For anybody who is interested this is the decal sheet I created for this model. It was a bit hit and miss trying to colour match the gold which is on this livery.
After applying them the belly was painted blue to complete the underside.

Another lovely custom ATR.

How about a British World ATR72?

It's a cracking custom there mate. I actually saw my first ATR42-500 come into Heathrow at the weekend under the Loganair livery. Fantastic little plane!

This aircraft G-ISLF also flew in Flybe colours and was a Herpa production.

That's superb. See these quite often going into Southampton.

Nice custom model.

Question out of curiousity: I think you've done a few and I see the ATR donor models appear to have incorrectly shaped, too tall v.tails, but your artwork appears to be taken from the real thing, i.e. resembles the correct shapes. How do you fit them to the models?

I just recently drew some artwork and needed to adjust as the kit was incorrectly shaped which is quite a pain.
