Was on the Spotlight board and a member said his new issue came in the mail today. Said of a follow-up on the 53 Hudson inside. He went to read it and there was NO such reading inside the issue. What happened? He wasn't too happy.

I believe that it has already been explained here in another post but I will review. Harry stated that the Hudson article was bumped at the last minute in light of the Ihobby show review and that the cover of this issue was suuposed to have been changed but the cover change missed the print deadline. So, the Hudson piece will appear in the next issue.

For me, I don't need more Hudson coverage. Alex's part II of the Ferrari 275 GTB build is worth the price of admission if there were nothing else inside. But man, that Model T article - thorough, but you need to go online to see the scope of his achievement.

One note: I might add that Andy Smith's online tutorial on assembling Model Factory Hiro photoetched wire wheels fills a gap that has been missing and needed for a very long time. I agree with MikeMc on recommending this for a magazine feature. I think this could be extended to a whole series on the best ways to assemble common photoetched aftermarket parts such as windshield wipers and hinges.

I think an article covering the basics of working with PE parts would be great.

So how about one of you people stepping up and writing one? ;)

If you're up for it, let me know and I can fill you in on exactly what I would need from you.

It was a pleasant surprise to see Hank Borger on the cover. :)
