Boeing 737 – 800, Air Explore, OM – HEX, Zvezda, 1/144

This is my latest finished model. It is Boeing 737 – 800 from Zvezda kit. Scale 1:144. Air Explore is a Slovak company. They are ACMI specialist. This means that they rent aircraft to other carriers along with the crew. Their fleet consists exclusively of Boeing 737 – 800 aircraft. Currently, they have six aircraft in the fleet. They have their base at the M. R. Štefánik Airport in Bratislava, Slovakia.

I used a kit from Zvezda. The quality of the kit is very high. Precision parts with lots of detail. Variable winglet options. All parts fit exactly. The construction required minimal adjustments. I made the decals according to my own design by Handl Models Accesories.

  1. Wow!
    Superb finish.
    If you could eliminate the shadowline between the background(-poster) and the “airfield”, the illusion were perfect.

  2. Another stunner…..great work, my friend.

  3. Another good looking 737 Ivan, well done.

  4. That build turned out rather well. The 737 is considered to be a Legacy aircraft with some of the first models nicknamed the Square Plane. Because, the wings and fuselage were close to being the same length. Much has change and Zvezda and your gifts and talents have gone a long way in making a striking model Ivan. Two thumbs up.

  5. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    Nice work Ivan on that 737, very clean and sharp. It really has the look.

  6. Just perfect! I’d like to try an airliner, too. Can you tell me a bit about how you did the painting, polishing and panelining, please?
    thks!

  7. Another winner, Ivan.

  8. Looks fantastic, and your photography work was very creative. Well done!

  9. Thank you all! I’m very pleased that you like my models. I really appreciate it!
