Boeing 737 and DC-10 build?

Hey guys I know it is a lot to ask for but there are many skilled plan makers in this forum. I would like to request plans for a small Boeing 737. Maybe around 30 inches of wingspan?
I have been wanting a 737 from the day I started this hobby. In fact, it was because I wanted to fly airliners that I even started this whole beginner phase

Thanks guys,
Teja

What I would do for such a smallish airplane is go with a profile. It would be real simple to get a three-view drawing and then scale them to your desired size. To give the fuselage and engines some three dimensional depth try using half-inch blucore.

Try making it a single pusher to start with. If you like it, make another as a twin engine puller (if it is a 737 with the CFM56 engines) or a twin pusher if you build the 737-200 with the JT8D engines.

Not super hard. In fact, I have been thinking about doing the same thing with my current ride, a 757 or 767-300ER.

I did try that once. I think I would be able to get the scale width of the plane and then cut out profiles to be the width of the fuselage and then carve and sand the nose and tail?

I did see a profile 737 on here some time back. It had dummy 2d foam engines and a mid mount motor in a slot in the fuz. Be dammed if I can find it. Looked like a great but simplistic design.

Good luck

i dont have any at the moment but after my 747, then the mb339 im drawing in auto cad i will do some 737 plans, i have attached a proflie a300 plans it is to be built like a shock flyer.

i found these plans on the net it was ment to be a little glider that someone has developed i have the videos of the test flights saved to my computer seemed like a good flyer, so in auto cad i enlarged it wingspan 31.5 inches length of around 35 inches, i wa going to make it a pusher, add a little carbon fibre to the leading edges and bam a profile a300, i have tiled the plans too,

i have the dwg/ dxf file if you requiere it, as someoff you lucky people have cnc machines

I found this picture worthy of becoming plans! It was there the whole time. It gives all the formers for the fuse and everything. All I have to do is go to kinkos and print it out larger and draw out the newer version of the nacelles.

Ok, guys, this is my plan, I am going to fedex kinkos and printing out a large 3 view of a 737 and a dc-10. I will get 1inch thick pink foam from Home depot and put the 3 view on the rectangular prism I will cut. The side view on the side, and a front view on the front and the top view on the top. Then I will sand it to be like a fuse. Will take time but I think it will be faster than cutting out all the formers and glueing them together and sheeting with depron no? Has anyone tried this? Will it work?

Will start this weekend probably. Leaning towards the dc-10 because I only have one EDF system. I will update the title.
