Boeing 737 – 400, Czechoslovak airlines, OK – WGG, Skyline Models, 1/144
Czechoslovak Airlines. After the split of Czechoslovakia, Czech Airlines was established with a base at Václav Havel Airport in Prague. In 1991, Czechoslovak Airlines began to renew its fleet. New Boeing 737-400 were put into operation. The aircraft has OK – WGG registration and was named after the Czech city of Liberec.
I used a kit from Skyline Models (DACO Products) for the construction. It’s the best kit on the market. Skyline models is the only one to produce Boeing 737 Classic aircraft (- 300, – 400, – 500). Construction kit parts are very accurate. No major adjustments required. Parts contain many details. The kit also includes winglets. It is possible to build upgraded versions of Boeing 737 – 300 and – 500.
I used decals from Czech manufacturer B.O.A. Decals. I had big problems with decal application. Decal dimensions are not accurate. Although the manufacturer recommends decals for the Skyline Models kit. The big problem is tearing the decals. I had to do a lot of repairs. Unfortunately, this is also visible in the model. I hope you enjoy the model.
