Steve, my man. So you crossed over to 'The Other Side (1/200)?' Might you have stayed with us at 1/400 if you know that NGM and Panda were on the horizon? Over, Doug

The rocket ship from Denver.

As a airline customer this is my favorite airplane ever. I flew it often in both markings but do not have this model in my collection.

Southwest 737-200 pilots used to have fun with theirs; I think the Frontier pilots enjoyed these too. The -200 had guts and worked well at all the high altitude airports.

Same same. A Frontier 727-200 in the Bow and Arrow scheme has been announced for future release by IF200. Here's hoping that IF200 will also give us a 737-200 in the Bow and Arrow scheme, along with a Western airplane in the Indian Head scheme.

I ordered this model from Eztoys a couple months ago while it was still on Pre-order status. I'm surprised it's not sold out considering how popular this scheme has been over the years.

I flew in Frontier's 732 in '79 from Denver to Salt Lake City because the Convair 580 broke down for the flight from Denver to Jackson Hole. A 580 flew me into Jackson Hole the following day. Great way to sample an airline when you have a little time. Excellent service all around.

Hi Doug,
I've read some of the threads on NGM but the only 1:400 left for me is a Gemini release of a Frontier Convair 580. Still waiting.

Yeah, I've seen some of these future releases but they don't seem to get much press on DAC. Then again, I don't hang out much in the 1:200 forum. Would love to get a Western 732 in the flying W scheme.

IF200 released the 737-200 in the Winnebago ("Flying W") scheme several years ago, but I would guess they're hard to find by now and fairly pricey. They also did a Bud Light (bare metal) 737-200. I'm hoping for a 737-300 Bud Light in the future.

Frontier was a great airline - good equipment, good maintenance and good training. I had friends who flew for Frontier and all of them were exceptionally skilled mountain pilots.

As a passenger in early 1979, I rode through three VOR approaches in a blizzard, trying to get into Vernal, UT on a Frontier CV-580. After the second missed approach, the captain came on the PA and said we had enough fuel for one more attempt before diverting to SLC.

It was snowing sideways at about 30 knots, but we made it in on the third pass, landing in about 10 inches of fresh snow on a short runway at a 5,279 foot field elevation. Believe me, those guys were GOOD.

I can only hope for the Flying W in a possible future release. I won't bother trying to acquire a high priced initial release.

Had to be a hair raising experience getting into Vernal, Utah. No doubt, you flew the ultimate Frontier experience. And it's good to know your friends were skilled mountain pilots. Doesn't get any better than that.

Mine arrives Monday or Tuesday. Have been waiting a long time for this release. Sold my 1:400 scale one (SMA) in hope this would eventually be done.

I flew for Western (hired in 1986) and we were justifiably proud of our own mountain flying skills (flying into Juneau, AK, Jackson, WY and many other stations that were in or near high terrain). But I've never lost my admiration for the "old Frontier" guys (especially the CV-580 crews). It was a sad day when that proud little company went under.

I'm glad that you also have some fond memories of Frontier...

OK, since Frontier seems to be liked, I'll add some to this.

This was my hometown airline. Locals in Denver aspired to work at FL and I knew some who did. They were proud of it.

My work in Denver from about 1976 to about 1984 had me flying a lot and my choice was always FL. In the '70s of course coach fares on all carriers were the same. So FL made itself better and that's why I flew it. The competition was, by comparison, lame (especially BN). PHX on a Western 720 or FL 737? OKC or TUL on a BN 727 or FL 737? MCI or STL on TW or FL? ABQ or ELP on a CO 727 or FL? Always FL.

There was "Mateus Rose" wine before dinner, a little beef filet next and then an ice cold chocolate sundae for dessert. Really.

The 737s were fast and on time. I knew some of the flight attendants. The planes were clean. The "Mountain Masters" were rare for me to use for my travel but I do remember a very few 580 legs (maybe Wichita to Tulsa or OKC). The 737-200 was my Frontier.

Then they grew. I went more places on the rocket ships. SAN, SEA, MSN. Then People Express merged/took over or something and it was gone. And flying mainline service on any of the other carriers that were left was never close to as satisfying as riding that 737 back home to Denver.

I don't think PEX had anything to do with FL's demise. The company simply ran out of cash in August 1986. There were rumors that FL might be acquired by United or by Frank Lorenzo's Texas Air Corp. (which held CO at the time), but nothing ever came of them. Instead, both of them stayed on the sidelines and acquired some of Frontier's equipment (at fire sale prices) when the company was finally liquidated.

I'll stick up a bit for Western's quality of service. We consistently had one of the best on-time records in the industry (often No. 1) and our cabin crews took pride in pampering our passengers. The food was good and champagne was available on every flight (even at breakfast, for those so inclined). Behind the scenes, maintenance and training were both excellent.

I was flying (as a new-hire 727 flight engineer) on the day when Frontier went into receivership. We had stopped in SEA, after a red eye from ANC early that morning. One of the gate agents came aboard and told us about Frontier just before we pushed back. We talked about that on the way down to SLC, and all three of us felt the same way - sorry for our friends at Frontier and hoping for the best. Sadly, it was not to be.

Planemark,
If the above picture does any justice, I think you'll like it a lot. I won't sell the two 1:400 AC 737s as they are part of my domestic airline displays. Just waiting for a 580 to put in it.

You said it right Tony. It's a cute bugger.

With the number of Frontier flights you took over the years, that says a heck of a lot for their consistent service. I hadn't flown the other airlines at Stapleton, but was extremely impressed with the concourse views of them. From where I lived (Norfolk, Va.), Stapleton was huge in comparison and it was fun checking out all the airlines there.

I too have many fond memories of those days when FL serviced Cheyenne. Back in the days when it was actually a pleasure to step on board and the service was genuine. The A&P school I attended Colorado AeroTech was originally owned by FL. Then they fell into hard times and they sold the school. I do remember bugging the gal in the
admissions office for one of the school posters that featured a 732 in the livery shown. Is there any truth to the rumor that this livery was designed for FL by the same artist, Saul Bass that also gave us UAL's Orange/Red/Blue livery when UAL departed from the Mainliner and Stars & Bars in the 70's?

Speaking of your namesake user name, I have Robert Serling's book on Western Airlines. It parallels your summation of the airline you flew for. I also have the book on Frontier Airlines by Gregory Stearns. Yeah, they definitely ran out of money. Thanks very much for relating your experience here.

P.S. Western's Flying W logo/cheatline reminded me of a branding iron. That's why I always called the scheme Sizzle Stick.

Pretty funny with you bugging the lady for the poster. With regard to the shown livery, Al Feldman did hire Saul Bass to design it. In 1978, Frontier received instant acclaim with the Saul Bass scheme.

You cannot go wrong with a Saul Bass livery. It's like instant fame. To my 43yo eyes, that was the greatest era in livery design.

Sizzle Stick? I'd never heard of that before, but I like it. (Some of us called it the Flying Crankshaft.)

I never heard of the Flying Crankshaft but it makes a lot of sense.

Default Re: Inflight Frontier Airlines 737-200

With all the enjoyable talk about flying FRONTIER including the 580s I am surprised nobody mentioned how good this 737 looks parked next to the Gemini 1/200 580 in this same scheme.


I now have BOTH and they look mighty fine together!


The 'maroon' on the 580 is darker and somewhat brownish but it doesn't ruin the fun of having both!


Bring on the ox bows!
