They literally tunnelled under MA USA and stole the company,


They even made a movie about it. Only, in the movie Tony is able to turn the tide.

Needless to say, their opinions of Our'Tone were not favorable, from Tony initial insistence that he knew best when it came digital files and production methods, to the time they inherited WF from him, the level of incompetence was shockingly unprofessional.

The WF guys left a few limited edition plastic sprues, that they were working on, at the table for Frothers to SNAFU, and although I'm not a fan of plastic kits, I couldn't help but be impressed with the precision and quality levels they are working at, nothing like the poo-on-a-sprue Tony was banging out...

So, from them, to everyone who posted here, Thanks kids, you did a hell of a job... 8)


I did try my bestest.

Yes, I know, I actually watched that movie when I was a kid, even as a small boy on my tummy with my knees kicking in te air, sipping my can of coke and eating Lion Midget Gems*, watching a movie made in the 1950's about a period of history I knew nothing about, I went 'What the fuck is this shit? Can you SAY stuff like that about the Chinese?" and it stayed with me.

*Lion Midget Gems - so good they had to spoil them.

How do you kick your knees in the air when you lying on your stomach?

That was what made me laugh the most. I wish we had known that earlier.

It was great meeting them. Seemed like nice blokes.

I'm pretty sure they said that they were going to do lots more amazons next, or they would have said that if I'd remembered to mention it. 0;)
It's happening again...
