Thanks a lot Weaver for your enthusiastic comment.

Depends it on "deutsche Gründlichkeit"...?
I suppose not, because I know some germans, not giving a penny for acuracy.
So, I think, it's because of my personal love for doing fine craft (work?).
In my youth and as a young adult, I was a modeller also, but I'd interrupted for roundabout a quarter of a century and now, entering the part of age becoming wiser (I hope) and much less impatience my models earn the benefit of.
Nevertheless, as a again-beginner, I still have to learn a looot of tricks and techniques to make a reeeal goooood model instead of a simply good model.

O, yess; "Franglais"..., I've heard of, but have forgotten it.
Now, I hope the german "institute of german language" will never go to our government and ask to prevent our language against "foreign influence" by law, like it has happens in France some years ago.
This would be, like we say in german "to shoot at sparrows with cannons" (mit Kanonen auf Spatzen schießen)!
Instead of all really bad examples, I see everyday, I think, it's not as worse, as it might look.
Most of the worst devellopings will be gone with the wind, I have made the experience.

A nice story you've told of your mom...
I enjoyed it and had laughed deep from my heart after reading it.
Yes, sometimes regional differences -also between close together regions- can be great.
Our region of Aachen/west-rhineland (scientific term: "ripuarian") dialect won't be understand, for example, in Hamburg, Munich or Dresden and vica-versa!
And so it is everywhere, I'm sure of.
Know, that sometimes a german is able to differ between the origin of an native english speaker.
The best example is the difference between britisch english and american english in our ears: It's the typical pronounciation of BE (we call it "stiff lips") and AE (we call it "talking with a hot potatoe in the mouth" or "allways chewing gum") and we can identify an texan also: talking with TWO hot potatoes! LOL

(I beg all of you for pardon, because of out of topic...)

It's amusing to hear the same idea expressed in different words in different languages. For instance:

German "shooting at sparrows with cannons" = British "using a sledgehammer to crack a walnut"

It's interesting that you use "talking with a hot potato in the mouth" to describe the American accent: we in the north of England use "plum in't gob" (plum in the mouth) to describe the upper-class southern English accent... ;D

The phrase the man on mum's bus was using sounded like "Azfunaderkilaz?". What he was actually saying, in a fast, gutteral northern accent was "have you found a door key, lass?"

Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

ahhhh Accents.Reminds me of an experience.
As a wee lad of 29 years of age I was assigned to Lucius D. Clay Kaserne in Germany with the U. S. Army. Now as a Newbie I had to go to the same familiarization course with the language and culture of Germany as every other soldier, officer, American civilian employee and dependant. There was no waving in this rule for the likes of Army Brats who had attended multiple years in German schools, naturalized Germans who joined the Army and native born Germans who married Americans and were being 'Rotated' back with their spouse.
We had a lady who fell into the last category in our class. She and her husband had spent 8 years rotating between her native Germany and his native Texas. When we went out on a tour of the nearby town of Garlstadt I trailed her just to see the German peoples faces when she spoke perfect German...
With a deep Texas drawl! I knew the first day of class I would love that day when she said "Gutten Morgen Y'all!" to the class.  ;D

The final!

Here's the Zombinator-Porsche.
A little brighten up at the PC for a better view into the passengers room:

and:


And an overview (but without taillights):


The lucky (?) and surviving restaurator of the Porsche and later forced rebuilder will met later the owner of the Peterbilt (both were members of the same vintage-cars-club) to load the Porsche on the back of the truck and to cruise out into the world.

Love it. Kermit the frog !

I think the windshield and side door screens should fold up like your plow did, so you have a better field of vision when you aren't being attacked.

Thx a lot...

It's a good idea, Capt. Canada, but very difficult to realize, especially for a beginner like me...
But remember, dear friend; there anyway is not muuuch time when the zombiecalypse breaks out and the modification up to this status you see isn't done in a weekend... building the trough for the sparetanks, lifting the suspension, making the baggage-room below the bonnet greater, welding the grids and so on...!
In this situation time is not money, time is surviving. (Same for the Peterbilt.)
