No, no color photos. The planes were pretty "plain". Silver overall
with large block letters on the sides and top wing, like typical
european registry G-BEAK that sort of thing. The smake system pipes
ran from the manifolds all along the fuse sides and joined at the rear.
( Could be done fake on one side, and light plastic tube on the other.)

I was looking for some stuff for someone else and came across an SE-5 from 56
squadron with PC-10 wings and stab, but the entire fuse and rudder,fin were
bright red. There's a logo "schweihunt" on the nose.
