Typical isn't it? I have been to Barra on four occasions in this decade and promised myself that I would one day build the Flybe Twin Otter. I never got round to building the Twin Otter until five months ago -

Then guess what happens? Flybe and LoganAir part company and means a change of livery......

 

26 Decals provided my Flybe decals (http://www.26decals.com/72-115-Flybe-DHC-6-Twin-Otter-laser-decal) so perhaps one day they will do the latest LoganAir version. Means I have to buy another Twin Otter now....

 

Good luck with your search!

First posting requesting help. My grandson was very lucky to fly from Barra by Twin Otter operated by LoganAir. I cannot find any such decals to model this aircraft

 

....

 

Hope the link works it should take you to a photo of Loganair twin otter at Barra airport

Thanks 

Tim

 

There are no decals available for the Twotter in the HIAL scheme.  Two Six Decals do British Airways as well as the Flybe scheme mentioned by Dave C.  S&M Decals (available from AJ Aviation in West Drayton) do a few sheets but again not HIAL.

 

If you're handy with the masking tape it should be possible to paint the basic HIAL livery using Two Six's vinyl window masks but that would still leave you with the problem of sourcing registrations, logos and "Operated by Loganair" titles.

Many thanks for advice sadly confirms my simple research! Will let you know as my model progresses but know as soon as its finished (my other half says put 3 exclamation marks) the decals will be released!!!

I was amazed to know they still use Barra beach as an airport. I thought H&S would have stopped that long ago.

 

I still remember landing there a few times when I was much younger.

Out of curiosity what does "H&S" have to do with anything?  Barra Airport is licensed by the CAA who obviously accept that the beach meets the necessary criteria for the safe operation of small commercial aircraft.
