    Absolutely stunning! Wonderfully made aircraft. The wings could be slightly thinner but this is a very small criticism.

    This is perhaps the best airliner I've flown on low physics, only problem is that it bounces like it's trying to replicate a Ryanair landing

    This is looking really smooth. My only 2 criticisms are the shape of the airfoils and the shape of the engines. Well, time to spotlight I guess.

    @MrSilverWolf I most certainly agree! Now imagine if @NULLPTR planned to build the Boeing 747-500X, -600X, and -700X from the 1990s. First, the 747-500X was 250 ft long with a 251 ft wingspan, a 70 ft tall tail and seating for at least 460 pax. Next, the 747-600X was 279 ft long with the same size wingspan and tail as the 500X, and seating for at least 550 pax. And finally, the 747-700X was as long as the -600X and with the same wing and engines but had a 75 ft tall tail and a wider 11-12 abreast fuselage allowing seating for at least 650 pax. Now wouldn't that be awesome or what?

    This recreation of the 737-500WL you made is exceptionally flawless! I give this plane a perfect 10/10 for how much it looks like the real thing! Keep up the excellent work @NULLPTR! :) ;) :D
