What a lovely idea. I might be putting my name out there a little late, but I would jump at the opportunity to contribute.

Yeah, I don't think that was a spelling mistake. In my opinion a magazine that I'm going to pay for has to be good in quality. I don't want pages full of dull topics. If you're going to get a team of people who have no idea what they're doing and have never made a magazine before it will, in my opinion, end up looking un-professional. Also you have to remember that it will be worldwide and we would have to pay a large subscription fee because of the shipping itself.

It was ironic because someone wrote 'When shall we right articles' instead of the word 'write'. Huge fail before we've even started. Haha

Not sure if there will be a price for this magazine yet. It may be given away free. Would love to do worldwide shipping but it may just be 'download only' for now.

I certainly will be very picky on what articles go in and avoid articles submitted with badly written english grammar. This WILL indeed be a professional publication. Aiming for a launch early 2013 (hopefully January)

More news soon

Good to hear, looking forward to it. I wouldn't mind paying for a subscription if it was good and interesting. I'd also like to see some variety in the articles instead of the constant model review, how to make an airport, etc.

That's exactly what is going inside the magazine - Model Airports, Custom Making, Custom pics, A look back at some older models and comparisons, competitions to win models, retailer reviews and deals. Gemini Jets weren't too keen on too many reviews either so I am taking that into consideration

First test issue is looking likely to be FREE but after that I will evaluate subscriptions etc. It's hard to gauge how it will go at this stage.

Re: A new model airliner magazine.....

I can see something good coming here. I have seen the website and I couldn't believe that Nathan had made it. He is clearly determined to make this a success and if the effort is put in, it will be!

I will wait for him to post links to share with everyone, but it's looking very hopeful so far!

Just curious why Gemini didn't want product reviews. Sure as with any review there is likely to be criticism, but it could help them figure out what to improve literally for free.
Also, I agree with having a free PDF at first, but I would be most interested in a print version in the long run, which I know you're carefully considering, just wanted to add my two cents.
Thanks.

They still want reviews - just well constructed ones that benefit the company. Goes without saying though I suppose. I highly doubt anyone will be nasty towards the releases.

Yes, downloaded version will be the first 'test' edition then it will hopefully go to print if the feedback and interest is good.
