magazine accepts advertisements, but only from manufacturers, authorized direct importers and publishers for their own products. We do not accept any dealer or wholesaler advertising and no price discount ads of any kind. We feel this is the only way to expose modelers directly to what the manufacturers want to say about their own products, as a supplement to our new products features, test reports and other product reviews. We expect absolutely no change in our editorial p olicy - the manufacturers value our independent stand in reviewing their products almost as much as our readers. Please send all advertising inquiries to Depot Hobby Advertising, Attention Robert C. Bickley, Model Railroading magazine advertising manager, 8039 L a Mesa Blvd., La Mesa, CA 92041.

Modelers' tricks are just what the name implies, special techniques that make a particular aspect of model building easier, faster, less expensive, more realistic and (in many cases) a combination of all four! These tricks are applicable to ANY model that uses similar materials and that is why we label them as "modelers' tricks". If, for example, Goldberg's "Super Jet" cement works well to attach a p l as t i c smokestack to a roof, it (the 'trick' technique) will work equally as well to attach a plastic air horn to a plastic diesel. The "TRICK" logo will help you to spot helpful techniques even if the particular project does not interest you at the moment.
