    Plaid Stallions 1941, Sure to be the biggest hit of the year.



    For the record, 1941 wasn't the biggest hit of 1979 (it was 24th), that title went to "Kramer Vs Kramer" but had much more disappointing merchandise.

    I liked 1941 when I saw it in the theatre. It was goofy so it hit 10-year-old me in all the right spots. I remember discovering years later that it was ripped apart by critics and didn't do well at the box office. I watched it a couple years ago and still enjoyed it!

    That model was one of my first purchases on ebay 20+ years ago.

    Back in the day when ebay was new I was in my "THEY MADE THAT ??? -- I HAVE TO HAVE IT !!!" phase

    Thanks for posting that!

    I never knew this model existed, either.

    "1941" was a hit for me on television and videocassette!

    Ahh, good ole Slim Pickens.

    There are some really great bits and gags in the film. I liken it to a Mad Magazine parody. I wonder had it been called "National Lampoon's 1941", if it wouldn't have found a bigger audience. I'll admit that some of the laffs don't stick the landing, but it is beautifully photographed, has an amazing cast, incredible special effects that still hold up, a rollicking John Williams score, and a go-for-broke spirit that is just plain bonkers, even if the whole isn't greater than the sum of its parts.

    Yeah, I like 1941.

    This model kit needs a tiny Wild Bill Kelso in the cockpit.
