Need a second opinion - EDITED -

I know this model is incomplete but I'm wondering if anyone else sees a disproportion in the wing length to engine size/location. I had to use blueprints from Google to shape this up. No, it's not complete. Just looking for a second opinion and advice on how to change it if change is needed.

Yes engines look too small. What aircraft is this?

Quite early photos, but it's good enough progress for an early shot

Surely a 737 Max, it's the Winglets that give it away

Yeah it's a 737 MAX lol. Are the wings at the wrong angle? I can't figure out the wing length to engine size proportions. I compared this to reference images and it all appear to be correct but then I remove the reference and.... It just looks weird. What do I need to do different?

Done a bit looking, you may need the engines to fuselage ratio to be (perhaps?) in 10:21 scale in terms of diameter, I guess that would help fix it a bit

Well, I'm using Blender to model. I'm not sure how the ratio would translate tbh. I wish I knew more or had a proper reference sheet to go by but alas, I do not.

There are plenty of reference resources out there with diagrams etc

One small example of dimentions

The problem with some reference images is how the various perspectives don't match in size. For example on the image that has 737 MAX 8 the wings on the plane in the top right of that image don't match the wing length of the picture on the center left.

I just can't find anything that is accurate as far as proportions go.
