Make that 4¢. I was just thinking so myself, earlier today. Somehow
all that colour art makes it hard to see individual items. Sadly, the
art, at that size, doesn't carry well.
Pegasus kits can be, um, challenging. I've started a few and finished
one. I hope to get the others finished eventually. Spare parts can be
considered a necessary help when building a Pegasus kit.
Whilst doing up the HA Buchon I found a replacement Bf 109 canopy to be
better than what came in the kit. I still have an Albacore and a Ryan
FR-1 undone. I did have a Fulmar but passed it on when the Vista kit
came out. I wish Vista had hung in there long enough to get their
Albacore to market. IOW, if it's the only way you'll get one of those
Type XA Wonderbirds, go with Pegasus.

They don't have a subscription section on the order form any more, that
I could find.
I don't find the new format to be very searchable - most of the mfr.
names are just type instead of being the logo, scales are a little
mixed together, etc. My theory about them using photos instead of the
old line drawings is that nobody has to do the art - they can just scan
the stuff in from boxart or wherever.
I've never been a flyer shopper anyway... Mine does come quick, though.
