This is for the P-8A but assume MRA.1 is the same. Bulges appear to be 180 KVa generators?

I couldn't help but notice that the lavatory and galley have been positioned as far from the crew rest area as physically possible  ;D

Hmmm! I was going to say I need a decal set of that, but then, how hard would it be to make a lightning bolt like that and colour it grey ---  ;D

I think it would be near to impossible to get a realistic paint job on one of these no matter what the scale. Just the sunlight hitting the three aircraft at slightly different angles makes the same part appear a different color. Plus all those jagged lines around all the different openings would drive me off the deep end. Great pics, thanks for posting it.
