There is no "wrong" way to build a model if you`re having fun.
Now go, build a showrod model, show your work with pride and inspire others!

I think the writing has been on the wall for some time where Scale Auto is concerned (and I never really forgave them for dropping the word "Enthusiast" from the title!). Printed magazine publication is not a happy place to be these days - between people turning to the web for instant information and less folks getting involved with niche hobbies (and that's modelling), titles like Scale Auto face a pretty bleak future.
Scale Auto was my first taste of a modelling website especially cars. The notice I received about a week ago about the magazine finishing was a shock as I have a subscription for it until December 2021. They tell me that it will be included in the
Finescale Magazine but I'm not a military builder, tanks or planes. I'll have to see how it turnes out.
Since last weekend I haven't been able to sign in to either Scale Auto or the Finescale websites. They answer by email saying that they had a system upgrade last weekend and I should sort out my 'Caches and Cookies' to get back in.
When I contacted them again I asked how I was to do that as I'm not IT/PC savvy they haven't answered!
Is the Scale Auto website now out of action for ever?
PLUS I've just ordered and paid for their Contest Cars 2020 edition! I hope I get it!
