Inflight200 IF737MAX001 – 1/200 Scale B737 Max 8 Diecast Model.
Inflight200 IF737MAX001 is a 1/200 Scale diecast model of the Boeing 737 MAX 8. Registered N8704Q, the fourth and final test aircraft, in Boeing house colours.
Boeing 737 MAX.
The Boeing 737 MAX is an American series of twin turbofan, narrow-body airliners, the fourth generation of the B737 family. The first flight, a 737 MAX 8, took place on January 29, 2016, and entered service on May 22, 2017, with Malindo Air (a subsidiary of Lion Air). The MAX 9 is expected to begin service in 2018, the MAX 7 / MAX 200 in 2019, and the MAX 10 in 2020.
The 737 MAX series seats 138 to 230 passengers with ranges of 5,954km to 7,084 km (36,100mi to 4401mi). The 737 MAX 7, MAX 8, and MAX 9 replace, subsequently, the 737-700, -800, and -900. The further stretched 737 MAX 10 joined the series in June 2017.
Boeing launched the BBJ MAX family on April 2, 2014, consisting of the BBJ Max 8 and MAX 9. Boeing added The BBJ MAX 7 in July 2016. The BBJ MAX 8 will have a range of 11,714km, an extra 1,482 km and 5.8 m ( 19ft) increase in cabin length of the BBJ2 (737-800). BBJ MAX-7 targets the ultra-long-range market with a range in the region of 7,000nm.
Design improvements over the previous generations include the use of the more efficient CFM International LEAP-1B turbofan, aerodynamic enhancements and airframe modifications.
The increased fan diameter from 154cm (61 in) on previous generations to 176cm (69.4 in) required the lengthening of the nose wheel strut by 20 cm (8 in). The engines are positioned higher and further forward to help with ground clearance. Stronger landing gear, nacelles, wings and fuselage for the increased engine and operation weights.
A new 2.9 m (9.5 ft) spit winglet improves lift, reduces drag and minimises any increase to the wingspan. Enabling the use of the same size airport gates as the current generation of B737s. The tailcone has been extended by 109 cm (43 in), enabling removal of the aft body vortex generators. A door has replaced the APU air inlet duct further reducing drag.
The flight deck features four 380 mm (15.1-inch) liquid crystal displays (LCD), as on the 787 Dreamliner. Boeing minimised modifications to the flight deck, to maintain commonality with the 737 NG. The 737 MAX extended spoilers are fly-by-wire controlled.
The CFM LEAP-1B fan with a 69.4-inch fan diameter has a higher bypass ratio and thrust. Giving an 11-12% reduction in fuel consumption and 7% reduction in operating cost compared to the NG.
The more substantial engine is cantilevered ahead of and slightly above the wing. The fan is an 18-blade, made of woven carbon-fibre. The laminar flow engine nacelle features chevrons for noise reduction like the 787. A new bleed air digital regulator improves efficiency.
737 MAX 8.
The first variant developed in the MAX series and replaces the 737-800. Seats, 162 passengers in 2 classes or up to 189 in a single class. In September 2014, Boeing announced a 200 seat ( Max 210) version of the MAX 8, designated as the 737 MAX 200. It is expected to enter service in 2019.
