P-51 Mustang WWII Fighter in a Million Pieces is the world’s toughest Lego game
Vintage WWII fighter jets are some of the most magnificent machines to ever pass from the drawing board to the moral realm. Even so, we doubt most people would want to bother taking a million-piece, one-piece P-51 Mustang and painstakingly piece together. If you’re the psychopath who would love this kind of challenge, well, go for it, weirdo.
Where that engine could have stopped at anyone, frankly, though, there’s so much work to be done just to make this Mustang a serviceable glider, let alone an airworthy warplane. Even so, it’s still a pleasure to see all those tiny Mustang components photographed in all their glory without the rest of the plane distracting us from the brilliance of engineering.
According to the official listing on behalf of an anonymous private seller on spiritinthesky.co.uk, this Mustang served with the 357th Fighter Group in the skies of Western Europe. Believe it or not, the current owner has put in over 1,500 hours of work to bring the aircraft to its present condition. We’d probably be terrified of the state he was in before he got his hands on it.
North American aviation emblems molded into the parking brake release pedals are an exciting touch that might have gone completely unnoticed had this Mustang not been reduced to an unrecognizable heap of aluminum over 70 years old. .
What is the price of an iconic American warbird in more tracks than there are episodes of Top Gear over the 30 seasons? Well the answer is anyway, an absolute madman is willing to pay cash to bring everything home. We imagine you would need more than a man with a van to tidy everything up.
