my name is Alexander Leonov, I am editor-in-chief Toy Gear Magazine.
Our magazine about auto-scale modeling (bilingual - Russian and English).
In heading "From Abroad" we publish scale-models from professionals modellers not from Russia, in last magazine was Juan Layos (Madrid, Spain) with Alfa Romeo Tipo 33/3.
We need one of these models for a following issue of the magazine (Ford Mustang Mach 1 (1971), Lotus Esprit S1, BMW Z8 or Aston Martin DB5).
We need photos of the model, a photos of WIP and article about construction.
There can be someone from you have this models or will want to build for magazine.
I wait for your offers.

Best regards, Alexander Leonov

I can vouch for these guys! Top quality issue and really nice print work. The mag is also much thicker than you would expect from any model car magazine, with lots of good pix and reference for 1:1 cars as well.

Anybody has no desire to help us with model building?
I guess people would like to help you. But you ask for some very specific models, which I don't have. And it takes a LONG time to build a model to a magazine standard.

03-31-2012, 02:24 PM
We can buy these models (Lotus, BMW or Aston Martin) for the author and we give on model construction term till the end of June 2012.
May be you have already ready models from this list?

Received the magazine in fine style some weeks ago. Very professional layout. But I must admit I am disappointed. Gold article (seen from my point of view) is an excellent build of the MFH 1/24 Tipo 33/3. But the pictures are a disaster:frown:. So hopeless small that nothing can be seen and therefore useless:banghead:. What I want is BIG – repeat BIG - pictures where all the details can be seen. Remember: One good picture says more than 1000 words. Problem is the text is done in both English and Russian, which takes up a lot of space. So the “price” is to spoil the pictures:uhoh:. Instead of a lot of text give me a lot of BIG pictures:licka:.

04-02-2012, 05:44 AM
Allan: We will try to be corrected in the following number, we will print more BIG photos.
Lesley: I will send the Toy Gear magazine today, thanks for purchase.

I have received the magazine today. I have not been to read it(the english part), but it looks great. Thanks for the excellent service.

Best regards,
