I've been published in FineScale Modeler magazine!
« on: Mon Dec, 11, 2017, 12:15:AM »
I wasn't aware of this until my friend in Canada congratulated me. I was never notified that I was going to be published.

The new issue of Finescale Modeler features my article on the cover!

"Japan: New Item Report"
That's me! I'll have to order one for myself. The editor, Aaron Skinner didn't tell me it was going to be published. I just sent him an email to thank him. I offered to cover the All-Japan Model Hobby Show at the end of September and donate pictures. I said they needn't pay me, and did it as just a volunteer submission.

The purchasing page lists various articles, but mine isn't listed. It's for sure in the magazine though.

I just purchased it, along with Aaron's book about SF modeling that has an X-Wing and the Enterprise on the cover. It'll take me a few weeks for them to arrive from Kalmbach Publishing. NEAT!

Nah, no payment. I volunteered to cover the event pro-bono. Maybe if I attend the Shizuoka Hobby Show next year, I might ask for their standard fee.

My friend sent me a scan of the page of my article. It looks like the editor selected mostly aircraft pictures and embellished a bit with giving some history on some of the more unique subjects, such as the Taiwanese jet fighter. It calls me "FSM's special correspondent." Well I'm special! (special!) So special! (special!) I gotta have some of your attention. Give it to me!
