After a bit of umming and ahing ive decided to subscribe to this also. Seeing two recent posts off people on here subscribing to it somehow made up my mind to go for it. The body is all diecast from what i can tell so will somehow get around the visible screws problem. Havent built anything since the aston db5 so now have something to look forward to :D

The more the merrier :)

I am still trying to work out how to justify it to SWMBO! We are currently buying a house and pennies are in short demand. Perhaps it can come out of the "Decorating" budget ;)

I can't see anyone else confirming it yet, but this IS only a test :(

I believe it is a test. You'll know when you get your first issues, if there free it's a test.

Just had a letter this morning -

"Unfortunately, we regret to inform you that due to production difficulties, the publication of this title has been temporarily suspended. However, we hope to resume later this year".

Hey ho :(

Yep, got mine yesterday to. Although it was expected, the free apology gift was quite nice; A mini magnifying / clamp set.

...interesting to see no one has ever cared to change the more-than-obviously-ridiculous explanation, all partworks tests end because of "technical problems"...

Has anyone built what has been supplied so far?
Titanic was called The Ship of Dreams. And it was. It really was.

I contacted them the other day to see if there was any news and received the below in response just now. Is this the normal "we won't tell you anything until it hits the shelves" rubbish, or are they usually good with saying if something is coming soonish?

Thank you for taking the time to contact us

We have not received any information yet regarding the Routemaster. I would not advise you to wait as nothing has been said about it. We will however let you know should we receive any information.

Please feel free to contact us should you require further assistance.

I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up,but I was in WHSmiths this morning,looking at the new Dinky Toys partworks,when Itook a closer look at the sales blurb on the side of the display,about how you can order partworks from Smiths,and behind a picture of the Dinky partworks,I could see something about a classic routemaster.I looked closely and it was this one!!So surely its coming out,otherwise why advertise it with your most current partworks?But STILL I can find nothing online about this.
