This month we welcome a couple changes at Internet Modeler. First off is the new Reference Section. This will be a section for such things as scale drawings or historical references. While it's small now, expect this area to grow in the future. And while we are putting back issues onto CD-ROM, the Reference Section will always be there. So stop on by and see what we have. If there's something you think we should have in that section, please let me know.
I would now like to welcome three new advertisers this month. GP Hobby out of Poland, Hobbyshop.cz out of the Czech Republic and Rosemont Hobby Shop out of the United States all have come on board with us. Each has their strong points and I urge everyone to visit their sites and see what they have that interests you. We wouldn't be able to provide such a quality magazine each and every month without the support of our advertisers, so please let them know that you saw their ad on our pages.
For the future, it looks like it will be a busy year. This month's Sprue Bits includes an abbreviated release list from several manufacturers (and I'm sure we'll hear even more once the Nuremburg show is over) and there's something for everyone. New releases and re-releases both should keep all of us modelers quite happy and our bank accounts quite empty. As for Internet Modeler, we've got some interesting projects lined up for the next few months, including an interesting series of articles covering the potential move of the Champlain warbird collection to the Seattle Museum of Flight. Lots of interesting conversions in that project that you might not realize right off, so keep your eyes out for that.
So, without further adieu, sit back and enjoy the February 2002 issue of Internet Modeler!
