Friend's gift


Jorge Faria had a plan to defend Tarawa: Plunging hundreds of tanks and artillery pieces in the low tide and thus stoping US marines from taking the island. It was simple, even without ammo the defenders could save the island simply by stoping Lcvp's and Amtracs with tons of metal. Many of them didn't even existed in 1943 and many also were US made... Strange...

Well... easter almonds always made me delirious...

Not everyone can say that one day he received around 200 kits as a gift from a friend.

I already can say that. Some 2 weeks ago I went to Maia, Porto, to the house of Jorge Faria ( see in the web 0 Brigadeiro or Brigada Tripeira) and brought all this, along with many figures, as a gift.

Everything was already carefully wrapped inside shoe boxes and the trunk of my car quickly became full.

These are beautiful plastic and metal kits from many brands carefully built and painted along many years by JF.


The defensive plan...

For the ease of display, the photos are divided into "areas", but as you can see there  are many more models than those in the "area" title.
 
One again, a big THANKS FOR ALL THOSE TANKS to JF! They will keep me busy for many delightful moments.

And now dear JMM and PC it's your turn to invite me to your house... Or to pass here and drop your unattended kits.

  1. Ainda estou para saber que tipo de "coelhinha" de Páscoa tiveste de dar ao JF para ele te entregar tantas prendas...
    Parabéns!
    Falando por mim, também posso dizer-te que tenho muitos "unattended kits" cá por casa a precisar da tua atenção, mas é para os pintares!
