I am new to this site, but I wonder if anyone can give me advice of how to obtain issue 34 of Classic Routemaster Bus magazine, there must be a issue out there somewhere!
I've tried eBay and Amazon and headquarters Hatchette, they are sold out even on my subscription.
So just asking if anyone knows someone with a copy?

While i do not want to get your hopes up the following site deals in a number of previously available partworks.

While at this stage they have nothing listed for the routemaster it might be worth dropping them an email to see how they get back issues and if they can help now or in the future.

Hi just an update for likes of you guys that can't get issue 34, keep with it and persevere, I did manage to get 34 on ebay, and Hatchette told me they do get new stock in occasionally so worth keeping up with. But you do have to keep your eyes open.:)

And also Conqueror, go on to 'BuildtheRoutemaster' group page at Facebook and in working hours they will answer your questions and also help with anything they can. But I still say just keep your eyes open on ebay. Hopefully that helps you.

Well done, glad you managed to track a copy down.

It is amazing just how much people are prepared to pay sometimes that is for sure.

Yes well done. And you're right Tony it is amazing to the lengths people will go to get what they want. I been watching eBay and other sites now for several weeks and certain numbered issues of this magazine alone have been fetching extraordinary amounts of money. But I spose if you want something bad enough and money no object then good luck to themBigGrin I blame certain publishing companies and their partners for not giving out enough supply. That's my humble opinion.Mellow

Thank you guys. I was lucky I found a guy who was selling multiple routemaster issues (around 30 different issues) for 15 pounds each and in the description asks to send him a message with the specific number I wanted. He told me he has multiple copies of each number, so if you find the listing don't hesitate to send him a message to ask if he still has any copy. 15 pounds is pricey, but taking in consideration the prices I saw during my search it is a good price.

I'm also selling this issue for 100.000 pounds if anyone interests Laugh Laugh Laugh (just kidding)

Seriously, this is the absolute craziness. I'm wonder how the guy who spent 58 pounds for this will feel when Hachette restock the issue for 10 pounds hahahaha.

Time to continue the build!
