I had my doubts when I saw the unusual tread on the tyres. The tail wheel doors on the real P40s seem to open further than this model.

There are more models on the airport. Both P40 and mustangs, All of them are booted in the same tires. I talked to a scene-shifter saturday and asked him about that. He told, they didn't found better. All models wear quad-bike wheels.
