Scale Auto closing, INFO?
Posted by 1TOYTRUK on Monday, August 3, 2020 11:25 AM

With the closing of SC, WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH THE FORUMS & ALL THE

INFO, THATS  Been Documented over the years? 
Will they still have this site? Or will they transfer it to Fine Scale?

Fine Scale is OK for the guys that are into Aircraft & Military!

However that isn't what my interests are!

Hi,

For the foreseeable future, the SCA website and Forum will both remain active. New content will be posted to the website, and, of course, members are free to share modeling experiences on the Forum.  

Regards,

Tim

The question that I have is if there is a plan for Fine Scale Modeler to add more car related content since our subscriptions are being tranferred there.

Hi Larry,

That is the plan. What the mix will look like is something that I'm still working out with Aaron Skinner. There are some other proposals we have in the work on the Scale Auto side that we're looking at. I hope to have more concrete news coming in the next couple of weeks.

Regards,

Tim

That's good. As nice as the FSM forum is, all the auto stuff is crammed into one singular category, which makes it less fun.

I have seen a number of auto modelling magazines 'absorbed' into other more general modelling publications over the years They tended to start off well with quite a bit of the absorbed magazine's influence. But realistically the absorption starts to decline very quickly when this takes place. I hope that FSM is the exception to this trend. Let's see!
