      Finally got some MAX family station diagrams (thanks David!). Here's the whole family side by side. Interestingly, the MAX 7 is really a shrunken MAX 8 not a redesigned 737-700. It shares Section 44 (the over-wing section) with the MAX 8, which is where it gets its dual over-wing hatch configuration. It's longer both forward and aft of the wing compared to the 737-700. There are a number of other detail differences between the fuselages of the MAXs vs. the NGs. And then there are those ginormous engines!




      Now I'm hearing that Lufthansa may be getting ready to order the MAX!

      Hi Jennings,

      Great info. So what does it take to turn a Zvezda 737-Max8 kit into a 737-Max9? How about a Max10? Assuming that Zvezda got the details with regard to the wings and tail cone correct (we know they dd not do the nose gear correctly), we should be able to stretch that kit into the longer versions.

      Thoughts?

      Thanks,

      Mark

      I'll work up some conversion diagrams for the Zvezda kit.

      Here ya go! The measurements indicate the difference in the location of each cut, fore and aft respectively. And as with the NG's you can't simply remove X window spaces to get this done accurately. The frame width varies so the window arrangement isn't the same on any two variants. I've also indicated the location of the aft escape hatch for the MAX 9 and MAX 10.

      And just for comparison...

      707-120B vs. 737 MAX 10!

      Jennings, thank you for these comparisons. Comparisons as these always interest me, especially the last one between the Max 10 and the 707.
      I find it interesting that the Max 10 will carry more passengers than the 707 with a considerably smaller wing. It seems as though there would be a balance problem with it that a computer would have to account for. Just my observation.

      A little off topic and not that it matters but FWIW, whenever I see a 707 (my favorite jetliner) I always think of American Airlines which to that I have to say: Bring back the eagle. The only thing this new logo gives me is a paper cut since it looks like a paper tab.

      Awesome work Jennings!

      I love the 707-120B comparison. I am working on an Authentic Airliners American Airlines 707-123B now.

      I guess I need to get a couple of Zvezda 737-8Max Kits. Any chance you can do a New United Airlines Livery for the 737-9Max?


      Thanks again,

      Mark

      A 737-100 and max 10 comparison would be interesting including engine size!

      Hi everyone,

      Thanks Jennings for doing this. I have felt that the 737Max10 really is a twin engine 707. Yes there are many other differences between the 707 and 737-10Max....but it is very interesting to see the little "Boeing Bug" of 1967 become what it is today.

      I would love to see LH order the plane!! Your rendition of the (somewhat boring) new LH livery on it is very impressive.
      If LH does buy the plane....can you imagine what a retro LH paintjob would look like on it? It really would look like a 707...at least from the wings forward.

      Thanks again Jennings for your artwork...it is beautiful!

      Now....for those Roden Convairs…

      The Zvezda 737-700 has been announced, kit number 7027. The decal is for a United States of America C-40B.

      So many good things in this post: not only Jennings' helpful diagrams and comparison profiles, but the good news that the 737-700 is on the way.

      I remember taking a flight from Atlanta to Phoenix on Delta 15 years ago this month - four hours, non-stop, on a 737-800. That's the moment it dawned on me that the 737, which started out as little short-range aircraft, had grown into the modern 707. It was a realization, that's for sure.

      That would be a really nice looking jet. Too bad they don't paint em like that anymore.

      Almost not the same aircraft!!!! Those -100 engine inlets must by less than 25% of the max's inlet area.

      Wow.

      The 'Sun King' shot is making me feel very, very, very old!

      Great memories.

      Thank you for that, Jennings. i still need to plan a trip down to see you.

      Hi Jennings,

      Great illustrations, BTW can you show me a comparison between B-757 and MAX10 which was intended to replace B-757?

      Actually Monarch's was very similar to this! I created this (or a 757-200) a couple of years before Monarch changed their livery. I posted it on that fantasy airliner web site and I think someone may have derived "inspiration" on the Monarch scheme from what they saw there.
