hi andrew, supposedly due to french holidays everthing is slowing down there, people complaining that the parts haven't arrived etc.
#18 has been published (interestingly as they are soooooo slow normally) on the altaya homepage but apparently not delivered,
let's see what happens tomorrow, there should be a sign of life - btw sadly before I was able to get everything together, the 2cv has vanished from the homepage, so no parts for me...
will need to look if I can get them from portugal... :(

18 in stock now, funny though that #19 is not mentioned on the altaya homepage today -
(I picked up my stuka parts from last week and there was a leaflet enclosed telling me that this week there'll be nothing due to holidays)
maybe something similar going on over there, just without a helpful leaflet...

well I don't really know what to think, the altaya homepage shows issue #20, our friends might take a two weeks course again -
the page is active as they have the #1 vw cabriolet + the second issue of the lambo reventon, just might have delays with receiving the DS??
next update next tuesday (hopefully...)

still angry they dropped the 2cv without previous note and thus no chance to buy a bit more...

btw most of the subscribers in france complain they haven't received #19 yet - so it seems to be an altaya issue even though they have published #20 on their website...

I see they had a two week split on the ferrari enzo as well - the last issue from that arrived on aug 16 - just the same as our DS...
...and I haven't received my local db5 issue this week either - so I'd say it's the summer blues...

I think we may not qualify for any freebies as we're basically just buying from a newsagent and not subscribing even if we buy regularly -
I haven't got any freebies on my victory or stuka or db5 which I'm buying (have been with the victory as it's over now) at my news agent as well...

I'm just wondering if the agent will catch up one day and show us 2 issues in a week, as we're now 2 issues down the line from what altaya is showing on the site...

no andrew, it's a simple open top box to hold the monthly mags, something like we had with the DB5...
I suppose we can save around 27€ in the course of the build if we leave these where they are...
I have so many empty folders where to put the mags...

oh and the freebies: there are a few items that come free like a 1:43rd scale DS - the larger 1:18 scale models can be bought at a "premium" price but are not free...

...as it seems, a small hickup again - no new parts (should be #25) on the altaya site...

#25 is of course the missing rear seat rest including the movable (as it seems) arm rest...
#26 is a bit of a controversy: some say it's designation implies it's a part of the bulkhead, my goog translator insists it's the front lower body panel, picture probably available online from tuesday...

sooooooo, #26 is the floor panel that connects the floor with the dash...
why do these partworks companies have such hard times in giving the parts the right name...

biting the nails what next - maybe we know tomorrow...
time we got some substantial chassis or body parts - we've already (almost) arrived at 1/4 of the issues,
and after all if you count the bodywork parts it's 11 parts that will for sure arrive individually (4 wings, 4 doors, front lower body, boot lid, roof),
and then judging by the 2CV it'll be another 6 issues to get us the windows + another 4 issues (at least) for the door internal parts,
so here you go, at least 21 issues just for the bodywork + how many issues for the front + rear lights + rear bumper...
and where's the suspension, the rims + tyres + exhaust...

so the secret is out: #27 is the other front wheel assembly (just the same as we got with issue #2), now we just need another 3 wheels...
