    Seems the contents list I sometimes used has also disappeared. Often more useful than the Index.
    Shame to see the Magazine slip into obscurity, so here's the front page headings from W&T in a handy 'Ctrl+F' searchable form.

    I'm researching the Straussler made tanks right now, and a few issues of this magazine could be useful to me. However, it's not available in my country, and there's no optoin for me to look into it. Could someone provide me some scans or photos?

    Just re-reading a few W&T articles.
    Lordy we lost something with the passing of Mr Vanderveen.
    No current easily accessible MV magazine can hold a candle to what he did there.

    Thanks a million. :) Exactly what I have been looking for.

    Everything has been a comic in comparison since his passing. The only magazine where I have kept every copy.

    Anyone know what happened to After the Battle's plans for digital copies?
     
  12. von Poop

    von Poop Adaministrator Admin

    I'd not seen that.
    https://www.afterthebattle.com/magazine/wheelsandtracks.html

    Bodston & I got lucky many Beltrings ago and bought a full set each for c.£50. Best MV publication money I ever spent.
    I'd quite possibly pay again for Digital versions, as all too often you know there's a paragraph on what you want in there somewhere, but finding it's a nightmare. Fully searchable would be v nice.
    Maybe hard to Justify potential sales on a Magazine going back to 1983 to people who might not understand what it was. Not that many of the actual articles would be out of date.


    Just discovered with alarm that issue one is missing here. Hmmm.
    Phew... found. :unsure:

    No doubt about the Germans making things complicated, heavy mine destroyers. A logistical nightmare that makes a large and obvious target, nice combination :)

    Just remembered about the proposed digital version so I googled again and .... it looks as if digital versions of issues 1 to 40 are available at Pocketmags for £4.99. Note the page is linked to from the After the Battle website here: After the Battle - Wheels & Tracks
    N0te that I have not tried purchasing any yet (but will soon!)

    An update on the Pocketmags service - I have now purchased 5 issues. They can only be viewed online through "HTML 5 reader" which I find a little awkward to navigate/read, also I haven't found a useful way of printing/capturing the articles/images - still the great content of course.
    Noel
    p.s. they now cost £6.99 each

    Having just flicked through the entire run of W&T for the first time in a while; my god we lost something when that ceased publication.
    Details, oddballs, Fletcher & Vanderveen, trailers, prewar, postwar, solid news on restorations and discoveries, etc. etc. etc.
    It just makes the whole run of current MV magazines look, well, a bit lightweight & crap really.
    Hohum. Don't think we'll see it's like for intelligent MV coverage again.

    A bit ? The same in the motorcycle world. The old Bob Currie 'Classic Motorcycle' are a continuing source of reference but the recent stuff is just so much verbal diarrhoea written by stupid kids or sad old blokes who could never get their first moped to run properly. On the other hand, me have the internet now...but the bullshit filters have to be working well.

    It's that curation thing, isn't it.
    A gatekeeper like Vanderveen can't be replaced. Knew what was interesting, worthwhile, and/or useful.
