MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Hello Dave,

     You seem to be a man with answers. My name is Dale Schwettmann (Dale361). I'm new to your forum. I've completed everything in my profile that I can but still show 50% completed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

                                 Thanks, Dale


  2. Went shopping for 1/4" SAE washers at "home improvement" center. Look at the ones in the bag. Those are labeled 1/4", but they're a bit bigger. (I'm guessing 8mm) Open the box because when you have British cars, you need washers. Same thing. Wrong size. The bonehead buyers never realize they're getting ripped off by their suppliers. Will be going to the real hardware store where they know the right sizes.
  3. We (MCM) are seriously unhappy with the delivery situation, but at this point in time, there isn't a lot we can do about it. Northern Europe and Australia are particular trouble areas. I strongly suspect that the US Postal Service is the problem for reasons I won't go into here. There have been improvements, but we still have some areas of the US with chronically slow delivery. Getting the magazine mailed out turns out to be a surprisingly complex activity.
  4. It's okay to post higher resolution pictures. We have disk space for this purpose. Similarly, we don't have a limit on the number of pictures. So far, this hasn't been a problem, but if it does, we'll address it then. The board will only load them as you scroll them into view. (aka lazy loading) this enables us to use high res images with much less impact that they used to have.
  5. If you click the "X" to close the dialog, it doesn't update the page. There's a link on that notice to see the replies. You can also refresh the page in the browser to see the new replies.
  6. There hasn't been any coverage for a while. It's on our wish list, but we need someone in the area who can photograph the models well, and write the captions.
  7. 216 was delivered to the post office and should be on its way to you. Hot rods caught our attention for this issue, and there is still a nice assortment of other topics to pique your interest. We hope you enjoy it!
  8. Congratulations to all three of you. Parenthood is challenging, but ultimately, it's the best thing you'll ever do.
  9. Not specifically. I think it's fair to say that things in the field change quickly, and are not altogether suited to the magazine's publication schedule. You can expect us to revisit the subject from time to time with more in-depth information than you usually see online.
  10. Came across this on an astronomy forum --
  11. Very interesting. I never heard of this before. Now who makes a '63 Pontiac Tempest.? . . . .
  12. I think everyone's on their best behavior for the rehearsal dinner. They will save their problematic behavior for holidays and other recurring special occasions. 🙂
  13. Unfortunately, it looks like you missed the renewal window for 215. You have 6 issues remaining starting with 216.
  14. You can order them at https://www.modelcarsmag.com/back-issues-2/
