A picture is worth a thousand words....

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words.  If that is true, then here are a few thousand words for you...starting with "awesome".

Fafnir progress

Not a lot to say here other than this is the Fafnir at about 70% completion. The torso does not look intimidating without the big Heavy Gauss cannons attached, but that will come soon.  It stands 10" tall at its highest point.







 
Also, a long-time follower is selling some of his Robotech kits on eBay.  Some of these may work as Battletech mechs.  Check out Nate's auctions....

44,000

Wow!  If I read the stats right, we just recently broke the 44K unique page view mark.  That is incredible and very humbling.  Thanks to all who have been following me and my works.

The Vulture is going to the caster this week.  He has been swamped with work for Wonderfest and I did not want the masters just sitting in a workshop.  He still has not been able to provide me with a quote on this one so I am probably just going to pay for the castings out of pocket rather than do a pre-order.  Also, with the issues with the last two pre-orders I may shy away from them all together. He said he should be able to get it done by the end of June.


The Fafnir.  Man-oh-man...every time I fit the pieces together all I can think is, "I'ma firin my lazor, Bitches!"  Sorry for the bad language...its just funny that the B word is what pops into my head.  This thing is going to be awesome.  I should have some pics this weekend.

Also, I am going to post a quicky conversion of the Victor's arm to remove the hand and add a laser to make it more MW4-ish.

Victor

Well, I have to give it to JPG Productions...he came through in a huge way and got the replacement parts to me in record time.  All but one kit has gone out...I have to send one to the UK and overseas shipping is a pain in the arse...and expensive.  That one will go out later in the week.  Also, note that I have added a "Marketplace" page where I will be posting all the kits for sale. Here are some pics of a Victor I quickly assembled....no real touch-ups on this one...just CA glue.

Holding Pattern

I am still waiting on the replacement Victor parts, unfortunately Wonderfest is right around the corner so just about every caster, JPG included, are working full tilt.   As soon as they get here, the remaining kits will be shipped. 

When the Daishi was shipped to me by the caster, they put one complete kit in a bag and I trusted all was well.  Unfortunately, a lot of those kits were missing pieces.  To avoid that this time, I have personally packed every kit individually to avoid the missing parts issue.

So, what's going on now?  Still trying to get quotes on the Vulture. Yes, that will be the next kit.  The Fafnir is coming along quite nicely.  Maybe some pics will go up this week.
