Those of you who read Model Cars Magazine will be familiar with Harry Pristovnik's magazine layout work. He also did layout work for Virgil Suarez (Dr Cranky) on a number of his books including Rats Rods n Rust, as well as more recently publishing his very own book 'The Evolution of the Automobile in Scale'. Unfortunately Harry succumbed to cancer in April of this year, and will be sorely missed by the auto modelling community. I had never met him personally, but conversed by email on a number of occasions from over here in the UK. He was always very generous with his help and willingness to share techniques with fellow model makers. The Model Cars Magazine forum will certainly miss him and will not be the same without his regular input about his builds and answering questions generally.
My condolences go out to his family at this very sad time.
