My thread about Model Cars Magazine's survival quite rightly got locked!

Hi guys. My thread about Model Cars Magazine's survival has rightly been locked by a moderator. It was going too far off subject, so guys please be aware of the original thread subject when posting replies.

Not heard anything about MCM lately. Guess they must still be hanging in there.

Hi MProwler. You pretty much confirmed what I thought about MCM. I have given up on them after personal article payment issues and not been on their circulation list for a couple of years now. Looks like they are still struggling just to keep going. Perhaps their article writer pool has shrunk considering their production and distribution problems. Who knows?

Yep. Its me lol. I quit subscribing at least 3 or 4 years ago. Every issue late and damaged. Sick of Hutchings excuses. He was late when he ran Plastic Fanatic too.

Hi Prowler it's the current MC M subscribers I feel sorry for getting a raw deal. Maybe it is heading for the proverbial iceberg like the Titanic as the subscribers get fed up with always waiting and dump their subscriptions due to the poor service already paid up front for.

I spoke with a contributor just this past weekend. He explained to me that he has still not been paid for articles that he wrote last year. But somehow, they have convinced him to keep doing coverage .. I considered subscribing late last year, but when I did my homework I realize that it really went to crap and it was a total roll of the dice see if you would actually get your issues or not .. I don't gamble casinos, I'm not going to gamble on a damn magazine subscription

"rare" kit? no such thing!

build it, dont let it sit on the shelf.....

you cant take it with you, hearses dont have luggage racks......

I don't understand how they can have such an active forum and be struggling.  I wish this one was as active.  

What are some other resources for a newb like me to learn from other than the two forums, Scale Auto Magazine (which I am a subcriber) and Youtube?  I am hungry for knowledge and just can't get enough from these places (though I am looking forward to the DVD coming with all the previous issues.
