Hasegawa 1/200 737-200 was created by Huey
Hi all

Here is my most recent build, a 1/200 Air NZ 737-200. I was actually after a 1/144 scale 737 but this is all I could find at the time, which only cost a couple of dollars. Then two weeks later I found a 1/144 scale 737 so thought I'd make this as a practice one.

The previous owner had melted some of the fuselage when installing the weight in the nose. It was salvageable but required some filling and sanding.

I love watching these sorts of builds. Here’s a little lump of plastic that goes together with glue and paint which then suddenly turns into an airliner and you’re left going “LOOK AT THAT”!!

I have to agree with Bishop, Will you look at that! I have seen a model brought back from "Glue Bomb-itis" but you went above and beyond and now have a winner there.

Brilliant finish mate. Looking forward to seeing your 1/144 come together. I've got a 787 to build so will be looking for some tips. There's something about the 737-200 shape that just looks right.

Thanks, yeah I love the 737-200 shape, I'll be starting the 1/144 one this week, and I've also got a 1/72 FokkerF27 to build in Air NZ livery too.

Sorry, more questions....I’ve got some of those decals too. How were they to work with? I’m guessing you had to coat them with something before use?
Always looking for useful information to file away for when I finally get around to my one!
Cheers

No worries, they were really good, this set was nice and thin. I used Markfit decal softener and Markfit strong for the tight curves. I would only apply the mark fit strong once the decal is in place, because I found it sets really fast if you apply it to the model first. I had to cut some of the spare decals to fit around the nose and tail. I didnt use the anti glare shield tho because I couldn't get it to fit ( it may have needed to be cut down) so I used the one from the kit.

Cheers

This is how it looked before I tidied up the nose



I also applied several gloss coats prior to the decal application and after the decals were applied. But I didnt need to apply any gloss to the decals prior to application. It was only to seal them to the model.
