  1. That is a side effect of giving information and one of the reasons it is like getting blood out of a stone. The publisher do not want to give out dates until they were 95% sure they are correct but then as I argue it is better to get information out and change it if something happens damned if you do damned if you do not. They thought after May that were were back on course as we were only two weeks behind original pre covid publications. But the issue at printers pushed us back again with no firm commitment until yesterday as to when it would go to print. For all the editorial an
  2. Here is an update that I got this morning that was sent to subscribers yesterday. Though many will get the mass mailing blocked by their ISP as SPAM including BT Internet that I use. Dear Readers Over the last 8 months we have faced many challenges related to the Covid pandemic in supplying out titles to our subscribers and stockists around the world for which I sincerely apologise. Traditionally we have always released our magazines in the last week of the month before the cover date. So as an example, the September issue is released in the last week
  3. I do not give excuses just explanations, do not want them do not read thread and thank you for your custom
  4. Des I think he was aiming at me not you. And the libellous claim has now been removed by the author. Trying to compare a large player like Key to a company that is at the end of the day in a very niche market and and a lot and I do mean a lot smaller is pointless . (To give you an idea just one of Keys large portfolio of titles has a worlwide market equal to all three of our titles combined.) Larger customers with print runs of tens of thousands of copies will always get priority in both material and print time slots when both are short.
  5. I know why now and has nothing to do with us as I have been told the printers have a difficulty. I still do not know when, though the latest was a hope that it is this week. But not sure where it is going to be printed. This issue is effecting shop and subscription sales. As soon as a date is 100% the latest issue will move to June on the web site. Ironically as we have all through the editors are on deadline and have just had the July issue signed off and are now working on August issues. And to clarify everyone who took out a subscription has had their copies all but late and w
  6. A quick update something wrong at printers delivery of June issues all 3 titles delayed, not sure what why and when. Will update as soon as I find out anything.
  7. OK i was wrong last night I said we had them in stock, . I went to go to start packing June magazine orders this morning but the boxes delivered to me yesterday were a restock not June issues . Apparently June delayed till Monday/Tuesday due to quality issue with printing. I apologise I did not look after my shift last night just saw I had ten boxes in garage when I put my bike away. Went down this morning to start packing and turns out were F-15 books and a box of May issues. That will mean IN WHS/Menzie end of next week., Sorry my bad but I was very tired after 12 hour shift.
  8. In fact ignore that. I have just checked and a shipping instruction was issued at 06.48 AM Saturday It was sent yesterday as 09.26 AM by Royal Mail so quoted delivery time up to 28 days. D
  9. You have not sent an email to me ? Can you forward me ALL your sent emails to david@modelaircraftmag.com. But I am on holiday from Monday so do it quick or you will have a week delay. D
  10. I got the email you sent copied to me and Mark at 10.57PM this evening. We are not a 24 hour operation so I doubt Mark will reply to this till the morning, It is now 2AM and I am only awake as I am on nights for the Ambulance service. . D
  11. This was the first time they sent from the office in over 5 years and no one there had done it before. Meaning they had a SNAFU moment and are having to do the whole lot again. The good or bad news is that I may be being involved with the June send to ensure it is done correctly. As I said right at the start if want a job doing get the modeller involved just hope my day job shifts let me do it.
  12. If you could pleases ASK them to contact mark@modelaircraftmag.com Mark says has already sorted the issue for at least 15 customers from NZ and Australia Same issue as here just takes longer to appear due to long postage times and same for resoloutions. D
  13. A The printers send them to us at the same time as to the retail distributor so they arrived with both yesterday And subscribers were collected by Royal Mail normal service today so should start hitting the mat on Saturday/Tuesday (Bank holiday Monday). All internet orders are also up to date, anyone who placed an order up to midnight last night were also dropped off this morning. All being sent by system that I have used to sort problems over last 3 weeks. DF
  14. THATS ALL FOLKS I am now back at work in all 3 of my jobs so back to 40-50 hour weeks (And that is after semi retiring I used to do 90) . So I have very little spare time, I will carry on helping anyone with missing issues of all 3 titles up to the April issues this week. From Monday 19th of April you will need to contact mark@modelaircraftmag.com or phone into the office on 01234-331431. The last plan I heard was to bring the operation back in house hopefully from May issue and use regular Royal Mail, which is the system I have used to send all the
  15. tHANKS No problem , nice to be thanked. Now anyone who has NOT contacted me or the office by mail post or carrier pigeon (The psychic link is still broken) in the last week and are missing any issue in the UK up to April please do contact us now. If you are in the EU or anywhere else NOT in the UK i am afraid you need to wait another two weeks as post is so delayed. I am trialing a new postage system from this week which seems to be working as advertised and this may be used for all subs going forward but a lot of work still to do to make it happen and
