  1. Hi FF, I'm always keen to find out in what way you think some of the builds have decreased quality wise. If you'd prefer to PM me thats fine, and please do be honest. The best feedback is the stuff we can act on to make the magazine even better. Cheers Jonners Assistant Editor SAM
  2. Hi Chaps, yes that's correct @treker_ed. We were hacked and then locked out of our admin, so had to start afresh with a new page, named 'SAM - Scale Aircraft Modelling'. Just as clarification: Guideline Publications Ltd are the-owners and publishers of Scale Aircraft Modelling, which has no links to Model Airplane Monthly (MA) and Scale Aviation Modeller International (SAMI). (I do appreciate it can get confusing!) Model Airplane International is published and owned by Doolittle Media Ltd, who also own and publish Tamiya Model Magazine International in the UK.

  3. Hi Greg, yes in a year of many "interesting' things, it is not huge. I'm very happy you like the way SAM is going too. We do aim to get the right balance. cheers Jonners
  4. HI Jon - I'd love to get you to contribute, and I can't see your blog being an issue. Our contributors regularly put pics up on Facebook of what they are doing, so a social media output is fine. It is 'your' blog after all. I think what the author meant was that he looked for info on building the model, although one could always just conclude that research does not always bring forth the correct results either! ( I'm trying to be light hearted here - we've all sworn blind we researched things, yet they were still wrong). I'll drop you a PM. Cheers Jon
  5. Hi everyone, Happy Christmas! This is an unusual situation, not unique, but rare. There is no informal anti-toe-treading mechanism. Alas, unlike OPEC we are not a cartel and sadly lack their wealth too!! At Scale Aircraft Modelling, we rely on the honesty of the contributor and do remind them that submissions to any magazine or publisher are done on the clear understanding that the same piece has not been submitted to another publisher. The AH-64 was published in SAM because our Aircraft in Profile writer was hospitalised with COVID, so we needed to include some extra articles. It
  6. Seasons greetings all, I guess I should display the cast list to my 2020 Blockbuster 'Modelling with a Mask' Varied scales this year, as articles dictated what I was given mostly, but they were all fun, and kept me safe. Most have been in SAM so apologies for the repeats ( but that's what you get at Christmas!) Aunty A's lovely 1/72 Naval Brick started the year. Decals are from the old Modeldecals sheet. Eduard 1/48 Mirage IIICJ, a test for some new NMF paints, but Mirages have to be silver, don't they? HK Models 1/48 B-17G occupied a lot of time - decals came f
  7. Tony's private Air Force gains another Big Wing! Wow, dud, as ever- just scrumptious modelling of subjects that are well picked and as interesting as always. Dead good, are kid. Jonners
  8. Hi Rich - thanks for replying. That would be Colin I assume. cheers Jonners
  9. Hi all, just wondering if there are any truck or even tractor modellers here? Guideline have two new magazines in the fold and we are looking for contributors. Think me as a short, slightly - OK rather chubby, recruiting Sergeant! cheers Jonners
  10. Hi guys, that would sound to be likely explanation- ie the mistaking of SAM for SAMI. Just to stress that SAM - Scale Aircraft Modelling - has no connection with SAMI, but that doesn't stop me from hoping your missing SAMIs turn up so you can all have something else to peruse while in the "littlest room" Don't forget - if you want to write for us, then just drop me a line. We are always on the lookout for new victims writers, and have plenty of advice and help to get you started too. If I can do it, then you can. Right, I'm off to fiddle with me F-15 Have a great modelling wee
  11. Hi again, I haven't heard back from you about this yet. Have you received your copy? We'v had no problems from the printers/ distributors, so it would be good to know who told you that. They all went out at least 3, now nearly 4 weeks ago. If you prefer- please PM me with your details and we can double check to ensure there have been no slip ups. cheers Jonners
  12. No worries Chris- at leats you know its suitably quarantined now! I hope you enjoy the issue. Cheers and thanks for telling us too. Jonners
  13. Hi Chris, can I ask which issue it is you are waiting for? The October one - with the Eduard Spit 1 on the cover? Hi Ranners, can I ask where you are located in the UK please? Cheers Jonners
  14. I don't think a lot of Mustangs constitutes a problem! It shows a person of taste and style Glad you liked the article, the Eduard kit is lovely but not plain sailing, although it does give the modeller a really top class looking P-51. P-51s are second only to Spits in my collection, although I do lack Allison engined ones, something I intend to rectify. cheers! Jonners
  15. Thank you! It's great to have praise and I enjoyed that build too. It's probably a good idea to email the editor with things you like as it does help us set the tone, and it stops me reporting back that 'they like my models" too!! Many thanks Jonners
