Yes, I fully agree with that.    Here are images of a test Jae Eon done today on the materials. Note how the surfaces are not fully flat, should work really well with the lighting engine. 

First export to MFS. Some tweaks to do but we love how the surfaces work. JaeEon is doing great work. It's now up to Anne to show us that here interior work is even better.

Perhaps anybody has any suggestion about what versions and liveries we should make? 

The first person to say 'glass cockpit' is banned for ever. We really want this to be a old style sturdy aircraft.

I think a loganair or flybe livery would be great for Barra, and an Isle of Scilly Skybus, model wise, the float version would be great for using around the Maldives :)

Gl...

 

Ok Ok. 

 

I guess you folks wouldn't either put a 400 livery on a 300. First Flying has a couple of lovely liveries going to Okinawaì and just like the CRJ, Japan is pretty much the perfect environment for the Twin Otter, with the world update, the limited footprint, and the many islands.

If you don't do it, I'll take matters in my own hands anyway :P

 

Now, that I bowed to my weeb flyer Japan obsession, and hoping I don't get banned, here's some real 300's for those much-needed challenging landing at Lukla, Nepal.

 

Tara Air

Nepal Airlines

There was also Yeti airlines but that one crashed... so maybe not. >_>

I'm actually being forgetful. No need to go into the realm of 400's to go to Japan, as long as historical liveries are an option (and looking at the CRJ, they may be?)

 

Air Hokkaido (a subsidiary of ANA) operated two Twin Otter 300's (That's literally all they had lol, which is hilarious for a division of a giant like ANA). JA8797 survived the Vietnam war, and JA8799

If you want to go even more historical, JA8799 was owned by Nihon Kinkyori Airways before, and had a different livery.

 

https://flyteam.jp/photo/2234514

 

It then passed on to Air Nippon 

 

https://flyteam.jp/photo/1718360

 

Three liveries for the same aircraft, and they all look great :D

 

Then there is JA8796, JA8808, and JA8790 and which were flown by Ryukyu Air Commuter.

Some of the Ryukyu Air commuter aircraft went to Nansei Koku (Southwest Air Lines) that then became the current Japan Transocean Air.

Basically, Twin Otters were used in Japan to fly to the islands of the extreme south around Okinawa, and the extreme north in Hokkaido, which is fascinating. 

 

These are all 300s, so while they're historical and not current, they may fit the bill nicely.

You definitely have to do the Winair livery. Please, please, please. It's my favorite.

Now that I'm going down into the rabbit hole of research, you should absolutely do JA8799 in some form. He's an absolute soldier. 

 

He started at Nihon Kinkyori Airways in Nagoya in 1974, then he went to fly in the extreme North of Japan with Air Nippon and Air Hokkaido, then he moved to Indonesia flying for Trigana Air Service and  Transwisata Prima Aviation, passing by a couple of charterers/leasers in Denmark and Switzerland (where he flew for the Red Cross as HB-LUM), and it's still flying today after getting floats in the Maldives as 8Q-ISH for Maldivian.

 

https://flightaware.com/live/flight/8QISH

 

Nearly fifty years in service across Japan, south-east Asia, Europe and the Indian Ocean and this immortal aircraft is still going. Temperate, Cold, Hot, Tropical, mountain, ocean, snow... he's seen it all. 

 

And then people wonder why I love Twin Otters.

You, my friend, speak my language. It is a wonder she is still flying.

Maybe a DHC6-300 Standard Wheel SKYDIVE (3 blade and 4 blade)

 

would require some extra work, the jump roll up door, and instead of seats two benches on either side of the interior.

I have flown on a twin otter a few times in Labrador (C-GNQY) which I think is still in Operation with Labrador Air. It is on floats.

I would love to see a Nordic Seaplanes livery! It's, as far as I know, the only seaplane in Denmark (Maybe even in Scandinavia!?) with a regularly scheduled flightplan. Flying between Copenhagen and Aarhus!
