    B-Manic,

    not only the clean looks but the perfect fit as well.
    But I couldn't resist the temptation of changing it into a version of the Dutch naval aviation service(MLD)

    I agree, very nice fit.

    Your repaint is great. I have repainted a few aircraft in RCN and RCAF colours. I appreciate that is not as easy as it looks. Thanks for sharing your build.
