I think you are up for a color change next, Commodore.

I heard he has built a secret bunker, hidden on the far side of the moon. Hmm Shipping costs from Sprue Brothers must be ridiculous.

I know a man, who knows a dog, who knows a man that is aware of Manstiens location since he gave up masquerading as the "Man from Del monte".
 
The man has informed me that he may be in Argentina somewhere, but is adamant that he can't tell me any more as he would have to kill me - apparently using the "middle man" laughing dog to carry out the task. The laughing dog is rumoured to report to the other man who is on the edge rather than in the middle.

I get it Milairjunkie, the guy infront of you behind the scenes runs the program on automatic while changing  gears to ensure said program  is not publishied but for everyone to know, however I heard the laughing dog made a  mess in the garage which put him on the top of the bottom list making way for the middle man who was actually the front runner to become dead last. Sorry had to try, maybe i'll get another star some day.

I always thought Manny might have been lurking on this Forum under a different name- or is that not possible if you are banned  ? (Tell the truth, I cant even remember if he was banned, or left of his own accord)  Manny was a fine modeller, just a bit tactless with his critiques of others work, IMO.  (anyone remember the T-34 with snow covering ?- Manny really unloaded on the guy, said his snow was @%$#, and asked whether the tank had driven through a Moscow bakery and was actually covered in flour ?- stuff like that)  I've noticed that a few entry level-modellers have disappeared off the forum since then, and I put it down to ruthless (unhelpful) critiques by Manny and others.  There are certainly less flame wars here now than when I joined 7 years ago- but unfortunately you lose some personalities in the process.
