Collectibles. National Aviation Hall of Fame. 2002 release. No, I haven't lost my mind: it was cheap (about US$25.00). For awhile, these were being bid up on eBay for as high as US$600.00. But, all bubbles burst, and I was able to get this model and two matchbox Flying Tiger P-40Es, one a regular issue, and one a Platinum, for like prices. (I was surprised to find that the two Flying Tiger P-40Es were actually different version with different markings).

Anyway, this is a nice model, and much nicer than the silver version. Hopefully, I got the color right...
