Did this plane, before it was converted, have winglets? If so, where are they now?

They took them off. Not beneficial for this model.

I cannot answer your question about the winglets, but might be able to help you on the images.

Have you read the text at "Read how to incude links, pictures and smilies!" that is beneath the text field right here? Here you see, that you can enter a picture by using < photoid: 12345 >.

For this picture, you can see the photo ID in the URL. It is: 1156977. So you tag will be: < photoid: 1156977 > and this will result into:

My guess is that they were removed for a reason; maybe they were ineffective with the enlarged fuselage, or the winglets are being redesigned...who knows?
