Regional Airliner CHALLENGE (closed)

240k WinsWings  9 months ago

Now, let's make a medium size passenger plane challenge -

These are called regional airliners, feeder-liner, commuter, and local service, all alternative terms for the same class of flight operations.

regional airliner

A regional or feeder-liner is a small airliner designed to fly up to 100 passengers on short-haul flights, usually feeding larger carriers' airline hubs from small markets. Regional airliners are used for short trips between smaller towns or from a larger city to a smaller city. This class of aircraft is usually flown by the regional airlines.
Ref: Wikipedia

Rules:

1) It can be a jet or a prop.
2) A civilian airliner, which the military could also use. It Should carry under 100 passengers. Examples: ATR42, Fokker-27,
Much smaller planes such as twin-otter and Beechcraft are also welcome.
3) Era - should be any time between the 1940s to modern days.
4) Fictional ones are welcome. But make it believable.
5) Descriptions and photos are highly valued

LIMITS:

1) ALL POSTS MUST BE A SUCCESSOR
You are not running outside the track to get a prize, fair enough?
2) Number of parts: any number is welcome, but keep it under 900 for tech reasons.
3) No special modding. Using XML and Overload is fine.
4) Please make it as realistic as possible - (You can still build memes or egg planes, but that is not to my taste. So I am not judging them for an award or spotlighting them)
5) Up to 3 entries per person. All decent entries will get ONE upvote each. But the only best one will be awarded

JUDGING POINTS:

  • Proportion/accuracy - 10 points
  • Livery and decoration - 10 points
  • Cockpit - 10 points
  • Flight handling - 10 points
  • Historical accuracy, remarkable building techniques, XML, and all other "cool factors" you may add - 10 pt

Awards

  • 10 UPVOTES and two spotlights FOR ALL TOP 3 ENTRIES

  • Every REASONABLE entry will get 1 Upvote shortly after your upload, and notable ones will get one Spotlight too.

  • With my 144K rank, I could spotlight most of you except approximately 10+ users who are above me) Every GOOD entry will get 1 Upvote right away once I sported. I will also follow you if I like your collection.

  • If you don't have enough builds on your posts, I can not upvote! I will not use multiple accounts for upvoting.

    @WinsWings Your planes and designs have always been so awesome and well done, I was wondering if you would be willing to help me by giving feedback on a new airplane I am making. I need design ideas for the exterior, like what patterns and txt I can put using the label part to make it look realistic. Would you be willing?
