Hello all I'm a collector of WW1 Art medals. I have become fascinated by the details of these small sculptures which has lead me to this forum.

I will post a few photo's soon and feel sure that somebody here can improve my understanding of these medals.

I am a newcomer to the forum and am a WWI aircraft enthusiast to the extent that in 1988 I built a Replica Plans, 7/8th scale SE5a. I flew it to several WWI events such as the WWI reenactment site near Chambersburg, PA in '88 and 91, Aerodrome '92 and 94 in and near Guntersville, AL., and the Dawn Patrol Rendezvous at the US Air Force Museum in Dayton in '96 and '98. I flew it in the movie,Young Indiana Jones, The Attack of the Hawkmen(averybrief moment in the movie) but in 2001 it was damaged in its hangar by either dogs or coyotes trying to get a mouse in the lower left wing and I haven't repaired it as of yet due to an unfinished new shop.

In the meantime my interests have returned to the WWI RC scale model aircraft that I built prior to building the homebuilt SE5a and with it and interest in WWI trucks, specifically the Mack AC Bulldog of which I have designed and built a scale replica which will serve as my RC 'Field box'. The Mack is finished now and I have just about completed the working drawings that will be offered for sale along with a 'short kit' which will include fiberglass cab, hood fenders seats and cast resin radiator, radiator site gauge, steering wheel, kerosene lamps, spot lamp, brake lever and shift lever, and vacuum formed 12 spoke wheel covers.

For an article I'm writing for FlyRC magazine about this project I would appreciate any shots of a Mack AC, in France or Belgium during WWI. I have found precious few of them in books and the internet.

Thanks,

Fred Jungclaus

Hello,
Having browsed the excellent articles over the years I thought I should sign up and possibly contribute.

I have been modeling since the early 50's and my skills probably peaked shortly after I started, but I carry on anyway.

My interests are primarily British air, naval, land, prior to about 1940-ish. With the Centenary, I am trying to focus mostly on WW1 and particularly artillery and the associated vehicles, little of which seems to be available in 1/35 so far.

I have also gotten all my unread WW1 books, and new ones, and have since the start of the year been embarked on a (re-)reading campaign.

Anyway, I hope to learn something and to contribute.

Hello to all ! smile

I first discovered Landships in 2007 or 2008 and since then, I've been regularly coming back to the site itself and these forums to read my dose of interesting new info on WWI vehicles and tech. I love this site, purely for the fact that it's so unique, even on today's Internet. Few sites have managed to focus on WWI topics with this level of fondness and attention to detail, which is something I honestly appreciate.

I was disappointed when the site went offline for the first time several years ago. Though the forums survived, I was convinced back then that Landships is slowly done for and won't see a resurrection (outside of maybe an archived version from archive.org - I made one such for my own needs).  I'm glad the events that came afterward proved me wrong, and even though the original site and the original forums have now effectively withered away, I'm very happy to see the community as alive and kicking as ever.

I registered here on the forums already back in March 2010, but practically forgot about it since then (though I had my suspicions before I tried to register today, discovering that I've already done so). But now, I'm back for good, and while I won't be posting that often, I might show up every now and again, at least once a month. Given the beginning WWI centennary, I think there would hardly be a better time for me than this to start bookworming on WWI again. wink

Personally, I'm not that knowledgeable about model kits, given that I'm practically a newbie in this particular area. But as far as discussions on WWI history go, I'll try to contribute as best as I can. smile

 

If I can offer you guys a little present from me, here's a playlist I made, collecting videos from a reenactment last year in Výrava, here in Slovakia (20 April 2013, to be specific): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgx5PMpgonqX0lVagV1-l6hR-Eodl8ULS That same hill slope above the village that was used in the reenactment was the site of one of the local frontlines during the so-called "Easter" Battle (or "Easter Offensive") that took place in the Carpathians in March and April 1915.

Hi all,

 

I'm a modeller who builds mostly WWII stuff, but now I'm venturing into WWI.

Regards,
