Never felt the need to post here but this time there is something I wanted to say. Although I like the magazine a lot Like some others I feel left out as a foreign subscriber. We don't get the welcome present on first subscribtion, we can't take part in any contest either. Not realy a big thing for me, just the magazine is more then enough. Nut now we don't get the extra suplement either. Not the jet suplement, neither the from the workbench one. Keep up the good work in putting the magazine together but don't forget the foreign subscribers either.

I'm in the same position, Patrick, with my mag sent overseas. If you have the subscription, the supplements are available in the Digital Archive

As a casual buyer of RCM&E I always have a quick scan of the contents to see if there's enough interesting reading before parting with the cash. If there isn't or if I can't scan the contents it goes back on the shelf.

Perhaps I'm in the minority of casual buyers but the "nudge" backfires on me, I never buy any copy that comes with a supplement due to the fact that it's in a sealed bag.

Personally I choose to support the magazine by buying a subscription as there is always something of interest and RCM&E broadens my model flying horizons too. The hobby will be the poorer without this flagship magazine and it will surely founder without people buying subscriptions. Subscription numbers are important to advertisers and advertisers are the lifeblood of magazines.

It is a good magazine, support it, don't cherrypick; get a subscription!

Thanks for your interest, Piers but I'm happy to make my own choice as to which good causes deserve my financial support.

Not sure if I should post this here but on page 15 there is a little Biplane. It's a stunning looking plane and was wondering if anyone knows what it is ? Biplanes always look a bit special in my opinion they always look like they loop really tight with no effort too.

Thanks Bob and Kevin those 2 plans look great. I think maybe when I get the kits I have built I will move on to that Der Jager. That Outerzone website is amazing I spent quite a lot of time looking through the biplanes I did not even get through 1/10 of them. Is RCM&E involved in creating that website and it's content too ?

Doesn't work for me either - I have a print only subscription. Pity, I would have liked at least to see what's inside the supplement.

Is it true that subscribers to "print only" are able to access subscribers only articles via this site ? If so why not include the contents of supplements with these articles. That way the overseas subscribers will at least be able to read them, so long as they have internet access.

Lorenz, would my above suggestion work for you ? Do you have access to subscriber only articles via this site ?

Thanks Pete, I've read the digital suplement but always prefer the paper copy. It's just that I feel a bit left out in this, after all, we do pay more then UK subscribers, and that's normal after all, but still we don't get a little thing like this. Oh well, guess digitall will do also.

cheers

Selling magazines can be a challenging business these days and occasional offers on the shelves in UK newsagents (particularly WH Smith who - needless to say - sell more copies of the magazine than any other retailer) will come along from time to time. We have to sometimes give the UK casual buyers (still the largest market) a nudge from time to time.

I can appreciate the sentiments of course and we'll keep things under review going forward.

I don't know how the incentives of the supplements for UK only, subscribers/buyers are working out for the revenue gathered, but I can tell you that you're starting to really annoy your overseas subscribers. If there's one thing guaranteed to cause displeasure it's to treat people differently.

I like the issues that are sealed in an outer wrapper, it stops tight wads sneezing all over the pages while browsing.

I love the magazine including the free plans and the articles are always interesting even if they are not exactly relevant to me here in Australia however, I do echo the sentiments of the previous posts regarding feeling a little left out when it comes to the “extras” that are only offered to the UK subscribers. I pay the extra for the electronic version but it is sometimes not that easy to read depending on internet speeds and devices etc.

I am yet to find anything to surpass RCM&E and so I will continue to subscribe but it would be nice if international subscribers were acknowledged in some small way even if it was the ability to enter a competition or two, after all we do pay a premium for our copies due to the postage costs (not for one moment suggesting that the postage is excessive, in fact it is fairly reasonable). It’s just the time waiting for it to arrive that drives my impatient mind mad. I’m usually about one edition behind you guys.

Keep up the good work and please keep the free plans. They are really interesting models and I learn so much from them. How about an article or two on flying techniques similar to the ones you did on landing? They were great. Maybe some on aerobatic manoeuvres? That would be cool.

Thanks again.

The 'free' suppliments don't particularly interest me, but I can understand the frustration of the overseas readers who don't get the chance to have a hard copy.

Cuban 8 - Picked up my RCME this morning the free supplements are not of any interest to me as well, the latest 'Freebee' being boats. Just heading for the recycle bin would rather the RCME issue price was less.

Agree with you Kev, the recent workshop supplement was very weak.
