Default In desperate need of your help

This is Gill Airways ATR 72-200 in 1/200 scale and it’s crying out for a pair of four bladed props. The JC Wings donor was fitted with 6 blades. As you can see I improvised for the photos by making some “spinners”
So if anyone can help I’d be very grateful. I’d like to return the model to its owner in correct spec.

What a coincidence. I’m looking for exactly the same thing. The only donor 1/200 ATR 72’s I can find are the later generation 6 bladed propellor. I want a LOT polish airlines Liveried ATR and of course they operated the earlier generation with 4 bladed propellers.

Why don't you ask Gemini Jet or JC Wings for spare parts?

They should be able to sell you the props you are looking for,

1. Try GJ instead.

2. I am a bit surprised you have not been successful at Herpa. What did they reply?

Herpa advised me that their older 4 blade ATR’ went out of production years ago and they have no spares in stock.

Mike - contact ARD as they have a spare parts box and you may find something suitable in it.

Is it just me or am I the only one who thinks those spinners look great? I think it would be cool to have that option on all propeller models especially when placed on a stand.

I was able to get some extra 777 landing gear through Aviation Megastore in NL before, so they might be another option for spares.

Which contact did you use for Herpa. I need a part for my Premium Boeing 737 Delta. Tried contacting them but no luck...

Was thinking the same thing! Would be an awesome option, along with semi-retracted landing gear!!

Nice to see the Gill come to fruition.

JC Wings have never done a 4 bladed ATR. Herpa did their last 4 bladed ATR42 in 2010. And the last ATR72 in 2012. Having since
resumed releases with the later prop. Gemini did both the Air North ATR42 commission & an ATR72 in 2016 so the 4 bladed props
were still around then. I believe the Gemini is the Herpa model much like their Saab 340.

You may well have to get an old 4 blade ATR, swap props and then use it as a donor for another one?

Four blade props now in place but don’t spin. Took them off a Silver Classics F27, not ideal but they’ll do.
Thank you to those who offered advice.

No offense this is a beautiful model but I like the spinners you made much better.

I concur that these were not bad at all

I'm a 1:400 guy who doesn't often cross over to the west side of town, but I totally agree on these spinners - very sharp and nice work. A perfect alternative, Doug
