Still having trouble contacting Chris. I really don't know what to do from here: it already cost me a substantial bit up front to get him to work on the parts and now he's leaving me hanging...

What about Carl's suggestion a few posts back. The joints could be 3d printed???

Just don't give up Captain! We won't either. Been waiting for this for too long. Thanks.

The joints could be 3d printed???
My understanding is that the joints were to be 3D printed. So there must have been a model made at somepoint as I recall see printed parts. If anyone still has that model it should be a simple mater just to upload it to Shapeways. If no one has the model I could offer to try to reverse engineer a model from the printed parts. I'm far from the fastest 3D modeler but I think I should be able to pull that off.

Hey everyone, I have some great news!

I finally managed to contact Chris earlier tonight and touch base with him. As per what he told me, he's been having some personal issues to deal with, which is why he hasn't been on the forums. It seems that all the parts are done and about to be shipped, so with any luck I'll have the final parts in the next 2 weeks.

I'm curious too. If the only thing missing are a few joints and a canopy, and it's beenn a couple months, I'd almost rather have the model parts shipped to me now and consider paying extra to have the joints/canopies shipped to me seperately later. Every month that passes makes the random liklihood of a lightning strike/heart attack/alien abduction seem more likley to my paranoid brain :)

Spoke to Chris earlier this week. Seems that the parts have been shipped but somehow got lost in transit. There's a postal investigation goin on on his end and now we're waiting to see if the parcel can be found or if he'll need to make a new batch.

Gah... not good. I do hope they were shipped with tracking and insurance.

Can you just send us the resin, and ship the joints when they arrive? It's been 9 months since the last installment, and I need my fix! :lol:

Hi everyone.

My sincerest apologies for the long silence. I just got off the phone with Chris earlier, and the post office found the lost parts and they've been returned to him. I should be receiving them by the end of next week. A light at the end of the tunnel, finally!!!

Also, Silverdragon will be embarking on a project to make alternate heads for The Beast, as shown by his diagrams above.

Prayers have been answered. :hail:

I see I wasn't the only one praying! LoL

Whenever I hear stories about parcels lost in transit 98% of the time it's never good. Guess we all dodged a bullet on that one.

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to let you know that the canopies and composite joints have finally arrived safe and sound! You heard me right, this is not a joke! I'll begin packing all the parts during the upcoming week and begin shipping in due course. Before I do though, I would ask that those of you who have moved in the last year please PM me with your new info so that I don't end up sending the parts to an outdated address.

It seems that fate could not stop me from completing the Beast after all...

The WF Gosu is 1/48 as well I believe.

We need a better sculpt, opening cockpit with clear canopy, pilot fig - in say... 1/32 scale?
