I just got the new issue in the mail, first one I've seen. I have to say that I am mighty impressed. The magazine is done up very nicely on heavy glossy stock and the printing quality is good (I was a printer and print shop supervisor in a former life for a direct mail company, so I'm picky about this stuff). All in all, this is a publication that can be handed down and looks like it will last in the long run.  

Props to the folks at Slot Cars Magazine!

Saw the first 2 issues on the counter at Eddie's yesterday, and though I only had a chance to skim through them, I gotta say I was impressed.  Well done in both form and content, I was kinda surprised to see Jairus as Editor.  Woulda thought for sure he'd be the Art Director, but regardless, the whole endeavor was top notch.  Congratulations!  Gives me hope for the future of the hobby.  I'm gonna go look for them at my neighborhood track.

That's 'cause I'm the only one in that family who knows slots. The rest are just model car guys.
Art director is Harry P. and he's plenty good at what he does.

Gregg Hutchings is learning about slots and seems to like them enough to start the mag. But he needed someone who understood the hobby in broad strokes and not just racing, or history, or vintage collector, or ...

 

But you get the idea.
I said I would give him a year.  After that.... maybe you want a shot at editing a mag Darryl?
My attention span is short.
