Default EuroManx BAe 146

EuroManx was a Manx airline based at Ronaldsway Airport on the Isle of Man in the UK and operated scheduled domestic passenger services as well as business charters between August 2002 and May 2008. It had no relationship with Manx Airlines.

Thank you Captain, but did you spot the inaccuracy?

Another great custom.

I did note EI-CPJ was an Avro RJ70

What was donor model? As I didn't think a short 146 had been done with a stand/hole.

To quote Abraham Lincoln,
“You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time”

I did my best to disguise a BAe 146-200 donor model as an RJ70. Slightly enlarged the windows and doors to make the larger 200 series look smaller.
I resisted getting out my hacksaw to reduce the donor(Virgin City Link) length by 10mm.

Well you did ask . You did a pretty good job of disguising it. The number of windows before the wing etc.
It was the use of a stand that actually gave it away to me.

I agree a hacksaw might not have been a good idea. I did think of doing something similar to get a DC-7B!
