      Great, there you go...Just when I swore I was not going to purchase anymore decals! I swear this airliner modeling version of
      Hobby Pox is super contagious, and wallet emptying.

      At some point in time I imagine in my retirement that I will be eating decals sandwiches....Gee I wonder if mayo and mustard will make them taste better between two slices of bread?

      When you think you have enough project for the year, there's this decal that we gotta have...

      I had boxes and boxes and boxes of them before my fire. Kind of liberating in a way, although there were a few gems in there I'd kill to have back.

      Lets just hope they don't give you a hard time for using their logo; unlike that other terrible Dallas bAAsed airline did back in the golden era.

      I'll wait for the Fundekals/Liverys Unlimited release. I'm sure it will be worth any wait.

      Plans are that ours will have winglet decals designed to fit the kit (inaccurate) winglets, the Braz winglets, and the AA winglets so you can take your choice.

      And I just realized the KLM kit I have DOESN'T HAVE FREAKING WINGLETS!?!?!? Seriously, Revell?

      Anyone have a spare set of the inaccurate Revell winglets they'd like to unload??

      Indeed. The first releases of Revell B737-800, Hapag Lloyd and KLM, did not have winglets. They were added since the AirBerlin release later on.

      With all due respect to Ivo, I find his to be too paddle-like. Some tapering is in order.
      Kurt's parts are pretty much shake-n-bake. Good to go out of the box.

      BTW, Jennings..do you happen to have access to one of Danny's later kits?
      His winglets are also pretty good. Though I recall some discussion about
      their overall shape being "off" in a thread a waaayy long time ago. But
      for me, they're close enough. Could you include that as well?

      Your RVG winglets went out today. Let me know when (and how) they arrive.

      Calm down dear chap. Why on earth would Revell have winglets in a kit which was issued before the real aircraft got them?

      There was me thinking Jennings knew everything about everything but the Revell KLM 738 was issued in 2000 and deliveries of winglet-equipped 737NGs didn't begin until 2001.

      WOW! The link you provided Dave is amazing! What is it they don't provide about what, how and why about the winglets? I learned something today!

      Haven't had a chance to do anything yet. The summer semester that just started is going to keep me 124% occupied I'm afraid.

      A quick glance at the winglet webpage looks both interesting and informative.

      I thought at one time folks thought the 737 Classic and NG winglets were slightly different. Now are we thinking they are the same? So one COULD use DACO winglets on the Revell kit??

      737 Classic and 737NG winglets are NOT the same. However, it's said that DACO's winglets are more accurate for the NG's than for classic's, but you'd have to check that yourself.

      The classic ones are much smaller, something like 6-7 feet. They also angle out more. See if you can find a side-by-side picture somewhere, maybe a Southwest set.

      I have to get through the summer semester first (and pass everything). Later this year.
