FineScale Modeler Ceasing Publication?
Posted by Space Ranger on Tuesday, September 8, 2020 5:49 PM

There's an ugly rumor to that effect.

Airfix Modelling Club page on Facebook.

Scale Auto is ceasing publication, but Kalmbach had already announced that.

Given that Scale Auto was just axed and all those subscriptions converted to FSM, I don't think the Kalmbach suits would then shut down FSM 3 months later.  Sounds like fake news to me...

 

Unless we will all be conterted to Model Railroader subscriptions now!

I guess that only Aaron can correctly answer this question.

I was hoping someone from Kalmbach would respond.

Johnny I hope you're wrong, its one of the only modelling mags I get. However, the modern world has never known circumstances like this so I guess anything is possible.

This is silly. Why don't you (SRanger) private message the editors and ask them?

Otherwise this is pretty irresponsible.

Irresponsible? I never claimed they were ceasing publication, just stated that there is a big rumor to that effect. I don't like the spreading of unfounded rumors better than you do. What better place to bring it up and get a definitive answer than on their own forum? Chill out.

Let us know what they say. It seems like a courtesy, just saying.

Hi Space Ranger,

 

There's absolutely no truth to the rumor. And as such, I'm going to lock this thread.

Thanks,

Tim
