I can't remember when exactly I received my copy of issue #5 in the mail; in another thread Talen states he received his issue #5 either late January or early February 2015. I assume most subscribers that paid for a six issue subscription would have received their copy of issue #5 at about the same time. Given that timeframe, we have been waiting approximately 19 months (March 2015 to September 2016) since the shipping of issue #5 and still have not received the sixth (and last issue of the paid subscriptions).
Is issue #6 going to be printed and shipped? If so, when?
I understand why I am included in these questions, but to be perfectly honest I have no control over the delay. I do not reply on behalf of Scott, speak for him or have any idea as to his plans aside from the email I received in the beginning of the year that I alluded to earlier in this thread.
All of the models/articles for issue six have been submitted and in my possession for a long time now, I have turned several in to Scott to begin laying out issue six and am only waiting for word back to turn in the remaining work. He designs/lays out the magazine, I only source the modelers to submit and supply him with the pictures and text.
Now before we read into this post I want to be clear, this isn't me pointing fingers or laying blame, skirting my involvement or anything of the sort but I simply cannot answer your questions as I have nothing to do with the physical design of the magazine.
I know when issue five was shipped, aside from the two issues mailed directly from the printers to subscribers after we changed to printing overseas, I'm the guy who packs, labels and ships all of them. I have been waiting just as long as the subscribers to hear something.
I'm sorry for the delay, I really am... but aside from logging in here to reply to these questions the best I can, I'm not sure what else I can say/do.
I too, have been wondering about the future issues. Way back when, I bought issue #1 AND a six issue subscription (starting with #2). Gotta think the likelihood of issue #6 is pretty damn slim, let alone #7.
I guess I'll just keep my fingers crossed.
