Here's the short on digital magazine subscriptions from Klambach -- DO NOT SUBSCRIBE TO ANY OF THEIR MAGS!!!
Why? Simple, first, you are strictly limited to viewing the magazine *only* on the Kindle, iPhone or iPad. You cannot even view it on your computer like you can with nearly all other magazine publishers. This was a decision by Kalmbach not Amazon. Second, the price is high for a digital product! Wasn't digital content supposed to be easier to develop and publish? Last, many magazine publishers have realistic view on the future of printing and have begun to offer subscription packages that include both the printed version as well as the digital one. As of now (2012-09-07) Kalmbach has chosen to not offer this type of subscription - maybe it will change but I doubt it!
Please note that I have been a print subscriber of 'Model Railroader', 'Trains' and others from Kalmbach for over thirty (30) years. I did not reach my opinion lightly. Frankly I love my printed magazines and thought that a digital copy would be way to bring my magazine rack with me wherever I go. Sadly that didn't work out.
Therefore, my suggestion is if you want 'Model Railroader', 'Trains', 'Fine Scale Modeler' or others in their selection, opt for the printed copy - you'll be glad you did.TrainsModel RailroaderFineScale Modeler
