I just bought the June 2007 RMC and I must say it's very good.
Scratchbuilder's Corner is shaping up into a wonderful series, and I love the chatty tone. It's fun to read and full of good info, like an E. L. Moore article. Better yet, there were two other construction articles, and both very useful! I love to see the sort of 'technique' article that Carl Traub used to write; just as much, I enjoyed the station-building article simply because it was a good, normal construction writeup, and had some unique ideas in it...bread and butter.
I don't want to put down the rest of the magazine, by any means...it was fine, but having three good model-building articles in one issue was fantastic! Put in an article by the Layout Doctor and a few semi-random scale drawings scattered around the pages, and this issue would have had all the content-heaviness of a mid-60s RMC, but with better pictures.
A nice bonus was Hal's foreword and the inside article on early scale models. Instead of just an offhanded word about how "we had nothing in those days", actual discussion of what just did exist! Astonishing...history and not legends; that's another thing this hobby needs. Why be scairt of the banshee when the truth is that your great-granduncle heard a screech owl?
Buy it, folks. If you've got friends in model railroading, buy one for each of 'em. It was that good.
