There's a few scaled P-51 replicas flying to good effect behind big block V8 auto engines; crate race motors and the like. Permits the original lines and respectable performance.

Seems something similar could have been used with this full size replica. Probably more cost effective, too.

For all the trouble the designer spent to create a look-alike the final product is severely undermined by the funky nose and oddly scaled prop.
