Response to Great collection! Are the United decals laser printed?

The decals are not laser printed. They are Cartograph decals printed for Minicraft, but never issued by Minicraft for the following reason: Minicraft had molds for both the 737-300 and 737-400 fuselages. When they changed factories in China several years ago, the 737-300 fuselage mold was lost. However, the "400" mold, which arrived at the new factory was mis-marked as the "737-300". As such, Minicraft decided to reissue the "300" with United and Lufthansa decals. The decals were printed by Cartograph, but when the Chinese started injecting plastic, they discovered the mold labled "300" was actually a "400". Since United never flew the "400", all of the United decals were useless. I was able to secure one of the decal sheets and using one of the Minicraft "300's" in my stash, the model was completed. As you would expect, the Cartograph decals are superb. I am sure that if you contacted Minicraft, they would be willing to sell you one or more of the United/Lufthansa decal sheets.

HyperScale's 1/144 Scale Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature 1/144 scale (and smaller than 1/144 scale) kits.

  1. Build as many kits as you like

  2. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  3. Any markings are acceptable.

  4. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
