It was feature article for many, many years. Probably starting as far back as the 1940's with some of his earlier work, but I'm not sure of that. It was very popular in the 60's and 70's and even though he passed away in 1973, his work continued to show up for quite a while afterward.I remember John Allen's Gorre & Daphetid , I thought it was a feature article in the 60's . My father had that magazine and we always looked at it.
I prefer the older issues, much more "how to" articles on modeling, detailing and not just a glossing "showing off" that we get these days. The magazine was thicker and had more substance in those pre internet days. Guys showing how to take a Rail Power Products shell and detail it to the point of rivaling brass and a fraction of the cost. If I pay $100 or more for a caboose, it better be brass. Mike the Aspie
