I'm not sure if a model of that kind of boat is already out or not? but you can be sure that if it is ....it will be modified with the right decals.

Is it the same thing as the PBR from Apocalypse Now? Tamiya already has a 1/35 kit of it if so.

John,

I believe that he may have but the pics I have seen looks like the older larger 'swift' boats.

That Tamiya PBR MKII is one killer kit!

I think it's a good idea to build that model.

Swift boats (PCF's) were quite a bit larger than the PBR's and were technically not river craft (deeper draft, though not much). They were quite a bit faster as well (hence the nickname).

Will it include figures of Kerry shooting the wounded VC troop? What about figures of his crew backing up his story?

Yeah, I know, no politics...
