I just took delivery of a 1:44 scale diecast model of this very aircraft from Vintage Fuel, the company that made the model. It's a limited edition model (2,500 were made in the green color scheme) and the certificate card that came with mine said "1 of 2,500". So I wonder if I got the first one made, or if the certificate means the model is just "one of 2,500". The certificate does mention the back story too: apparently the aircraft was damaged in a wheels-up landing in October 1941 and was in the hangar being repaired on December 7 during the Pearl Harbor attack so it wasn't destroyed by strafing or bombing.
