    Hi Cybermac,

    It's only weak BEFORE it is permanently glued. Without understanding the whole picture, my first suggestion would be: leave it as it is currently designed UNLESS is it weak after it is glued in place.

    As you suggested I've put a second layer of cardboart on 2 sides of pylon to make it stronger, and it really works!!!:thumb:

    Cybermac,

    After seeing the part in its final position, I believe this may have been strong enough without the cardboard. It is a box section (3 sides), with the top face of the box glued to the top of the wing. The back of the engine rests up against the back of the part preventing the assembly from drooping down in the front.

    Just my opinion, but nothing wrong with reinforcing for a margin of safety either.

    Step by step

    Hi all!

    The first Boeing's 'nose' and cabin were too long when I compared with more advanced drawing, so I am making new one...

    Glad to see that you are still at it. I was modifying my 737 (AirTran and Southwest Airlines) to model COPA Airlines using photos for the texture, like I did for the cockpit windows. Gave up a few months ago when I couldn't get the printer to print the same hues between sheets. I did get the wings and winglets to come out pretty good.

    nose cone is coming...

    Hello!:wave:

    To make this nose cone precisely, I made designing parts 2x bigger.
    Later on, of course I'll put them into the proper 1:72 size, just like on the picture...

    Details...

    Hello!

    If it was not a B-737 but for example Su-27 or F-15 which scale drawings You can find anywhere I would be able to do anything...

    After a long internet battle I bought an old issue of Aviation News recently (the bottom one) which proudly says 'BOEING 737 SCALE PLANS' but only a side wiev is 1:72, cross sections aren't done properly...

    I hope I will not disappoint You, but so far I can do only some basic details like doors, cargo doors, windows etc. I am going to add some more according to painting scheme later on.

    I will try to send you my cabin area via PM. It doesn't have interior shots, but uses photos for the windows. I found the most difficult area to get looking right is the fuselage immediately behind the cockpit, the part uncovered in your photo.
