Don't forget the K├╝chemann 'carrots' on the wing's trailing edge as fitted at the later production models!

This sample machine was the first one to have anti flash white camouflage, even anti glare was painted over. Question- in attach is one dark painted Valiant, with something protruded from wing trailing edge. Any idea what that could be?
