TOPIC: Broplan 1/72 vac. ATR 42 300

Broplan 1/72 vac. ATR 42 300 23 Jun 2019 18:04 #1

Already in progress...If anyone wants to see more I can go back and post more images from the beginning.
At this time the fuselage and flying surfaces are all stuck together, a bit of a check revealed insufficient nose weight...Hmmmm :hmmm

Thanks for looking!
A bit more work under the model...
trying to make the gear opening a bit more realistic...not so much accurate just busier.

Thanks a lot!!
Took a lot of nerve and tongue biting to get this far on this one. I'm hoping I'm over the hump now with fuselage closed up and wings on. Arctic Decals is working on the livery for it. I was hoping to have and build the resin kit from Scratchaeronautics but they've apparently closed up shop...with my pre-payment for a couple of kits in pocket. Live n learn.

Great job Chris.
What company, did Time Air operate those? Inter Canadian ran them into here, out of Montreal. As a pax I always preferred the ATR to the -8. I found it quieter, and the InterCan ones had the Recaroh leather seats, better than the upholstered 2x4's of Jazz. When we redid the interior of our F-27, Field Calgary supplied the same seats.

Hi James
Thanks for the encouragement.
This will be in my employers colors, Westwind Aviation. I have another in the stash, a 72-500 that I also plan on cutting down to a 42-300 as well (thinking I would bugger this one up, I bought 2...smrt hey?) But now Broplan does a 42 series so maybe I'll just order that and save a bunch of cutting and splicing.
The surface of the kit is not as smooth as I would have expected, I'm using Tamiya putty like an auto body filler, filling dents and scratches.
If all goes well I may build 3 of the 4 that are still in service, we lost C-GWEA in December 2017 at Fon Du Lac Sask.
