[WWI] “Mojo motivater”

It was nice to get a mail from you Matt. First time that happened must have been around 1999 when you noticed my Spad 2-seaters and directed me to join the list. So that’s when I joined. That Albatros CIII sounds yummy, definitely another WW1 kit I’ll buy and not build☹
I’m trying to clear the decks now, I have a very very very late model Tummelisa in strange camouflage nearly finished, and also a Polish thingie from SBS-resin. But after that I plan a new scratch-build that will be nearly OT (on-topic Matt), and it will also be a Spad☺

(Sorry for the double email, Neil.)
I bet the newish KP (sorry, not AZ, but the same company - that organization also sent their newish Kingfisher for review as well) Albatros C.III will be in that realm, too. It looks really nice in the bag and I soon hope to have an in-box on IM. Oh, and it contains the Dragodile markings!!
Starting to feel motivated once again for on-topic modeling. (Which is it: OT or ot?)

A kit that hasn’t been mentioned much here, is the new KP kit of the LVG C.VI. That looks like a nice stress-free build, mine has Lithuanian markings from 1921, so not strictly OT, but I noticed some criticism of my last suggestion, at least this is closer.
And I agree with Eric, about the Fokker DVII, very easy to build.

I recently started the new 1/72 Fokker D.VII from Eduard, a really nice kit, easy to build.
All the best,

Thanks Matt, you provided a topic for what kit(s) does the list members recommend to get your OT mojo working again? Since I lost my right eye (detached retina) I’ve have the same issue and need some motivation (I tend to lean towards the British lattice tails and odd French a/c which aren’t exactly quick builds). So what OT kit is out there, any scale, that you found that helped to get you jump started again and back to the work bench?

I have no idea when I first started. I believe IM started in 1998 so it was sometime before that. Unfortunately my on-topic modeling has seriously waned. The past two years - with so many life changes and family affairs; lots and lots of changes, loss and and an acquisition - have been extremely rough, especially in terms of the hobby, but I'm slowly coming back. Not with anything on-topic, I'm working on other stuff to get my mojo back. Not only have I delved into the dark side, but I've also been mostly modeling in 1/144. I have one 1/72 'tweener I'll finish before I start on something for the Omaha Nats, I think in 2022. Not sure what it will be, though. I do have an AZ Albatros C.III that was sent for review, so just maybe. But I would also like to work on something French. Maybe finish something that's been in-progress for eons. MoS Type AC? Strutter (although I have never found an underside pic)? I have an Eduard D.V really close to finishing; maybe that? Who knows. Sigh...

Thanks to a few offlist messages today, I thought that the WW1 Modelling website and its mailing list are the oldest habits I keep while navigating the internet.
Since I started visiting the website, the connection to the digital world has changed a lot, as we all know it too well.
Early on, hooking up into the net meant a quite defined purpose in mind even before the "scream of a thousand robots" on the phone line meant we were ready to surf. I learned of the WW1 modelling website by a link PRINTED in a bloody magazine page! I duly followed the arcane words (curses?) and after a series of loading backgrounds, links and whatnot I finally could see the index page, sprinkled with little Albatrosen. Opening a single image in the Gallery meant a lot of patience with my slow internet connection of 1996! And of course, the mailing list archives.... what was that? Who were Sandy Adam, Lee Mensinger and John Impenna? What kind of creature was a Weier? It took me more than a year of learning the ropes to actually subscribe to the mailing list, which meant an average of 80 daily emails on my inbox!
So, how did you discovered this website and the mailing list? And when was that?
