Default CPA L-188 Electra

Hi all.
Recently got this beautiful Cathay Pacific Airways model 1959 livery.
Haven’t seen any CPA Electra before, normally KLM, Eastern are found. In my opinion this is a rare model, it has registration VR-HFO.
I am into DFM, don’t know if this is a Raise up, Osgaard, or Verkuyl.
Any idea of model makers ?

Looks RaiseUp to me. I had a KLM one awhile back. Verkuyl was the name of the modeller at RaiseUp.

It's a Raise Up Model. Very rare,

Once restored, I'm sure that it will look great!
