I don´t know when I found the list. Must have been more than 20 years ago. I think it was when I still was a student at the university.
That was like 25 years ago. :-D
I’m mostly lurking, but I do read most of the stuff that comes along.
Good health to you all in these trying times, Magnus

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!
