So, given all the current controversy, any thoughts on which manufacturer will
be the first to make a kit of John Kerry's swift boat, complete with an actual
figure of "himself." (Of course.) ;-)
"If an enemy power is bent on conquering you, and proposed to
turn all of his resources to that end, he is at war with you;
and you -- unless you contemplate surrender -- are at war with
him." --Barry Goldwater
The only Swift boat kit I am aware of is the old 1/48th scale offering from
Monogram, which was reiisued several times since its first appearance around
1970. If Kerry is elected, it is quite likely Revell-Monogram would reissue the
kit, though a portrait figure in 1/48th seems unlikely.
Too bad R-M didn't have the foresight to have it reissued now - they would
have sold a ton thanks to all the controversy. The newspeople alone would
have bought hundreds just to show everybody what a Swift looked like.
