Hi guys. I've got all the kits cast and bagged, just waiting on the boxes which are late (what a surprise!) Hopefully I'll get those this week so that I can begin shipping.

Yes! Here comes my B'day present!

I'm tasking a trip down to Mexico for 2 weeks, I am really going to enjoy coming home to this kit.

Shipping delays happen all the time. No worries Captn. We all appreciate all the work you put into it. The research is the hardest.

So I found Model Master Plum Crazy in a spray can, so I bought a can to try....first off...I suck at spray paint...I hate it...but I wanted to see if the color was gonna work for the kits. It doesn't say it's a pearl like gloss paint, but it is....unfortunately. The color itself is good I think, but the pearl element is going to render it not usable for the kits. Kinda hard to tell from iPad pics, but in the sun, it's crazy Mopar 70's Dodge pearl purple! Guess I'll have to order some Tamiya purple and try that.

Hello Captain

Well now after this project is done I just imagined you doing the scene of the old Superbowl Commercial, a camera crew comes up to you right after the last box is out the door and you are asked what are you going to do now and you say "I going to Disney World" !!!!

Have a Great One and I can't wait to see,what you are thinking on next!!!

Hello derex3592

If you have access to Citadel Paints there is a good selection of purple and violet colors to choose from. I was looking at the display at my local hobby shop yesterday and found some good possibilities. Here is a link to their color chart;

Good Luck!!!

they do have some good colors at least according to the chart..might try to see if I can find some. Around my town that is highly unlikely, as I have one small hobby shop and Hobby Lobby. Maybe online though. Thanks for the link.

Cap'n, you were saying before about how the Invid mecha doesn't really lend itself well to things like "joints" and "articulation" based on the lineart. Can you elaborate more on how you modified the designs from the paper to the kit to make such things possible?

Just got mine. I didn't know you could get crabs from cute pink boxes!! I thought dark alleys, cheap motels and alcohol were involved!! Guess I'll need that bumper sticker EXO mentioned.

Thanks Cap!

I want one!! :angry:

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten you! My molds are still good for maybe six or seven more kits, the only problem is that I'm literally out of resin. If I can get an extra 6 orders I'll be able to make it happen, so those of you who missed out, now's your chance to chime-in!

Cory: if it's okay with you, I'll save the answer to that question for part II of my audio interview with Boinger in about 3 weeks. I think it's worth going into detail on a question like that, but sooo much easier to do so verbally as opposed to typing.
