Fine Scale Miniature

Every November I look forward to the December MR for its advertisement of this years Fine Scale Miniature kit. No such luck this year. Does anyone know why?

If you look at http://www.horailroad.com/fsm/ your will see Mr. Selios' latest kit, "The Franklin Watchworks". I will guess that if it is not in the January MR as an advertisement he is trying to see if he can sell his kits without the tremendous expense of a full page in Model Railroader. With the fame of his work, I would think he could sell everything he produces with only the expense of a web hosting site. Let's see, $19.95 x 12 = $239.40. My one experience with buying advertising space in a magazine would leave me to believe that that price is at the very least 10 time less than what one full page, four color add would cost.

George has not always had his ads in MR. Sometimes they are in RMC, and this year happens to be one of those years. A think a realistic guess for a one time full color ad in MR is about $5000-$6000. I know George doesn't pay anything for his website, as it is hosted by a friend. It's all about saving money, and with the sahpe of this economy, I don't blame him!
