Default BB Jet Airways 737-800

Not a new model, but new to me. With the recent demise of Jet Airways, I thought I should pick up one of these, particularly as I did fly on this particular frame once (HYD to BLR as I recall).

Not my primary collection criteria, but I have been trying to get at least one of each of the India carriers that I have flown on.

Anyone out there got a Kingfisher A320 in 1:200?

Such a beautiful scheme, cheat line with a modern twist.
Sad to see it go.

I agree. Never was a huge fan of the tail logo, but the treatment with the yellow ribbon “twisting” into the blue window line was fantastic.

For what it’s worth, I originally spelled out Blue Box but ran out of letters in the title....

I was in India a week or so ago, and saw a bunch of the Jet Airways 737s with the tail logo painted out (except for the rudder) and the titles replaced by temporary "SpiceJet" ones. I guess that revenue service takes priority over a repaint.

Back home, I dug out my only other Jet Airways model - the 777-300 (operated by Ethihad) - and while I had the camera out for my Tower Air arrival, I grabbed a couple of shots.
