Chuck Most Posted November 5, 2013 Share Posted November 5, 2013 Hot Rod magazine was into car modeling in the mid to late '80s. Revell had a series of kits with the Hot Rod logo; there were full-size and scale Hot Rod decals in each kit and the magazine actually ran a photo contest in... late 1987, if I remember correctly. I have displayed models as a club member at 1:1 car shows. Some of those in attendance were knowledgeable of our hobby, others had no qualms about picking up a built model and inquiring about the price. "Please do not touch" signs are a necessity at these events. Indeed they did. I think you're right about that contest being in late '87, I think I have that issue floating around here someplace or another. Now that I think of it, today some of the "Hole in the wall" type 1:1 mags cover models sporadically, and Steve Magnante covers them in Hot Rod Deluxe. Yeah, Do Not Touch signs are pretty much useless. In my work we constantly put up "Out of Order" and "Do Not Enter" signs- think that stops anybody? (Do I really have to tell you the answer?)
