Hello Everyone, I personally love this web site, I am an avid World War One Modeler and Researcher, I mainly do 1/35 and 1/32 scale vehicles, artillery, rail guns, and figures, with the Paris Gun being my most resent project, now going on for over a year., I love researching different aspects of World War One, Its a shame, that most people have forgotten all those who died, and sacrificed all they had during this time. It also is exciting as well, to research and find out how awesome the inventions of that era was, Armoured Cars, Tanks, Artillery, Airplanes, Forts, etc, etc. Some used for the very first time, ie., Armoured Cars, Tanks.I hope this site continues to grow, I no If Peter will let me I will continue to contribute articles. Until Then God Bless to All. & May God be with all of you from London


**Lets Not Forget 1914-1918**

Well sometimes I feel I am the only WWI modeler on the other side of the Atlantic ocean, but thanks to this great site, the long distance is bridged and all WWI modelers can share and work together. I think WWI is one of hte most fasinating subjects ever, I mean such new tech like planes, helicopters (pkz-2) tanks, armored cars, and so much more.
I do modles in 1/35 ans 1/48 and a bit in 1/72

and I post a lot on Peter Kempfs great site

Hi Peter,


 


I have to congratulate you on what is one of the best websites around for modelling of any kind. The information available here is fantastic, especially for a newcomer to WW1 modelling like myself. Keep up the good work.

I am at present the proud owner of a LFH 16 and ready to restore it. I am uncertain of which was the correct patten on the paint work. The colours also appear to vary but this gun was captured in France so perhaps you or one of your guests could enlighten me.


Many thanks


Garry

Peter, thanks for putting together this web site ... I'm really glad it's here!  Due to a lot of reasons (i.e. kids, moving twice, etc ...), I haven't had the time to either build or draw armoured car plans for a number of years.  As life hopefully settles down to a dull roar, I want to get back to the hobby again.


I do have an MSN group set up for pictures I've put on the internet for RAF Armoured Cars ... Look for http://groups.msn.com/RAFArmdCarCompanies

I want to add my thanks to Peter K. for maintaining this great WWI website.  I share Tim Rigsby's desire to keep the memories of this period alive.  I started collecting US WWI uniforms and personal equipment about twenty years ago.  It has expanded into books, drawings, and photos since then, and I find artillery especially interesting.  I really enjoy identifying guns in old photos (when I can!).  I haven't built any WWI models yet, but it could happen.

Hallo everyone, I am an avid Great War researcher; particularly in the area of artillerie.  I actually have a bit in common with Peter, in that family relatives fought, and died, on both sides of this conflict.   My grandmother was Ulster Irish (Scot) and the family name Agnew bled quite a bit.  I was able to visit the Ulster memorial in Belgium some years ago, and it left me choked with emotion.   On the other side, my Grandfather exchanged letters with his cousins from Hesse, and Bremen .. before they were killed. (the Secret Service paid him a visit in 1918).  It is a most intrguing period of history; culturally, and politically.  I would suggest any indepth study of the era will eliminate preconceived attitudes of "good,  and evil powers".


Oh yes, and I model in 1/32 scale.

Hi


I am one of a growing number of 20mm WW2 wargamers who tierd of big German cats, hoards or T-34s and Shermans of late WW2 gaming and have started looking back to earlier war, and earlier wars for something a bit more fun.


Landships has proved very useful to me as the Russian Civil war, Russo Polish war and even the Spanish civil war are of interest to me. I also have a knack of collecting, building and playing the 'others' in WW2 (Hungarians, 1939 Polish, the poor belittled Italians and the like).  Once I finish my Poles I shall be making a major efforet to get my Russians and Austro-hungarians into a game-worthy state (I know, typical gamer, too many projects on the boil! none of them truely finished! )


Oh, I'm in the UK, SW edge of London. Just really dropping in to let you know that your hard work is appreciated.

Hello! I found this Forum thanks to SASH155. This site is really very interesting. I'm interested expecially in artillery and Balkan history from late 19th century to the end of WW1.

I'm 17 years old, living in Southern Germany and am interested in WW1 since... oh well 5 or 6, but also in History at all... I have some WW1 Militaria but also a Collection (or better Dioramas) of WW1 Models in 1/72. I have an absolute love for Early , brute and grotesque AFV Projects.


I am going to buy Battlefield 1942 to play Battlefield 1918.

I model in small scale, mostly 15mm and 1/7x. I have some Minifigs 15mm tanks, infantry and guns. I got into cardmodeling a couple of years ago and now have some of my own 1:76 scale models on my website:
http://www.hal-pc.org/~mccullou/cardmodels.html. I have 1:76 scale MKIV, FT17 and A7V. tanks and a Halberstadt CLII in 1:72 scale. I am changing everything to 1:72 scale and am working on a MKV right now.

I started collecting references for my library when I was a kid in the 60's. I am concentrating on WWI armor right now, so maybe I can help answer some questions. from other members.

I recommend M.A.F.V.A. to all who are not already members. Their magazine is a small-size gem of data issued 6 times a year, if a bit irregularly. I have a member off and on since 1972 or so.

The attached image is one my 1:72 scale MKIV's.

Great site Peter.....  Really injoyed reading about your great grandfather. You should be proud of him, as I'm sure you are. My interest in the Great War comes directly from playing BF-1918. A fantastic mod of a fantastic game (bf-1942). I never knew about all these early armored tanks untill I played this game. I found myself playing the game just so I could see and drive these early tanks. They were awsome then and still are IMHO.


All the great reading I've done here has inspired me to start model building. I have an EMHAR Mk 4 male 1:72 I won on ebay sitting on my dining room table right now waiting construction.


Keep up the good work friend.

Nice site, the easiest of the World War One sites I have found to navigate, and provides a lot of information to fill in the enormous yawning gaps in my WW1 knowledge of anything

Hi all!
Great site! I'm often nosing around and just started looking into the forum, and am amazed and impressed by the huge amount of knowledge many of you have in the subject. Its proven to be a great help as I research for my Red Alert 2 mod, "Landship" and "model" my digital landships. Keep up the good work, one can never know too much

Great website on an interesting and much neglected subject. Even though I thought I knew something about tanks I was positively amazed how much new information I found here. Especially the photos. 


Keep up the good work.

Hi, I am Ian.

I have been interested in WW1 for ages amongst other periods and mainly scratch build 1:15th WW1 subjects, having built a Renault FT17 and a Whippet.

As my midlife crisis project, I am planning and readying to construct a 1:6th scale A7V Tank and its transport twin for radio control use.

Once the project is under way I will post some piccies of progress.

Hi all. Firstly, congratulations on such a great website, it has been of immense use in the past. Now I find myself trying to make a model of a British FT-17, circa 1918. Any ideas on colour scheme please? (sorry if this is a repeat posting from elsewhere in the guestbook, I think I followed an old link at first)

Ahoy,

I am active duty US Navy LCDR and have been doing research on a 7" naval gun (believe it is USMC). I saw an article by Mr. Tim Rigsby and hope to get some info from an expert.

The site is great!

smile Hello forum! We're new today. My wife and I are both keen explorers, mainly of Great war fortifications sites such as those at Verdun, but also in the general area of urban exploration - urbex. We are keen wreck divers too, having been lucky enough to dive Scapa Flow, Truk, Coron Bay and Bikini Atoll.

I am also a moderator on a forum dedicated to urban exploration called Derelict Places.

Not sure what we'll give to this forum or what we'll get from it but we've already answered a riddle that cropped up on our urbex forum today regarding tank 19 in Bridlington and the likely fate of the Mk III at Haslingden, the search for which we were personally involved with in the early days before we moved.

All the best to the members!

I am a military and wargaming enthusiast and yetWW1 is one of the least covered subjects throughout my life, outside of those 900 plus tomes I brought to elementary school.

I found your site to be an interesting study into the completely insane (yet somehow understandable) WW1 AFV concepts. While a site for model kit reviews, they also do much service to the armchair military historian by going into very deep detail into the history of each vehicle.

To learn the Ford Model T chassis was 'the best' armored car for the Russian front was entertaining, so say the least.

Keep up the great work!
