It is funny how a simple line design could offend so many, even 70 years later.

Unfortunately, it's the only legal body I have right now so many will have to suffer.
Unless someone has a good sticker to cover the 8 lines on my lid.

The funny part to me is that the dam Natzi's stole an ancient symbol with a positive message and left it with a negative connotation for generations. So we should be more offended by the Natzi part as opposed to the symbol by itself. Let's take back the swastika!

I think your next body should be a tribute to Anna Nicole Smith.

Yeah, It's kinda too bad because it is technically a really well painted body, and I got the Messerschmidt connection the first time I saw it.

x1000 man,i'm really tired of hearing all the negativity with crawling and such! i don't think rude and offensive material should be displayed, but a piece of history that most of us learned early on in school is really that offensive.IMO it is a very well painted body!i,ve seen some bodies that have "the bird" proudly displayed,"ganja" proudly displayed,and so on and so forth, but never had heard a word about them.
This is supposed to be a family affair and yes we should keep it clean,in all aspects,not just one! I know what i've said will upset a few,but then again that is why i live in the greatest country of all U.S.A where fathers,sons,mothers and daughters have fought for the freedom and the right to speak our mind!
Thank You and hope to see all of you at the next comp!
keep the rubber side down!
Randy
BTW sorry mike for jackin the thread.

need a little time for the next one, but will get something planned big again here for sure. In the meantime, you're more than welcome to come by on our regular GTG days of Thursday nights and Saturday mornings.
