Nacelle size is not necessarily indicative of fan size. There are different designs in the cowling forward of the fan to optimize flow in to the engine as well as providing ground clearance in below wing applications( such as the 737).

The the cowling further aft is shaped to fit the accesory unit that drives a hydraulic pump, electric generator, starter unit, etc..

I looked at my Ming 737 and compared it to the 737 I fly for a living and it looks scale to me.

Just sayin
