Issue #206, Contest Issue, MAILED!!!

Recommended Posts

Received my copy here in Penetanguishene, Ontario, Canada. Too bad Canada Postal Service had to wreck it by folding it (not so) neatly in half just before it got to my community mailbox.

Something seriously went wrong with the printing of this.

Having worked on the GSL group image, I'd tend to concur that the problem was in the printing. While I realize that images always look different on a computer monitor compared to a printed page, the difference here is literally night and day.

I've attached a (reduced resolution) copy of the GSL group shot here for comparison, so you can get an idea of how it sorta should have looked. (Hope that's okay, Gregg.)

Got mine last Friday the 22nd..

Canton Ohio area.

Only issue I have with the issue was some of the show pics look like they were taken in a cave at night. But there was a PSA on how to take good quality ones in the magazine so hopefully it won't happen again

Showed up today, 05650 in the Green Mountains.  Happy to have something in my hands at last!

Picked mine up today at the LHS. It's nice to have Model Cars back, but the black background on the GSL pics is a bit too arty for my taste, IMO.

Yup, got mine today. Looks really good.

Says "last issue" on the wrapping, though I personally handed over $40 to Gregg and Jairus at GSL 2017 for a two year subscription. I certainly doubt two years is measured in time and not issues, right? I mean, a subscription is not one issue a year, right?

Mike, email me. It should not say last issue on label. Send me a pic of label, if can. Please talk to me via emails.

I gather that there is another proposed 'stand alone' contest copy in the offing? Would it not be more feasable to make it one of the subscriber copies whilst trying to catch up on schedule rather than divert resources?

Mine showed up today!   Philadelphia 'burbs  zip 19341.   Kinda funny that people on other planets got theirs before me and I live in a major population area!

I owe Gregg a big apology for jumping to a wrong conclusion about my expiration issue which is 212, not 206. I misread the label about which issue we're on and was unnecessarily concerned. Big apology, that one's on me.

I haven't seen my subscription copy, nor did I see it at Hobbytown USA in Cincinnati when I was there over the weekend. At this point, I have to be honest - I've lost faith in the viability of this magazine. I'm also disappointed that it's been two years and when a new issue finally arrives, it's a contest issue. I guess time will tell, and I'll need that time to have my trust restored.

found mine at the Hobby Shop in Dayton, I liked most of the photos except for the ones with the "Velvet Elvis" dark backround as a lot of detail was lost. 

 

on the GSL table photos, who did the 3-D print of the 70 Dodge pick up? where can we get one???
