The 2012 Feb Issue
Posted by SupernovaSS on Thursday, January 05, 2012 6:52 PM

I first started subscribing to ScaleAuto in June of 2011 and since then, the August 2011 issue has always been my favorite.  Until yesterday.  Now the Febuary issue is the new leader.  The Chevy issues, kit reviews, and T&T were all very useful and well done.

Congrats on another job well done!

Rosco: "My, my. What a horrendous crash. Another one of my vehicle's scuffed."

On the drawing board:  '68 Caddy Deville

On the bench: Monogram USS Voyager NCC-74656 Whistling

Completed recently: '68 Dart GTS

Glad you liked the issue! Hope we keep making you change your mind about which one is your favorite, though!

I have to agree. The Feb issue was to be my last issue but it renewed my faith in SAE enough that I renewed for 3 yrs.! Good job folks! (Now let's see some 4x4 builds).

I feel this latest issue was the best I have seen in many years. The reason? Specificity. For example, in the build-up of the Nova on the cover there were descriptions of the EXACT materials used to fabricate the brake lines and in the ways to speed up a build, the products were mentioned BY NAME and even better, there were photos so I can recognize them on the shelves when I go to find them in the store. For some reason there had been a tendency in the past to say things like "such and such was fabricated from stock..." That is not very helpful if I am trying to duplicate the process. In this issue, however, I read language that was much more helpful.

I get something useful with every issue but this time was better than I expected. My only criticism is I would have liked to see an expanded review of either the Hudson Hornet or the Lonestar kits by Moebius. Moebius seems to be very serious about listening to the modeling community and should have been rewarded with a bit more space in the issue. Perhaps that can be rectified when the Chrysler 300 is released?

Overall, nice job this time.

Why can't I stand to slap these things together like I did as a teenager? On the bench 1930 Packard 734 Speedster Victoria, 1932 Duesenberg J Judkins Coupe, 1934 Ford Cabriolet, 1926 Ford Model Ts-the complete set of all six bodystyles.

Seeing as how the Hudson & Lonestar have only been out a couple of months I'm sure there was not enough time to do an extended review.

Being a FORD man I was happy to see the 67 Mustang Trans-Am amongst all the Chevys Smile, Wink & Grin I'm not knocking the issue , just being the wise guy I am. Laugh
