The front cover of this issue of MRJ has now been landing on the doormats of subscribers and the shelves of newsagents for around a week now.
I'm feeling very quietly pleased with it, as I am the Guest Editor :-)
I was asked to put a copy together around six months ago, and had a very enjoyable time deciding what to include, and then discussing the articles with the various authors. There was a certain thrill as the material started to arrive, and I could start putting together the issue.
I hope that the final result is a magazine that inspires with the quality of the modelling within it, yet shows that it is all very practical and achievable by any modeller that has a degree of patience and care. I won't use the phrases "Average Modeller" or "Achievable Excellence" as I believe that they are already taken elsewhere!
Finally, my deep thanks to all of those friends that accepted my invitation to contribute to MRJ 225. There was only one article that missed the copy deadline that I set, and that was the one that I wrote myself. Typical!
