Stuff

What a great, ambiguous title for a post, huh?  Stuff.  Could be anything.  

First...talked with the caster and I am not happy.  The Vulture MK IV I sent him mid-January is still not done.  In fact, he has still not molded some of the parts. I can't even begin to tell you how frustrated I am with that situation. 

Speaking of frustration...I am job hunting.  The career field I am in is dying on the vine. Unfortunately, I am a "jack-of-all-trades" and a master of none...surprisingly unmarketable around here. Very frustrating.

Second...I received the Centurion 3D print and I am more than happy with it.  It does have the lines and what-not inherent with 3D printing but not as bad as I have seen.  There is going to be some clean-up that has to be done and a few mods around joints, but I think this will make an awesome kit one day. 

Third...I have finished all I am going to do with Scott's Atlas.  There are some areas that will just be easier to clean when cast.  I had to mod a few pieces to make them casting friendly...fill gaps...touch up some details...I am just anal as hell and am never happy with anything it seems.  That one has gone to the caster and will be kitted when the caster gets caught up with all his other work. 

Fourth....for Destiny players....working on a 1:1 Ghost Generalist Shell. It will be hollow for lighting. 

Fifth...working on a 1:1000 scale UNSC Frigate from the Halo-verse from a 3D print.  It will be about 20" when done. Yay me!

Finally, two commissions going on,  I am making a Victor for one client...not a pricey build as I have some parts left over from when it was a kit.  The other is...wait for it...the Fafnir. My first build was never meant to be a kit...but this client wants me to make one that could be kitted.  Don't hold your breath, though.  Between the build and what-not, it would not see kit form until 2016...but it looks like it will happen.  

Let the commenting begin...
