Patriotic Parade Prop: mid 20th century, this foam and plastic model P-51 Mustang Fighter Plane is signed by 12 members of the famed Tuskegee Airmen. A metal piece is embedded in the belly of the plane, where it must have been attached to a rod for parade purposes. In good cosmetic condition, given its age and manufacture. Some obvious wear and tear is present. The propeller is somewhat loose. One of the signatures is somewhat smudged and another was signed using a marker clearly running out of ink. From propeller to tail fin measures approximately 32". Wingspan measures approximately 36". Large shipping item. Please inquire regarding shipping rates prior to bidding.
