Last week while I was visiting Munich, I bought a german model magazine, "modell-fan".
It's the official magazin of the German Association of Plastic Model DPMV, with a
monthly average circulation of 12.000 copies, since 1974.
I am buying this magazine since my first visit to Germany 1985.
News about current model kits, books, every possible model tools are to find in every magazine.
Detailed technology of model building, materials, tools and colors are handled.
In addition, there are step-by-step instructions, construction reports with convertions, book reviews and overviews of resellers.
On September 2009 the earlier publishing house "Bremer Carl Ed. Schünemann Verlag" cancelled his supportship, so the end of the magazine was announced.
Shortly thereafter Münchner GeraMond publishing house took over the magazine.
This new publishing house has the necessary know-how for expanding the magazine, because they have another magazines like "BAHN EXTRA, LOK MAGAZIN, STRASSENBAHN MAGAZIN, FLUGZEUG CLASSIC, AUTO CLASSIC" in their portfolio.
