Very nice, amazing how many extra gadgets the pressurized photo recce aircraft had. Great modelling reference. It is in remarkably good condition isn’t it!

Marvelous pictures for any PR variants aficionado:
I still feel the PR variants are hardly represented as models.
This series of pictures helps a lot for any modeler who wants to build a good PR.

Any pics of the oxygen tanks behind the seat? That would be nice to have as well. Greedy, I know!
