i might be switching my stock 64gb for 128gb that came from 13" model. both 13" and 11" are 2010 model, to me it seems it should be no problem.

is there anything i should look out for?

Follow the iFixit guides (11" MBAir (http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Installing+MacBook+Air+11-Inch+Late+2010+Solid-State+Drive/4381/1) and 13" MBAir (http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Installing+MacBook+Air+13-Inch+Late+2010+Solid-State+Drive/4505/1)) and you should be fine.

The only things I would keep in mind:

The drive orientation is reversed between the two sizes, this is obvious once it's open though
Follow normal ESD precautions (http://www.rfmd.com/CS/Documents/S518324Z_AN-037_ESD_Handling_Precautions.pdf) to avoid damage to your Mac and it's components
