Luxair Fokker 50 (1/500)

Hello!

Here I'll show you some Luxair Fokker 50 in various liveries.
All are based on Herpa mould, scale 1/500.

In June 1988, the Luxair board of management ordered 3 brand-new Fokker 50 (plus 3 options) as a replacement for their ageing fleet of Fokker 27. The F50 looked very similar to the F27 but had a bigger cabin with 50 seats, new engines and a much lower noise level for passengers. The first Fokker F50 (LX-LGC) arrived in Luxembourg on 3th November 1989. One option was converted which brought the Luxair fleet to 4 F50 in the 1990s (LGB/C/D/E).
The final Fokker 50 was delivered in 1997, concluding the production of Fokker aircraft due to its bankruptcy. A total of 213 Fokker 50 had been delivered since 1987.
On 6th of November 2002, Luxair-flight LG 9642 (LX-LGB) operating from Berlin-Tempelhof to Luxembourg crashed during final approach in low visibility conditions. The investigation found that a series of non-standard actions resulted in severe loss of airspeed due to the accidental selection of the propellers into reverse pitch. Contributing to the accident were errors concerning the implementation of a safety recommendation which had been made by the manufacturer to Fokker 50 operators and pilot errors during approach.
With delivery of the ERJ135s in 2005, Luxair operated its final Fokker 50 flight in March 2005 to Munich via Saarbrücken, after 42 years of Fokker operations. The 3 Fokker 50s were sold to Skyways and Amapola Flyg.

The first one I finished is LX-LGD in white colours with black Luxair titles (used from 2000-2003).
It was named "Prince Félix", and flew with Luxair from 1989-2005.

That's a great custom, I'm sure you'll be happy to add this important Luxair model to your fleet. Are you gonna add wheel hubs? I did it to my Fokker 70s and it looks just so much better!

Yes, the wheel hubs will be printed with my next decal sheet.

Re: Luxair Fokker 50 (1/500)

Very nice little bird and nice story of the Fokker 50 in Luxair fleet.
I really like the Fokker 50, I think it's a beautiful turboprop! Actually, Fokker had beautiful planes. Too bad they closed their doors by the end of the 90s.

The models is a little beauty! I would not only suggest the wheel hubs, but also a new cockpit window
