    I usually hate these type of magazines with a passion...............but i just might

    Edit: on second thoughts its £7.99 an issue and there are 85 issues, 4 issues a month, i dont think so

    I saw this on TV earlier, im pretty sure it was only £1.99, £7.99 would be daylight robbery (thats more than your average mobile phone contract!), i would want a real f1 car for that price! :D

    I usually never bother with mags like that either, but for some reason, same as you said, there was something tempting about it...

    1:8 is a very large, for a model, would be nice. Ragnarok it's £7.99 after the second issue.

    Mmm thats a bit too big really, most people would struggle to find somewhere to put it in their homes and £7.99 is a bit extortionate for a daft magazine...

    Thats nearly 2 years worth! These deagostini things you always see them for the first few issues in the newsagents, but i wonder how many of them they make it to the end?

    Yeah but if you try and purchas a decent 1:8 scale F1 model your probably looking at about £3000 so its actually pretty cheap!!!

    try it search Google shopping or something

    Thats because they only sell to the people who subscribe no-one is going to be interested in buying issue 30 if they haven't got all the others.
