      Wow, looks good! I wonder why they did a 319 instead of a 320, seems it's easier to cut down than stretch....

      This looks nice!

      Any news on their 738? I seem to recall that they were working on one but hadn't heard anything for a long while.

      Thanks!

      Some answers from her Facebook Site:

      - They will make an A320 and A321 also.

      Question about the 738:
      - "We are developing these models together"

      - Not yet decide which Decals the Kit will have.

      If they decide to downsize to a -318, I hope they keep a close eye on the WBF. Unlike that ghastly Eastern Express morph.

      I'd be very surprised to see them do an A318. A 320 and/or a 321, yes.

      Anybody know if BPK is still indeed planning to release their 1:72 A319, 737-800, and CRJ-700? Seems like they've disappeared. No updates on new kits for a while on their Facebook page.

      Iíve had no reply to the last two or three emails Iíve sent to the guy at BPK. I provided them all the technical data for the 737s, and he usually replies. I have no idea what that means.

      Well, that's not encouraging. It seems like they were getting pretty close to finishing up the 737-800 kit a while back, but I think they said they were going to completely re-do it or something. Even so, you'd think there would be some WIP shots of the kit coming together again by now.
