Scale Auto Magazine Closure


Recommended Posts

Recently learnt that Scale Auto will be ceasing publication this year October 2020.

From what I understand the Auto related subjects will be absorbed into Fine Scale Modeler.

I believe that Model Car Builder is still going and is a subscription only magazine in the US and Canada.

What is happening or has happened to Model Cars Magazine is anybody's guess. Their forum is very active but is the magazine still going?

I used to subscribe to the old Military Modeler magazine. Sometime in the mid 90s, it merged with their sister publication Scale Modeler with Military Modeler as a smaller subtitle.

That continued for a short time until the subtitle went away and it just became Scale Modeler for a while. Then the balance of my subscription was filled with some sort of hot rod magazine.

The Scale Auto Magazine Forum Website has now closed along with the magazine curtailment.

No one forced them. They just as easily could have settled here. That forum is rather sleepy, they could take over the auto forum in a short while and the general modeling forum just as quick. The only forum at FSM that has decent movement is the armor forum, and even that is slow compared to forums that specialize in armor modeling.

The auto side seems to be picking up speed now. Aircraft section is all but dead for all practical purposes. Hope things are going alright with you Rob in your "at home" deal as of late.

Model Cars Magazine has seen itself back into print again under the editorship of Larry Greenberg. Hopefully it will get itself back on track again now that Scale Auto has ceased publication.
