As much as I like Mustangs, they certainly are as rare as a Honda Civic at warbird shows.. If I am going to pay 2 million for a WWII aircraft, I am probably going to want something not many other people have.

The Yak is a replica, with an allison I think, thus the price.

The FM-2 turns me on.

Not so sure about that reasoning. Look at the second one in the thread. It says 'restoration.' Obviously they both have Allison as engines. But it would seem than if one is a restoration at under a half million then the price for the other one would be due to unpopularity/unfamiliarity or some such prejudice.

If they have Allisons fitted then it's pretty certian they are both actually Yak 3 UA ... the Yak 3UA was built by Yakolov in the 90's to original wartime specs the plans, tools, dies and fixtures of the original but fitted with modern Allison engines.


Then again most of the P51D's kicking about are post WWII as well and sometimes it would seem the only original part on some recovered and restored WWII vintage warbirds is the name plate with the serial number http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

(New) Pirate Ship

Our Black Pearl was constructed according to a primitive drawing by one of the sea robbers, who was sailing this ship. We began to build the ship in October 2005 and we suppose to finish it in February 2007. We seem to be able to finish it 10 months sooner than the famous sea robber Henry Morgan did thanks to the modern technology in particular.

Details include 6 bronze functional cannons, handmade canvases and ropes, a handmade metal-tipped anchor and also the sheathing impregnated by hot blood from oxen.


PRICE REDUCED TO US$1,250,000.00

Actually the P51 is probably the easiest to own overall, because of the economies of scale.

There simply are more spares and vendors selling stuff for Mustangs than any other warbird.

That said, I'll take a P40. Although a new construction Ki-100 with a Pratt & Whitney would sure be cool.
