I have been building the Ford Shelby Mustang for about a year. Six months ago I requested customer service to send me copy of magazine issue 39 that was missing from my shipment.

I was resently told that they are no longer publishing the magazine and it could not be replaced. I have since recieved pack 22 which is missing Mag issues 83 and 84.

So I now have a set of magazines in binders, missing 3 issues, which makes the entire collection worthless.

How can the company contract with me over a year ago to supply a quality model WITH magazine collection, at a cost of over $1500 USD, and then NOT provide ALL of the magazine issues.

I was told that the missing issues could be downloaded and printed from the website. Firstly the download is just the build instructions, not the entire mag and second, the print quality from a computer is not up the the magazine standards.

I requested a call back from the 'home office' 4 days ago with no response.

where can I call to resolve this issue. I would hate for this to be the last Model Space product I buy.

I remember when things really “kicked off” all those years ago with the HMS Victory model.

The magazines with that kit and later the Sovereign of the Seas i thought were fantastic.

Really interesting articles and great supporting pictures.

I understand that with later productions of kit parts and new releases its as you have found - just the downloadable instructions.

My lambourgini was the same but luckily a previous builder was very kind in giving me their copies.

That might be an option if someone has built the kit and are happy to pass on their magazines.

Hope you manage to get your missing copies.


Happy Modelling
