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?
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.
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.
