Hi RJW
Missing issues no longer in stock are someones error.
The subscription house and MyHobbyStore have sufficient copies to cover any missing issues, over 150 copies between them.
The subscription house keeps them for three months and MyHobbyStore until sold out.
Someone somewhere is misinforming readers.
We have many thousand subscribers to both magazines.
Inevitably there will ocasionally be a problem with a subscription and this will normally be sorted within a couple of working days.
regards David

Hi
Issue 172 still not arrived in Phalaborwa South Africa.
In the past year, it arrived about 7 days after the date mentioned in the previous issue.
Taking the weather, cancelled flights in concideration. It should have been here by Friday, up to this morning no MEW in post.

Hi There
Someone received their copy in the UK yesterday.
I think some copies are still held up in the post.

I think it is fair to say if it they do not arrive by this Friday 7th January 2011, they must be deemd LOST and our subscriptions extended appropriately.  There is also the matter of ME4394 to consider. No bad weather excuse on this one!

Hi Andrew
We use something called Royal Mail Press stream I think which implies Royal Mail all the way.
I suspect Royal Mail will clear backlog before delivering next magazine 4394.
Some readers have received 4394 so it is out there.
It went to press early because of Christmas.
4395 has already gone to printers.
The editorial team is on time.
regards David

ME4394 arrived today. ME4394 arrived today. Yes that's right, two copies in the same wrapper. Does this mean I have to build two of everything?

Well, I just got the bonus one for ME 4394 here in hot and humid Auckland NZ. So I will pass the extra one on to a mate who does not subscribe.  They seem to be turning up pretty well as one wold expect, this one and the one on Christmas eve are probably a few days behind the average, but that is reasonable for the time of year.  Anyway the airmail sub is better than relying on the local importers, who never used to be any good.

John

Well, the postman has been, and still no ME 4394 here in sunny Andover.
Assuming  it is lost, could you request a replacement for me please, David?
Regards,

4394 finally arrived yesterday, but still no 4393. And no answer to the email I sent to the subscriptions address in the front of the mag - will try and phone somebody tomorrow.
