In Topic: v2 1/72nd scale Monstar.

Bodies and arms are in production out of the rotocaster now.  The body even rotocast is still almost 2lbs of material,  it's partially foam filled for rigidity.

 

I only have 3 or 4 molds left to do,  so this thing is just about done and ready for full production.

 

I will PM everyone on the list soon,  but in the meantime anyone on the payment plan can feel free to send payment for the arm installment.

 

Should be in full swing by the end of the month if not sooner.

 

thanks

Even building the mold box as close to the pattern as is safe,  this is a massive mold,  more expensive than i care to think about.   that is a full size spray can in there.

 

Almost 100% done on the pattern,  art for the decals is being worked on by my buddy Jason Eaton and will be sent off to JT as soon as i can.

 

thanks

as far as the main scratchbuilding,  yep pretty much done,  just tweaks and little bits on stuff.  I hope to have all the molds up in about a week and a half.  In the meantime i have been casting leg and arm parts every chance i get.

thanks

Other than a few stray scratches that need fixing,  main body is ready for molds.   That has been a long time coming and right now (assuming the mold comes out ok) is a big relief to have finshed.

thanks

Stress test looks good!

 

I have about 80% of the weight on it and it looks pretty darn solid.  I will likely start a for sale thread over the weekend.

 

thanks
