I've noticed there's a war boiling in the letters to the editor at
FINE SCALE MODELER. Some people want the magazine to start running
articles on giant robot model kits, (Gundam, anyone?) while others
are steadfastly against it. The naysayers say Giant robots will taint
the integrity of the magazine, and that Scale modeling is about
replicating objects that are (or have been) real in miniature form.
Maybe these people have forgotten that this same magazine has run
many articles on Star Trek, and Star Wars models previously. Admitted
it would be a big jump from super detailing F-18E landing gear bays
to Wing Gundam but hey, someone should take these new modellers under
their wing. The vote is said to be running 50/50.

This just goes to show how territorial and resistant to change human
beings are. Even outside the Wing vs. U.C. debate ^_^
