Not a moan, are pack 18 instructions available for download yet or is my browser playing up again? I can't tell as last time 2 months ago I had pack 16 and was checking daily for over 2 weeks, pack 16 and 17 instructions only appeared after clearing the cache (and losing some site info in the process). Figured I would ask here if anyone else is able to see them before wiping data to pull them through and them still not being there if that makes sense

Nope, they aren’t up yet. I was just looking today as well. I’ll ask, though.

Stay well,

Cool, cheers Mark. It would be helpful if you could so I can figure out if I'm having browser troubles or not 👍🏻

Thats good to know Glyn. Its just the past few times the only way I have been able to see them was by clearing the cache to pull them through which is mildly frustrating, hence checking in here

Just downloaded pack 18 and some pages have bits written in a foreign language -

Page 290, step 76.1 the image is annotated in foreign language
Page 297, bottom image annotated in foreign language
Page 302, Heading title in foreign language

Could someone contact the powers that be to have these corrected to English please? I would personally like have the instructions correct in my collection and I don't understand then.

I too have noticed the parts written in French.
Nothing major, but I'll pass the info to Admin.

I just looked at the PDF's on my end and yes, some of the translations are in French. I have Firefox with a built-in translator and if you highlight the text and right click, you can get a translation for other languages.

I guess they were in a hurry to get this out. They're behind on getting parts sent as I finally got a notice that #18 is to be on my doorstep as of this coming Monday. Waaaaay behind they are, as there were several months that went by that I got nothing at all.

Deffo not a browser issue as I'm viewing directly in Adobe acrobat reader after downloading. It's not a big issue but its sending my OCD into overdrive with the collection having a section out of place as I have kept and printed out all the instructions for my build.

I really don't understand how they can be behind on getting the instructions out, I mean surely they should be written before parts even come into stock let alone sending them out? I've had pack 18 for nearly 2 weeks now. Just frustrating that's all. I know this is produced in France where they get a physical magazine with it too, which means there must be an original digital copy, shouldn't take someone with even basic computer skills much more than 30 mins to translate the French version into English, proof read and upload. I'm also pretty gutted we don't get the magazine articles as it would have been nice reading.

Perhaps de agostini need to have a word with whoever is in charge of that?

Hi guys,

It looks like someone screwed up in getting the guide posted on the UK site. I’ll send off an email next.

In the meantime;

Best,

Mark

PS- I’ve been a bit out of touch, due to spine surgery 10 days ago. Even so, my apologies for not picking up on this.


PPS-page 16 is in French. That should be changing ASAP.
