Did Humbrol buy up Lifecolor ... or the other way around? Was just looking at the paint instructions for a new (?) academy kit and it listed Humbrol. Below it had "enamel" with their usual 2-3 digit numbers. Then it listed "acrylic". Those numbers were LC's UA numbers. (Kit was Academy M-1A2 TuskII)

Not real familiar with Humbrol .... kinda scarce here in Her Majesty's Former Colonies (PLEASE TAKE US BACK!!! And open The Tower back up for Trump!!) , but I think I see the issue. Some editor screwed the pooch and put the Lifecolor numbers in the Humbrol section and the Humbrol Acrylic numbers in the LC section.

Hahahaha...No! ... they can not take you back because after they also want us back and if everything restart like the old times then we have a high chance that instead of putting him in the London tower they load it on a ship and send it as a convict here to us like the good old days..sorry mate but is all yours...

however, they made a mistake in the list

Was hoping Macron was going to give him a personal demo of the guillotine when they visited the Bastille. Cultural question: Do you Diggers celebrate Armistice Day like the rest of the Commonwealth, or do you just do ANZAC Day?

Hello Timothy,

We Commemorate both.

ANZAC day is our national day of respect.

Our Memorial Day,last day of May, was started as a remembrance day for those lost during our Civil War. Then "upgraded" for all U.S. war dead. Now all dead, grandma, uncles .... Armistice Day became Veterans Day. Now adays both are just excuses for mattress sales and BBQs. Another reason for wanting back in the fold.

I have to say i am impressed by the ANZAC day i am in a small town in rural north Queensland but there is always a nice memorial with all the veterans and flag raises at dawn, in Switzerland for obvious reasons we have no similar commemorations
