Contest Annual
Posted by High octane on Monday, June 27, 2016 12:57 PM

I ordered my 2016 Scale Auto Contest Annual today that will be available and also sent out sometime in September or October. Always look forward to recieving this issue as it has many awesome models from around the country and also abroad. Gives me a great idea what other modelers are building, and hopefully it'll give me a "spark" to get out of my current building slump.

Curious about whether it is out yet or not. I missed ordering mine when I renewed my subscription so I want to pick up one at the local LHS or Barnes and Noble, but before I try thought I'd see if it is on the shelves yet. Thanks for your answer, Del.

The Contest Annual has been out for a couple of weeks now and is always worth getting in my book (no pun intended). You can check out my build on the bottom right of page #86 as they seemed to have left out my name under the photo.

Thanks! I went out on a search and retrieve mission last Friday, and the local hobby shop has quit carrying ALL model car magazines, and the local Barnes and Noble doesn't have any on their shelves so it's looking like I'm going to have to order it on line and wait for a month or so to get it. Bummer, I really wanted to see what you have in the book after you got my curiosity peaked, (guess I'm worse than the cat).

I usually "order my copy of the Contest Annual during the summer so that it is mailed to me when it is published. I've been doing it for years and it seems to work out well for me. No fuss, no muss, no driving around lookin' for a copy.

Newsstand on-sale date for CC16 is/was 10/4, so it's out there.

Apologies for the caption error. I've never done an issue yet without an error or two, depsite cross-checks and all that. With nearly 600 captions, it's almost inevitable.

No problem Jim, as that must be quite a job assembling the Contest Annual.

Look forward to this issue each year.  Also pre-ordered and my copy arrived around the beginning of October as well.  I belong to the Performance Modeling Club in Mt. Vernon,WA and took the photos for submission to this year's issue.  Even managed to get my 1/12th scale Tamiya Matra MS-11 published.  Thanks Jim and Scale Auto for another great annual.

Regards,

David K.
