Famo Famo Famo Famo

Post by Paul Morris » Sun Dec 12, 2010 3:41 pm

Oh dear what a shame.
Whatever happened to the Famo campaign,
A hardy few pinned their colours to the mast,
when... with baited breath we dared to ask,
build us please a kit beyond compare,
tis true we said ...we want a Famo fair.

Some wanted a gun fixed on the back,
some seemed happy just to have the crack,
yet we who yearn for something more,
we already knew the score,
we needed numbers quite a few,
to come and stand with the trusty few,
who know the game and what we want,
an sdkfz nine is that for which we truly pine.

So come on builders far and near,
you know your very welcome here,
to join the few and swell the ranks,
then once again we can all give thanks,
So go on Mark and Gill...give us all a happy pill
Tis the season of good will,
of that we all are sure,
a few more months of waiting we can patiently endure.

But give us please a hint or mention,
that it may one day be your intention,
to swell the rows of model tanks,
with the mighty Famo that was used to recover those tanks,
we know what we want,
we know who to ask,
so as you open your hip flask,
to celebrate Christmas now and past,
please remember those who wish to have delivered from their list,
A Famo shiny bright and new,
that we can celebrate with a heady brew,
and raise a glass to Mark and Gill,
at this season of good will,
a toast of thanks,
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night" :wink:

Hello Chaps

Just to remind you that a FAMO would be nice to go with the Bergpanther

I would quite like to see a nice little R75 side car the lot, this should be a lot less money than the afv's and would allow others to join in the fun
and of course a bl--dy great famo so we could pull our broken tanks around!

Thats right, the Waffenamt regulation says you need 3 Famo to pull a Tiger...
That will be a lot of £ :shock:

Give us a Stug III instead!

Cheers

It´s all in the details!
