Nice work! It would be great to see this under a nice photo flash setup. The color seems a bit off and I bet the model looks better than these photos.

Thanks, my iPhone takes better pics than my DSLR maybe next time I'll go that way

Lovely work, the scheme is a real eye catcher.

Aha, that is a nice paintscheme, and probably easier to apply than the damn yellow.

Thanks!
Lol the white is areal bugger to try to cover that glow in the dark yellow plastic!

Hi Chris! Nice work on the old Heller -215! Saw the real thing at La Ronge a couple years back. This is another one I want to do on my 'one day' list.

Hey, nice plane Chris! Are the decals home-made or stencils?
20. July, 22:21
Chris Parsons
It's a great kit and easy build, kit decals very nice but strong "sol" needed to get them down properly over those rivets.
Thanks!

Very interesting project. Did you use two kits ? And where did you get the propellers and the beautyful livery?
23. April, 13:00
Chris Parsons
Thanks! I did use two kits, I had cut the nose off one kit to use as a mule to make a more accurate shape for a build on floats (seen here) and had put the wrong landing gear on a second kit which left two useless kits. I decided to bash them together (after first drawing up a plan) and came up with this. The props are scratched from .010" sheet plastic and the livery was copied from a picture of a twin otter in Viking colours from the Viking site, drawn on paper, transferred to Frisket film stuck to the model and painted on. The side windows are "Scotch" brand clear tape cut to squares and stuck on.
Great fun!

Looks great Chris! An interesting 'what-if' if De Havillland Canada hadn't develop the Dash 7.

Extremely well done..👍👍👍

Nice. 🙂 Is that decal or paint on the propellers?

A tip of mine, would be to scrape and/or sand the rear edges of the wing surfaces, to make them look thinner, as plastic edges on kits tend to be out of scale.
7. March, 07:42
Chris Parsons
Thanks!
I'll keep that tip in mind when I do another! The props are painted.

Nice job... Where did you get the decals? Those are great!
23. January, 04:45
Chris Parsons
Thanks!
The decals are custom made by a very talented fellow named Mika Jernfors at Arctic Decals. It's worth building a kit just to use his decals!

Chris Parsons
Thanks! This kit has beaten me on 3 previous attempts, nice to finally finish one
22. January, 15:47
Łukasz Gliński
Wow, what went wrong? Asking as I'm going to start mine one day.
22. January, 15:49
Chris Parsons
Mostly my fault type problems, first one I used the wrong landing gear fairings for the version I wanted to build (watch that, the instructions aren't really clear)I tossed the kit but saved some parts. On the second one I built, the wings were warped (like helicopter blades, to be honest all these kits have the problem but I missed it until the wings were built. I trashed the kit. The third kit was going along ok until I tried to fix the engine nacelles where they join the wing (very poor fit) I sanded them smooth but ended up with banana shaped engines...tossed the kit as well. This kit, I put brass spars in the wings, used pics of the prototype to locate and build the landing gear fairings, used wings and engines from this and previous kits to get good engine fits. I also narrowed the windshield "a" pillars which if left alone appear too wide. I had to make my own windshield because narrowing the pillars makes the kit windshield too small to fit, I also added two cabin side windows (1 each side) built a full interior and added weight to the nose (otherwise it tips back unrealistically on the floats)
Looking at all this I guess I did quite a bit to it...
22. January, 16:23
Chris Parsons
Oh yes, the wing stall fences...too thick and too far inboard.
22. January, 16:25
Łukasz Gliński
That's an impressive list. I have some add-ons, like undercarriage fairings and new cockpit - let's see if they help. Will use your info for reference for sure 👍 Thx

Nice work Chris, I assume the resin is your own stuff. Brave man building a Broplan kit!
4. May 2020, 03:59
Chris Parsons
Hahaha thanks Ray. It's been 3 years in the making! I'm gonna push through to the bitter end now if I can. I made resin engines and main gear sponson....I can't recommend this kit
4. May 2020, 04:04
Łukasz Gliński
It's Broplan, but what can you expect, while there's no competition in 1.72 🙁
Great job anyway, looking forward to seeing it completed 👍

Zbynek Honzik
You are a real brave man Chris! Congratulations on completing the model! This is the first time I see a completed ATR from Broplan. You did a great job, while Broplan should be really ashamed of what they made.

17. May 2020, 08:55
Chris Parsons
Hahaha! Thanks guys! It took all my energy to get it done, breaking it back down to re-do stuff as I went Along. Once I got the sponson fitted and quit cracking open seams I quickly painted it. I bought 2 thinking I'd do a couple....not sure I will now though, it's a tough nut!

Looks great, I have one in stash too. Looks like you replaced the wheels?
12. December 2020, 21:01

Thanks mates!
This was given to me by a local club member, it's a very nice kit!
I made the wheels from a couple of discs of plastic, solder for the tires and my wife's hair (salvaged from her hair brush) for the rigging and wheel spokes.

I agree, when it comes to scale models your particular project does come very close to original. The metal sheen looks very convincing and almost gives the model a "heavy" look when you at it for some time - great job! 👍
