That looks great, is it a 737-700? Any chance of offering blended winglets as an option?

You are 737 pilot?
What the difference to fly with and w/o winglets on real one?

Wow, awesome, looking forward to the 737. I'm working on the 787 right now and hope to paint the 737 in Southwest Airlines colors.

Also subscribed and waiting anxiously for this airplane.

As a SWA pilot I'm sure you can guess what color it will be done in.

Hi Ming Lou
I was, I retired over two years ago. I flew the 737-400,737-700,737-800, and 737-900. My favorite was the -800, just the right size, nice and stable, yet responsive, in my mind a real pilots airplane. I don’t think the winglets affected the way the airplanes flew, but they did make them more fuel efficient. I just think they look really cool, and for a model, I think they add another element to the look of the airplane. I am looking forward to seeing your kit, thanks for the response. Mine will be painted in Alaska colors.

The 3D drawing spend over 300 working hours and amend it for hundred times.
Landing gear will retract just like the real one.
Can somebody comment you like the winglet or not?

How does one get a 737 in the US? I found the answer.

Windrider 787 & F-35 with optional landing gear.

Hi Ming,
The winglets were a modification to reduce the tip vortices.This was not done to improve handling.but did markedly improve long range fuel efficiency.I worked as a mechanic on 737-700's and 800's for a bit and this info comes from Boeing.Here's a couple birds I worked on.
