I was greeted to a worried looking wife on my return from work this morning.
Like a DUMMY, I place a foam tray of BA armor on the washing machine in a rush home from a game the other night with the ASSUMPTION that IF anyone was doing laundry, they would move the tray....
Once again, assumption bit me in the rear!
Well, 3 Stugs, a Tiger, 2 Shermans, and Panzer IV's went flying, scattering them to the floor . Amazingly, the casualty list was: 2 slightly bent barrels on the Shermans (76's), 1 decapitated tank commander and hatch on a Panzer IV, and 1 shurzen broken off the other Pz IV. WHEW!!!
Thank god for metal barrels! I can not believe how tough these models are! 10 minutes witht the super glue and it's like nothing ever happened.
Moral? No more tanks on the laundry machine.... And stick with BA tanks .
Hoho, break something of the wife's and it's, 'You're a clumsy idiot!' and revoked bedroom privileges. She breaks someting of yours and it's, 'Well they're just toy soldiers anyway, it's about time you grew up!'. We poor blokes just can't win :p
Good job restraining the fireworks Vogless, it could only have ended badly.
There can be no doubt that the success of the attack on and stand against the enemy at St. Lambert sur Dives can largely be attributed to this officer’s coolness ... London Gazette, no.36812, 27 November 1944
Dropped my PaK 40 while I was about to do the last work on it. Put on a coat of matt and protective spray. The fall cracked the base which resulted in basing materials coming off and a part of the shield came off. The rest held though. Thank goodness
