Journal 69 was 2003. He was still listed at the same address in the 2009 Kulmbach Almanack but still with no email or website. They didn't have the list of editors in the 2011 Almanack.
I believe that the Swedish firm of Tengjuteriat Mars used to do a lot of World War I stuff - there was an article in Journal 40 with a picture of a British WWI tank. They have been out of production for many years but I heard they may be resurrected. Perhaps someone can tell us?

There were some figures shown in Journal 69 by Pioch. The address given is  'Hanseatische Zinnfigur', Hans-Peter Pioch, Preiss Strasse 1, 23558 L├╝beck

(Following up on my reply):

I went to the Kieler link and quickly found the following:

Sd 51a German (steel helmet) 10.5cm field howitzer
Sd 78a German heavy mine thrower
Sd 86 German 10.5 cm "Langrohrkannone" (which is what in English?)
Se 112 English (steel helmet) field gun
1909 French (steel helment) 22cm howitzer

There are more.

Hope this helps.

Scott

I seem to remember a German heavy mortar in one of the journals.  I will take a look see.

  Does any one make models of the Heavy Artillery that the Germans and English used doing the First World War ? I know that they are made for 28mm scale by Great War Miniatures.  These would make a great set to paint. Also since next year is the 100th anniversary  of the Great War. Willie
