2015 marks the start of a new format for MAR Online. MAR 283 is now available to read and you will see that it is smaller than usual. This is because we have now started a new format. At the start of every quarter we will publish an editorial and articles on hand gradually adding articles as we go through the quarter.
As ever we will be happy to receive any articles or news you would like to see us cover.
Please let us know what you think of the new format.
The third rolling quarter in the new format. As ever articles will be updated or added during the quarter. As ever Hans-Gerg Schmitt's News from the Continent covers lots of 1:87 models. The trend for ostalgia continues whilst the general number of new mouldings seems to be at a fairly low level.
After major hosting issues MAR Online now has a new home at www.maronline.org.uk. I will try to include more 1:87 next year. I have just taken advantage of the sell off of the lovely Ricko oldtimers at pocket money prices and am really impressed by their quality. I am not advertising the following retailers but they are on sale there. Europe try modelcarworld and in US American-Excellence. I would not be surprised if they feature in an article soon.
Many thanks for the praise. Hans-Georg Schmitt is our Continental editor and collector of information from 1:87 suppliers. BTW has anyone built any of the shape ways 3D printed cars and fancies sending some pictures and comments on making them up it would make a great article - email me at maronline editor at gmail.com. Seasons greetings from the team at MAR Online
