Exclamation Is this an Error?

Hi,

I was looking at what 1/200 WestJet models we have in the database, and I found this:
http://www.diecastaircraftforum.com/...iew-33492.html

Why does the Title say "Inflight200 WestJet B 737-7CTWL 1:200 - IFCAN732004 - ID#33492"?

But in the picture, it clearly shows a 737-200, not a 737-7CTWL.

Any ideas on why this is? Thanks!

Also, it says Status: In Production and Units: Unlimited

So does that mean I can still buy it or order it from my retailer?

G'day,

While this model was entered before my time (back in 2012 I was assistant and only worked on 1/400 scale models) I ran an investigation and found that C-GVWJ has been allocated to two different B 737s. One pictured A B 737-281, while the other more recent is a B 737-7CT.

Add to this that in the past Database moderators to save time would 'copy' another similar model is how the number is Unlimited and In production. The database moderator simply copied Wings ID # 2817 and changed the info to confir with the new info. Unfortunately when researching that he/she checked on the wrong C-GVWJ...

WestJet Airlines C-GVWJ (Boeing 737 Next Gen - MSN 36421) | Airfleets aviation
As you can see this is where the wrong info was added. btw B 737-7CTWL where WL = Winglets. Nowadays I add this info to remarks and not list it under Aircraft information.

I've gone ahead and fixed the listing. If you find another one, drop me a PM or email me at
[email protected]
and I will fix it pronto.

Cheers Lou

I would guess it is not currently in production, so anything you find at a retailer is either NOS or used.

Daniel,

Phone the Spitfire Emporium in Kitchener (or even try to see if you can get over there). I'm pretty sure they have one or two InFlight WestJet 737-200s on at original retail (nice and cheap compared to 2016 prices).

HTH,
Roy

Ok, hope I will find one soon, because I want to build a WestJet sub-collection.

The Spit Emp folks are seriously under-staffed and their website is way out of date, so do be careful when checking them out there please. That's why I suggested phoning them. Having said that, I was just in to visit and they have three of the InFlight 1/200 WestJet 732s at $80.00 CDN as well as two each of the Air Canada and Canadian/Canadien green tails. They also have a number of UM (used model) trade-in 1/200 models for very good prices; it might be worth finding yourself in "the neighbourhood".

Cheers,
Roy

The last Westjet B737-200 sits in a vocational school hangar here in Vancouver. They donated it for aspiring mechanics to work on. One stipulation,it remains airworthy. They didn't want it in a million pieces all over the hangar floor.
