J-066 is used by the Royal Netherlands Air Force for the test and evaluation of the release of various weapons, missiles, fuel tanks, etc.
On test aircraft, all non-standard internal wiring ('jumpers') are coloured orange, so this jet acquired the nickname "Orange Jumper", which explains the kangaroo on its tail.
A modified Orpheus Pod with additional instruments is often seen mounted on the centerline pylon and the special painted fueltanks make it a very coloured model.

There's one full colour instruction sheet, a full set of reinforcement plates and one Orpheus Pod is included in this set. The decals are available in two scales.

(link with steps & tips how to apply these reinforcement plates)

This sheet is also available in 1/48.

You can buy this decal sheet directly from the Daco Products website.
