My wife calls me a curmudgeon. I haven't looked it up but I assume it means "fun loving and free spirited" or some such twaddle. I inform and perform over at
and stick my oar in here as well. My passion is WWII 1/35 armour but I'm coming around to liking the odd 1/32 thing...
My preference - WW2 RNZAF & Pacific Theatre, Allied & Axis, ETO, Mediterranean, AFV & figures
I enjoy doing research

The Yanks have lost a few over recent years. I think that they still maintain (so I have heard) that they have not lost an Abrams in Combat. And by Combat they mean a standard 1 on 1, Tank v's Tank, mano a mano- not the RPG, IED, Mine type Combat.
Have seen a few "burnt out" photos of the Abrams (real and model) when I was cruising the net for reference - your' is wayyyyyy up there in the "whicked cool" catagory!
