I remember a controversy over a magazine publishing an article describing how to use a stove polish to blacken metal, and a paint Mfg. threatening to pull it's adds over it. If I remember correctly the magazine held it's ground and retained it's right to publish any article that benefited the modeler, even at the expense of a supplier.

Yes...that would be Allan Rice. He wrote an article on using stove black to paint engines. Floquil pulled their ads for about 5 years before coming back in the mid '50s. Al Kalbach just turned to the ad salesman and said find a replacement, and told Allen sorry to see them go, but we're here for the readers, not the venders...
