Since the population of this site just keeps on growing, we may be ready for an anthem.

What song would be for scale modeling what "I'm too sexy" has become for catwalk modeling ?

If the building/painting is not going according to plan, then "Take This Job and Shove It"

How about the Star Wars Theme Music (from the bar scene in the first one). We have a real great mix of people and interests here.....It would fit. Or maybe "Tanks for the Memories" ! Just throwin' a couple of ideas out there at ya! Hey noone's perfect! Jeff

There are no words. But this is the fanfare I would use for the site:

Listen to track 1

Heyyy! That's :-) great! It made me want to salute!

Is the whole CD like that? I've been wanting a CD with that kind of music for a while. (in other words, patriotic themes)

How about the obvious choice ...................PANZERLIED !
Here are the lyric's translated in English .

Panzer Lied (Tank Song)

If there's storm or it snows,
Or the sun smiles on us,
The day is burning hot,
Or the night icy cold.
Dusty are the faces,
But joyful is our mind,
Joyful our mind;

Our tank roars ahead
Within the storm wind.
When a hostile tank
appears ahead of us,
Full throttle is given
And we close with the foe!
It's not our life we value,
For the army of our realm,
..... Army of our realm
For Germany to die ( respectfully substitute . " Our Forum " or "Armorama " for Germany )
Is honor most high.

And if we are abandoned
By that unfaithful luck,
And if we don't return
To our homeland again,
If a bullet strikes us down,
If our fate calls on us,
....... Yes calls on us,
Then our tank will give us
A metal grave.
With thundering engines,
Fast as a lightning bolt,
The enemy engaging,
Within our armor plates.
Ahead of our comrades,
In the battle, all alone,
We stand all alone
That's how we strike deep
Into the enemy's ranks.
With obstacles and tanks
The foe blocks our path,
We laugh about it
And simply pass them by.
And if ahead guns threaten,
Hidden in the yellow sand,
....... In the yellow sand,
We seek out our way,
That no one else found.

I was thinking Crazy Train from Ozzy Osbourne Especially if your working with a real difficult model that's driving you crazy
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

In my case (and the case of many other users of th!s site), CCR's "midnight special" would be a fitting tune, too !

Jim, I definetly like your idea. My reason is cause toward the end of the movie, they have tank sounds and plane sounds mixed in with the music.....

In France, there's a song saying : "le plastique c'est fantastique", meaning "plastic is fantastic" ! The problem is the text is more about rubber (be safe)... #:-)

It's GOT to be "They're coming to take me away" Here is a slightly modified example.

They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa,
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa.
To the happy home. With trees and flowers and chirping birds and MODEL
MAKERS who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're
coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!

I know my wife must think about this song every time she sees me hunched over my latest model. I ask her what kind of models she'd rather me fool around with, plastic ones or runway models. (like THAT is going to happen)
