Arm cannon pattern is detailed and done.  This part will be rotocast,  much easier for the modeler compared to the V1 with the split parts,  and hollow casting will make it easier for the arms to hold the part up.

thanks

I will likely just offer all three shipping and payment options,  I will post payment info soon.   I need just another day or so,  I made the decision to remold a couple of parts.  The issue was that on a couple of parts the rivets were too deep,  they were made from foam and even with the lightest touch the rivets were too deep, it was distracting.  I took the first castings of those parts and will re do the rivets today and remold tomorrow,  it will only be a delay of a couple of days.  These are the only parts i should have that issue with,  I made them before i was using renshape for stuff this size.

 

I actually just poured the first arm part mold so I am still being productive on this thru the delay.

thanks

So i am running into a quandary in regard to doing this in 3 installments.  The issue being  that for the first installment the packed weight is 8 pounds,  yep it's a lot of resin just for the legs!  The issue is that and 8 pound box going to say Germany,  is $60 in shipping.  The other 2 installments will be lighter but bigger boxes.  So the issue is that in 3 installments an out of USA shipping total will approach $150-$180.   However a 15 pound box,  which is my my estimated total shipping weight for a full kit,  would only be like $80.   So splitting it into 3 installments and shipping them in 3 boxes,  will add $100 to the total price for out of USA.

 

USA is not so bad but a bit of the same issue,  3 boxes will run about $75 in shipping but one big box will be only about $35.00

 

So before i start a payment thread there are a couple of options for you guys to think about.

 

Do you want 3 installments,  3 boxes with the added shipping cost.

 

Or 1 full kit payment when it's done,  then ship one big box,  saving on shipping.

 

Or option 3,  take payments for each installment, thus spreading out the payments,  but hold shipping until the whole kit is done.

 

In the #3 option i would be casting your parts as soon as i get payment, but holding them here for 1 big shipment.

 

I can also offer any of the 3 above options,  but if everyone prefers one over the other,  it may be easier to just have everyone on the same page.

 

Let me know what you guys think,.

thanks

In Topic: New from Hasegawa 1/48 Weapons and 1/72Gerwalk

The weapons set sure seems credible,  the Max and Millia 1/48 set set already has parts on it to join the 2 nukes together like in DYRL,  as opposed to 3 separate like TV.   Really hope the weapons are up soon,  I have a bunch of 1/48's that need them!
