Default BA 737s: 2 New makes 2 many! (Picture Heavy)

It's been 4 years since I last took stock of my BA 737 collection. The arrival of the BA Birmingham and Manchester Landor 737-200s this week caused me to pull together more recent pictures.

Somehwhere I have the Green tail "Transavia leased to British airways" but I cannot find it. I did however find a bunch of models. Starting with the 737-200s, Negus, Landor and then Utopia (World Tails)

It's remarkable how off the red colors are on the Skyline models. They should have researched the correct color palette.

I agree. AFAIK all the Skyline Negus models were like that. Look at the Skyline vs Gemini 757s.

I agree, lovely BA 737 history with a couple of 757's at the end. I like the Water Dreaming World tails in fact BA did a good job of selecting the artwork for all the world tails. Someone has some great, no let me correct that, some outstanding decal making skills
Well done on this collection

Thanks. Most decals were bought, some currently available and others long gone but sourced from eBay. Some applied by Al King and later by me. Custom decals are a mix by Al and by me.

Very impressive collection.

I do feel we are lacking an accurate enough B737-200 mould in this scale, though.

Adding to my old thread instead of starting a new one. BA Landor 737-200 "World's Biggest Offer" was my last arrival of the year and rounds out the collection so far. The Landor "British Airtours" should be the next add.

I also found my other Caledonian model. This one is the Inflight LE version (the Skyline was posted up thread..) Here they are together, Skyline on the left.

I think what this does show is some nightmare variations of flight-deck windows.
Great collection though.

Thanks, but all cockpits are untouched. The difference is due to variations by manufacturers. I just change the tails and reg decals.
