The Ro 37 was an all-metal two-seater with fabric-covered wings, tail and fuselage, and an aluminum paneled nose section. A streamlined, articulated, split-axle undercarriage was fitted, with closely spatted wheels. The aircraft weighed 3432 lbs (1560 kg) empty and 5269 lbs (2395 kg) fully loaded. It spanned 36 ft 4 in (11.2 m) and had a wing area of 338 sq ft (32 m²). It was 28-ft 3-in (8.7-m) long.
This is a great reference on the battles and its
participants and is an excellent general site for
Victorian era British Army information

Last week, Bill unveiled his British Aeronef force: http://pauljamesog.blogspot.com/2008/10/new-britis-aeronef-fleet-commissioned.html
This week, he shows off his new Frenchies, along with close-up pics of both fleets!
I think they are lovely, nicely detailed and crisply finished
Another great find by Tas!
This is a new war, a war of mechanization, new innovation and....dinosaurs!
"Set during the early days of World War 1, the technology of warfare takes a surprising turn as battlefields quake not with the sound of tanks but shudder to the roars of DINOSAURS!"
Thanks to TAS for this one!

"Police Sergeant Bentley knocked at the door. It was opened, Bentley went in. After a few seconds there was a blaze of a revolver, flashes and shots. A whole gang of people [probably only four] raced out except for one man who took cover. There was a furious struggle, with the [unarmed] police going for their men even as they were being hit again and again by bullets. One member of the gang shot another by mistake, and at this they ran for the entrance to the street, dragging their wounded comrade with them, while injured and dying policemen were helped by the first people to come out of the surrounding houses.
"Things were so confused that the gang managed to get away, and it was not until about midnight that Detective Superintendent Ottaway arrived with a group of armed policemen..."

The Nikolaus August Otto Mars Pattern Luft-Unterseeboot
Weight:58 tonnes unloaded, 66 tonnes loaded
Range: 220 miles with loaded high performance coal, 460 miles with Martian grey coal
Crew: 1 engineer, 1 driver, 2 able hands, 1 commander
Speed: Top speed of 18 Aerial Knots
Armour: Steel plate varying from 12mm to 55mm.
The Luft-Unterseeboot is an unusual design. With very few crewmen the ship can be vulnerable to boarding parties. A problem that has been overcome by having the driver and one of the able hands enclosed in a separate compartment beneath the main body.
Although slow the Luft-Unterseeboot packs a punch. Designed primary to attack ground targets it’s a silent and deadly sight on any battlefield.
