And consider this: there were 48 Buckleys built. (Try saying THAT three times quickly) There were at least four APD versions, and a bunch went to the Royal Navy. Now, that's a lot of possibilities right there, but then let's consider that the succeeding Cannon and Edsall class DEs aren't all that different in appearance above the main deck and have identical dimensions to the Buckleys. And there were a total of 164 Cannons and Edsalls built and commissioned, many of which not only served bravely in the Second World War but also came back later as DERs, USCG cutters(!), and gun ships for service in Vietnam, not to mention the many that eventually served in foreign navies as well.
Think about it - at a minimum, TWO HUNDRED AND TWELVE POSSIBLE MODELS. Can anybody here come up with another type of ship that has this much sheer potential? Good times still to come, brothers. lotsa good times.
PS: Would I be greedy hoping that Revell will bring back their Leahy and Ramsey for next year?
