    Will you be offering this in several different schemes? Be careful regarding Southwest,as they're very protective about their trademark.That's one reason you see very few decal sheets produced in the USA for their schemes.
    Looking really great and keep up the good work.

    Cheers,
    Douglas :cool:

    a bit more...

    Hello!

    Here is another bit forward with a front gear.

    The parts were designed in 1:36 but after I downscaled them to 1:72 they went very very small. The main part is about 2.5 cm high.

    I was planning to put a miniature steering cylinders, but I don't have a toothpicks at the moment:mrgreen:

    Putting it all together would be much more easy if I would go for 1:50wall1

    And here comes the final thing...

    Hello!

    Here comes the final thing with front B-737 landing gear... Hurray!!!:)

    Now 'only' digitalisation and colour adding:mrgreen:
    Please wish me good luck and time as I will be busy with other things again.

    As I heard that some airlines don't like models with their colours, first I am going to consider those which colours were already present on paper models.

    In other words B-737-300 may appear in schemes of:

    KLM (B-747 Papertrade, DC-10 Leon Schuijt)
    LOT (IL-62 Maly Modelarz)
    British Airways (BAC-111 Leon Schuijt)
    Delta (B-727 3-D Paper)

    Malev

    Hello!

    Thank you for your kind words!

    Sorry that I haven't been here for a bit long.
    Not much time to work on model.:oops:

    Anyway, I decided to go for MALEV as the first (or one of the first?) painting schemes.
    (For now, I am choosing only the defunct airlines to not to worry if the airlines will allow to use their colours on my model)

    All the best!:wave:

    going_digital

    Hello!

    Today I managed to do a bit of digitalisation.
    I am still learning how to deal with Corel and for the very first time I put the shades on the windows.

    Here is how it looks for now...

    All the best!

    Cool!

    Looking good - watch out for distortion of your door and window frames by the drawing software... not that I see any on your drawings, but it has "bitten" other designers.

    Hello!

    Thank you guys!:thumb:
    I am happy that you like it!

    I hope the distortion will be under control as I am using the vector drawing program.
    The digitalisation is really time consuming, so I hope all my future designs will get full digital design.

    All the best!

    my first digital step:)

    Hello!

    Recently I had some problems with computer especially with program called Vista.
    (By the way as my friend from Latvia says VISTA in Latvian means... CHICKEN/HEN:mrgreen:)

    Anyway, after all I installed my copy of Siatki 4.1 from GreMir and gave it a try with CFM-56 engine inlet.

    Looks like using the digital digital designing can really speed up the whole process:mrgreen: Here is what I made just in a couple of minutes...
    (Red lines added just for better overall view)

    All the best!
