This Boeing 737 is 14 studs wide and to scale with LEGO minifigures. Unfortunately minifigs tend to be a bit wide and chubby in proportion to a normal human, so I can only fit 2 seats on each side of the aisle instead of the normal 3. I still have to finish my initial engine design before I add an engine to the right wing. The fusilage is more than halfway complete at this point, but I still have to order more odds and ends off of bricklink to finish up various sections.
The wing flaps fold, the wheels are geared to fold in simutaneously, the wheel spokes lock in place, the doors open, and varios parts of the roof lift off. I am attempting to make every part functional, to scale and as perfectly accurate of an exterior and interior that I can possibly make. The wing design is rather unique, as I was largely unsatisfied with the traditional idea of using "plated wings". After fiddling around a bit, I established the center of gravity of the wings, painstakingly inserted them in at an angle, and attached them using technic pieces. The result are nice, smooth wings that protrude at just the perfect angle, while being able to support the engines and eventually other underneath attachments. The interior cockpit design is one of my older ones, thus it is temporarily in place until I make a better one after finishing the exterior, which is my primary focus for now.

Are those panels at the top of the cabin windows painted white?
Nothing is painted, though I changed the entire thing since then anyway--to be smoother and more accurate. It could just be the bad camera angles and lighting that you see. I'll upload newer pics eventually though.

NICE! One suggestion, though. The top of the cabin isn't high enough, making an oval. But I probably couldn't do something that awesome, so who am I to judge..... Can't wait to see it finished!
I fixed the shape in my newer version so it is virtually studless and matches the real one more accurately. It is now oval-shaped, like in a real 737 fuselage.
