737-800 side view all white

Right off the heels of my DC-10-30 blank template illustrations, I’m proud to say that I just finished blank templates of the Boeing 737-800! I was actually planning on doing the 777-200 next, but I’m currently working on an unrelated project where I need a drawing of a 737-800 – so there was a real need to make this set.

Just like that DC-10 set, I made a wireframe drawing and an all white version of this 738 – both with winglets. I’m going to hold off on doing a bare metal version for now, as I don’t need it and there are very few airlines these days with exposed-aluminum in their livery. Except for American Airlines – wow…they certainly have one of my favorite color schemes at the moment, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it. Bare metal is a very difficult texture to recreate!

I’d also like to take a moment to mention that I’m actually learning quite a bit about aircraft design by creating these templates. In order to illustrate accurate representations of these aircraft, I have to pour over hundreds of photos and illustrations to make sure I’m getting everything as correct as possible. And the frustrating part is that there are still things in my drawings that aren’t totally accurate! Believe me, the perfectionist in me is not proud, so please don’t send me email reminding me about the little errors you spot. 🙂

August 16, 2014 Edit: I just finished up reworking this template to include a version with split scimitar winglets, so I thought I’d add it to this existing post instead of creating a new one. Here’s it is:

    Are you planning to make a template of 737-800BCF?

    Actually, I didn’t even know that there was a BCF version of the 738. Interesting! Anyway, I’m in the process of redoing all of my 737 templates (to make them more consistent with one another) so I’ll definitely add the BCF as part of that project.

    I am pleased to hear that.

    738BCF maybe is a project in the future.If some airlines are interested in this project(SF airlines in china maybe need it),Boeing will start it.:p

    Are you planning to make a template of 737-600 ?

  6. Norebbo Author

    Yes, I have plans for that! I’m in the process of re-doing all my 737 templates at the moment, so once I get those done it will allow me to create older versions such as the -600, -500, etc.
