Like I am dealing with what magazine we have in our club

Look for the month? , then year?, volume?, issue? If you fine your self in this you may need to do what I am doing is to put a 0 in one of throes place
Or they never used it at all as a new magazine was back then you may need to fine the person on line for the puber this is what I have Ben doing from my iPhone.
That makes total sense.

Right, challenge accepted!

Possible translation:

I've been thinking about the lack of numbers in the corner. The only way to find out which number an issue is, is to check the editorial staff, and publisher info (on page 2).

Because the magazines are well behind the UK, there is no date info on that page.

Same thing happened to the club magazine.

How should we go about trying to catalogue them for the future? By month, followed by year, followed the number (from that month)? E.g 10142 would be Oct 2014, second issue. We will have to add some zeroes, e.g. 01 for Jan and not just 1.

Back in the old days they never actually gave each issue a number. Trying to find these issues online today is hard, and you have to make contact with the seller to clarify which issue it is.

I have been cataloging them using my iPhone (OR I have to ring the seller with iPhone to be sure which issue I am buying.)

We received Eps 7 & 8 today (Excelsior and K'Tinga) with a message saying that Ep 6 (Voyager) was delayed until next month. Curses!

You're in for a real treat! There are some outstanding models in this collection. The refit Enterprise is the worst, in my opinion, so it just gets better from here on out.
Yeah, I'm really looking forward to it. I've heard so many good things about the models in this thread... I'm really glad the subscriptions were finally made available in my country!

Regarding your comments:

1. Here in the US they come in boxes, which I'm happy about. I think the mail carriers will take better care of a box than an envelope.

2. The models began back in October here, so I don't remember if they were initially shrink-wrapped, but I know they aren't currently.

3. Yes, the US has the issue numbers, all the way to the current issue, 18.

4. I love having the binders for the magazines. When you get it, it might be confusing as to how to get the magazines in, but you'll get used to it. The way they fit in assures that they won't fall out and you won't huge rings getting in the way.
Thank you for your responses!

The NX-01 is a very nice model! And the Warbird is definitely in my top 5 models so far. They have done a fantastic job with the alien ships.
Glad to hear they've done such a good job with the alien ships. For some reason, I find I'm inordinately excited about getting the K't'inga in issue 7!

Hmmm, that's odd. I'm in the US and my magazines do not have numbers. I've also noticed that pictures online show the number displayed in the upper-left corner of the magazine. I figured the difference was between the UK and the US printings, but apparently not. Not a biggie, but I was curious too.
That's interesting, since the other US respondents all said they have numbers. Just out of curiosity, did you subscribe recently, or have you been a subscriber since the launch? I'm wondering if the initial batch all had numbers, but then they dropped them on reprints?

The numbers should be in the top left corner…
Yeah, I think Tarheel and I both mentioned that's where we were expecting to see them. But they're definitely not there on mine:



(The little line of text above the "Star Trek" title on the third issue is a line of prices in various regions. You can't see it in the pic, but one of the prices is the US price, so presumably this version is available in the US, as Tarheel's experience would seem to verify. Strangely, though, the Canadian price is not listed...)

I looked there, and I didn't see an issue number, but maybe I overlooked it in all the fine print. I've just been looking up the issue numbers on Memory Alpha. (Thanks for the translation, BTW! )

I can't help but wonder if this is the reason the issue numbers don't appear on the magazines in some regions: so they can alter the release order due to inventory issues or whatever, without appearing that things are arriving out of the intended order.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Got an email today for the shipment of Stargazer and Vor'Cha. Checked the tracking numbers and found that it should be delivered with my mail tomorrow. Can't wait to finish work tomorrow; IT'S STARSHIP DAY!

However, it did not mention my 10th shipment 3-nacelle Enterprise-D as being part of the shipment and that has me concerned. They will get an email from me if the ship, or an explanation as to why it is delayed doesn't come soon as well. I will also ask them what the delay is in regards to the JJprise special getting its release to US subscribers.

I too received an email. It curiously listed the cost for the Stargazer and Vor'Cha as $0.00.

Just checked my other emails. They indicate $0.00 as well.

I of course get billed every month on schedule

For those that have magazines without numbers, on the inside back cover, is there a preview of the next issue? If not, what is on the inside back cover?

The paper invoices that came with the shipments have always reflected the same as well. I think it's just the way they do the billing.

I think you're right. I do like getting the emails though, at least that's a line of communication that says "yes, we got payment and it's shipping on this date..."

No ships yet. Looks like I was mistaken. According to the USPS link though, they did arrive in my area Monday morning, so they should be arriving soon.

That $0.00 cost for the models is one of the few strange things in the emails that keeps me thinking it's possible the 3-nacelle Enterprise-D US subscribers should be getting might be in the box too, if not its own.

Regardless of whether the AGT E-D arrives or not, the $0.00 prices are not an indicator either way. Any of the invoices you've received (either via email or in the packages) have all said that you owe $0.00 for the models and magazines. It's just a technicality in the way they do their billing. You're buying a subscription, not the individual issues. The subscription costs $39.90 per month, the individual issues are $0.00.

That said, I'd bank on the AGT E-D not being in this shipment, since the previous freebies have also been included on the invoice.

My magazines do not have numbers on the front, but they still have the "Next Issue" preview inside the back cover.

You're probably correct, which makes me more concerned. I haven't had any problems getting any of the ships so far, but the AGT-D not being in the 10th shipment (as it is supposed to be) means either 10=11 or:
1: I'm starting to see problems with my subscription.
2: The US is seeing problems with our subscriptions.
3: Eaglemoss is having problems in the US and is hiding them from the subscribers.

3 might help explain the holdup with the JJprise special in the US too.
