When Will New Issue Show?
Posted by Doc Ward on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 5:24 PM

I'm still a new subscriber, so that may be the cause, but I was at my local hobby shop today and saw the new issue of the magazine (which is also advertised in the upper right corner of the forum) on sale. I was a little surprised, since I haven't received my issue yet. I didn't think anything of it when I received my first issue of the magazine and it was one I had already bought locally as well, but today just got me wondering. Is this normal?

Gotta say, doctor, your talent for alienatin' folk is near miraculous.

Pretty much... There is a tendency for stores to get the latest issues before subscribers.

 

F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

N is for NO SURVIVORS...

Oh my...last time I bought a "hobby magazine" at a store was the first FineScale Modeler issue. I can't remember where, might even been in a "hobby store" back when there were more than just one or two in the metro area I'd lived in at the time. For 100% sure know where I'd purchased a first-issue Scale Modeler copy some 52 years ago, the super drug store still is in business.

Thanks. Nice to know. Not like other subscriptions I've had, it seems. I will just have to wait...

Like Inigo Montoya... I hate waiting

That's why I never subscribe to any magazine subscriptions.
