Sorry to see you go, it has been good to have an editor who put so much effort into keeping in touch with their readers. Is this (near) retirement? Whatever, best of luck in it.

Hi David

No, I can't retire.

I still need to earn a living.

It will just be doing freelance work now.

regards David

Just to say thanks for the work you have put in over the last few years and I hope you will now be able to get some time in the workshop with the reduced work load.

I also wish Diane all the best in her new role of Editor, I know she is already on top of things.

David -

Important question for us writers...for future MEW articles, is sending them direct to you (but at the address) the right thing to do still, or should they go via the office? Presumably your old "myhobbystore" email address no longer works...

Hi Tony

All articles for MEW can go to

I expect the hobbystore address will continue to work for a long while.

My personal email address was in case anyone wanted to contact me about anything not related to ME or MEW.

regards David

Hi Ady

I think it's safe to say 'yes' to that one

Hi David, just to add my thanks for all your work for us, and all the best for the future. Hope you don't become a stranger to the forum.

Hope everyone will give Diane all the support she needs following in your footsteps, while making her own roads into editing ME.

Regards Nick.

Hi David,

A big thank you for your efforts over the years, in making both mags what they are today. Have seen many changes to MEW since I bought 1st issue and constant improvement. Have taken ME since June 1961 and it has varied in quality quite a lot but is now very much better. Very well done! Good luck in your new direction.

Hi Diane,

Wish you much success in your new position. Good luck in your new role.
