I dare to say it's not. At least not according to the photograps I used as reference. These engines and pylons have right side and left side - and they aren't identical (not mentioning that apparerntly there was some difference between prototype and series models). :P ;)
Fair enough, that would explain the discrepancies. :)

Another small addition. Based on Little Bird's work. (needed eventually for Polish Wings, but besides that I'm not planning to do any other paint schemes at all)

Very good work on the Gulfstream and Boeings, renewed blue color of LOT is much more realistic! Thank you.

Small update for one of the older entries in the Polish Wings thread (and already inserted in the appropriate place: viewtopic.php?p=87610#p87610 ). :)

Boeings 737 of the 'Classic' series purchased by LOT in the 1990s were modern planes when bought, but passing of time is merciless and eventually the time has come to seek their replacement. Since much of the LOT's fleets are Boeing's, it was decided to buy more current-generation 737's. As a stop-gap measure, 4 second-hand 737-89P (800NG-series) were obtained in 2017 (SP-LWA to -LWD) and delivered in May-June. As the intended replacement model the 737-MAX8 was chosen, with 6 ordered and options for 5 more. First two aircraft were delivered in December 2017 (registration numbers beginning with SP-LVA).
Additionaly, 3 B737's were purchased for the Air Force as the VIP aircraft. Initial plans called for 2 aircraft, but eventually it was decided to buy 1 B737-86X (for immediate delivery) and 2 B737-800BBJ2 (to be delivered in 2020). First aircraft arrived in Poland, in 1 Baza Lotnictwa Transportowego at Warszawa-Okęcie on 15 November 2017 and was given individual name "Marszałek Józef Piłsudski" and special commemorative painting for the 100th Anniversary of the Polish Independence (1918-2018).

Great work eswube. How in hell you'll do those faces? And don't say "pixel by pixel"... :D I mean; to me those are just faces but I believe that every Polish recognize those :?:

Really nice !
One question: Is there a special reason for the first two passenger windows being bright blue (the first two right behind the cockpit windows, right on the LOT's "T") whereas other windows are darker on LOT Polish Airways B737's ? :)

Thankfully I didn't had to made them pixel-by-pixel (though I was afraid I might have to do it). Managed to find the photograph of the plane made at a relatively right angle, scaled it and saved in 16-color format and simply erased everything in "wrong" colors. But the "100 years of..." writing was done pixel-by-pixel. ;)
Those pictured are prominent contributors to regaining of Poland's independence in 1918.
Along the leading edge, (top-left to bottom-right) are: Józef Piłsudski, Ignacy Jan Paderewski and Roman Dmowski;
Along the flag cheatline (top-left to bottom-right) are: Ignacy Daszyński, Wojciech Korfanty and Wincenty Witos.

Lol, no, these windows are just a very strange error. :?
