I think I have the old issue in a box, Ill dig around and see if I can find it. I dont know what the copyright issues would be, the magazine has been defunct for years.
Copyrights extend past the life of publication or company, or the life of the original rights holder. Companies that go bankrupt usually have their creditors seize their copyrights. Copyright holders who die either will their copyrights to another person or if not specified the rights pass to next of kin.
In the case of Modeltec I believe the rights were sold to Daniel Smith of Louisville Kentucky. So it would be best not to post a copy here, as much as I would like a copy.
However, if you find the issue number I'd appreciate knowing the issue so I can try to buy an old copy of that issue of the magazine. I cannot find the article in my index of Modeltec magazine. Failing that I would try to contact Daniel to see if he has a copy for sale or would grant permission to authorize the copy of one.
