As of today, there's no Python GUI builder comparable to VB 6.

There are some like QtDesigner or wxGlade, but they either don't 
generate Python code directly or they can only be used if you know the 
underlying toolkit good enough to create the GUI yourself. You may try 
out some, but I can almost guarantee you that you will come to the same 
If you want a GUI, create it yourself using either wxPython or PyQt.

For engineering applications that's probably the weakest point that 
Python has.
It's holding back a lot of people...

Well, for most measurement or control software a GUI is not really 
needed, but still people want it.
