Arguably, the photochopped image makes it look far stubbier than it really is. You'll see when the first test-shots are done and I can show it with all its parts.

In the meantime, buckler action!!

It's perfect. What I have a hard time believing is awe of how quickly you produce these masterpieces. Great work!

Love to have one. If there's any left, can I sent you paypal like the last Inbids I ordered?

It's like Christmas in August.

Thanks for addressing that. It was going to be my only concern, but great to know you already addressed it. Can't wait to see final shots This will be one of my favorites for certain.

Actually yes!! Thanks for reminding me, the molds are almost done and I already have test-shots and preliminary casting started. Castings came out beautifully :)

What's the difference between a test-shot and a casting?

Test-shot is the very first casting where you trouble-shoot, see if the vents and gates are sufficient, need to be enlarged or new vents added to prevent air pockets or decrease pour time. Also, the castings will be in a color other than gray for production :ph34r:

Have you ever made a test-shot and had to scrap a whole mould?

Very interesting question! Never a whole mould, but there have been rare occasions where a cavity within a mould will not yield acceptable castings and so a particular part will be set onto a different mould box with a corrected position to yield better castings. The frequency of these events has dwindled over time: lots of practice and experience has all but done away with these problems although there are some shapes which I sculpt that require more study in able to mould/cast properly.

Your crabs are big and plentiful. What do you feed them... :blink:

Any plans yet for an Iigaa (with booster pack) to complete the crab pack?

Nice.

What are the other ones with the boosters?

I'd be down for a few at least. :)

I would be interested in a few. Just like in the photo, I would need crabs with boosters, crabs with boosters and cannons, flying crabs with only cannons, plain ole crabs with no booster nor cannons.... :D

In the show and animation sheets, I think we only ever see the booster on Iiaga with no guns. Memory could be wrong on that...

And I'll put in another plea for the Protect Armor over the Iiaga.

Nice.

Most definitely! I don't know about the booster --too huge a hunk of resin, too heavy, add too much cost... unless, maybe, if it were hollow cast-- but a couple of Ligaa per set (scout and armed scout) would be cool.

Agreed. Don't need the booster. Just scout with canons. I'd be done for 2 or 3.

also, we'll need a 1/48 Protector... may be you can sell it together with the Ligaa? :rolleyes:

My vote is for Ligaa and Protector next -simultaneously- to cut down on shipping costs, and to include booster so you can make the Ligaa either way.

Cap usually goes all out on these and I can't see him not including the booster. He tends to do the ultimate versions.

I think most of us who ordered the other Inbits will get several of each of these - not just 1 like the Gosu and Gamo.

I might get up to 4 each of the Ligaa and Protector if they are affordable . . .

I also vote for the 1/48 protector and the Ligaa with the booster. I don't care if the kits come as one, but both would be nice to complete my collection.

Er, back on the topic at hand... I'll try to have some full-frontal King Crab pix up by Friday. Molds seem to be holding up well and should hit the half-way casting point by the end of the week. :ph34r:
