Membership and resubs


In 2020 we just about managed to cover all our costs.  This year there has already been another increase in postage, and we are expecting other increases as well.  As a result, all of the MAFVA Committee have agreed that we need to increase subscription costs by £2 a year.  For UK and HM Forces members this works out at a new annual membership of £18.00, with the same increase for overseas members.  For that you will get six issues of Tankette, plus all of the other benefits of being a member, which comes out at just £3.00 for each issue of Tankette.  I am sure that you will agree that there are few if any magazines that you can get for less than £3.00.  For those of you with Standing Orders, can you please make sure that you update your instruction to your bank.  If you pay using the BACS system or on-line using PayPal, can you please make sure that you pay the new amount.

For current members the new rates will apply from your next renewal.

£18 – UK & HM Forces with BFPO no. (or £16 for digital Tankette only. No paper magazine)

£26 – Europe (including Eire) (or £16 for digital Tankette only. No paper magazine)

£35 – Rest of World (or £16 for digital Tankette only. No paper magazine)

Members can subscribe at the £16 rate if they choose to just receive just the digital version of Tankette instead of having a printed paper version mailed to them. This saves us considerable mailing costs and enables us to offer you all the other benefits of MAFVA membership at this cheaper rate. (The digital version of Tankette also has colour throughout and not just on the cover pages – assuming the photographs were in colour originally.)

Tankette – The MAFVA Magazine

We aim to provide our members with six issues per year of our magazine Tankette. It is a fully illustrated litho printed format and contains articles, photographs and drawings of tanks, self-propelled guns, half-tracks, armoured cars, trucks, artillery, uniforms, unit organisations, vehicles colour schemes and markings, kit conversions, histories, museums, scratchbuilding and modelling tips, as well as kit and book reviews. Each issue also contains several original multi-view scale plans, usually to 1:76 scale but also in larger scales. Each volume comprises six issues, with each volume starting January.
