Well, GEM readers, you've certainly got your work cut out for you this month this issue is 120 pages long, our biggest ever!! Everyone worked extra hard, and we even managed to get things to the printer a day early. Of course, now the staff wants me to treat them to a lunchtime party, which, in light of their efforts, I think I'll do!

Our subscription department has a few tips to help you prevent delays in your magazine delivery. First, renew your subscription right away when you receive the advance renewal notice we send you. If you put it off and use the renewal form in the magazine itself, chances are you could miss a month or two of GEM. Second, the U.S. Postal Service is finally getting serious about the ZIP+4 system. In order for our mailing house to assign you the correct nine-digit zip code (and for you to get your magazine as quickly as possible), we must have the address the post office has assigned you. For years you may have been using a rural route and rural box as your address, but recently the post office has probably given you a more specific road or street address; that's the one we need to assure you the speediest delivery. We don't like mailing delays any more than you do, so let's work together to prevent them!

We've received a nice letter from subscriber Carl Carlsen of Lake Stevens, Washington, in which he suggests we solicit more input from all the model builders out there. He states, 'I know you can't print articles if you don't get them from us,' and he'd like to see contributions from model builders who are 'in construction on some particular project, detailing their problems, solutions, expertise, or whatever.' He'd also like to see perhaps a series of short pieces chronicling the completion of a particular engine, each covering a certain phase of construction, as well as more items sent for Wendel's 'Modelmakers Corner' in the Reflections column. We couldn't agree more, and welcome you to submit such articles for publication.

Being part of the engine world connects you to so many others across the globe. Our hearts go out to any of our readers who have been affected by the tragic circumstances in Oklahoma City. Our thoughts are with you all.
