At the risk of being accused of self-promotion, I thought other modellers may be interested to see that the June issue of Marine Modelling International has a full colour, whole cover photo of a card model!
The editor asked for a review copy of the model I published of the SS Shieldhall, a preserved steamship based in Southampton, and got modeller Mike Tunnicliffe to build it up for a review article in the magazine. Mike has done a fabulous job and this is confirmed by the fact thay put a photo of it on the front cover.
So there is a card model on the front of the second-largest-circulation marine modelling magazine in the UK and a it's model build that is a real advert for the hobby.
The editor and I have talked about other possible ways to promote card models and are following up a couple. Watch this space.
