Timecast Upcoming Move to New Premises

Upcoming Move to New Premises, Timecast

Due to the redevelopment of our existing site, we will be moving into new premises at some point in May-June. Although this will involve some disruption to our production and service, it does mean that we will have a bit more room and will also help us keep costs down.

We are still at the planning stage at the moment, but as soon as we have any firm dates, we will post the details on our website news page.

Park Day: Photo Contest, Reflections, and More Events

Park Day: Photo Contest, Reflections, and More Events

Thank you to all of the sites and volunteers that participated in our 22nd Annual Park Day on Saturday, April 7th! A record-breaking 157 battlefields and historic sites across 32 states and the District of Columbia took part this year, including Civil War, Revolutionary War, and War of 1812 sites.

Keeping our historic sites preserved and pristine is a collective responsibility requiring communal effort. This year, nearly 7,000 volunteers across the country came out to do their part, donating over 25,000 hours of volunteer work.

At Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield in Republic, Missouri, 56 volunteers helped with fence construction, stream clean up, and housekeeping work in the park's library and living history clothing and equipment cache. Ultimately, an entire dump truck load of trash was removed, and a total of 265 feet of rail fence were put up.

At Buford Massacre Battlefield in Lancaster, South Carolina, seventy JROTC students and members of the community came out to help clear brush, rake leaves, and pick up trash. Volunteers also cleaned markers and picnic tables.

And at Mine Creek Battlefield in Pleasanton, Kansas, 37 volunteers helped wash windows, clear 2.5 miles of trails, and clean storage areas.

If you have any photos of the events, remember to enter our Photo Contest here. You can help us document this year’s success and be eligible to win special prizes! We’ll be announcing the winners in a few weeks. Keep checking back to vote for your favorites!

Historic sites rely heavily on the dedicated work of volunteers, and your hard work will make a difference for years to come. Thank you again!

If you were not able to participate on April 7, you may still have a chance! Due to weather postponements, Park Day events will continue throughout the rest of April and into May. Find a participating site on our website.

1/144 Belgian Light Armoured Train from Van Dyck Models

In addition to our upcoming WWI ranges we would like to share with you some images of a Belgian Light armoured train no release date yet.

Early after the outbreak of the war the decision was made to build several armoured trains. At least three light and three heavy armoured trains were build. These are somewhat forgotten weapons and have never been build as a model kit either.

 Anyway we are building the "light" armoured train that consisted of a front wagon 18 meters long with a 57mm Nordefeld rapid firing gun at the front and a Hotchkiss machine gun on both sides. The only surviving image of this train shows this wagon (see below).

Then came the locomotive, "type de l'état 15" and later "type 32".

After the locomotive came another small wagon 6 meter long with a Hotchkiss machine gun at the back.

 Have a look at the first images:
