The ATR project

A small project Iím working on since 2 or 3 weeks now : making a replica of a Herpa ATR72 in metal.

First, I disassembled the model made by Herpa.

Then I bought a sort of modelling clay with silicon to make a print of each part : the fuselage, the wings + engines, the tail and the stabilizer. At this point, I donít know how I will make the wheels ans propellers.

With a special metal (some of you knows perhaps what are the soldiers of PRINCE AUGUST, check on google how we do them, thatís the same principle) which have a low point of fusion, I tried to make a first model. I reworked on each parts with a cutter and sandpaper and here is the first looking of the model:





Iím happy with a such result even if it has some defects. Next step will the painting, and to find a way to make propellers and landing gears.

Re: The ATR project

Hop ! will be the first, I already printed the decals. Air CaraÔbes will follow. 3 models are already waiting for the painting but I prefer making a good one before working on the others. I have also the Herpa donor that will be customized too.

Today I tried to make propellers. I have both options so I tried to make a set of each with a product called Liquid FIMO. It becomes solid at 130įC So let’s go into the oven.

They are very fragile, many more than real Herpa one... I’m searching a way (if it’s possible) to make them a bit more rigid.

Re: The ATR project

A first view of how it can look. Maybe strange but not bad in my opinion. The cockpit should be higher I think.

Re: The ATR project

MSN 001 is almost ready for his maiden flight :



First landing at Malefiska International :




(I need to adjust the stab and glue the wings to the body and it will be good for this one
Propellers are a bit strange but I canít do better I think)

Haha thank you ! It can be an option but I don't want. It has more details because of the decals but the mold itself is more coarse than the Herpa one (it's normal, it's a replica.)

Who knows, maybe one day, I will design my own metal injection mold and I will create a company like Herpa !

Landing gears are made with a plastic sheath I usually use for my RC models. I would like to put something grey on them, they would look better.
Wheels under the nose should be higher. I will try to add door too.

Re: The ATR project

Some other pics, you will that all is not perfect at all :



Oh damn, a tail strike ! Because of the metal stab, the model is overweighted at its back.





Under Herpa plastic box :


The angle of the stab... no comment
