Is the Model Cars Magazine available in Europe?

Before subscrbing, would love to see a magazine. And 50 bucks for 'only' 9 issues is a bit much.The 30 bucks for in the States are very good, but it is quite some money for overseas. And I do understand the shipping position.

On the homepage it said that there were some downloadable PDF-files, I seem not being able to find them?

I know, I could probably hand-deliver the mags cheaper!
Right now, the PDF's are huge, over 90MB, and that's almost impossible to use as a medium to read or download online
I am working with some vendors to get an online reader going, like a virtual magazine
That would be available for foreign and overseas subscribers shortly after printing, and as back issues to U.S. readers two months after printing.

Make sure you guys yell at me to remind me of this in a couple of weeks
You know I only have three brain cells left, and I have to use them sparingly.......

PDF's should be able to come in a smaller size.

I would prefer PDF probably, so I can print them out and read them in a relaxing-chair. I don't know what it is, but reading at a screen isn't that interesting.

What would you estimate how much a online subscription would cost?

But I assume the magazine isn't available in stores in Europe?
