An Airfix 1/72 doubledecker from the eighties… should work
this has happened before
It is fixed now, but all the people who clicked “interested” early, have to reclick.
I have a mess of WWI armor in my stash. I will have to see how my other campaigns go before I commit.
Failed to start on the last one - hopefully I’ll do better this time!
Excellent! I am in with a Model T Ambulance purchased for the Great War 2023 Campaign.
I’m thinking either the CSM Belgian Minerva, probably in the 3-tone cammo. Just need to source some extra bits like Hotchkiss ammo boxes, stowage and figures.
Or The ICM Ford-T Ambulance. Pretty much everything I need for a little diorama is in the box already.
I dunno, my dance card for next year is already pretty full. But maybe?
Nice. Tell me about your Spad VII kits, please…
What would you like to know? They’re the Roden 1/32 kits. I have the Lafayette and French AF boxes to do Lufbery and Guynemer. Some day…
Pretty typical Roden kits, nice detail (not WNW, but still) and, as I understand it, rather finicky to build. But which Great War aircraft isn’t? They get good reviews and are good representations of the real thing.
Oh. I was hoping they were 1/48. Still, it would be nice to see one built. Just sayin’…
Oh, I see. Yeah, I gave up on 1/48 WWI a long time ago. Too small for me to do the rigging with my fumble fingers. I understand the Special Hobby SPAD VIIs are nice, but for me SH kits can be tricky enough without adding in struts and extra wings!
I am in! Maybe another tank or a biplane
Now that I think about it - would a diorama with the finished tank from WWI 2023 be allowed as an entry?
I’m open to that idea… maybe. Tell me more about what you have in mind.
I’ll probably do another plane but that early armor is so tempting. Do we have anyone who wants to step in with a ship for this one?
The diorama would be typical WWI groundwork with barbed wire and shell craters. I think I have a figure or two to fit. Maybe a trench if I can pull it of.
That’s the basic idea
I think that will be fine.
Horridoo, I am joining the fray with my A7V Sturmpanzerwagen and its full (well almost) crew posing in front of it
Will be February or March when I will start it because I just started my Admiral Graf Spee at Modelshipwrights and this will keep me off the streets from some day already
For the Kaiser!
