I will start building the B737 when I complete my FMS T28 (presently modifying all the control hinges and installing a kind of fowler flap system, cockpit to be modified with side panels and pictures of the real instruments all around applied). Since two weeks I ordered a variety of items from various retailers in Honk Kong, USA and Germany to be able to build the B737 the way I want it (change sun 10 bladed fans with realistic jet noise, single slotted fowler flaps, spoilers, complete lightning with double strobes etc, stronger gear and realistic wheels, main and nose gear doors). Just gathering all necessary info (remember woman are not afraid to ask their way around instead of finding out everything themselves ;-) and parts took a few months. The r/c groups thread on the windrider B737 and its possible motorization both are more than 350 pages and took forever to read and filter the useable essentials. Purchasing the B737 is easy, order it directly from Ming in Hong Kong. He ships it all over the world (sometimes free) and people are pleased with his services. http://www.windrider.com.hk/index.asp
As for the finishing of both models, Calie has shipped the custom decals for the T28 and B737 (see pictures of the originals below) but for practical reasons of my choice, all the US ordered stuff will arrive together in one box in December. I can't wait to see what Santa will deposit under my tree.
