Cool! The Tunnan looks a lot slimmer with that paint-job.

 

May I suggest an addition: black or dark grey anti-reflection paint on the upper nose. Technically it is not necessary, but it might look better I think, especially in combination with a black or dark grey cockpit framework. Something like that (I only mean the black upper nose):
