I agree Brian. It would be sweet to glass that baby up. the engine Nacelles could be interesting on landing though. Maybe some type of breakaway system or magnets. I guess you could just make them for static display. Would you just leave them off?

Ming this is your best yet!!!

Defo a break-away system. Velcro, magnets, clips, must be lots of ways of doing it..

The time we spend to build this EDF 737 is just 3.5 hours.
And glider version just spend 1 hour.

Here is the solution I am using for the 7late7 (oops, 787 - better make sure management doesn't see that )

The biggest drawback with Ming's A380 as a sloper (a very good sloper, btw) is the damage incurred to the pylons/nacelles on every landing

Imagine that on the 4-engine Airliner: a major foam shower just before touch-down as nacelles go flying around!

What I meant was that it's cool that the little airliners first flight was at such a famous airport. Great job Ming!

Honestly guys my knock off pylons work a treat!

It's the high speed nose first stops that did for the airframe and pylons!
