I would suggest starting out with bigger planes first, as my experience with making model kits has taught me to first learn how to paint large surfaces before going small, and this is true for any type of vehicle. 737s are small, either in 1:400 or 1:500, so it is easier to mess it up if you get it wrong. I would suggest buying first plastic model kits (Hasegawa comes to mind) to practice with, to get the feel of it, so to speak.

what do you use to paint them and can you get big 737s to start because I have done models before.

I don't know what the custom modelers here use but I heard Tamyia airbrush paints work really good. But I agree with Millardo, start off with something larger like a 747 or 777 in your fleet you don't want. Because it is SO much easier to mess up with smaller models.

Start by getting a good compressor/air brush, spray cans will NOT work on 1/400 scale models.

You mean 1:200 or 1:144 737's??? What do you mean by huge? But There are soooo many of them in 1:200 and 1:144. They are just plastic kits you can usually get at most hobby stores. Revell is pretty good quality, along with Minicraft and Hasegawa. Hope this helps.
