I want to build a 1/48 S29C Tunnan, using the Maestro Models S29C conversion.
Considering all the bad reviews I have read about the AZ Models 1/48 Tunnan kits, does anybody know if the Maestro Models 1/48 S29C conversion will fit on the Pilot Replicas 1/48 Tunnan kit(s)? I am mainly concerned with the lower camera bay part(s).
Since the Pilot Replicas website is effectively shut down, II really doubt they will come out with a 1/48 S29C kit, in my lifetime.

Pilot Replicas kit is a F-model with afterburner which would be wrong for a S29C. But there is an Austrian recce nose to be found for it.

I see by the comments on the Maestro J29Ö Tunnan recce conversion, that the set was initially made for the AZ models J29 but it turns out that with very little extra effort, it will also fit the Pilot replicas kit.
Unfortunately, I have been unable to find even a single photo of an Austrian J29Ö Tunnan, much less any 1/48 decals for such a plane.😱
I have no intention of buying the kit and conversion if I have no way of correctly marking it.

Here is one with cameras:

I Found more pictures of it when I converted my 1/72 kit. I had problems finding it now. I made the mistake to search for J29Ö but it is a J29F.  It was the Draken that got the Ö suffix

Thanks for the link to the great photo, especially with the unit insignia in color.
I ordered the Pilot Replicas Austrian J29F kit and the Maestro Models J29Ö conversion last week.
