This is what I am aiming for George, the forum will still be primarily WW1 aircraft and the name of the forum will remain the same, but having the section dedicated to WW1 armour, artillery, vehicles and ships will allow non aircraft builders to join in the fun.

Mathias - yes, it is okay to post dioramas as long as it pertains to the board subjects, that is WW1 armour, artillery, vehicles (any WW1 vehicle) and ships (any water craft used in WW1)

After finishing my Roland C.II, my interests turned to warships. I have read a number of excellent books on the Naval WWI and can recommend some if anyone is interested. Injection moulded WWI ships are few. I suspect Combrig offers the best WWI kits, resin but from what I hear, very good. I'm working on  Fujimi 1:700 IJN Fuso, laid down in 1912, launched in 1914. Would this count?

What is your attitude towards figures here, Sir?

A while back I got the ICM 'French Infantry 1914' (1/35 scale) set. I got a bit done on one before the health crisis, and expect at some point to get back to it. It is a kit, injection-moulded plastic, the figures come in many pieces and must be assembled.

Not a problem Old Man, I have added associated figures to the board but they would have to be WW1.

Hello, Des,

First of All,  "Happy New Year!"

I'm pretty sure that I already know the answer, but here's a short question. In 1917, the United States decided to build a licensed version of the French FT-17 (designated the M1917) and ship these to Europe in 1918 to equip their troops on the Western Front. In the event, none got there before the war ended. The US used them up to about 1932, then put over 200 in storage. In 1940, Canada bought 250 of these vehicles as primary trainers for the influx of volunteers.

I've just completed a model of the M1917 in Canadian service, 1941. It may be that, as the design was based on the FT-17 (as modified), the model might be posted here. Alternatively, none of them served in WW1 (although the plan was to have them do so), some arriving in late November/December of 1918.

So here's my short question: would you like to have a post showing a WW2 training tank that was based on a WW1 fighting tank?  ;D

If not, no worries. Just thought I'd make the offer.  8)
Cheers!
Gary

No problems at all Gary, would love to see your tank, it is still primarily a WW1 tank.
