Apologies and free stuff!

Recommended Posts

Hey all, it's been awhile. Last time I was here I was running a side business called Studio StarForge, selling some pilot sets for Hasegawa valks. Everything was going well until I got a very nasty communication from Lucasfilm lawyers due to a Star Wars model I was selling, and I basically had to close shop immediately - and I couldn't be seen to be doing ANY 'business'. 

I think a few of you were caught up in unfulfilled orders - all of which I believe I refunded.

Anyways, a long story short, a lot of life changes happened during that time as well, it was a perfect storm. I feel pretty bad for abandoning a few people. I was looking at my stock (which I still have some of) and although I don't want to start selling Macross stuff again, I do want to pay back the community which was so awesome to be a part of.

The first 10 people who message me on MacrossWorld will receive a free pilot set - 1/72 resin pilots designed to fit into the Hasegawa Valk kits. This is not a scam, those who remember me will recall my builds, I just want to fix a little of what has being weighing on my mind for some time. Just send me your postal address and I'll post here when 10 is full, no strings, nothing else, just a freebie for fellow modelling junkies. 

EDIT: OFFER IS NOW CLOSED, THANKS FOR YOUR MESSAGES!

I'd PM you, as I remember your work even from other forums, but I wouldn't want to take away from others who missed out on these way back when and/or want them more than I would.

Great to see you're doing well again!

Thanks, and thanks to all those that messaged me.

I think that's 10 done, so no more requests, and thank you for your interest. I'll be sending them out at the end of next week, probably take a couple of weeks to get to you via snail-mail (I'm not in USA).

Between now and last time I was on the forum, I have been doing a Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics) and building real-world robots and working on a low-orbit satellite which is now circling the planet a couple of times a day.  So I haven't had much time for modeling between Djykstra's Algorithm and orbital decay calculations... but I'm hoping to set aside a little time over the Christmas break, so who knows!
