Does anyone know where I might be able to get one for a display only. It doesn't need to work or anything.

Hey Elroy, thank you. I got my B-3 from whatpriceglory. I can't wait to get it. I went for a new one(replica) of the B3 since I want to wear it to airshows in the airplane, and hang it in the old gameroom when I am not using it.
