The question has come up a few times recently: "Why doesn't someone write an article for FineScale Modeler about card models?" Well, I just sent a query to FSM for an article on my Merlin engine model (http://sakrisonwings.blogspot.com/2008/09/i-built-alin-osariks-merlin-engine-in.html) and on cardmodeling in general. I'm a professional writer, with bylines in EAA's Sport Aviation and other aviation magazines. We'll see if they bite. Cheers, --David P.S.: For those of you who might not know, a "query" is not a little guy with a handbag; it's a proposal sent to an editor for a possible article.
