Default IF200 AA/TWA retro 737

Arrived today. I don’t understand why American didn’t do this in white.

Fantasy model? I don't recall who acquired TWA, but if it was AA then they would have had the old logo. Nice model regardless.

Not a fantasy model. Have a look at "N915NN" out on airliners.net .

Nice, I was thinking of getting this one, but will wait to see if Gemini does it.

The American/AirCal retro 737 was done in white, but a sort of dingy white.
PS,,,,since G2 hasn't made the AA/AirCal retro, I am hoping IF will do it.

Oh okay. I agree, white would be best but American uses kind of a pearl color on their fleet.

This mold looks better than what I’m used to seeing from IF. I don’t visit much so I could have missed it, but does IF now use a better 737 mold like maybe the Gemini one? IF has always had THE absolute worst 737 models.

This one looks pretty nice.

This is my first IF200 737 NG and I like it. It is noticably heavier than the Gemini. Gemini 737 is the 2nd release AA from a few years ago.

Yes, odd Gemini did the Reno retro, but not this one. Will the AirCal be done to complete the trio?

Gemini did AirCal in 1/400 a while back, so I thought they would have released the 1/200 by now. I will take whatever I can get!
