Be lucky you can buy it at a LHS.  In Winnipeg Canada you can't buy it anywhere. Only was you can get it to subscribe which right now is not affordable to me

on a fixed income. Our country and province tax the daylights out of you...

I like MCM the best of any magazine I have ever bought.  I never could understand why so many magazines post date them by 3 months and then you read about an event that happened 6 months ago. I think MCM is at least keeping it honest in real time although, my November issue didn't arrive till near the end of the month and I still can't find it at the newsstand or LHS for an extra copy. Hopefully MCM is still growing, keep up the good work!

yeah same old same old thats why i no longer subscribe to this one always got it 2 months after everyone else

 

That's because the other rag is always two months in advance. Perhaps they are off set for a good reason.

Magazine dates are posted several months ahead to increase their shelf life in stores.

I just dont understand the animosity some of you have for SA.  If not for it, there would be no MCM.  They both have thier place in the hobby.

How do you figure that?

By memory there was talk of a digital edition of ModelCarsMag some time back.  Has there been any developments on that ?

That's Gregg's pet project, you'd have to ask him.

SA, or I should actually say SAE, and it's sister magazine, Car Modeler, got the ball rolling on a new resurgence for the hobby.  I really wonder if not for those two magazines, would there be MCM.  Just a opinion.  I still dont see any answers as to why the hostility.

I think the animosity/hostility towards SA is more towards the editor rather than the magazine itself. His sometimes ridiculous moderation of the forum has turned a lot of people against him and in turn, the magazine. I'm just speaking from my own personal experience. Someone else's reason may be different.

I buy both magazines every issue, but I never go to the other forum. "Nuff sed".

I started subscrubing to SAE back in 90. I also oerdered all the back issues, and got to talk with Gary personally,on the phone and he is really a nice guy! I sent him a wedding card when he married his seceratary. He was one of the nicest guys I had the pleasure to talk with. After he sold SAE to Kalmbach, they dumped Car Model magazine and the rest is history. Personally I feel MCM is the better of the two, they are a more freindlier, seems to be made by modelers FOR modelers. After meeting whats his face at least 5 times at the NNL's, he STILL seems to act like he's doin you a favore just by taklkin to you. Don't like folks who are to full of themselves and pretentious. Others seem to act like he's a god or somethin. Just a rude old man to me!
