Zur Geschichte des Kartonmodellbaus - vol. 8
Summary: In this volume there were typesetting and illustration errors. This PDF file (665 kB) contains all corrections and also all the correct illustrations.
Dear members, dear readers,
right from the start the layout-and-typesetting software "PageMaker" was used for the prepress stage of the AGK magazines. When working on the the article about the publisher MON (Poland) we observed that the program did not render correctly the diacritical marks used in the Polish language. All summer we hoped that Adobe would be able to offer an easy solution, but after the layout had been completed we found that we would have to switch to "Indesign". Unfortunately, converting the layout to Indesign set the layout askew, and we had to re-format and re-align it manually. In the process we made errors – not distorting the core content, but very annoying nevertheless. In addition, some illustration files had been re-linked wrongly. We are sad to say that in the hurry to get the magazine vol. 8 to the printers' we missed some of these late errors; we apologize to our readers.
Members of the AGK have received a printed correction page, together with the magazine, in February 2009. If you bought the magazine as a non-member, we offer a PDF file (665 kB) for download that contains all corrections and that also has the correct illustrations. Alternatively, you can request a printed correction page from, preferably via e-mail:
