    Hello Again
    Would you consider doing a Boeing 727?
    I love Braniff International and Western Airlines and flew on both in my youth.

    still clouds and no sun - typical english weather;-)

    Hello!

    Thanks for Your posts!
    Being honest my interests are the airliners which models are not available anymore or never were made...
    (for example: DC-8, Tristar, Tu-154, Tu-134, Yak-40, BAE-146...)
    For me it is still a BIG surprise that nobody, except GELI haven't issued a B-737 model.

    If it is up to B-727:
    - There is a B-727 model from Holland (Leon Shuijt)
    - Excellent model of B-727 is made by Jesus -
    our hobby forum mate.
    - There was a very good model in FedEx colours
    made in USA
    - Later on I would like 'to upgrade' my B-737 to
    B-727, because I can use a fuselage but I need a time and a good drawings...

    Best regards!

    hmmm the BAE-146 would make a good kit. It was a very different type of plane from the norm. The high mounted wing, the split tail-end airbrakes. And the main gear legs, the way they folded into the belly i thought were great. reminds me of the gear on the Jaguar. Its like the way a bird tucks it's feet in. Add to that the STOL ability, and the fact that it was a military bird, and the Queens own transport too. And this is an airplane with quite a lot of character

    Hello!

    BAE146 - good choice, but I would rather go for Tu-154 - a 'clasic' airliner with a beautifull silhouette from every angle:cool:...

    By the way, now I am fitting a vertical stabiliser

    Excellent model!:thumb:

    Being honest, last month I was so desperate that I bought B-737-400 in 1:144 to be able to get some details for the bottom side of the wings and the main gear bays position. Hope soon I gonna get it done!

    This jet is so verry nice!
    MY dad worked for Wien Air Alaska for 23 years and he was around 737-100 and 200s all the time.On these ALASKA modifyed 737s there was a splash guard on the nose to keep water and rocks from hitting the engines.
    I have started my first scrach build of a WW2 German FW-190 and I am also workingon a MASSIVE Tupolev TU-144 SST as asoon as I get a decent digital camera I will post some photos

    300/200

    Hello!

    There shouldn't be much problem to 'downgrade' 300 to 200 version;-)
    Basicly the engies and wings.

    Now I am fitting the part which is between a wing and a fuselage...

    Best regards
