I built this for McCain during his last presidential bid. My friend Paul Galanti, also a Vietnam POW, was to present it for me, but, because of campaign rules, candidates arenít allowed to accept gifts. Unfortunately Iím not sure John ever received the model, I prefer to think that he did.

 Iíve built more than 20 of these for various American heroes, including McCain, Galanti, and Gene Cernan. My small thank you for their exceptional service. 

Enjoy the photos.
