My last figure is 40 mm Hindenburg. The mould  belongs to Maier. In the same mould there is also a 30 mm version of Hindenburg.

One hundred years ago today the guns stopped, the war to end all wars is over and at 11 o'clock we all remember the fallen, not just for WW1 but all conflicts around the world


First photo is the coming home, then "we will remember"

We're near the end, tomorrow the war comes to an end
WW1 was the first war to use aircraft in number, first for observation and then came the fighter.
It was not the best place to be, life expectancy was not good and if you lasted a few weeks you where doing well


To days photo are fighters from the late part of the war


It is also 100 years from the RFC becoming the RAF

Yes unfortunately. People want some more color on their figures. The picture of the day is Neckels 30 mm Japanese. The moulds  now belongs to Frank Dittmar.

Bernt it looks like just you and me have figures for the Great war hahaha


Today we have "Captain Billy's Last Match"  this was a set I painted the end of the last century  :o


The east surreys attacked the trenches by dribbling their way to the German lines, Captain Billy Nevill was shot and killed with the 19,000 British who died on the first day of the battle of the Somme.

Big thanks to Bernt and Michel for posting , let's see who else can join in!!




here's todays photo, "Pals"


 
In the first month of the conflict, Major Robert White, suggested that more civilians might enlist if they were assured of serving alongside people they knew. He tested the idea locally in the city of London. In just a few days, thousands of bankers and clerks had joined the so-called ‘Stockbrokers Battalion’. At the same time, the Earl of Derby raised a battalion in Liverpool, again to great success. He coined the term ‘Pals’ and the scheme started to spread.

Thank you Brian for your time dedicated to WWI, remembering us appropriately this overwhelming period for ourascendants (my grand father was prisoner for a while, in additions to his wounds on the Eastern battlefields of France).

I hope this 100th anniversary shall be a new commitment from all our European nations to a "Never again" for our children.  The sacrifice of our parents gave us the privilege of not having a war on our grounds during or own life, unique in the History since 2300 years, I believe ....


However as far as painting, my interest in the History extends from 3000 C to 1750 AD, and I will express it for BFFS differently.
