J-066 "Orange Jumper"
RNLAF Test aircraft
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.
The decals are available in two scales.
There's one full colour instruction sheet, a full
set of reinforcement plates and one Orpheus Pod is included in
