Where is the old Scale Auto content?
Posted by RyanR0101 on Friday, October 23, 2020 12:27 PM

So they shut down the Scale Auto webpage and forums, saying that it was going to move to FSM.  Where's all the content?  I can't find a thing.

I highly doubt they meant they were moving the entire forum. They meant the magazine content would be incorporated into FSM the magazine.

This is probably true, but given that the backend database is very likely the same (probably even the same database, with different schemas; not even just the same software!) - incorporating the SA(e) forums into the FSM forums wouldn’t have been overly complicated.  Perhaps archived into a "read only" format; given that some people were subscribed to both services already.   I've subscribed to both FSM and SA(e) for a very long time.  I tend to spend a few months/years focused on WWII aircraft and then a few months/years focused on a variety of automobile subjects.  To see SA fold (and "just like that") has been disappointing.  Yeah, yeah, I know... digital age, cost savings, blah, blah, blah.   

Granted, I (like many others) have found skills used for military subjects and skills used for civilian subjects to be cross-compatible.  ie - weathering a chassis, etc. :) 

Anywho ... thanks for the welcome here.  I look forward to seeing folks' work.   Model on ....
