Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

It took a couple days, but I did eventually get an answer and a very favorable one, at that:
Thank you for your email.

I'm happy to confirm your subscription is up and running, and your subscriber code is ########. Your first shipment is due any day and should arrive shortly.

If there's anything else you need, please just ask.
Good news indeed, and very encouraging!

I would recommend anyone else who is concerned that they haven't gotten a confirmation email to drop them a line. Again, their address is startrek-ships(at)eaglemoss-service(dot)com (address adjusted to hopefully mitigate spam-bots).

Full speed ahead!

Well, it's been six weeks since I received their answer from my initial question asking about American pre-order subscriptions.

I sent a follow-up email on Sunday to see if they got their database in order and, so far, have received no response. I find this odd, as they answered me quickly the first time I sent out an inquiry and were quite up front and truthful regarding their technical issues.

Has anyone who pre-ordered in America heard from them, either from a person or via an automated order confirmation?
Yeah. I got my confirmation email within seconds (or a minute or so) after ordering. So I must've ordered before their technical difficulties.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Haven't heard much from them in a while, but I was one of the original subscribers. The last e-mail said as I had pre-ordered I would be getting an bonus gift.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I sent them an email asking about getting a subscription number and they replied that they will be sending it to me in another email closer to US release.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Seems to be out in the UK now, picked up issue 1 today.

Nice model, only had a quick flick through the mag. Was rather pleased to see that the first character whose picture you see in the mag is not Picard, or Kirk, or Janeway or whoever...but Ro. That's awesome.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Had the 1st issue loving it but £240 a year is expensive and the magazine is only 18 pages long. But I'm nor moaning to much the the die cast model is pretty good better than jonny lightning or futura ships ?? IMO anyway.

I've decided to choose and pick which ones i want !!! But might even subscribe yet as well waiting for issue 2 see what the movie E looks like ???

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

You might not be able to that, a lot of Newsagents stop getting part works after issue 6 or 8. As it then goes from Sale or return to firm sale only.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I've just got my USS Yamoto made by jonny lighting on the left and the new magazine die cast model to the right I assumed that both would be the same size but as you can see they are not.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Based on what I can see here, the bigger version that comes with the magazine appears to be better built, more detailed, possibly more accurate and...well...bigger!

Really liking the aztecking and decals they put on it. Seems to be a visible step-up to me.

Hi, just bought the magazine for my son. Have to say the model is brilliant!!! Nice detail on it. Hopefully the rest will be as good.

The magazine's quite a good read too.

As they say the bigger the better !!! Very happy indeed the magazine die cast is very good saying that on the bottom of the stand it says 4030 so I'm assuming that is the build number but I bet there are some that have missed the quality check ??? You always get that !! But we will see can't wait for the 2nd issue !!!
