Scale Auto Back Issues on DVD
Posted by 67 Mmustang on Saturday, February 16, 2013 2:56 AM

I was reading a thread on one o the forums and someone wrote that Scale Auto's sister magazine, Fine Scale Modeller,  has produced a DVD with EVERY back issue of FSM on it.  I don't know about everyone else, but personally, I'd jump at the chance of purchasing such a product. Is Scale Auto planning to follow FSM's lead? I have gaps in my Scale Auto Collection and this would be a fantastic way to fill the  voids. Also, it would free up some space in my hobby room for something else, like more kits.

Sorry but there are no plans for a DVD set at this time.

Too bad, it sounded like a great idea to me, and I'd be willing to bet that I'm not the only one that would purchase a DVD with every issue from the first issue to let's say, the December 2012 issue on it. Then, every year you could release a new annual DVD with the previous year's issues on it. Might be something to consider.

Yes... Model Railroader did that a year or so ago as well. I don't know how they are handling updates, but they did back issues all the way to the beginning on DVD. I'd think that something similar would be a great idea for SAE to consider!

And it also provides another revenue source.

I too am jealous of FSM's DVD.  I'd sign up for a Scale Auto DVD in a heartbeat!

Sorry but there are no plans for a DVD set at this time.

I'm hoping on an update since this was four years ago.  Any plans on a DVD set now?
