WW1 Modelling

If you've been looking for some interesting WW1 subject scenes, perhaps thinking about the new Tamiya and Takom tank kits, here's a site with many interesting photos. I've included a few here, but there are many categories listed, some perhaps more useful to modellers than others, but all with a sharp historical edge.

  1. that first one is awesome...the last of the mans wars...more of a gang fight than a war after they got across no-mans land and into the opposing trench...i think these were the greatest generation

  2. What kind of an aircraft does the wing go to? Taube?

  3. The wings in post #1 are not from a 'Taube' - it was a monoplane, this was clearly a biplane. It may have been an Austro-Hungarian aircraft type, as there is no complete white background to the underwing cross... my first impression was a licence-built Albatros B.II, but the trailing edge serration is overly exaggerated for that type, unless it is as a result of battle damage. Not sure about that either, though, as the pattern of the trailing edges appear to mirror each other, suggesting a design feature rather than damage.
