P-40 giant scale by Top Flite LPU

This Top Flite P-40 ARF is new in box and ready to be assembled. The Robart rotating retracts come with the plane and I would like to sell them together but I will break them up if the price is right. I'd prefer a local pickup but I'll also ship via Greyhound to anywhere in the continental US.
