A popular Chinese toy company is taking the secret weapon in the deadly U.S. raid on Usama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound and turning it into kid’s play – offering a “Operation Geronimo” stealth helicopter scale model kit that come in pairs of two, just like in the real-life events.
“The fuselage, nose and tail were all modified to reduce the craft’s radar cross-section,” reads a product description on DragonModelsUSA.com, the U.S. distributor of Dragon Models Limited. “This 1+1 package will even allow modelers to recreate the raid on Bin Laden’s hideout!”
Dale Bruner, president of online hobby shop InternetHobbies.com, said his store is “excited” to carry the model kit, which is to come stateside in July.
“It’s one of the first times anyone has come out with something like this,” he said.
Bruner believes China’s advanced plastics manufacturing technologies allowed Dragon to create a model of the helicopter so quickly.
The Dragon design team in Hong Kong could not be reached for comment.
