    Default North American P-51 Mustang

    Found inside some junk mail catalog, and funny because it was like a salt-and-pepper shakers catalog or something.

    The scale wasn't noted, ad it's pricey, but the quality appears real good.

    And from here you can calculate the scale. The original wingspan was 37 feet (444 inches):

    The model is 29 inches.

    So about a 1:15 scale.

    While that *IS* cool, it's pretty plain jane for my tastes and given the price. No paint or color, unless you just liked the bare look or could customize it to your liking...

    I know what you mean.

    Detail included the sliding canopy, and operational landing gear which says a lot about the quality. But yeah, painting isn't part of the build, you're right.
