Defence Community Expo Canberra 2016
« on: February 27, 2016, 09:54:18 AM »
Hi guys, the defence Community Expo is on again Sat 5 March at ADFA from 10am to 2pm, just a short day and PGS will be there displaying our tanks. It's held for new defence families that have come to the Canberra region this year.

Cheers

PGS attended the Defence Community Day yesterday, we setup a small static display on 2 tables with tanks and some of Wobbly's 1/6 figures. Again had a lot of interest from the crowd and we had a good relaxing day talking tanks. Thanks to Wobbly, Ross, Gra and Chris (who travelled down from Newcastle) helping out on the day. Many thanks Panzertruppen. We even had the band entertaining us with some great music

Any way as usual some pics  ;D ;D

cheers Gra  :)

Gra,

What a great display.  The 1/6 fellows look like they could take on the 1/16 tanks single-handedly--all except the big, bad Sturmpanzer. 

Yet, where did you get the 1/1 fellows?  They look like typical, rotund Wisconsinites, so I would fit in well, indeed.  But that cannot really be the Panzer Gruppe Süd!  I heard that all the members of that club are young and agile so they can keep up with their lithe, sexy lovers.

Thanks for the replys guys, hopefully next year we will have a small area to run our tanks around with a village setup.

Her dr. I think we are more like Dads Army  ::) didn't you see the walking stick in the background  ;D ;D

Kettenrad not RC and yes Damo being eyeing of the schwim for RC  ;)

Cheers
