Greetings,

     Thanks for your interest in my project of digitizing and preserving MODEL BUILDER magazine on DVD - I have over 600 hours in scanning and assembling the 35,000 plus pages back into complete issues - It's definitely a labor of love -

     Every page of each issue of MODEL BUILDER is scanned at 300 dpi, the same resolution used for preparing magazines for printing, and converted into PDF files that can be read and printed out using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software - We have a license from Adobe to distribute this software and it is included on the DVDs for those who don't already have it installed on their computers -

     Also included is a spreadsheet (readable with Microsoft Excel) that is an index of plans and the issue in which they were published - Recently added is a PDF version of the same index in case you can't read an Excel file - With either of these files you can find a given plan and its article quickly and easily -

     Price for the complete set of 295 issues on two DVDs is $75 US postage paid worldwide - I see that the magazines are selling for between $2 to $5 or more per issue on eBay (plus shipping) - $75 for 295 issues is about 25 cents per issue - Volume 1, Number 1 actually sells for between $50 and $200 if you can find a copy - Now you can have your own -

     Send money via Paypal (preferred) to  cardinal.eng@grics.net   - You can use your credit card through Paypal - This is particularly good for international orders -

     Or a check or money order drawn on a US bank made out and mailed to -

     Again, Thanks for your interest and "Keep 'em Flying"
