The website has finally been updated!
First the bad news: the magazine will now consist of 85 instead of 75 issues (even though the FAQ section still mentions 75 issues, the text on the main page just underneath the photo of the model mentions the number 85). Strangely enough the German site still mentions 75 issues (though this may just be because it hasn't been updated yet).
The effect this has on the total cost for subscribers in the UK is a rise of 69.90 GBP, from 519.25 GBP to 589.15 GBP (1.99 GBP for issue 1 and 6.99 GBP for each issue thereafter).
The German edition will now cost € 845.15 (= 730.65 GBP) instead of € 745.25 (= 644.28 GBP), a rise of € 99.90 (€ 5.99 for issue 1 and € 9.99 for each issue thereafter).
Then the good news: they give you the guarantee that, when you subscribe, all parts will be reserved for you, so there's no way you won't be able to finish your model.
The photo of the model is now interactive, e.g. when you click the word 'bonnet' underneath the photo, you'll see the bonnet open. All the other features are shown too in that same way (also the ones seen from the back).
Quotes from the 'Subscribe' page (even though the page has been changed, subscribing is not yet possible):
# Four issues delivered to any UK address every four weeks

# No commitment – stop your subscription at any time
# Cardboard backing for magazines to ensure safe delivery
# Courier option available (additional fees apply)

The free gifts haven't changed.
And for any of you who've only seen the tv advertisement so far (on the website), there's another short film on YouTube, showing the model a little better (which has been there for quite some time, by the way).
