I know nothing of any of this. I am just a regular buyer of SAM, who happens to enjoy this magazine immensley, and I make no apology for that. My sole intent was to offer some assitance to a fellow AMI member and modeller, and nothing more. As far as holding the SAM article up as something superior to locally available aviation literature, (where the hell did that come from!!!), I make no such claim. You obviously have unresolved issues with the owners and publishers of SAM, and for that you have my sympathy and understanding, however I have NO stake in this and resent any inference to the contrary. Maybe you need to pull back a little here Gary.
