    Before we hook after and order (me a used A3 scanner; you the magazines) are you sure the issues you're after are not already scanned? https://archive.org/search.php?query=Amiga+user+international&sort=-date https://archive.org/details/amigauserinternational http://kiwis.world/index.php/component/jdownloads/category/88-amiga-user-international

    Let's see how I get on with my Electric Brain rescan.

    I can find some of the issues I'm after on https://www.suruga-ya.jp - prices range from 950 to 1480 - but I wondered if there are other better options? Friends of mine are heading to Tokyo in a couple of weeks and I'd like to get the magazines delivered to their B&B address when they are there. Of course I can let this opportunity pass by and wait to play the Y! Auctions waiting game... Thoughts?

    I bought a FUJITSU ScanSnap S1300i on Shpock today for £20+delivery (I organised collect+ for £10) which I think is a pretty good price. So really I have a few options now. @Trickster do you know, or can you find out, the dimensions of an issue of Amiga User International? Then I can figure out logistics and make a proposal/commit to the scanning!

    Because we're British. That's the answer to so many questions.

    Ah, yes you're correct. My quick glance at the review excerpt shows that it's not the same as the one in the preview. Oops, sorry.

    Sure, the scans above where done on my HP flatbed scanner. I generally only do camera work when I'm doing pure OCR (ebooks)

    Seems to be issue 295? Please confirm my deduction using the information below. Here's the Famitsu page for Coca-Cola Kid: https://www.famitsu.com/cominy/?m=pc&a=page_h_title&title_id=16013 It shows an excerpt of the review which can be matched to the image in the twitter post. Issue 298 was 1994-09-02 https://yomuka.wordpress.com/tag/weekly-famitsu/ So issue 295 would have been on 1994-08-12 http://sayonarafamitsu.blog.fc2.com/blog-date-199408.html That is the week after Coca-Cola Kid was released. https://www.suruga-ya.jp/product/detail/ZNON8053 (none in stock)

    Sure thing, let me know where I can read about quality guidelines.

    Any scanners in the UK?

    I'm in the UK and am happy to scan. I also have an IPEVO Ziggi HD document camera that I use for certain things (mainly books I don't want to unbind) as it's got a timer mode that takes shots every 3 seconds as you turn pages which is often far easier than my flatbed.
