The card models webpage doesn't seem to be working properly: when I click on any of the modeller's names, all that happens is that the name turns red - the drop-down menus do not appear. Has something changed, or is it just a glitch?

 I just tried the Models section of the website with Chrome/Firefox and Safari browsers - seems to be working ok with these. I use Mac OS X 10.11 - unfortunately

I don't have a Windows machine in the house.

The menu on the models page is a vertical accordion driven by CSS - I'd try clearing out your local cache so you get a clean copy of the CSS files from the server.

Regards,

Charlie

Edit: sorry "clearing out your local cache" is "remove temporary internet files" in Microsoft speak.

A new cardmodel designer - Alexander Bondar from the Ukraine

Alexander has been releasing free 1:50 models of WW1 and Interwar subjects on Russian forums and has allowed Landships II to host his

models. I'll gradually put his models on Landships II over the next few weeks to avoid setting off a feeding frenzy among

the downloaders - I don't want to blow our monthly bandwidth allocation.

First model is a Hejaz Railway Armoured Railcar - for those with elephantine memories - there have been discussions about these

in the forum. They appear to have been constructed by German engineers from Ehrhardt armoured trucks to provide some level

of protection for trains on the Damascus - Medina railway line.

Regards,

Charlie

Another Alexander Bondar 1:50 model. This one is of the Ehrhardt Panzerkampfwagen M1906. This was a very early attempt by

Heinrich Ehrhardt to interest the German and/or Austro-Hungarian Armies in armoured vehicles. An initial proposal for an armoured

Ehrhardt truck was rejected but a similar vehicle with a 7.7cm high angle gun to attack balloons was built in prototype form. After some

initial interest the German Army eventually rejected the vehicle. 

Regards,

Charlie

I've been dribbling the Alexander Bondar models onto Landships II so I don't blow the bandwidth limits.

The bandwidth is holding up pretty well so here's another one - a 1:50 Rolls-Royce Mk.1 1920 Pattern armoured car.

Regards,

Charlie

Another Alexander Bondar model - this one is pretty obscure - the Dennis Armoured Car.

The Dennis armoured car was built in Hong Kong using the chassis of a Dennis truck about 1925 for the Hong Kong Volunteer force. It was funded by private donations and was used for policing and security until the Japanese invasion in 1941.

Charlie

Another Alexander Bondar model - this one is pretty mainstream - the Austin Series I Armoured Car.

48 Series I Austin armoured cars were ordered by the Russian Army in Sept 1914. After delivery and modification

they were deployed in the spring of 1915. The Austin is the classic Russian armoured car - two MG turrets immediately

behind the driver's cabin.

Regards,

Charlie

New month - new bandwidth allocation...

New Alexander Bondar 1:50 cardmodel.

This subject is fairly obscure - a Filtz Armoured Tractor.

This was an armoured shell dropped onto a Filtz agricultural tractor and was one of the numerous 1915 French prototype vehicles

constructed to break through barbed wire entanglements. It was a failure since a wheeled vehicle couldn't cross the cratered landscape of

the front and its trench crossing capability was slight at best.

Regards,

Charlie
