I noticed Amazon's price is not "reasonable," at least not to me. Here's the addendum to the second edition:

Thanks. I contacted wmparkflyers to see if they would be getting anymore books in, but at this point they are not. Amazon prices are outrageous.

You have to keep checking Amazon, I was lucky enough to find a copy at a reasonable price.

Yeah, some of those 'Collector Sellers' dealing thru Amazong can get pretty nutsy with their pricing.
Why'nt you try contacting Scott thru Model Aviation magazine, see if maybe he's got a stack in his closet? Might even be in for a nice surprise.

"'m behind the 8-ball on this. This has been a hard spring/early summer for me and my family with a couple of unexpected death's in the family that we're still sorting through. None involving my children or wife, so that's good, but still dealing with some unexpected issues that are to date unresolved. Sucks being the responsible "siblings"... more crap to sort through...

I will be updating the book, and will include weeble's, snake, pop top, etc, so probably around 6 new figures. Just need some time and a new laptop to get it going.

Again, sorry that I have let this stuff lapse, and for my lack of involvement on RCG seeing this so late. Been one hell of a lousy spring so far...

I'll get it updated and back in print ASAP.

Got a PM from Jim, and I have a handful of copies that were slightly damaged in manufacturing in my basement. The damage is a slight burn on between 1-3 pages on the edge where it was cut too quickly. If anyone is interested, I'll be happy to hook them up.

On the next edition, still not sure if it makes sense. This would at least hook those of you that would like a copy of the 2nd edition (which is the latest) until I run out of copies. $20 for the book, and $6 for the shipping seems fair? Certainly more fair than $150. That's just silly.

Shoot me an email at smstoops73@gmail.com if you're interested.

@Scott - I's tempted but I'ma wait for the new release. (How's that for inspiration? *LOL*)
By time it comes out, maybe I'll be ready for those new tricks.

Glad to hear the sun's shining a bit brighter now for ya.

I said it in the email and neglected to say it publicly:
Thanks, Scott, for posting this thread and especially for letting us get a copy of your book.

And, thanks StarHopper for suggesting it.

RCG is really a great community.
