Default Drukair dilemma

I’ve always wanted to try my hand at creating a Royal Bhutan Airlines (Drukair) custom model In 1/200 scale. An Airbus A319 was an early contender but then decided an ATR to be a better option, but here is the dilemma, a 42-500 which is no longer in service, or the current 42-600. The only technical difference between the two is in the cockpit(so I’m told), length, wingspan etc are the same. The only differences are in appearance, but which to do that is the question.

Which of the two do you think has greatest appeal????

Hi Mike, I think November Whisky looks a little more 'put-together' as a livery overall. Although for whatever reason I like Golf Hotel's dragon better.

With RGH it looks like they forgot to paint the rudder

Also prefer the painted engine nacelles on JNW.

‘NW gets my vote if that helps.

Perhaps I’ll do the port side as RGH, and the starboard side JNW, or vice versa.

Never been a fan of models with split personalities. Unless it's like that Lufty/Swiss A310 that actually had it.

Saying that, when displayed on a shelf you only get to see one side and so you can always turn it round for something different.

Still reckon JNW is the way to go.
