Fun With Abbreviations (FWA)
Posted by styrene on Saturday, September 27, 2003 10:30 PM
Love Tamiya? Hate DML? Indifferent towards Italeri? Fed up with Airfix? Have a little fun with the company names or their products!
For example:
DML= Does not Match or Lineup

AMT= All Models are Trouble

ERTL= Every Model Requires Total Lineup

Now it's your turn. Put those creative imaginations to work. This could be fun-----or not. (Alright, alright...it's 11:30 p.m., and I'm starting to feel a little punchy.) Tongue [:P]
