No surprise. I was monitored like forever then I told them to ban me. The second time around, I was banned without explanation.

Me neither. Nor will I buy their mag from a store. FSM got their last dollar out of me several years back. If it wasn’t for a few old friends there, I’d be gone as well.

I've been reading this very interesting thread. I enjoyed everyone's contributions. I have a FSM story too. Several years ago, I was insulted by a guy there. After his insult, he said if I needed more info, just PM him. It made me mad and as I had gotten quite tired of this person's behavior, I replied to him, in the thread, "f*ck you". Yeah. Good ol' Texas directness. :lol: Then I followed that up with the PM he wanted and it made my in thread comment seem tame by comparison. Then I reported his insults. :wink:

Well, he then posted my PM in the thread. Yeah. Cute of him. We were both banned I believe (I know I was!). Fast forward a few years and I wanted to get some information from my PM folder. I sent Aaron Skinner an email, asking if I could be allowed in long enough to do that, without posting anything in forum. He replied that if I told him what I wanted he would get it. No, I didn't like that. All this time though, I was constantly getting emails asking me to subscribe to their rag again. Well, again I emailed Skinner. This time I offered him a deal; if he would unban me, I would consider renewing my subscription to his magazine. I never received an answer. :grin:

Oh well. Life has gone on for ol' GB and as for FSM? Who needs that? :lol:

So THAT is why I hadn’t seen you there in awhile… :hmm:

I have a feeling that FSM won’t be around for that much longer. At least as a magazine. And once that folds, the website will be gone shortly after.

Yeah, they shunned me. :lol: I had a subscription to FSM for many years and they were very helpful when I was just getting started back into model building. It was in the first FSM magazine that I saw my first just amazing model plane. The issue was January 1989. It was Bob Steinbrun's YP-80A, one of the four planes that went to Europe just before the war ended, based on the Monogram F-80 1/48 it. It blew me away and I realized then what fine scale modeling meant.

But after several years, maybe 10 or more, I began to see that so much of each issue was sort of recycled info. Probably still helpful to some but not much was relevant to my needs and then along came the internet and it seemed like I didn't need the magazine that much anymore. I still have them all, in boxes under my corner area and I can't remember when I needed something bad enough to dig through them. And, my wife gifted me their CD-ROM compiling every issue, further rendering the paper copies redundant.

Oh, by the way, here are a few pics of that inspiring model just to show how nice it was. I believe a member at iModeler now owns that model and he kindly sent the pics to me.

He did some extensive work like moving the cockpit back a scale 9" to replicate the YP-80. It all seemed almost like "magic" to this novice modeler and it really began the journey I'm still on today. :grin:
