Default New Hangar 9 Giant P-51 ARF?

Does anybody know anything about the new 77" w/s P-51 ARF Hangar 9 is coming out with?

It looks very similar to the smaller version but doesn't have the Invasion Stripes.

I hope it seels better than the marketing fools which came up with the idea. At 77inches, i do not believe it is true 1/4 scale and lacking 3" for IMAA. Could be a rough sell. So to avoid the mess, Go with World Models

Well with the full size at 37' wingspan, this is certainly not 1/4 scale.

I just feel that this version is much more closer to scale than the WM version, although it is obviously not perfect.

Yes, this version looks more scale than the smaller version, with the tailwheel in scale location. I'm glad they got rid of the invasion stripes because the real "Marie" didn't have them.
