xhelfix, batter up!

Very nice SU 122! Nice detailing on her. I especially like the portrait of "Papa Stalin" on it. Very creative! That's also a very nice collection of Russian armor.

Nice entry to get the ball the rolling.

Cheers,
Eric.

I agree with EAO, nice tank and stowage. Love the driver peeking out the front.

Sure is nice. I will shamelessly copy the portrait idea for my JS 2 project, it’s a nice touch!

lmcq11,

Nice job. I've always found the big Leopard to be my favorite "modern" tank. Not sure why, but to me there is still some WW2 German panzer lines to them. Probably just me though?

Yours looks very lifelike. I also like the "Afghanistan dust" making it look quite the part. That's quite the list of parts and add ons you've got there too. Nicely done!

Cheers,
Eric.

Thanks, you're not dreaming, it should have been called the Panther III

So I have looked at the tanks I was thinking of entering and I noticed a couple of things that has made me decide not to enter any. The first was the t34/76 but I had my kv1 as a back up. After checking them both on my t34 I have noticed that at some point when in transit for the shows I did last year I snapped the mg off and on the kv-1 I have forgot to install the back light, the third option would have been the su85, but that is on display at the local model shop

Exhibitedbrute,
Nice Pershing! I've always liked them. Sort of like a Sherman on steroids! Always found the turret lines attractive. And how can one not love that enormous cannon?

Very nice,
Eric.

Ha! I've been laughing so hard that I've dropped my cigar and nearly toppled off the deck. I guess I should have worded that better... and more clearly. Tis loaded with sexual innuendo!

I'm learning more about you guys all the time! I believe Jimster warned me about this! I'll have to watch myself around you guys!

My Wife came out to see what all the commotion is about, I've freaked the dogs out with my convulsions of laughter! After she read your reply and regained her composure she said "if the shoe fits..."! Never marry a smart ass! Now I better go and get a flashlight (or torch) and find that cigar!

Well played Sir, well played indeed!
Eric.

I've got my fingers crossed that he found the cigar and his house didn't burn down.
Mind you, the situation reminded me of. . . .

I was, until Mick with his devilish mind showed up! Thank God you didn't enter a Super Pershing! I may really have given him and his rapier wit some ammo to use!

Cheers,
Eric.

I did find the cigar with no trouble. Didn't even have to relight it; just brushed some dog hair and dirt off it, good as new!

I haven't seen the Month Python skit since I was very young, but I remember it well!

Has your Wife ever told you that you're naughty, very, very naughty?!? I'll have to watch myself around you!

Cheers,
Eric.

P.S. my Wife is still razzing me about this!
