So in short, anyone who purchased a kit should get a resin upgrade kit of 2 new domes, 8 launch tube upgrades (cut out the old) 2 rear landing bay detail caps (not the whole cap, just the detail bit at the end) and a new nose. As soon as possible i will send these out to everyone at no additional cost.
Thanks
mike
Just received all of the above in the mail today :b

Thank You Mike!

The nose is Tony's nose in resin, i compensated him for the part. Small dome, the 8 launch tubes, and the new endcap were handmade by Dan Grumeretz, and cast with his OK. The main dome is byNwerke (martyn) and casting of his 3d printed part.

Over all not a ton of stuff but an improvement for sure.

Awesome. The only parts I would need would be the new endcaps and launch tubes since I have all of Tony's other parts. Just FYI when my name rolls around. How many Galactica's did you wind up making? Seems like it was a good run while it lasted!!!!!

Don't know off hand, I was glad to do it but to be honest, it was one hell of an expensive project! Constant remolds and lots of resin, and major mold reset time (so lots of labor), which is why I have to take a break from it now. I need to really think about raising the price (unfortunately) to be worth doing again.

Again i really appreciate all you guys who wanted the kit, so the above is not meant to be complaining, just the reality of the project at this point.

thanks
mike

Thanks Mike, Glad to have been one of the lucky people to have gotten one of these super kits, and keep me in mind I will be wanting more of the models you make, also its worth every cent you have been asking even more after the fact of having to remold all the time molding stuff doesn't come cheep. also all the labor involved. I can't wait to own more of your kits. Hopefully soon the big 31 inch viper. Keep Up the Great Work And THANKS again......Jim

It's been a long production run for sure. Going back thru this great thread Mike started taking orders mid October 2013!! This kit has been in production for what, about 20 months!?!? That's a lot of resin and silicone. Plus we have had all the great extras that have been made for it from people like Tony, Dan and Nwerke and myself. While this may not reach the iconic level of Mike's SS X-Wing, it surely can't be far behind. It's a great model of a great ship, sold at a far lower price than it should ever have been. I remember Mike saying he wanted to keep the price at a point where anyone who wanted one would be able to get one. And he did!

Hats off and a big cheers to Mike for this awesome model!!!
