Default Virgin Australia737-8 with Scimitar wingtips

From the INflight200 family a Jfox release


SKU JF-737-8-033


REGO VH-YIR


NAME : "CACTUS BEACH"


The Split Scimitar winglet technology was developed by Aviation Partners Boeing. The Split Scimitar Winglet took it's name after a type of Middle Eastern sword with a curved blade. It features a split tip with one part curved upwards and the end of the wing and the lower second tip pointing downwards and backwards at an angle. These Scimitar wingtips technology assisted with the 737MAX development, but there you go with a little bit more 737 history.


virgin australia retrofitted five 737-800 aircraft to serve them on short international sectors from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane to Bali Indonesia, Fiji, Pacific Islands an of course New Zealand to save on fuel burn. The five aircraft retofitted where VH-YIU "Middleton Beach" VH-YIV Cylinder Beach"also released by Geminijets SKU # G2VOZ496, VH-YIJ "Pernington Bay", VH-YIR "Cactus Beach" this release featured here and finally, VH-YIS "Casurina Beach"


My first 737-8 Inflight model and I love the details. A lovely model I hope you agree. Please enjoy the pictures.











Focus on the detail of the strobe light and exhaust here please




















and now this model now joins my united Eco skies 737-900 Scimitar

I forgot two things. One the box art work which I will now post and two, virgin australia international is no more after covid-19. While these 737-8S remain with VA, everything else used for international sectors is up for sale including their 5 x 777-300er's fully refurbished new leather seats and latest fast Wifi satcoms







the box artwork

Congrats! Gorgeous model. I'm impressed with the level of detail (as I'm sure you are, too). And I like your car in the background. What is it?

Details are amazing. I forgot to take photos of just how good the gear down looks too. Front nose gears doors look in per portion to the real aircraft. I should have taken my car outside on the street for that photo sorry about that. To answer your question, it's a FORD Falcon XR6.


here's two photo's of gear down sorry I didn't take better pics

Thanks for the beautiful pictures.
The model looks very good and I’m very tempted in adding a copy to my small humble collection...
