So, the Fleas are supposed to be finished up this week. Still not the 4 week turn around I was gunning for, but if it is the quality of the Vulture I can wait. There are about 4 Vultures left and after they are gone, they are gone. The large molds are not pulling decent casts and I am not paying for more molds. Once these are gone, the Vulture line will be closed.
I have been asked why I "close lines." Each run is 30-40 kits depending on how long the molds hold. Usually, those who want them will buy them in the first run. If I make another run (like I did with the Puma/Adder) I will end up with stock that takes a year or more to move. That is money that could gone into producing a different kit. So, once the first round of molds breaks down, the line closes.
Progress on other builds: NONE. My son brought home a Parvovirus from school a couple weeks ago. My wife and I have both contracted it. What does that mean? Well, in adults it manifests as joint pain...severe joint pain...and some fatigue that can last for weeks or even months. I can't hold a hobby knife, sanding stick, paint brush, etc. without my hands aching. I had Friday, Monday and Tuesday set a side to work kits/commissions but have gotten absolutely nothing done. Sorry about that.
BTW, any thoughts on the Avatar Omnimech?
