But...I agree with you.

Look at the gorgeous Japanese Zero that was recovered many years ago...LOADS of original paint. But...it now hangs restored from the ceiling of a museum, nothing left original.

The Fw190 out of Russia that Flying Heritage has...was a BEAUTIFUL wreck. Nothing left original. Now restored and flying...though they spent $15M...it is worth maybe $5M at the high side.

Same with Me109 G6 411077. the entire fuselage is made new.
The 190 analogy is incorrect, very much original, including 90% of the skins, hence the cost.
