• Pardon the dust while the boys rebuild the site.

    The board will be in a state of disarray as I get things sorted out, for a little while at least.

    The new incarnation is using Xenforo as the system software. It is much like what we are used to, with a few differences. I will see about making a FAQ to help point out the differences for the members.

     

    One IMPORTANT difference for all of us old timers is that the 'mail' system is replaced with what are called 'conversations'/

    There is no 'Inbox' or 'Out box' or 'Sent' folders anymore.

    Think of Conversations as private 'threads' or topics that don't exist in a forum, that you start with another member. NOTE: Conversations can include more than one member if you or someone else in the conversaion, likes.
    Takes a little getting used to but I am sure you all can get a hang of it.

     

    Only a slightly modified default default Xenforo style is available for now. Once the new SAG style is ready it will be available.

    All existing users should be able to login with their usernames and passwords once the site goes up.

     

    If anyone has difficulties logging in please contact me at sixthvanguard@gmail.com.

     

    Thank you for your support and patience. I know it has been a loooong road.

Cavalry photo shoot

The_Dutchman

Company Commander
Hello gents,

I know some of you don't like to venture onto facebook so here are a bunch of pictures for you. This photo shoot was taken in 3 stages and took a about 6 hours to complete. It shows an early war cavalry column with two HF.1 wagons and a HF.13 fieldkitchen plus limber. Enjoy the pictures!
This first set of pictures shows the head of the column with the commanding officer talking to a Feldgendarmerie.

All these pictures were taken inside on a dedicated 'set' that was made available by two follow collectors Guus en Theo.
Here are a few pictures of the set.

WOW Dutchman, that is simply grand work on all accounts. I'll definitely be taking a page or two out of your work when I, finally, get to putting my field kitchen together for next year's 'D-Day' theme. Superb, now to clean the drool off my keyboard. Thanks for sharing, Steve
 
Also, out of interest, where did you get the instructional plates for the Feldkuche?. I've been trying to source accurate ones of these for years and, to-date, yours are the best I've seen (having to make do with photocopied and sized imagery from Schiffer's great book on the subject). Inquisitively, Steve

Thanks for the compliments Steve. I got the instruction-plates from a Facebook group of people that own/restore german fieldkitchens. One of them had new metal instruction-plates created and he kindly sent me the graphics-file so I could print my own.
You'll need a magnifying glass to read the instructions!
 
That studio is a fantastic set up. I was amazed with the pics, and the reveal explained a lot. Thanks for sharing!
 
Very nice photos, taken at a good angle. I appreciate all the detailing done to the pieces. B&W and a little grainy would appear very convincing.

Awesome!!😲

I'd love to have/build one of those wagons...

Congratulations for a great collection!!
