I have a Subscription and I must say that the Mag is always here (Germany) a couple of days before official publishing date. No complaints at all.

Hi all, I wonder if they can find Canada on the map, I have not seen mine either, never mind it will make good reading over the Xmas holidays. Mick B.

I've still not had mine. I emailed them on Monday and had a reply yesterday, they've apologised and said they'll put a copy in the post. We'll see if that arrives, Dave.  {:-{

My Winter Special arrived 2 days ago, and very good it is, too. I much prefer the style and content of Model Boats magazine compared to MMI, but that is just my personal opinion. Both mags are good, but I don't bother with MMI these days, even though I was a subscriber for a couple of years.

My local WH SMith always has the specials and the monthly on time and was in there from the 28th which is the only reliable way I can get it on time which works for me.  Must say although its not a bad issue I personally dont think its as good as the previous specials.  The Arizona and Tug reviews were very good but overall the previous special hit the spot more than this one for me.

Mick,

Have you contacted the North American distributors?

expsmag@expressmag.com
tel:(001) 877 363 1310 which is the contact for ALL North American subscribers (see inside the cover of the magazine)

Having a moan on here won't improve your prospects of receiving this literary masterpiece.... %)

Hooray, my replacement copy finally arrived this morning. Still no sign of the original, suppose I'd better log off and read it now... :-X

Hi Colin, I tried the # as you suggested. For some reason it will not work from here.( Canada ) The operators said that the # would not work from Canada. I will now try using a regular U/k # or I will email them, thank you once again for your help. Mick B.

I don't understand that Mick. That is the number on their website so surely it must work? http://expressmag.com/en-CA/magazines/

I don't know what the rules are for phoning the US from Canada but presumably you have to include the country code.

Hi Colin, We don't use a code for the US, they just have different areas as we do in Canada. In fact if you phone Alberta ( my Province) there is a code for the north & a separate code for the south. I had the operator come on the line & said that I could not dial that # from here, so I just gave up at that point, our operators are not the best, probably working in India or some place like that. The only nice thing here is we have NO charge for our local calls, & it costs just 3p a minute to phone most places overseas including Australia & U/K. Mick B.

"Gift" arrived, unfortunatly the mini jigsaw has been replaced by a mini drill with accessories as they ran out of stock.

Bit dissapointed, I now have to sell the drill (already have a Dremel) and get the jigsaw as that's what I wanted in the 1st place..
