Movie mod's (there are two in the background, too) for a 1957 German movie "Der Stern von Afrika".

Now, that's exotic?! Will probably be pricey, though, since it's a resin kit, and former offerings of this kind already had a steep price tag.

Indeed, one of them is in Serbia/Yugoslavia I understand, so they have no excuse for getting the model wrong!  ;D

The other one is in the Indian Navy Museum in Goa.

True, but Lift Here's resin stuff is of superb quality.

OW,

Wow.  Here I was thinking it was something entirely Whiffed!

And talk about "full circle!"  There were plenty of times that the early 'Stangs got mistaken for 109s.  And here's a 109 done up so folks could mistake it as a Mustang!

Gotta love it!

Makes you wonder what they used for the belly scoop. It must have slowed the aircraft down quite a bit too.

The other one is in the Indian Navy Museum in Goa.

And there is the fuselage of a third Sealand at the Transport Museum in Cultra, NI.  But the gallery that houses it has been closed for over a year whilst they perform 'restoration'.

Possibly some Buchon used to portray Mustangs in a film, hence a fake intake and US markings?  IIRC, the same kit is getting the clipped wing and decals for aircraft used in "The Battle of Britain" too.

Um, Reply #16 & Reply #25, perchance? :unsure: ;)
