  1. You forgot all the Moscato Hobby kits.
  2. Minimum order threshold achieved: the King Crab will rise again!! I'll open the payment window next week when I begin mold-prep. It's the vacation season so I'll take things slower this time around.
  3. Loving your build progress, Ted. You guys really make me proud when you take my kits to the next level!
  4. Depends on ambient conditions. I personally won't keep an opened silicone kit more than 6 months in ideal conditions. Ted: the first rule of being a good model-maker is to break the rules!
  5. Great work on the Zeta, Ted! Did you use the specified color-calls, or did you improvise? Back in the early 90s I had contemplated taking all three 1/72 non-variable kits and trying to kitbash them into a proper variable. As you can see with the fighter, they really cheated on the highly-compacted chest module to keep it all very tidy.
  6. Duuude!! Why are you taking a pic when you should be putting a compress on that-- stat! Hope it doesn't need stitches... And FYI, I never require blood sacrifices: simple payment will suffice.
  7. 5 orders already!
  8. I'm baaaaack! And this time I plan to reissue the King Crab (Gosu doppleganger) kit, with your help. This is the biggest and most elaborate of all the Inbit kits in my line, a true King Crab! Just as with the original, it will have a translucent eye and canopy part as well as a detailed cockpit ready to accept aftermarket pilot figues (not included this time). Just like the Pinky, the kit is free-pose. Price would be $300 CAD (about $233 US)+ shipping with up-front payment required and I'd need a minimum of 10 orders to get the ball rolling on the project. Shipping prices are as follows: -$26 CAD per kit shipped in Canada or the US -$48 CAD per kit shipped internationally. Any takers?
  9. It's a mixed-bag: the Gosu had to be upscaled by virtue of the fact that it too has to house a human-sized pilot, so it's very close to the height of a Legioss--as it should be. The other crabs are a little larger than spec, but just marginally. If you look at the "Crab family" pics earlier in the thread, you can see how they al relate to each other.
  10. From me it isn't. You'd have to talk to Exo.
  11. Good news, everyone!! The Mini-Me's have arrived and I've begun shipping! A huge thanks to Neptunesurvey and Exo for their contributions to the Space Crab revival! I've included a couple images of the Blowsperior figures, which are simply gorgeous! I also took a comparison pic with my 1/48 Legioss cockpit to show what a properly scaled mecha/figure looks like. Also, I will launch the King Crabb revival project on Monday. I understand that some of you who are new to my kits will want to wait and evaluate my work on the Pinky before investing further, which is very sensible. Not to worry, I will leave the order window open a little bit longer this time around. On that note, I'd like to wish you all an excellent weekend.
  12. I do my own graphic design work and use a local printer.
