Help Identify Merckx Corsa Extra.

I bought this Merckx Corsa Extra In 94, used. It has full C record and a paint job I don't see often. White front fading to blue metal flake about halfway. I thought it was a 89', maybe 10th anniversary model. Now I don't know. The serial number is B 1877. It has a 9 X on the other side of the BB. It's made of SLX.
Anybody can help?? I appreciate it.

Looks like one of the early Panasonic Team colours.

It's not the 10th anniversary bike. I helped my friend get one just yesterday in fact. I'll post pic of it if he lets me take some pics of it. Your bike looks awesome either way! That fading paint job I've seen here in Belgium a a lot on mid 80s bikes.

Looks more like the color scheme Intral-Renting rode in 1988.

Looks too small for you. I think it would fit me, though
