I’ve already created blank side view templates of all of the most interesting widebody commercial aircraft (DC-10, 777-200, 787-8, A380-800, and A350-900), so I thought it would be good to start getting practical and tackle more of the smaller and more common stuff. It’s not as much fun, but it needs to be done!

First up is this Airbus A320. Now, you’d probably think that creating a template of a smaller aircraft such as this would be much easier than some of the bigger airplanes I’ve been doing recently, and you’d be right – to a point. The difficulty comes when you factor in all the variants of the A320. There are two engines available (v2500 and cm56) and two different types of wingtips (rakelets and sharklets) – and any combination of all this stuff is available from Airbus today. So that means once I had the basic template created, there were a handful of variants I needed to create to make this a complete set.

The aircraft at the top of this post is an A320 with cm56 engines and rakelets. And here is the associated line drawing:

Next up is the all white rendering and wireframe line drawing for the variant with the cm56 engines and the new sharklets:

Now, here are the templates for the v2500 version with rakelets:

And finally, here is the v2500 version with sharklets:

While a bit confusing, all these different variants help to make the Airbus A320 one of the best selling commercial aircraft of all time. And they’re not even done tinkering! There are rumors floating around of a new engine option (NEO) coming soon, which will help to keep the A320 competitive for years to come. And you can be sure I’ll create a template of that one as soon as I can get my paws on some decent (and accurate) reference material.
