Alan.

I got to do some searching but i may have something on one of my computers. However, these pics may show the color scheme after the SLAF got them. By the way, they were turned over to the Sri Lanka Air Force sometime in the 70s. I have seen them in the 80s,90s and for the last time in 2002. They were flown in white top fuselage with grey underbelly and a red cheat line. The SLAF roundel with bars were on the fuselage and the fin flash. Currently they are preserved at the SLAF Air Force Museum. One of them has been garishly painted in dark blue and opened up so that kids can play in it. The second one is in fine shape and looks ready to fly. The tail numbers are CR-821 and CR-822...just thought i would give you this info for reference.

Great shot I am commissioning a model for Sri Lankan Airlines and wonder if you have it in digital form, I suspect not.

Many thanks for your reply

Alan,
it is a slide being auctioned. You could buy it, or possibly contact the seller and ask him to scan it for you?
