The first Porsche to smash the competition

Post by LUW » Fri Aug 10, 2018 12:46 pm

You thought that would be a 911 at Le Mans. Heck no! Ferdinand wanted to smash the competition.

No, I don't colllect tanks. But this one is special: Gary "Redneck" Oafiolli sent me it as a gift!

"I'm sending you a present", he said some weeks ago.

"Really?!? Cool!" I say. "What is it?".

"Oh, just an old model Porsche..."

"Awesome", I said to myself. "I'm finally going to get a Gmünd 356!!!" :geek:

The worse part is that the tank is cool as a frozen cucumber. Detail level is VERY nice. BIG, too, but makes a great display piece. And now I'm in trouble: I need a shelf for it. But it would be silly just one tank on a whole shelf...
See where this is going? :roll:

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

You can bad-mouth it, but we know you're all envious :mrgreen:
That's the bee's knees. Well, maybe it looses to the Tiger but it's still awesome. I'm a BIG fan of WWII armor (and planes) and the model is really nice, and, not expensive. Honestly, if I had the space I would go deep into the theme.

They smashed (literally) the competition. The problem is that the competition didn't run out of things to be smashed.
In the armor department the Allieds won because of shear numbers, not because of quality or effectiveness.
So yes, I meant smash the competition ;)
