  1. In step one you will draw the nose, top of the fuselage and the vertical stabilizer. Start on the left side of the paper and draw a small, curved line for the nose, then continue the line until angling sharply up and back down for the vertical stabilizer. first step drawing top of airplane
  2. In step two you will begin drawing the bottom of the fuselage and one horizontal stabilizer at the rear of the aircraft. Starting on the left side of the paper, draw a slightly curved line to create the bottom of the fuselage. Then move to the rear of the aircraft and finish drawing the top of the fuselage under the vertical stabilizer, round the corner, and draw a horizontal stabilizer as shown.add tail fin to airplane drawing
  3. In step 3 you will finish drawing the fuselage and draw the wings. Starting where you left off at the bottom of the fuselage, extend a straight line out at an angle, turn the corner and draw a straight line back to the aircraft. Notice how the wing is wider at the fuselage and narrower at the end. Find the point across from the wing you just drew and draw the opposite wing. The second wing should be smaller to show perspective. After wings are completed, finish drawing the bottom of the fuselage as shown.add wings to airplane drawing
  4. In step four, draw the cockpit windshield and 9 small windows. To draw the cockpit window draw a curved line out, up and back in to the front of the aircraft, like a sideways, curvy U. Finally draw 9 circular windows descending in size along the side of the aircraft.add windshield and window to airplane drawing easy
  5. In this step, draw the 3 visible turbine engines mounted on the wings. Represent the engines by dropping oval shapes off the wings and then adding details inside and adding connecting lines on the bottoms.add engines to bottom of wing for the easy airplane drawing
  6. In the last step, add the final details like a door, wing and stabilizer details. Firstly, sketch a rounded rectangular door with a round knob between the cockpit windshield and passenger windows. Similarly, add a detail line near the edge of the left wing. Likewise, add a detail line on the vertical stabilizer. Finally, you have drawn your very own airplane!add final detail including door for airplane drawing
