Yo Nick,

I think you should submit the how to on making the trailer hitch. I've used your system and it works very well.

But it would be good to share with fellow model builders. I followed your instructions & pics without a problem. Come on. You can do it.

I used it on a Ford F150 that hauls the scratch built teardrop trailer. I'll have to take some pics - I'll try to get them up tomorrow.

Thanks Nick. It certainly wouldn't have happened if you didn't post the trailer hitch how-to. Please consider submitting the how-to article.

Nick,

Just write what you know. try to be clear and simple as possible and submit your article.
EVERYONE gets edited in one way or another. Somebody editing will punch up your writing if it's not up to what you feel are publishing standards.

Be confident.

Pat's right–EVERY feature is edited, some more than others, but they all are. More important than writing style is GOOD photos. We can rewrite bad text; we can't reshoot bad photos! And there's only so much I can do with Photoshop.

This is why you have no pics from me from NNL Motor City #5. I think I blew it on the pics (and I still cannot figure out the FTP upload site :( ;))

If you have ever thought about seeing your work in the magazine some day, NOW IS YOUR CHANCE!!!!

We are looking for some "how-to" type articles to feature in upcoming issues.

If you have a technique, trick, or tip that would be of interest to others, you might have what it takes to be featured in the magazine. Whether we can use your work depends on the quality of the photos you can provide, and how interesting and/or useful your "how-to" is.

If you're interested, send me a PM and I'll spell out the details for you. You just might see your work in an upcoming issue of MCM! Posted Image


I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE AN OPPERTUNITY FOR A SHOT AT MAYBE A PROFILE OF MY AND THE VARIOUS STYLES AND METHODS IN WHICH i build.paint body work,kitbashing,scratchbuilding and so on.I have built several very nice models that I feel would be a credit for an article such as this,just not sure how to go about doing it,any help would be appreciate,thansksnagain Randddddy

Guys, there is one thing I want to bring up, and it has been an issue and problem before.
We do pay a per-page rate after publication, which is a lot higher than any other magazine out here based on CPM, but, and yes, this is the big butt, if it's a "look at me" piece, or a piece that was not requested beforehand, it is considered to have been sent in "gratuitously".
We want to feature 'how-to's" where our readers will learn new tips, tricks, and techniques, not just a showcase or profile of someone's build.
If this is a problem, then please discuss this with me personally before submitting or considering your article for submission.

Thanks.
