Default Another Air France B 737-200 ?

This AF livery is very elegant on a B 737-200, it would be great if one of our main stream manufacturers could be tempted by this model.

In that case, please chose the sister aircraft named Guyane and registered N4504W.

More in the Custom Made Models section.

Jean Pierre.

Thank you Tom, I still have a few gaps in my AF fleet ...

It was the delivery livery and as far as I know, it remained the same during all the time the aircraft spent in the Caribbean.

The "Guyane" was the first to leave and returned to Western Airlines in Nov 1979, the "Antilles" followed in May 1980.

Thank you Jay.

I am just an ordinary modeler trying to do his best with big fingers and old eyes.

Looking at your efforts, one would never suspect big fingers and old eyes!

Excellent, Jean Pierre!

Congratulations Jean Pierre another gap filled but a diecast polished copy I know you and collectors would love. Maybe one day Gemini or JCW will do it. (Sooner rather than later of course).

Thank you my friends for your kind words.

This B 737 is the 20th custom made model in my AF fleet, I have a few more in the pipe line or in project.

Jean Pierre.
