>> ref.72105 - Ryan L-17 A/B Navion (US NAVY)

I wonder, is this box (and decals therein?...) supposed to represent a U.S. Army L-17 from this photograph? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ryan_L-17_Navion_on_USS_Leyte_1950.jpg

Or is it a pure what-if markings options?

As far as I know, the L-17 was not used by the U.S.Navy.

There was one used as a demonstrator for a navy trainer competition. I believe that's the same aircraft in the photo you linked. So, not truly a navy aircraft but one tested by them.

Interesting !

Think the wing fuel tanks ?  Make it look different and in Coast Guard markings to.

This is one for me :mail:

Can anyone clarify  or confirm the markings in the bottom illustration (Shark marking)?  Box art has US Air Force whereas  actual decal is US Army- OK easy mistake to make. Painting guide has "Light Green" (NOT OD) over  RED-BROWN (?) for the first example. and LIGHT GREEN over US Gull Grey for the second example (a Warbird)
