      Hi all after doing some searches ready todo decals for the new 737-8 max i have seen that some diffrents in the wingtips. Not sure if this has been picked up before.

      Not sure what you mean by change.

      From the outset the design of the MAX winglets have been different (not the scimitar). Is that what you mean? And yes a lot of us knew this, but some donít, so it is good of you to point this out.

      Keep em separated!

      Tui mad,

      You are confusing the split-scimitar winglet (which is a retrofit item for the 737NG models) for the Advanced Technology Winglet of the MAX models.

      See here: http://www.b737.org.uk/winglets.htm
