300 or -400 (500 will be the result of surgery) would be Minicraft, much better kit IMHO

both are 1:144, so it will be around 9" wingsapn and 9"-11" long I think
When in doubt, one B pump off

Nothing easier than this: Get the new Revell 737-800 kit, it is the best 737 kit currently available IMO. Great decals, great fit, great price!

This Revell kit comes with the Sobelair decals as well, yes the one with the winglets. Revell has another 737-800 kit but without winglets, that one comes with KLM markings. Both are at 1/144 scale.
Yes, Airfix has a 737-200 at 1/144, the old release comes with Lufthansa decals but the newer release comes with BA and Air France decals. You can convert it to a 737-100 just by removing two windows in front of the wing and two wondows behind the wing. I made a People Express 737-100 by doing this, yes that one is the resulf of surgery as well (I'm not a surgeon but I can do it  Smile).
Minicraft has a 737-300 and 400 also a 1/144, the 300 kit comes with Continental decals and the 400 kit comes with US Airways decals. Masterkit also had a 737-300 at 1/144, it used to come with United decals, I made that one ten years ago, I still have it.
Hasegawa has a 737-400 at 1/200, it comes with the Virgin Express decals. I have it also. The Hasegawa kit has a bottom and a top fuselage half instead of a left and right half like on most kits.
