Hello and Questions

Greetings to all,
I've recently subscribed to this list, having a keen interest in
WWI aviation--particularly German fighters, and would like to take this
opportunity to say hello and also ask a few questions.
I haven't been an active modeler since the '70's. Instead, the
last several years have seen me building up an extensive collection of kits,
decals, and references, waiting for the day when I had the time, space, and
confidence to actually build something. Well, it seems that day is just
about here, and although I have no intention of ever entering a contest or
producing anything better than a "decent" model, I'd still like to do my
best, hence my first two questions (and I apologize if these topics have
been covered here recenntly):

1. Can anyone offer any suggestions concerning rigging methods and
materials for both 1/72 and 1/48 kits?

2. How does one use wood-grain decals? How can pieces be measured and
applied to round fuselages?

I also have a couple of questions for you readers of Over The
Front (I haven't seen an issue since Vol. 9 No. 3):

1. Was the JGII color article from the above metioned issue continued
in No. 4, and have any similar articles appeared in Vol. 10?

2. What is the current address to which I could write for subscription
information, and what is the current subscription rate?

I look forward to reading your responses. Many thanks in advance.
