Hi, new to this forum so please be patient.

Has anyone received their display case cover yet?
Had mine yesterday, to say I’m disappointed is an understatement!
£170 for 5 pieces of Perspex that hopefully will interlock together. I was expecting a one piece moulded cover for that price!
Still contemplating sending it back!

Secondly I received an email on 23rd Dec telling me to hold up on the build as there’s an issue with the pcb on the plane, I’ve heard nothing since. Even with only 2 mags arriving today there was no additional explanation.
I phoned Hachette and another board will be released with issue 100, so all on standstill till then.
Considering the amount of money this project is costing I feel this is pretty shoddy customer service, they could at least send the occasional email update.

Sorry for the moan

I will complete issue 91 by mounting the PCB in the base assembly…sorry for moving to and fro…after mounting the PCB, the step next was relabelling the speaker wire and then plugging in the various functions…
