I got the April issue today and must say that I enjoyed your April Fool's article on BUE MAGIC Paint Stripper. Only $22 per quart plus shipping... What a bargain...!!! And it took off EVERY SPECK of Tamiya Black paint... amazing stuff huh..??

I'm sure there are other April Fool's things in this issue, but this one is the only one that really jumped out at me.

Thanks for the smile.

So I'm guessing you're not going to buy any?

BTW... it's no joke.

It would be cheaper to buy a new kit. They want $22.00 plus $18.00 shipping. If/when they ever price it for the real world (mine) I'd consider buying it.

Sorry you felt it was a joke.
I swear by this stuff now, and I use it for almost everything now.
I have stripped over 20 bodies so far, and it's still going strong.
It may take a bit longer, maybe a few hours more than when I first started, but it's worth it.
So, no, it's not a joke.
When I do an April Fools, it's a whole lot bigger than that!!!!!

Next year, for sure....
Right, Harry?
:-)

I was just wondering why Adults would put an Aprils Fools joke in a magazine that people paid money for to learn and enjoy the hobby ? I do not want to be the fun sponge or fun governor but it is a paid subscription to a Model Cars Magazine not Mad Magazine ! This post is a good reason .

Seriously dude, lighten up. SAE used to run April Fools articles annually, and I hope MCM does the same, as the owners of SA now wont, and I miss the fun. After all, isnt this hobby supposed to be fun??
