Once again, GREAT work BB
Jolly WELL DONE my friend
Now I just can't wait to see MORE please
Be careful what you wish for, because you might get it
First of all, some apologies. I had completely missed the fact that Clonecommander6454 had already done ALL the 747s
last January. seeing no differencies of any sort I've removed my drawings from the previous page. I repost only the 747-400D here as Clone's sported the wingtips of the 747-100/300s and lacked the three extra windows on the upper deck. Work is so minimal -a 5 seconds copy/paste- I don't bother to add my name on it, It would not be deserved. (I admit however that there is something off in those GE engines drawn by Clonecommander, they don't look exaclty like they should and they feel a bit too small, so I might return on them..)
The boeing 747-400D is an high density seating model developed for short-haul, high-volume domestic Japanese flights (568 passengers in a two-class configuration or 660 passengers in a single-class configuration). Lacks the winglets, which would provide minimal benefits on short-haul routes, while adding extra weight and cost, and has extra windows on the upper deck. These allow for extra seating at the rear of the upper deck, where a galley would normally be situated on longer flights.
Next, I took Garlicdesign's A321neo from the Atlantach thread with the intent to turn the original A319/20/21 into the Neos, adding his engines and sharklets, other than revamping the color palette of the A320 drawings to the appearance of a bare-metal plane instead of the white-painted originals. The last touch would be adding the A318 after tweaking the engines of the original A320s.
For this king of job I expected no credit to be added on the A320neos (I would have basically pasted GDs parts onto the originals and nothing more). Then when I thought I was done with everything except the 318 I realized that something did not add up and a quick check revealed that the A319 was actually 11 pixels too short and the A321 14 pixels too long. At first I thought that a sizable scaling error would have voided the whole sheet, but luckily I also realized that the A320 was perfecly scaled and the fuselage dimensions were also correct. So the 11/14 pixel discrepance of the A319 and A321 were only the result of the stretching and shrinking of the A320 during the drawing phase. I've thus corrected the length, also realizing that the A319 had two over wing exits instead of one and that the two middle doors of the A321 were depicted being as big as the front and aft one, which is not the case. Once fixed those issues on both the A320s and A320neos I completed the A318 as planned and called it a day. I humbly believe that a this point I might possibly have done enough work to justify the credit line on the neos as well.
Anyway, I had blabbed too much, it's drawings time.

As a little afterthought, I've noticed that the only mainstream jetliners not represented at all in FD scale are the DC-10/MD-11, the Boeing 727 and the Boeing 777. Basically of my three favourite widebodies (10/11, 747 and 777) two are missing. And of course the 727 is one of my favourite narrowbodies....
