Oh yeah.

I still remember, January in '98, walking into the Myer toy section one evening (an Australian department store) and seeing these guys on the shelves, clear as day. I ending up completely falling in love with the RESQ theme, which I've mentioned previously, and the big helicopter was a birthday gift later on in the year (and I still own it). But the hovercraft was so cool, so nifty and different. I absolutely loved it. Still do, in fact. Earlier this year I actually bought one of the last unopened versions on Bricklink (from a seller in Italy, no less). Pricy, but no regrets.

Beautiful set. Great colours, and awesome play value.

I love the Res-Q series, I wish I got more of them. The colors work so well. LEGO really should make a hoover craft like this in the modern Coast Guard colors.

Despite being the second-largest set of the Res-Q line, this set was a Lego exclusive in the United States.

Res-Q was probably the last good Town subtheme before LEGO devolved into Jack Stone crap.

ah this series was good and so much fun. I love the car parks on the ship thing. We have much smaller river response (from time when I was a kid), and kids now love it. It adds so much in play department.

Those windscreen/canopies mark what I think are the prime years of Lego yellowverse space. Undersea too, for that matter. Part 2507, which seems largely missing from Brickset's database, though rebrickable and brickset have it.

I got this as a late birthday present in '98 as loved it, then proceeded to get all the series including two of the big helicopters. The only one I missed out on the end was the HQ. Sadly I had to sell them a few years ago when we were in a fiscally bad position. Sold for an awful lot of money though :)

Still one of my favourite sets I have. No hovercraft since then has come close to being as good
