(A note about the Summer 2016, Spring 2017, Summer 2017, and Autumn 2018 issues: Due to the size of these photo-heavy issues, and uploading constraints on our website, we could only post medium-resolution version of these issues here. When viewed online, the text is fine but some photos might appear slightly pixelly; they will print better than they'll display on your screen. The best-quality version is available for download on our Facebook page. Summer 2016, Spring 2017, Summer 2017 and August 2018 are the only medium-res issues here on our website; the rest are high resolution.)
There's a lot going on while VCMEC's physical home-to-be is being renovated! We're not only promoting vintage custom model equines through our web site VCMEC.org, biennial live show Vintage Custom Model Equine Con- gress and innovative VCMEC Online World Championships show series, but are also documenting all the doings in our free quarterly publication, the VCMEC Model Horse Re-View!
With its title inspired by that of The Horse Review, the legendary 1885-1932 weekly turf journal, the VCMEC Model Horse Re-View presents and preserves nowaday's news and views on vintage custom model equines. It's published at the end of March, June, September and December. Click a button below to download and enjoy that issue...and be sure to print 'em for future fun! Each is designed to be printed double-sided. Add a couple staples down the side, and you've got a full-color, photo-filled, deluxe dose of vintage custom goodness!
