      Hi Guys,

      All the best for the holiday season.

      Just wondering is there a decal sheet for Korean 737-800s?

      Looking for something interesting to put on the Zvezda kit.

      Cheers

      Hello.
      Yes there is, Brasil decals have one.
      I would think it fits the Zvezda kit.

      A bit of advice from experience: there are subtle but potentially significant shape differences between the Revell and Zvezda 737s, and many decals may not tell you which kit the decal is designed around, so it's an excellent idea to make a couple of photocopies of the decal sheet for test-fitting purposes.

      It may not matter all that much on the Korean Air livery (since it's only a matter of adapting the silver band), but on a livery with a lot of wrap-around it's something to think about. I bought the 8A Decs sheet for the new Alaska Airlines livery and decided to use it on my Zvezda kit, but when I test-fit copies of the decal on the plastic I found out it was apparently designed around the Revell kit and the blue wraparound would not completely cover the lower fuselage. Making the copy for test-fit purposes let me figure out a work-around on my own time without risking the decal.

      That's really the only issue I had with the Zvezda 737, which is one of the sweetest kits I've built in a long time. I will be very happy when the decal market's had time to catch up with this wonderful kit.

      As long as I can get my hands on a Zvezda 737 kit, I'll never build another Revell Germany 737. The Zvezda kit is that good!
