We feel this is the only way to expose model ers directly to what the manufacturers want to say about their own products, as a supplement to our new products features, test reports and other prod uct reviews. We expect absolutely no change in our editorial policy - the manufacturers value our independent stand in reviewing their products almost as much as our readers.

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 fourl These tricks are applicable to ANY model that uses similar materials and that is why we label them as "modelers' tricks". If, lor example, Goldberg's "Super Jet" cement works well to attach a plastic 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.
ON THE COVER: Bob Vensel and Paul Fulks are two "N"thusiasts whose
friendship has resulted in "Cantington Ntrak. " For more on their endeavor, turn to page 41. Paul Fulks photo
