Hello and welcome to Schwerpunkt.

This forum is for research and discussion of Axis armour subjects from WW2 - so please feel free to post.

We want this forum to be a place where people are free to discuss Axis armour in an open and friendly environment, free from flaming and general nastiness.

So, thanks and welcome!

The Schwerpunkt Team.

Wellllll...... let me be the first

to welcome you - though the thought of you having your own site is a little frightening.  Looking forward to some good content and some good critiques in the future.  Let me know how I can help.

The site is very much a joint effort between Jon, James, Tony, Don and I - so yes the 5 of us running a site does sound a little frightening - in a good way I hope!

Uhmm...someone left the door open.....

...and said that it would be ok if I just wandered around and helped myself to whatever was in the 'fridge.

Howdy guys, (Sam, Sheeds, Andrew, LQ, and those I have yet to meet) Paul sent me this link on the sly. I hope that it was ok to stop on by and take a peak. Looks like a fun project full of friendly faces.

Have a great weekend guys, talk to you soon.

Hello guys!

Great news that you all have taken this step and created this new place. Hopefully it will enjoy a long and healthy life. Also the less said about the "alternatives" the better.

Still being moderated by Sheeds gives me the willies....

Yes welcome indeed!

After quite a few years sabbatical, I'm glad to be roped out of hibernation and warmly welcome everyone to our new little project - a German AFV reference and model site run by 4.5 Aussies

Hopefully we can establish friendly boards with a high level of discussion and willingness to contribute to promote research into the real vehicles and to improve our attempts to model them.

Now my co-host Mr.Bailey - JB 1, is currently gallivanting across the battlefields of Belgium, France and Germany prior to Euromilitaire where I'll join him next week, so I'm sure the other lads will keep an eye on the boards while we are away.

But in the meantime please feel free to get the ball rolling, and heres to a long and rosy future for these forums to share and learn about what we all love.

So enjoy and all the best,

JB No.2

for we have all missed your informative contributions and humour in such forums for so long. Well done Jon, Don, Sheeds, Sam and Jim for getting your heads together and formulating this site, a great effort. I look forward to seeing it grow and prosper, and I'll get the word out up here in the north. All the best.

what a great idea, I have emailed the link to some MAFVA bods in London for them to get on board.
This is a long time coming, all the best from the guys at AMMS Brisbane.

Great stuff

September 15 2008, 9:40 AM 

Great idea, let's all execute it (so to speak)...

Do new posts go to the top, or is it like ML?

suggestion box...

September 15 2008, 9:44 AM 


it seems they don't, is it easy/and or better to have new posts going to the top of the forum, so that popular threads will be easier to find once things 'heat up' a bit?

Also, can we add the ability to edit our own posts?

Just wondering and hoping this isn't too difficult or expensive...???

What does everyone else think

New Posts to the top? Y/N
Edit you own posts? Y/N

Hi Steve,

At massive expense and operating at the limits of our IT  expertise we have made the changes you demanded. The bill's in the post. Anything else?!

Otherwise, I'm fine.

Nice to bear witness to this little "big bang" and the start of a new - and very likely - educational forum.

I speak for the fellow leaches who come on and take what we can but are too ignorant/intimidated to contribute positively. We raise our glasses!

Hope to post soon and look forward to participate.
