Merit International: One in the Hand, Three in the Bush

Every so often, we receive press releases regarding new product announcements that give us pause for consideration but nevertheless take a pass on for any number of reasons. Yesterday we learned that our friends over at Aiken’s Airplanes had entered into a partnership agreement with Merit International to release a 1:18 scale Avenger torpedo plane that was flown by former President George H. W. Bush during the closing stages of WWII. According to the press release, “this model features a moving canopy with cockpit detail, movable flaps, movable landing gears, positional torpedo bay doors folding wings, and includes the pilot, top gunner and belly gunner.”

Only 330 pieces are being produced, so if you are interested in purchasing one of these limited edition replicas, run, don’t walk over to the following link: http://www.aikensairplanes.com/tbf-avenger-x-2-vt-51-uss-san-jacinto-1944-lt-george-bush-aikens-exclusive/
