    Hello,<br>
    <br>
    I don't really remember when, probably around 1998.<br>
    I found the List during my search for Albatros C.III Dragodile
    marking. And this is the first model that I added to the gallery.<br>
    <br>
    All the best,<br>
    Eric

        to thank him for starting this "Topic".  I believe I first
        encountered "The List" sometime around 1998 or 1999 after I was
        transferred from the USS JOHN F. KENNEDY CV-67.  I was heavily
        into WW1 1/72 scale modeling and I found this site on the
        "web".  I loved all the photos in the gallery that were posted
        and many of them were very inspirational to me.  It wasn't until
        after I had retired from the NAVY that physically joined "The
        List".  That was around 2001 or 2002.  Then the emails came
        along with the "characters" behind them.  I've got to meet many
        of them in person.  Ernest Thomas was easy since he was from my
        hometown of New Orleans and I would travel to there from time to
        time.  I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE!  Ernie is NOT "The
        Anti-Christ"!  He is the "Heretic"!  Let's get that correct! 
        The majority of the members that I had personally met was in
        2005 when the IPMS USA NATS was held in my current hometown of
        Atlanta, Georgia.  Andy Roberts and I basically had a section
        (table) in the Model Display Area to host the WW1 MODELING
        MAILING LIST.  I think for the most part it was successful.  I
        know Dame Karen took many photos and they are still accessible
        in the Photo Archive of "The List".  Great Times!  Yes, times
        have changed as far as what this format for modeling forums was
        all about, but it grew into the likes of the current social
        media outlets.  However, with the friends that I got acquainted
        with on "The List" have pretty much followed me.....or maybe I
        followed them to these other sites!  Alan Wright, thank you for
        keeping "The List" alive and available!  By the way I still have
        a few of the WW1 Modeling Mailing List "Buttons" that John
        Huggins used to sell or give out!  Who else has some of those?</div>
