  Interesting thought that it could be newly discovered locked in unused hanger since WW2.   

That would be one hell of a book shelf box display - spray down with adhesive, coat with 'dust'. Mount it on a circular base fixed to an old record player. LED lights as needed. Add some scratchy-head 72nd scale 21st century warehouse guys, tarp-covered stacks of boxes under the wings.



Variation on that theme ->   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBilqHbV_Wo

If my googlefu works, wingspan is just under 16"?

Appreciate the interest and comments.   Wingspan is 28.5 inches.   Kinda large.
Found in old hanger diorama with convincing as possible backstory is interesting.
Took some in the sun pictures which show true colors.

Oops. That's quite a difference.

It's like it needs it's own display stand.  This is 29.5" for $50.

Could probably raise the black circular base easier than finding someone to bend ya three curved pieces of lexan for the sides.
