L'abbonamento in effetti ha una certa convenienza e, eventualmente, ti consente di evitare tribolazioni nella ricerca della rivista.

L'unico problema può essere costituito dal fatto che, nonostante venga spedita per posta prioritaria, per pervenirti dall'Inghilterra può impiegare tre o, a volte, anche quattro settimane .... :angry:

Infatti i miei dubbi riguardano i tempi di spedizione;ora sto provvedendo a chiedere degli arretrati di AFM ..chissà quando arriveranno;peraltro uno dei numeri che volevo richiedere è esaurito.Segnalo inoltre che nell'offerta di abbonamento di AFM quest'anno c'è in omaggio un DVD sul Mirage 2000-5.
