The BOEING 737 is a short to medium range twin-jet narrow-body airliner developed and manufactured by BOEING Commercial Airplanes in the United States.
Originally developed as a shorter, lower-cost twin-engine airliner derived from the 707 and 727, the 737 has developed into a family of ten passenger models with capacities from 85 to 215 passengers. The 737 is Boeing's only narrow-body airliner in production, with the 737 Next-Generation (-700, -800, and -900ER) and the re-engined and redesigned 737 MAX variants currently being built.
As a pilot on the -800 variant, I was really looking forward to 'mix' my passion for Lego with my other love, the aircraft I fly almost everyday.
I took a while to recreate the iconic 737 shape, and althought this model is not 100 percent accurate, it is very close to a 1:350 scale of the original.
I tried to recreate the Boeing official livery that is used on display aeroplanes. This is a completely revised version of my first project wich was really basic, where I added a lot of details following all the very useful advices I recieved from all you dear friends and supporters. They are:
- Removable roof to get access to the detailed, minifigure-scale passenger cabin;
- 4 main doors openable like the real ones, pulling them forward and then to the side;
- 3 toilets (2 in the back, 1 in the front) fitted with wc and sink;
- cabin crew galleys with ovens and all the equipment to prepare in-flight meals;
- tray tables from the armrest of the first row;
- spinnable jet engines: a shaft links the main fan with the turbine in the back, like a real jet.
- completely rebuilted nose to recreate the actual windshield shape and to make room for a detailed flight deck inside.
This model is made with 2700 bricks and its dimension are:
lenght 110 cm (43.3 in) width 115 cm (45.2 in) height 34 cm (13.4 in)
and it will weight approximately 3,5 kgs.
I look forward to receive all your useful advices!
