    Hi all!

    I've been lurking here for a while, but registered today because I just gotta know, what's LPB stand for? It seems to have something to do with little plastic people, but ....

    I guess enquiring minds want to know!

    Hey Mark,
    You can call 'em LPP's if you want, but believe me, they can be LPB's when they want to be!!

    Just try to make one hold still for the paintbrush. They come out looking like Kiss in drag.....:D :D :D

    mhd - basically you hit on the right objects!

    LPB could mean anything...
    ... from Lovely Polystyrene Bunnies :) :) :)
    ... to Lousy Plastic Bastards :mad: :mad: :mad:

    It depends, how much you love them - and how they cooperate with you. Feel free to find other explications of 'LPB'. :confused: :p :rolleyes: :D

    Hmm,

    mhdishere .. as you can see my less *enlightened* compatriots
    on the gauge (those who obviously model the earlier and more
    *primitive* ;) era's use the term LPB .. of course I know that
    you are a far more reasonable person than that and would
    use LPP's (Little Plastic People) or even LPC's (Little Plastic Comrades!) if you're supporting the PLOP's fight to get rights
    for the oppressed minions of so many Draconian model railroaders!!! :D :D :D

    Also check the photo section for the latest attack on the LPB's, were winning the war!

    Hi mhdishere, and welcome to the gauge.
    Now then, there all wrong, LPB stands for "Little People -Behaviour " :D
    if you believe that, you will believe anything.
    :rolleyes:
