No CK, it was extended by a week. It should start arriving on UK subscriber doorsteps next week.

Covid and lockdown2 being the reasons I'm assuming.

RCME arrived this morning. It says December2020/January2021. Does that mean there is no January issue next year? How do we even get 12 issues a year let alone the 13 issues once advertised?   The advert here on the forum still says digital+print subscribers get 13 isssues online!

Opening the Dec/Jan RCME reveals that the next issue is February 21! No 'Special' and no January issues. So we have lost another issue and instead of the recently advertised 13 paper issues per year we now look to be getting only 11........

I wouldn't mind but I haven't noticed any advance warning of this or any explanation at all - unless I have missed something. A reply from the management on this thread would be welcome.

Why is my subscription terminated? I have a direct debit set up and have been receiving RCM&E for some years. Now I try to initiate a new subscription and it tells me my email is invalid. I can still log on and make a posting so what is going on!

Don`t really want to post doom and gloom for the mag. which I have had almost from the first issue, but there is very little of interest to report on, presumably for the fairly distant future. With the shortage (none existence?) of balsa supplies, there is little point in continuing to publish free plans unless these are kept for happier days.

Surely there must be people out there who can impart some of their knowledge of things like making up proper linkages, not sloppy plastic snakes; how to mould your own cowls and spats by a practical modeller, not a GRP professional; installing various types of retracts so that they actually work; fitting hinges correctly; servo installation; compatible paint to go with the chosen covering; how to program various Tx`s for, say, a four servo glider wing; cutting your own foam wing cores and how to skin them, etc.

Nik, this website and the subscription side of things are unconnected. Probably best you contact subscriptions direct to see what's going on.

Martin.

It isn't just magazine content that is the problem. The advertisers don't want to spend as they have nothing on the shelves to sell. Supply chains are in tatters. The physical shops also have lots of empty shelves and little chance of filling them until well into the new year.

In my opinion it is a sensible move for any sales based magazine (That's about 99% of them) to drop to bi-monthly issues. At the moment the important thing is survival, for all of us. Publishers are under the same pressures as all industries. On the positive side, there might be a glut of free plans when things return to normal (whatever that is).

My advice is go online and buy some back issues of magazines you never bought for reading material. That's what I did (it also works out cheaper !). smiley

Just put it down as another "Covid cost"

Not sure that the idea to stop printing plans due to the rumored shortage of balsa holds water. Those plans aren't going to spontaneously combust and can just be stored, whilst most are probably never built from anyway.

Like many folks if I wanted to I could easily build at least 10 free plan sized models without having to buy a single sheet of balsa and probably a couple just from the scraps box. There is also balsa out there if you really did need more.

No sign of this month's mag yet though.
