I am pleased to announce that the SubCommittee has a new Managing Editor.
Over the past several months there has been a lot of back-and-forth discussion between Myles Yancey and myself about what it would take for me to resume the position of Managing Editor on a permanent basis. As many of you know, this is not a position that I wanted to resume for a number of reasons.
To be honest, this was a difficult decision on my part. Eventually I determined that the principle thing needed was to ensure the continuing health of the SCR by having more regular columnists covering more than just R/C modeling. There are two reasons for this. First, I wanted to see us get back to having more variety in what is covered...a broader coverage of submarine-related topics if you will.
Second, I wanted to find a way to ensure that a majority of pages in each issue are filled on a regular basis thereby minimizing the effort needed on my part to scare up articles, which over the past several years has been the biggest issue facing the Managing Editors.
I placed my request on the table and waited to see if Myles could make good on it. And he did. So here I am…again!
I am very pleased to announce that starting with this issue; the following new and existing columnists will be regularly seen in the SCR:
• Basic Molding & Lighting by Aimee Eng
• The Engineering Deck by Matt Thor
• The Fox Schedule by Andy Lawrence
• How it Works by Skip Asay
• Smoke on the Horizon by Paul Crozier
• Static on the Line by Tom Dougherty
• SubBooks by Jeff Porteous
• The Submarine Historian by Tim Smalley
• Submarine Model Building by Steve Neill
We are always interested in adding more submarine-related columns. If you have an idea for a column, especially if you are interested in writing that column, please contact me.
So with that, I hope you enjoy the coming June issue, as well as those that follow!
