In any case, a military aircraft shouldn't be shiny or reflective, it is not a car anyway, a shiny object in the sky or land is not a good thing military wise. The one in the middle looks more like a real product ready for the duty.It was stated that AESA radar would be integrated into the Akinci. If you pay attention to the other prototypes, they have a one piece body. The radome of the prototope in the middle has a fragmented structure(Satcom integrated). A removable radome for the integration and maintenance of the radar.

Almost the whole body has a matte finish. I don't think it's incomplete painting because they've painted the decals over it. Might be to reduce reflections from the sun.does the one akinci in the middle have a different painting or nose or incompleate painting? it looks like it lacks somepolishment on all pictures..
