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?
