Post war, retro fit, hanky panky thru out...in my opinion.
its been got at.
Hello , you are quite right that this has been messed with , if you look closely at the interior picture you can see that the "over-paint" is directly on top of chipped areas, I cannot see that on the outer shell anywhere so I guess the "faker" did not pay enough attention to the job in hand! Oh I'm not keen on the decal either and the draw string is not original. Leon.

The decal is bad.
Modern printed water slide decal - note the thin black lines separating feathers etc.... not what you would see on any original.
