And with all due respect, and I like FSM, the November isssue for me was blah. If it was a benchmark for whether or not I subscribed, it would be no. Cant make everyone happy all the time lol.

I'm with Midnight. For my tastes the last several issues have been at best mediorcre. I've been finding myself reading fewer and fewer articles. That also goes for the build reviews, a section I used to enjoy the most.

I always enjoyed FSM and I subscribed since the early 80's but with the huge progress of the internet,there is so much info available,I found there was no need to continue,its all basically old news.

I'm with Philo.  I thought the seaplane and conning tower articles were really good.  Of course, I am a seaplane nut.  But still it had great photos and good writing.  I'm not a fan of sub models but I do a lot of ships waterline and got some good ideas to try.

For me the last few issues have been "meh" at best. I hope they add more builds and page count, but I'm not holding my breath. If this is what is going to be like I won't be renewing. But, I don't think this mag will last till the end of my current sub anyway. I predcit it will be gone in less than an a year.

Well my opinion has not me at least it is an outstanding issue.The Oct issue was kind of lack luster  .Perhaps I was dazzled by the Cauldron but I look at an issue from 5 or 10 years ago and they had over 20 more pages of content!
