Looks promising! Can't wait to hear what the real thing looks like.

Is it just me or are the windscreen windows looking to small? Looks like the mistake done by revell in their A320 series.

It could be the painting : I checked the original photos on Facebook and it looks like the painting was rushed, especially on the windshield and the wheels.

Am I wrong or are there two different APU exhaust parts? And if so, why? Never remembered two different APU's on the real thing...

Looking at the photos, it appears that some incompetent person built this kit. The front windows seems smaller and even worse the way it was painted with a brush rather than applying decal. I'm not convinced about the engines and landing gear until I get the chance to compare it with AA kit.

Nothing to Compare. AA is AA.

I believe the very earliest NGs had a "classic" style APU exhaust. It's been years since I looked at that, but that seems to ring a bell. Kudos to Zvezda for catching that!

The latter versions of NGs have an air inlet over APU exhaust pipe for cooling the APU and it reduces noise by 12DB that's generated by the APU.

Is it not a bit premature to decide this kit is not comparable to AA's ?

It was probably somebody working from a test shot on a very tight deadline with limited resources available. As someone who's had to do the same (I had about 48 hours to go from raw kit arriving via FedEx to delivering a finished product for a manufacturer's display) I know that "perfection" and "completed by deadline imposed by manufacturer" are opposing concepts. I got the project done, but it was not my best work.

Let's reserve the harsh words about the builder, who was probably in a no-win situation. We'll all get our own chance soon enough to see what we can do with this kit.

48 hours?? I can't even build one in 48 months!! But really... How do you deal with drying/curing paint and glue?

In 1999 my tools were Testors enamels thinned with lacquer thinner, and gap-filling super glue. These days if I were given a similar commission I'd do it with Tamiya spray paint for big areas, acrylics (airbrushed and brushed as needed) for the rest, super glue, and a lot of prayer.

It looks so much accurate especially around the nose and clear cockpit. Maybe it was the way they painted the model which was deceiving our eyes or they fixed it overnight....lol. Hopefully they'll release more narrow body kits in the future.

I know that Zvezda has access to the 3D shapes from Boeing, so it ought to be accurate.

Hi Chris,

I am too! I would say....Not yet! I would have it in your hands first. Granted that the winglets on the Revell kit are an atrosity (IMHO), the rest is halfway decent. There may be some parts that are better? I will wait to hear your report....

All the best,

Dan

On a French forum, the 737-800 is announced available end March in Ukraine and Russia. Even if there is some slip, it is now just a matter of 1 or 2 weeks. Credit card ready !

No. There are major differences between the NG and the MAX airframes. It's not just a different APU exhaust.

Allegedly someone "from Zvezda" told an IPMS/Austria meeting recently that they were going to do a 737 MAX kit (not sure which version).

Announced at AMS for 19,95 (E.U. incl. VAT)
Think it's a reasonable price...👍
Pity only it's not one of ZVEZDA's an "ultimate" kit.
Love that series with all the additional parts
(open doors, implied interior etc.).

Just received my weekly Internet newsletter/catalog from Aviation Megastore. They list the Zvezda B737-800 as "Pending", with a "Provisional or estimated" price of Euro16.49, Euro19.95 with EU taxes. We all know that this is going to change!

I never buy anything via the Internet from Aviation Megastore, their postal rates are in outer space.

They wanted to charge me 25 Euros postage for a PE fret that was about 2x3" that would easily fit into a standard business envelope requiring one first class stamp. When I asked them about it, the rather rude reply I got (like 3 weeks later) was basically "too bad, so sad, that's what it is."

I haven't been back to their web site since.


I'm glad the kit is basic and doesn't have gimmicks like open doors and dropped flaps. Easy enough to do if that's what you want, but hard to 'close up' and make it look good.

Its hard to believe how many options one has doing a 737-800.
Ill wait till the end of the year and get mine from Hobbylink, good prices
and fast service.
I agree on the shipping cost from Aviation Megastore being hi but I have to give them credit for fast service.
I just received two 1/72 BroPlan Westwinds. 11 days to get to Houston.

This is a true winner kit.

My personal first priority for a airliner model is the clear windshield and cabin windows.
Yes it's a must.

Cannot understand why some makers made them solid.
If the windows are not clear, why bothering make one? Just buy the diecast finish models.
Same with resin fuselage kits.

My 2 cents.

Make what you like, like what you make

Very nice kit by the first looks of it. I'm happy it has a clean wing without flaps etc. but (forgive me being stingy) was hoping for a price more similar to the Superjet and Tu-134. Oh well, I'm still buying it.

Regarding the Megastore: the blunt reply Jennings received doesn't surprise me at all (sadly) but I can tell you they are nicer in person. Really worth a visit if you visit Schiphol/Amsterdam.

Because they do. When you start your model manufacturing company, you can make your models any way you want to. That's the bottom line.

Thank you for your wisdom. I have just put all my Authentic Airliners resin kits, along with every other kit I have with solid windows, into the garbage can. I don't know how I did not see the light before now. I was a fool for wanting my models to have detailed window decals that looked better for the scale of the model than clear windows.

Bill, I feel you should send me those models instead of throwing them away. I don't mind still being in the dark.

Keep em separated!

To each his own I guess. I personally like decals because I could never get open windows to look right and if I had to drill and shape my own, they always looked off: a little high, a little low, wrong shape, etc. If you can get them to look exactly like the rest of the windows, my hat's off to you.

I remember way back when, my delight at finding Clint Groves and all the airliner windows he had. My models looked pretty sad until then...

Looking forward to seeing this kit with my own eyes. The reports look promising; I won't pay too much attention to the finished model on the packaging - looks decent enough for the average consumer! Too bad for me in Canada, the Zvezda supply chain is weak. Frustrating that I have to go overseas to get the kits. At least I won't need to buy anymore aftermarket bits to make the model look proper.

You could undoubtedly get them cheaper from overseas, since you don't have to pay GST (etc). I don't think I've ever purchased a Zvezda kit from the US.

Something has changed recently. I've been dealing with the Aviation Megastore on and off for decades and when I ordered some decals from them earlier in the year postage to the UK was a few Euros. When I went to place an order for some more decals earlier this week they wanted 11.45 EUR to ship to a "UPS Access Point" or 15.45 EUR to ship to my home address. Needless to say the order wasn't placed and I'll get my decals elsewhere in future.

Here we go, out in the open, Ebay...$48.90 ouch...



Hannants have it in "Future Releases" priced at 20.99 which isn't too bad. I just hope the pound doesn't fall any more before they fix the final price!

That's great about the hot sections! Excellent attention to detail.

I'm still scratching my head over the two different aft fuselage/APU exhaust parts. The NG has only ever had one configuration in that area.

My theory, and that is all it is, they did it to frustrate you!

Or, they needed spruce space for the MAX tailcone and filled it with "filler" in the meantime.

Or, I am drunk and had another brilliant idea!

You should see what I come up with in my better moments.

Keep em separated!
