American Eagle ATR 72-200


American Eagle ATR 72-200

This ATR 72-212 was built for Simmons Airlines March 1993 and operated for American Eagle. In May 1998, it was transferred to American Eagle. Four years later, in October 2002, it was transferred to Executive Airlines. In March 2013, it was stored in Blytheville, AR. Six months later, in August 2013, it was sold to FedEx and converted to a cargo aircraft. It has since been scraped.

    Ok.

    Problems:
    Templates:
    - Use Med. templates. Always use Med. templates. Never use non-Med templates unless they don’t exist for the desired aircraft or an improved version is available.

    Details:
    - Main titles:
    - Too large
    - Not spaced far enough apart
    - Too far aft
    - Reg:
    - Too far forward
    - Incorrect font
    - Flag:
    - Too small
    - Too low
    - Too far forward
    - Logo:
    - May be too large but it’s hard to tell with the shoddy accuracy of the template
    - Backwards
    - Leading edge of the wing should be aligned with the rudder

    Source: various photos and I also have a model of this aircraft in this livery

    All that said, I doubt going to fix this, so unless you do start fixing these issues, it’d be nice for you to not clutter the gallery.

    I’ve given you the tools you need, use them! Hope this helps.

    I don't like Med templates, there too hard to paint.

    But they are more detailed and are generally better than most templates out there (definitely better than Norebbo ones)

    but the Norebbo templates are a lot easier to paint, so I still prefer them

    Lemme ask you, what kind of design software are you using?

    MS Paint for the Norebbo templates and freephototool.com for Med's

    I'd recommend using sketchbook, it's free, easy, and great for beginners, also use med templates.

    GIMP is also free and not hard to use, it's what I use for my liveries

    So is paint.NET

    etc etc

    I've never heard of sketchbook, how do I get it?
