Ya big tease!

Tom is a vey intelligent and fair minded guy.

I'm sure he would admit to the fact that there are more informed folks than he.

Viper Thruster Pics!!
Here it finally is! The much awaited thruster nozzles for this bird.
Actually after looking a t drawing plans after drawing plans, I arrived at this type, which I screwed up a few times, but is great now after learning what was causing me problems. I put it down many times before trying again, and this is cool.
I'll make three molds of this so that each is identical. Besides, I would'nt want to attempt that crap again.
She is ready to ship as soon as these molds are done and as soon as the pilot is complete, which I'm working on and will have pics today sometime.

Those thrusters nozzles look really cool.

The learning curve on this can only help you with your next project.

Well done!

Best,

Peter

Thank You Peter! And I appreciate the awesome Happy Birthday wish from you! But poor Terri, feels like she was forgotten. I think the Fleets forgot her birth day,
And yes, that helped me advance a little further in skill. The Raider size and design are being approved by Tom right now. Should have word from him in a day or so.

I was thinking that the thruster nozzles would have been a little bit bigger to take up all of the space where they are set. Other than that I like, but that just me.

Hi guys, any more news on the Desanto viper? It's been a few days and I'm going insane. I got the impression they were just about ready to ship- maybe in the next couple of weeks. She's looking better all the time! Cheers, Chris

NEW PILOT SCULPT PICS
NOT FINISHED!!
In other words, don't try to be too harse before he's complete.
But he's moving faster now. I'm going to do him full body in a standing pose, then cut him at the right spot so that he'll seat in the viper properly. BUT....he'll also be available to order extra to stand next to the viper. But I'm typing this now with a HUGE hole in my mouth where an enormous tooth used to be, and the laughing gas and codiene is still kicking!
But i'm here sculpting on him now.

Really looking forward to the future endeavors that we both know will thrill all the Galactica fans!
And, lets not let any cats outta the bag until we have the ideas finalized.
More on the pilot sculpt soon.
It reall looks cool, the photos are not clear enough on the helmet area.

Things seem to have slowed down and I guess people are dropping off.
I know you had the tooth thing, but people are fickle.
I'm still watching and waiting, I may be quiet but I'm still watching.

later, Barry.

I've got these images Jim.
The sculpt, thugh not finished and add to that not primed, your not visually catching the detail. But the helmet on my pilot is correct.
And thanks for keeping up Barry!

Hello Mike.

It's been a few days since we've seen any updates.
What's new with the viper, are you getting close to a ship date?
Not trying to hurry you along, just need some info.

later, Barry.

I posted some pics about the pilot sculpt, no one but my friend Rob said anything about it, so it's like I post, then you post in a response, then I respond, do you get how this works? And if I get NO responses, then I just don't respond much. So respond more, and I then in turn respond
