This might be the case with Windsock, which still is a niche
publication and almost a one-man operation. However, emphasis on
commercial intrusion on the articles has led the modelling press to
hell, like the case of Fine Scale Modeller, once a pretty nice
modelling magazine and nowadays something unreadable, inundated of
advertisements and uncapable of making a decent critique of any
product (everything must be GREAT!) and no skills involved, when an
article on making a better model consist just on buying a new kit or
adding hundreds of $$$$$$$$ in resin aftermarket detail sets,
photoetched sets, new decals, etc. etc.

Hell, I'd pay for that too.

Now you'll say to us you get Playboy for reading the articles. And why
you keep buying Private and Hustler too?
