Absolutely, when Ray Rimmell had Scale Models it was terrific. I missed Airfix magazine
to a large extent, well I subscribed later, but then it was past it's prime.
I did get both Chris Ellis's books, and thought they were pretty good, but Chris Ellis
was a pretty awful modeler. I once met Allan Hall at my first IPMS-UK competition 
at Stoneleigh, he was ever so nice.
