We've just received our office copies, hot off the press, and it looks really, really good. Issue 2 of a relaunch is always the hardest to produce. You spend many months working on Issue 1, and then you have the usual month to put together Issue 2. However, the opinion around the office is that BRM Dec is the best yet. We hope you all agree.

It's what happens when you set a trend; others follow. ;)

 

Phil's next bookazine's got something to do with toilets.

Oh dear - I'm just going to have to go into Smiffs blindfolded - I still don't like the rebrand - tear off the front cover and buy the second issue in a row!

 

The content looks too good to miss inside this issue.

 

... which is what it is all about I guess.

Still in two minds about BRM vs MR vs MRJ

Ordered MRJ 225 for delivery. And I'm in the UK beginning of next month, so if I can get to a WHS I may be able to pick up the other two for a comparison.

Downloaded the latest issue yesterday evening and very impressed, especially the Diesels in the Ducy article. Great photos Andy.

Very different animals IMHO.  I have MRJ on subscription, but browse my local shops for any others. BRM, MR, even RM, have upped their game over the past year or so, but I still tend to buy only those which have articles of interest to me in them.   If you want lots of ads and reviews then I guess any one of three are better for you.   I like MRJ for its modelling inspiration, even if it appears a little old fashioned.

... which may not necessarily be a bad thing.

Picked up a copy in Tescos earlier today. There is certainly a lot of very nice pictures but it does seem like that there is less actual reading matter than the old BRM (which for me was renowned for a good quality lengthy read).

Hi all,

 

The December issue of BRM goes on-sale tomorrow and all copies come with a FREE 32-page magazine: The BRM Guide to Model Buildings. Unfortunately this issue is bagged by necessity with the supplement, but to help give you a feel for what's inside we have a preview video for you to watch: http://bit.ly/1boIJmE.

 

Here's a picture of what to look out for on newsstand.

I hope you enjoy the magazine.

There is some good stuff in this issue.  Not that I wish to be seen as crawling but Andy's pics really bring out the best of DitD and there is plenty of best to bring out.  It's good to see Tony Wright back on form as he describes his encounters with the C12 and P2.  Other interesting features are, of course, available.

 

On the downside, I wasn't too keen on being referred to a website to see how Howard Smith decorated his Smallbrook brake van, particularly as it was not this one.

Nice to see Damian's DITD get a good airing... you know the odd Deltic has been seen down that way ... fleetingly ;-)
