Default Ryanair ATR 42

Ryanair was founded in 1984 as "Danren Enterprises" by Christopher Ryan, Liam Lonergan (owner of Irish travel agent Club Travel), and Irish businessman Tony Ryan, founder of Guinness Peat Aviation. The airline was shortly renamed "Ryanair". It began operations in 1985 flying a 15-seat Embraer Bandeirante turboprop aircraft between Waterford and Gatwick Airport. In September 1988 the ATR 42-300 EI-BXR was added to the fleet.
The donor model(a 600 series) had 6 bladed props but the 300 series has 4 bladed props. To overcome this issue I made some “spinners”, but the got hold of a couple of 4 bladed props. Which do you prefer?

Perhaps spinners look better whe displayed on its stand.

Another nice custom. Hard to believe Ryanair started with a Bandit & this ATR! Dare I say a more, easier creation than some? Not keen on the discs,
I know it tries to replicate spinning props but to me just looks like plastic discs attached. That said, they do look better when model is displayed on
the stand but I would stick with props especially as you have done correct ones.

Very nice.

If you have the props, I think it is a better option.

A very nice job! Personally I prefer either prop blades of just spinners. Not keen on the discs. I can also remember seeing a Ryanair HS748 operating in and out of Stansted many years ago.
