First production model has landed, and gone!
Its been an exciting day, as the Caster has the Goliath Production line well underway he has sent me the very First Cast out of the moulds, I've taken a few photographs of this gorgeous piece of kit and then packaged it up.. it will go to 1 of you tomorrow morning.. the delivery has started!
This is the Model with no prep work - I've clipped it off the sprues to fit it in the photo booth and then wrapped each component carefully and boxed it up for dispatch.
The cast is very clean and will require only minimal prep work (as most resin models do) to go together. I will be posting this out tomorrow to 1 of you! It still needs the plough and hatch plate so those will follow but the rest of the Goliaths should start to flow over the next couple of weeks along with the rest of the KS.
The wee teeny cast run of 6-8mm stuff is almost complete, and as soon as the Tiny Goliaths and Containers are finished I'll dispatch them and put them up for sale. As I complete the dispatch on each of the larger models I'll get those out the door as well. At the moment, its looking like I should have everything (or certainly most of it) out throughout November.
So.. whats next? Well - tomorrow night I will be trying something of an experiment. I'll be launching a mini kick just for the STL files and hoping that this will generate enough extra funds to put a real polish on the Sci Fi Cars Kickstarter early next year! We are talking filght stands, flying cars, the works!
So, here are a couple of the Initial Sci Fi Cars that will be included in the STL Kickstarter;
The final bus has a little more detailing, this is a WIP but the master model for this is so big that it will have to be printed in chunks!
The Happy Burger Van's interior is fully sculpted including Fryers, Sink, Hotplate and.. of course.. the Happy Burger AI Robochef!
Our Sculptor does love his Tuktuks!
Whilst all of the above will be included in the Basic (and only) Pledge level of 10 Renders, we have a few very cool stretch goals - I wonder if you can tell our inspiration for this stretch Goal!
So, if you haven't yet downloaded the STL files from the last KS - message me again, as I have them all ready to out again, and our Sculptor will be back from holiday shortly to make a few alts. to the 3d renders of the BIG Vehicles to make them a little more friendly to a larger range of Printers, then onto the Sci FI Cars!
The Initial Pledge will be for 10 cars, but we have a few more ideas for if the Mini Kick keeps going!
Until then, thank you once again to all of our Backers - those trucks will soon be rolling on tables across the World!
