The Great War Group Build 11/11/17 to 11/11/18

Post by Philipp Gross »

I guess it was inevitable from the start, but we're going to have a WW1 Group Build. Time to formally announce it then :D

The timeframe as suggested will be November 11 to November 11, the last year of the Great War, to the day a full 100 years later. As far as armoured vehicles are concerned, this was probably the most exciting period of the war.

However, this one will be free for all subjects and all scales, inclucing ships, airplanes, land vehicles, tanks and figures. Build what you want, as long as it was in service between August 1914 and November 1918.

Sounds easy enough, right? Yeah, well...

I'm still open to suggestions how we should deal with the use of WW1 materiel after the war, especially with subsequent conflicts that were directly caused by WW1, like the Russian Civil War for example.

Personally I'd tend towards including these, but on the other hand I see enough reasons to keep things limited to the "big one" itself. Opinions are very welcome on this matter.

Having said that, here's my entry:

I'll be using the Hobby Boss kit of the late version St. Chamond tank along with ICM French Infantry in gas masks:

What about you?

I’m in, Meng’s Renault FT-17 with full interior for me. It’s been sitting in the stash for far too long. Planning to do it as a wreck so I can expose the interior.

As usual I reserve the right to change my mind....WingNut Wings does a very nice line of WWI planes based on Peter Jackson’s collection so thinking of supporting local!

How about building it? :P :lol: :lol: :lol:

That being said, the early French tanks weren't exactly durable, so plenty of opportunities to build a burned out wreck :twisted:

Think I'll have a go with this one. Looking at a Mk.IV tank but converting it into a supply version.

Thema of subsequent conflicts is very intersting,for example Russo-Polish war in 1920. Battle for Warsaw in means Wonder over Wisla, capital river of Poland. There were used improvised vehicles like this one.
