Hey everyone, I'm pleased to announce a new line of original resin model kits in 1/72 scale: the B737-200Adv and 737-300. These should be ready for purchase by late January 2020. More model release announcements will follow shortly after. We will strive to produce affordable, extremely accurate, and finely detailed resin model kits across multiple scales, which will appeal to modellers of all skill levels. In order to help generate some interest in these upcoming kits, we are going to have some giveaways including full kits - so check out our website and Facebook page for details on that: https://www.aeromodl.com/ https://www.facebook.com/AeroModl-104268851068144/. This endeavor started last year when I decided to create a 1/100 737-200 model for my own amusement. You can follow the design and build of that model here. Eventually the model got the attention of a heavyweight in the diecast realm who offered to help produce them as finished display models in 1/100 and even 1/50. After the deal evaporated, I turned to remaking the model far more intensively and accurately than I had previously had, with the idea to offer them as resin kits. Additionally, 737-300/400/500 specific parts were modeled as well. Some features of the model include: -Solid resin fuselage, tail, stabilizer and wings. -Clear forward fuselage section, landing light and wingtip light lenses -Crisp, deep panel lines which will be able to survive a moderate sanding. -Multiple panel line widths of between 0.003"(0.075mm) and 0.013"(0.33 mm) which will help keep surface details in scale. -A true to CAD master pattern which will create exquisite tooling for the model castings. -Exceptionally well fitting parts so little glue will be required. -A genuine ALPS printed orginal decal artwork. -Detailed landing gear and tires(in work) -Recessed detail in the landing gear wheel wells(in work) -Detailed cockpit(in work) The following images are renderings of the CAD model, and not actual photos. But they should give a good idea of what to expect from the kits. While the models are still in the design and testing stage, we are confident stating that both the 737-200 and 737-300 1/72 kits will be available for purchase very early in 2020. Small scale testing of the master pattern for detail and part fitting have been extremely encouraging with "true to CAD" results. Details as fine as 0.06mm (0.002") have been nicely reproduced. Following these releases, we plan on bringing you a full line of Original and Classic series 737s(-100 thru -500) in the scale of 1/200. If there is enough interest, we can create a line of 1/144 737's but I think Authentic Airliners and Daco have them well covered. The next major airframe will likely be the 707/720/KC-135 series, which will also be offered in 1/72 and 1/200. I'll be updating this thread up until the release, so check back for news!
