I think a couple of these could be suitable modified to represent the flocks of kids that used to turn up when we were deployed in a village on exercise in Germany back in the day; what is really needed though is for kids on their bikes.
Coincidentally, I read in yesterday’s The Times (Brit newspaper) the following extract from the letters’ page; the letter was referring to another letter but I don’t know what the theme was, not least as I only occasionally buy a newspaper these days in an effort to avoid the depression that inevitably follows(!) However for what it’s worth:
“One boy on his own equals a brain, two boys together equals half a brain, three or more boys together equals no brain at all”.
This explains an awful lot, not least my own mis-spent youth.
That would explain me too Brian! And my twin brother and our two best friends growing up lol……
God knows how it maps across to my service in what was called “Junior Leaders” in the Army (aged 15-17 and hitherto actually called “Boys Service”. There must have been 500-600 of us, so no chance of a brain at all!
Yes it did extend to my military service, at least the early years!
Sadly the same can be said about most adults…
Is the third boy (with brush and bucket) meant to be Tom Sawyer painting the fence?
Trying to look innocent… “The Usual Suspects.”
To illustrate my own boyhood I would substitute a purloined bottle of beer for the trumpet! Easy enough to model, given all of the beverage bottle sets available from MiniArt.
as was pointed out when i and my boyhood friends did something stupid that resulted in a trip the hospital…“there was a lot of testosterone and very little common sense”.
