Thumbs up 1:200 JC Wings Fokker F-50 SAS Commuter (XX2052)

Another arrival today, it's the fifth (5) model of the expected seven.

It's the JC Wings Fokker Friendship F-50 in SAS Commuter livery (Reg: LN-RNC). Model number XX2052.

This is my very first Fokker Friendship model I've ever had in my collection. It's a small model, but quite well detailed for its size. It has some plastic components [stabilizers] .

Pictures are worth more than thousand words, so below are a few pictures from different angles.

Nice addition.

Credit where credit is due, Herpa got the F.50 spot on!

Thats a stunner! Beautiful model and indeed it looks good down to the details (from a glimpse).

I do apologize in advance, but I just love this aircraft. So, just one small thing I would like to mention: Marketed as 'Fokker 50', or sometimes referred to as 'Fokker 50-100', on the type certificate the aircraft officially was named 'F27 Mark 50', the name 'Friendship' was omitted with the introduction of the new generation in 1985. In fact, both prototypes were F27-500 aircraft equipped with Pratt & Whitney turboprop engines with six-bladed propellers, updated systems and cockpit instrumentation, change from pneumatic to hydraulic systems and addition of electronic engine and propeller controls and an electronic flight instrument system (EFIS) and integrated warning system.

The first Fokker 50 prototype was very well recognizable because it did not have the double number of smaller and squared windows, but sported the original 11 oval window of the streched Friendship. Only military variants of the Fokker 50 received a name, like 'Fokker 50 Maritime Enforcer' and 'Fokker 50 Black Crow'.

The Fokker 60, to make matters even more complex' was officially known as F27 Mark 0604. The Fokker 70 as Fokker F28 Mark 070 and subsequent Fokker 100 as Fokker F28 Mark 0100
The designators F-27 and FH-227 (with a dash), refers to a license-built Friendship versions manufactured by Fairchild Hiller in the United States. Although visually identical, these aircraft were different to the Dutch build aircraft on detailed level. Also the name 'Friendship' never oficially applied to the US build aircraft.

Just for the record

cheers, VJ

I have a problem with the cross section of the F 50 forward fuselage ...

I have two F 50s made by Herpa and clearly, the forward fuselage has a circular cross section.
On the real aircraft, from the pictures I can see it is ovoid ...

Despite this, the F 50 models are very nice.
This was corrected on the F 27 models.

In order not to hijack this threat I'll go into detail about the fuselage cross-section in the Review Friendship threat: https://www.diecastaircraftforum.com...p-1-200-a.html

I stand corrected JP.

There's me thinking someone had made a perfect model

Me too I have this model, it is very nice and well detailed. I'm happy with it, the only doubt I have is about the colour of fuselage. I have the impression that it is not very correct, in my opinion it is a bit too dark. If I put it side by side with my Jet-X SAS DHC 8-400 the difference is evident, and the correct color, in my opinion, is the one of the DHC 8.
