We had an interesting phone conversation just a few days ago. it came under the I think your magazine is great but . . category. Actually our reader was quite satisfied with MB and in the but area of his comments he felt we were coming closest to what he wanted to see.
The readers concern was for the beginner in modeling (Note That is beginner not Junior. There is no age limit on beginners in modeling). He felt and its probably so that the guy whos just getting started buys a magazine primarily to find out how to build models. He couldnt care less about news of what happens at contests and who won what trophy or to read in a construction article that the building of this model is straightforward He really wants to know how you stick stringer A to former B how you shape the nose in typical fashion from a couple of balsa blocks and hollow to 18 inch thick and so on into the night.
We told our caller that it would be physically and practically impossible to write every construction article for the beginner. It would be like the math professor in college starting every lecture in calculus by reviewing the multiplication table. And though we are trying to have a higher percentage of how-to in our articles the very basic fundamentals of modeling would almost have to be re pealed monthly in order to help all the new modelers who are continually joining our hobby.
One answer to this problem is a book of basics that would be continually available. The best example of such a source of information in our estimation is a book written and illustrated by Harper & Row. The title is Beginners Guide to Building and Flying Model Airplanes and the current price is 6.95 (5.00 through AMA). For what its worth Bob reports that the book is the one most stolen from the Boston Library. Thats class
Bob is a long-time modeler a painter and illustrator and writer. His experience in writing books for young readers
