Revell 1/144 Boeing 737-838

Good afternoon,

First post in a very long while.

After around 70 odd hours of work, I've finally completed my first built in over a decade. Revel's infamous 1/144 Boeing 737-800. The subject is an aircraft of significance, Qantas' Boeing 737-838 VH-VYL "Wangaratta" and the perfect subject to relearn kit building once more.

It was certainly a testing model kit, and despite some errors, this built has taught me so much about patience, taking time to ensure the intricacies and details are done as best as possible. It has taught me a lot, and looking at putting in place the improvements for my next build.

I hope you enjoy the photos. The Qantas 90's Livery was by DrawDecals and the details were off the default Revell decal sheet.



Feel free to let me know what you guys think and I look forward to my next built.

Yup, it does resemble a Boeing 737! Whew!







I went with the default winglets and engines.*One of the more testing parts was reprofiling the winglets to reflect the correct chord and height, followed by assembly, and hand painting the winglet, gold stripe and leading edge.*







Thank you and kind regards,
Charlie

Fantastic work my friend. Beautiful work and great job on detailing the model. Better than I could have done that's for sure.

Thanks for sharing
