Thanks.
The gear doors were identical, there were some details that didn't fit though.

For me the word "bet" appears blue and links to a gambling site?
Dunno why and I didn't plan it.

SAAB P-21, another completely obvious, everybody knows it, and not been posted before!

Just being slow (me, that is).

Had to look elsewhere (for designation, this time).

Thanks mate, but the windows on mine are square? (actually, I think my eyes are failing me).

Anyway, sorry, but I have to make it Open House.
