August mag - nice work!
Posted by theflame on Thursday, June 18, 2009 6:34 PM

Really enjoyed the August mag - great work guys!  Cool to see a new 'face' taking over Bench Racer - cant wait to see where Andy takes that!  Tim's article, as always, was the first i read and my favourite, and I cant wait for his article on sectioning next month.  As always, it was a great read, and I'll no doubt go back to it every couple of days and enjoy it again until the next one comes out.

Only small criticism - the cover wasnt the most exciting I've ever seen on the mag, even though both the builds were beautiful in their own right...the colours didnt really pop and make it jump off the shelf for me.  Lets see some crazy colours on the cover...some metallic oranges, Tamiya lime metallic green (the one with a bit of a gold flip to it), some wild flames or scallops... some amazing airbrush work...just a little eye candy would be the icing on the cake for me - blow us away Jim/SA Graphic Designers!

Anyway, slightly facetious nit-pick aside, keep up the great work!

 Thanks for the kind words. Much appreciated. Contest Cars is being worked on now, and comes out October-ish.

Mine just came i the mail this week also. I really liked the cover,personally. Like stated above,I liked the old and new muscle. I haven't built/bought either of those RMX kits,the Firebird 400 or the Shelbys/Bullitt Mustangs (I do still have a couple GTs in the stash though),I should remedy this!

 I really enjoyed Bench Racer,the contest coverage,and the buildups (all 3!!!),I think you guys did a bang-up good job. I haven't sat down at the bench since warm weather hit (despite a disability,I'm a very avid mtn biker...),the August issue really has some desire to build flowing,thanks Jim and crew! Make a Toast
