I remember seeing a nuclear submarine mockup
in the back of some US comic book that the 9-year old me thought looked pretty cool. However, I was pretty good at creating such things myself from cardboard, stick backed plastic, and other odds and ends, and filling in the gaps with my imagination (whatever happened to that, I wonder).
This is the one thing that I wanted! It fired "real" missiles and torpedos. I can still see that boy sitting in there at the periscope (I was so envious!).My Dad pointed out that for $5.99 (I think that was the price), I would not be getting what I expected. Looking back, I suspect that he was right!
