Just how thin the magazine (Model Aviation , of course) has been lately ?

Last month's was thin but I think this newest (October 2018) is even thinner .......

There's been so much attention drawn to them that there's not too much they can put in there without being ridiculed one way or another. Or did you mean you wanted more content actually related to the building and flying of model aircraft?

I did a quick comparison to a mag from a little over a year ago. Itís thinner because they donít have as many paid advertisers.

there's this new thing called the "internet" that has chipped away at the size of a lot of the hobby and sport magazines and just about obliterated the brick and mortar hobby shops, all over the world !.
