Hi Gang,
just saw a TV report on a project of many European Filmarchives for the start of the first World War. http://www.europeanfilmgateway.eu/node/33/efg1914/multilingual:1/showOnly:video
I am sure that one will find some inspiration for models and dioramas.

Thanks for the link H.H. ! I'm not really into WW1 stuff, but some footages are amazing.

Here's one featuring Schneider CA-1 (first French tank) and Saint-Chamond tanks :

Ugly little boxes....
Char Schneider would make a good APC, too.
@ Miniart and Masterbox: How about some tank crews?

First I had typed "bigger" in my post, but I checked out the dimensions for both :

The CA-1 is 6,32m long, 2,05m wide and 2,30m high

The A7V is 7.34m long, 3.1m wide and 3,3m high

..So the latter is not that bigger (but it looks more impressive to me !)
