Ratch,

Are you still missing covers? I have virtually all of them from the 1st edition in June 1960 all the way up to October 1978. I', only missing a dozen or so.

I have come into possession of a few Airfix mags but using the link above doesnt give me a list of sorts or perhaps I am not reading, missing some obvious explanation of those that are required ?
I would like to be able to contribute if I had a list
Ian

Same here Ratch. I can't tell which ones you are missing.

I'm sorry, I don't have time to trawl through every entry looking for what's missing on the chance that someone might have it :(
If anyone has a missing picture, please post it in this thread and I will transfer it to the entry :smt024:

An initial looks suggests there are very few editions actually missing a photo, but there's more of a problem with broken or very slow loading links. I've worked through from Volume 1 to the end of Volume 10 so far, and will do the rest later (depending on how high the temp climbs today!). When I get to Vol 27 I'll post a summary of what I've found to see if it helps others.

OK, reached the end of the listing, the only issues that do not have an image file shown for them are those that are tagged as 'not published' (makes sense!) or where two months were combined, e.g Jan/Feb 93, image shown once, not repeated under 'Feb' which is labelled 'published with January' (again, very logical). So, it seems we now actually have a full house (unless there are any secret pics of unpublished issues lurking somewhere!) but there is a problem in a number of cases where the image file link is either broken, too slow for my browser to load, or being blocked by my anti-virus (some are slow to load, but are obviously high-res scans, and I've been patient with them to prove they will show idc). I can list the 'broken' links if anyone is interested; knowing how pesky it is to fix links to photo-hosting sites it might well be quicker to rescan and repost, providing someone has an original, but that ought to be a decision for Mods. In total there appear to be around 60 broken links. HTH.

Thanks David, I started to look and put an asterisk in the title of those where the image didn't show for me. I realise that mere mortals cannot do this, but its a start :dummy:
