Remembering. . . .

Remember in 2014 how the centenary was going to be commemorated? The BBC was going to run a Great War item every day for four years. Airfix were going to bring out new artillery, new figures, new dioramas. What else didn't happen?

Lest they forget.

AFAIK, Airfix, (or at least the parent company), have gone bust...again!!!

And Zvezda also announced WW1 subjects were being developed for their range, and then withdrew references. My hopes were briefly raised...

Ah, I'd forgotten about Zvezda. What was it they promised?

At least the Italeri no-show means there isn't yet another "FT 17" on the market . . . 

We've been waiting 10 years or more for the Strelets A-H Honved cavalry, and the Caesar French infantry haven't materialised.

In Arthur Ward's book about Airfix, he states that one of the (1/76th scale) vehicle models muted, was a WWI Rolls Royce armoured car!!! I think they missed a trick there!!!

Zvezda promised a small combat groups in hard plastic. The quality of sculpting of their existing groups is outstanding, and usually done with separate parts for arms, etc. Usually a small number of poses, but useful and easy to modify.

I think Airfix had prototypes of a Rolls Royce in 1/32, but 1/35 was becoming the dominant scale (just as 1/72 has largely displaced 1/76).
