Well great news, Bob Hayden package showed up today, just under 3 days from when I ordered it! Thanks Bob! Copying all the files onto the PC drive as I type. Looking forward to going back to the beginning and catching up on these. I have only a few sporadic issues I've picked up in mixed magazine deals off eBay. Loved the writing style and contents enough to order the complete archive and subscribe to NG&SLG, plus pick up the few back issues to get a complete set of them to present.

So far the quality looks great, recommended to anyone thinking of ordering one of their own. :2t:

I'd like to see that, but I don't think it's likely. My favorite drivers are Jenson Button, and Kimi Räikkönen in todays F1 world. In the past I was a big fan of Heinz-Harold Frentzen, Mika Häkkinen, and of course Michael Schumacher. I photographed F1 at most every year they were at Indianapolis, haven't been to the Austin race, and I live just up the road (about 2 hours) from the track. Cost is just gone through the roof to attend, plus the sound isn't the same and I can see more on TV anyways.

My other hobby is astrophotography, I run two local observatories in Texas and one remote in Australia. This hobby is really a black hole of funds, but I enjoy it never the less. The three telescopes I use could easily have purchased a Lamborghini or modern Ferrari. :shocked:

Hi Chriss.

Good to hear the Gazette DVDs have arrived & are good.

My start in U.S N-scale as a kid, was based on very little actual info.

20 years latter, my fav. train-store in London (now closed) got the Gazette in for me for a few years.
This was during what some would say was the 'golden-era' of the magazine.
I was hooked on U.S N.G for LIFE !

Now of course we are all totaly spoilt with the MASSIVE resource of the W.W.W.
Freerails ROCKS !
& I haven't bought a magazine in 10 years.

:moose:

Si.

I was greatly entertained by both Jenson & Kimis championship years !
I am still a big Kimi fan & was not surprised to hear he got the 'fans vote' of fav. driver by some margin; although a very media-shy, unglamorous character !
I liked watching the races at Indy.

Got a great shot of the moon the other night...
...Lumix u4/3rds with Tamron 200mm f2.8 + TWO 2x teleconverters.
Not bad for an amateur !

I had a tiny Graham Hill driving my F1 slot car in the '60s, and Jimmy Clark was a hero of mine. I haven't watched much F1 since he was killed.

Golly gee, I sold all my old Gazettes years ago. Got a very nice chunk of change for them and promptly spent it all on train stuff, groceries, and utilities. Now I wish I had more to sell!

Woodie

Woodie,

I did the same, back about 2000, sold all my issues from the 70's & 80's, for decent money.

With the archive DVDs available now, I doubt one would get as high a price, per issue, now.

I just bought my copy, arrived 3 days after ordering (even though my order, on Bob's website still shows "Awaiting Shipping" :)

NOTE!! After installing the initial executable program, I opted to load all issues onto my hard drive. Got disk 1 done, but upon inserting disk 2, was told it was wrong disk. I checked the contents of disk 1 and disk 2, they were identical. My disk 2 was mislabeled. A email to Bob brought s response the next day, stating a replacement disk 2 was on it's way. Should be in mail box when we get home tomorrow.

In the meantime, I connected my Android tablet to my comp, and copied the earliest 12 issues to it, to take along to daughters for the Christmas visit.

So, all in all, except for mislabeled disk, ti=totally painless transaction and setup. Well worth the price.
