*Update*

Hi everyone.

Just a quick update to let you know that Batch One is now complete, and I'm officially moving on to Batch Two!

Everyone in Batch One should have received their tracking numbers or a notification.

Here are some pictures of how the first batch turned out:

As always, I'll keep everyone up to date with how things are going.

Thanks for your patience everyone. It's been a lot to get though, and I need to make sure every one is up to the standard you'd expect.

Hope you like them anyway. The last few shouldn't be too far behind now. :)

All the best and MTFBWY,

Dave

*Update*

Hi Everyone. Just wanted to give an update on how things are going with batch number two....

Last week was all about getting the parts prepped and ready for painting. As with the previous batch, the parts needed some TLC to remove any tool marks and scratches, before they can be masked/stencilled.

Unlike the previous batch, I decided to get the boxes finished at this stage too, as well as getting the tri-rings made up, rather than working on those at the end.

The boxes also require a fair bit of TLC and I round the corners myself, so these took up a bit of time this past week too.

Having managed to get all the parts prepped last week (and over the weekend), I've been chemically aging the emitters today. Managed to get all of them done today, so tomorrow I can move on to masking/stencilling. (y)

Here they are freshly treated (before knocking back with the wire wool):

Looking forward to getting these stencilled up and ready for painting over the next couple of days.

Thanks for your patience everyone. As with the previous batch, each little job takes a while to get through due to there being a whole batch to get through, but it's certainly quicker than working on them one at a time.

As always, I'm getting through them as fast as I can, whilst maintaining the standards you've come to expect. :)

I'll keep you all posted as things progress.

All the best and MTFBWY-A

**Update**

Hi Everyone. Just a courtesy update to let everyone know where I'm up to on the commissions....

All eleven of this final batch have now been masked off and stencilled, ready for painting:

This is one of the more time consuming parts of the build, so things should move along quickly from here. (y)

Just so you're aware though, I will be out of action for a few days, as I have a long awaited/pre-planned camping trip booked this week. It would have been nice to get everything finished and sent out before it came around, but it wasn't to be unfortunately.

I will of course be straight back to it as soon as I'm back and, weather permitting, I'd like to get the painting done this coming weekend.

I'll keep everyone posted with another update soon.

Thanks for your patience everyone.

All the best and MTFBWY-A

*Update*

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to give you all an update on how the commissions are going....

I've been working flat out since getting back from my trip away on Friday, and I'm pleased to say that we had some pretty good painting weather over the weekend, so ALL the painting is finished. (y) I spent yesterday, and much of today removing stencils, and cleaning off any residue. I also made a start on sanding the rings and wire brushing the emitters (about halfway through those and may get a couple more done tonight).

Still to do:

  • Finish sanding rings/wire brushing emitters
  • Apply weathering powder to neck sections
  • Install Tri-Rings
  • Install Collars (Pre-Cut) on blades

It's looking like I should be able to get the remainder of the work finished by the end of the week! :) So, with that in mind, I'm aiming to get them in to Saturday morning's post (all going well). Monday Morning at the very latest. (y)

As always, thanks for your patience everyone. I'm getting through these as fast as the perfectionist in me will allow. :D

Anyway, here are some pictures from this week, so far:

are any of these banks still available?
Hey Danny. There aren't any kits available right now, but BobaDan had a finished one for sale.

I have the parts to put a few more together, but the bodies are from my first hero run, and need some work on them to get rid of some minor dings and scratches and to extend the depth of the emitter/tap the second set screw.

My hands are tied up with commissions just now, so it'll be a couple of week till I can get on to those.
