Here are the latest 737s to join the Nova Airlines fleet, both fitted wit retractable landing gears.
About this creation
A little late, but here are the first of the summer creations:


The first modified LC3181 737-800 and the new livery 737 are the two new 737 to feature a retractable landing gear, bringing the 737 new gen fleet to 3!


Details of the aircraft main landing gear, with view of the engine, which is less close to the ground then the -700 version.


The aircraft features a similar system as my home made 737s, but I had to find a different system to block the gears when retracted due to the curved underbelly of the aircraft.


The aircraft features a door system in the front.


Interior still has to be modified, for now, this is the business class section, but this might change soon.


Underbelly view of the landing gear system, the center blue part folds out for the gear to retract, then comes back in to keep it in place, shown in the next pictures.




Here's how it looks when folded


Might add another part later


System is a bit more complicated then other 737s, but still easy :)


The aircraft looks nice, the gear are also center of the wing, giving it a very realistic look that no other aircraft has


And now the new livery homemade 737, which is the second homemade 737 to feature the new system


Adds so much detail to the creation, the rest of the fleet will be converted when I can afford to pay for parts.

Landing gear folded


Like the first one, the fuselage holds the wheels in place


There is also less 'open' parts to the interior, making it more realistic


Front view of the system


The engines also hold much better thanks to them being placed 1/2 a stud forward


And final view of the winglet

The airport is coming along nicely, the Maxim metro will now be in the air, but the project is taking longer than expected!

Quoting Sir ABS Very Nice! I Like that now your builds are cleaner and look great. Who did you get the idea for the engines from? ~Sir ABS
Which engines are you talking about? For the 1/2 stud forward, it happened by accident, by misplacing it when it had fallen off in the original configuration. I then noticed how well it held with this new system, so decided to keep it this way
