NOTE:  (1) The “Δ179” is an old model that I repaint it according to a photo and a drawing of TAXART (member of modelclub.gr). At the time I first assembled this model, I had sanded the bubbles on the nose because of wrong information about the differences between MB151 & 152. So, for the correct nose see the «Δ173» above.  (2) Some areas of the above aircrafts are clear visible on photos. But some other areas have been painted in a hypothetical scheme
