Default Is Model Airplane News (digital access) worth it for old articles and plans?

I received an offer to subscribe to Model Airplane News at $20 for a year. I don't really care for the magazine, but the subscription includes digital access. I haven't used or seen their digital archive. If I could gain access to old plans and articles from the 70's and what-not then I think it would be a good deal. Has anybody used this service? If so, what did you think of it?

I am not sure about the articles, but I know you can still get most of the Model Airplane News plans here.

Yeah, I have bought a number of their plans. I am more interested in whether anyone has used their digital access service.

Unless you really like to build and actually build from their plans, it just seems like something that I would avoid spending money on. One of the things I like about scratch building is that the plans can be free. I spent an hour last night looking at all the plans, many old plans and some old MAN plans on outerzone.co.uk last night, and only got through a few of the many pages. They are all free there, like many other places.

Gang he is talking about the digital magazine - not the plans.

I too have wondered about it - this:

Mojo - I am unsure - don't have it. But it looks pretty cool especially the video components. Not out much if it isn't all that.

He' mentions both plans and articles.

I read this, and got the impression he wasn't all that interested in the magazine:

Hey Guys,

I appreciate the responses. I was under the impression that, if you signed up for MAN, you gained access to their digital archive. I think this includes old back issues of MAN. If this is true, I am curious how far back it goes and what it includes.

Cheers,

Mojo

I get the magazine, but cannot get to any of the building articles. I am pretty sure the charge for the archives is $25 a year.
