    Ok, continued update on my end.

    Rolling along well again now, new molds +moving back into the "big" shop are all done.

    I expect to have all but the most recent orders shipped before I leave for Wfest.

    I will address the update package after Wfest as well. In short, it's much easier for me to ship everyones kit sans those parts, and then send out the few bits to everyone. That way i don't need to keep track of who needs it, because everyone will.

    Again, these are just a few odds and ends, you will have plenty of work in front of you before you need those parts, you could even finish the kit and add these last little bits on.

    Things should be much more manageable for me as well after Wfest. Between this, and other projects for Wfest, I have been a bit overwhelmed with almost every minute of my day accounted for. After Wfest I will be less busy, at least for a little bit.
    thanks

    I've spent the last several hours cleaning the small parts of this kit. The detail is incredible!

    I look forward to starting on this project...

    Ok another quick update. If the schedule holds I should only have like 3 or 4 kits to do after Wfest, then i will be caught up for this first time in a few months.

    Right after I get back from WF I will get those last kits out and get started on the update packages. It should go quick. I am going to make some gang molds so i can pour like 3 or 4 sets a day.

    Once that is done, I will be doing a very short run of the Tyderium Shuttle with some improved parts. I will also be doing a build for a customer and will document it here.

    I will also be opening up the SS snowspeeder again for Steve, made some new molds last fall and I have only poured a few kits out of them.

    Hi guys,

    just wanted to check in with you about flashing removal. It seems I will have to reintroduce the grid lines at the front of the cockpit after I have sanded down the extra flash. A scalpel should do the trick? Also what filler would you recommend for the seam after the top and bottom section of the cockpit are joined?

    Cheers.
