Note the long "radar nose" which was installed with both VH-TVN & VH-TVM prior to the actual installation of weather radar. Also the fitting of "Slipper Tanks" to assist endurance over lengthy segments for which the basic aircraft wasn't capable of performing at the time. Scanned from a K64 slide at 4000DPI.
