Being the loader on an M-50 in the middle of an extended firefight... not good.

Not often you see pictures of the Ontos. Going back a lot of years, I had a model of the Ontos, I think 1/48, by 'FROG' who did some incredible kits such as the M42 Duster, M8 Tractor and 155mm. They also did a monster kit of the 'Atomic cannon'.

My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

Not pictured: the twenty Ukranian slaves they have pushing these cardboard props along from underneath/inside, Flintstones-style. ;D

With those covers they look like a mother-in-law's living room set.
