    hey, Fellas! Eastern Airlines is getting a reboot! and everyone seems to say that they're doing things right, doing things that the pan am reboots haven't been. Eastern is expected to get delivery of its first 737 this August or September. and they're operating out of the old Eastern hub in Miami! :D

    the 737-800 looks pretty sexy in the Hockey Stick livery, don't you think? D

    It is. I was given it a few years ago as an unwanted kit. It isn't great but makes a decent model with a bit of work...and Alclad :)

    The decals were in a bad state and needed some TLC, but it came out just about okay in the end.

    If you can get hold of this old kit go for it, but it does need a bit of work.
