    Jan 23, 2009, 3:00 PM - 10 Webley Kits - Official Commitment List #1

    UPDATE: Pasted from below and updated the list of people as best I could.

    Ok here we go. This is un-orthodox. But Im Happy with the way these kits have come out. However I can already see a few things that could be better. That being said, im going to do something that goes against what I usually do. Im going to lower these kits a bit.

    Now, im doing this for two reasons.

    1: Theres a lot of kits out there, and times are tough I almost always give a price, and the final price is less. This time, I want to to be a better price.

    2: Ive cut my process way down, and cut the waste way down. Im getting far less 'useles pulls' than I thought. Im doinga bout 4/7 excelent 2/7 good 1/7 bad.

    Bads I chuck or see how they break when thrown or dropped.

    So that being said, for this run im going to do:
    Excelent pulls: 150 + shipping (roughly 10-20)
    Good pulls: 100 + shipping (roughly 10-20)

    Midwest is 10, rest is 20.

    Take off $20 for stocks.

    I have 3 excelents and a good here now. Im going to run all my plastic out this weekend, and see where im at.

    Right now, im going to hold off on rubber triggers, guards because they take 3 hrs to demold, instead of 30 minutes. And they get bubbles more than half the time.

    Ill do rubber barrels but they will be roughly $20 more. And rubber coated stocks with foam centers for $20 more.

    If you have any questions pm me. Im sorry for the un-orthodox of this run so far. But ive had to change process 10 times to get here.

    ----------------- ORIGINAL POST BEGINS HERE ----------------------
    Ok, im ready to pour 10 guns. These 10 guns will be cast in black resin (optional black rubber barrell), with rubber triggers and a black resin stock, hollow cast and filled with foam.

    The price of the gun is going to be $195 shipped in the US.

    If you dont want the stock and D-Bracket, $175 shipped.

    Parts break downs are as follows for those that need parts:

    Barrels are $75 shipped.
    Bronze cold cast grips $15 shipped.
    D-brackets $15 shipped.
    Stocks $40 shipped
    Gun body/barrell lock $40
    Trigger/Trigger guard/hammer: $10

    Broken replacements will be cheaper.

    I intend to do the two runs, pour as many rifles as I can from the plastic, and retire the project.

    The ESB greeble kits should get going this week.

    The ROTJ after that

    Im limiting this run to 10.

    The second time I do this run is going to be $240 shipped. This is because the time Im spending on some of the parts is 4x as much. Like rotocasting, drilling, foam filling of the stocks. Its almost as time consuming as to make a helmet. Just not as much resin. They will be 200 without the stocks.

    Ill be putting together 'seconds' as I make kits, of the parts with too many bubbles. Those kits will be $125 shipped.

    I expect those to be good barrels, good grips, decent everything else.

    The 'first' kits will have virtually no bubbles or outward blemishes, and will be ready to glue or drill and use.

    The 'seconds' will be close, but will have some cleanup/bubbles to fill. But still very clean casts, with minimal filling.

    The seconds will be sold as the un-perfect parts accumulate.

    I will not sell anything that I think is a 'bad' pull in this run. Only 'un-perfect'.

    First come, ready to buy only at this time. Unless I have discussed previosly in a PM.

    Ill post pics of of what to expect saturday evening once i get my back in town.

    One thing to note is there will be a few small bubbles here and there on 'away facing' surfaces. Inside the barrell, under the dplate where it attaches to the stock/grip. The butt of the pistol may have small bubbles. Similar to the rubber knees.

    Im going to do my best to keep all blemishes away from the visible surfaces.

    I dont want to risk venting some of these places yet. As venting them wrong could make the mold produce worse results. As the lack of vaccume may prevent the 'squish' from forcing the resin into the detail.

    I think that for 80% of the people, the finish on these as they come out of the mold will be a better finish than painting them. And you get the 'true webley metal' finish.

    Jan 24, 2009, 4:00 PM - Re: 10 Webley Kits - Official Commitment List #15

    I wanted to answer some of the questions im getting.

    1. The greeble kits will be seperate. Im waiting for the parts to get here this week. The scope ill be casting, other parts scratch building. ESB will be first. Im expecting the kits to be $40 ish if you bought a kit. Anyone that didnt buy a kit, they will be a little more. I cant give you an exact price, because while I know the amount of materials ill need. I dont know how much time the kits will take.

    2. I dont want ANY money until the item is ready to be shipped. I dont like holding money like that.

    3. Ill get some good pictures of a perfect pull tonight, post them in the morning.

    The last detail im trying to work out on these is how im going to do the 'sling connectors'.

    Can anyone tell me how those are usually handled (The eyelets on the botto of the grip and rear of stock).

    The holes there in the stock. On the pistol grip, its just a partial cast of it that can be drilled out. But making it from resin will not work.

    I may hit the stores tomorrow and look for something that will work properly and be acurate.

    Im not feeling well today. Im going to attempt to compile a list tomorrow while resins curing. Ill post a pic of both 'quality' of guns and point out the difference.

    Im excited to get these in ppls hands and find out what they think.

    Also, edit your posts and specify if you want a rubber barrell or not. I need to know how much more rubber to get. I have plenty of resin.

    I'd like a full ESB kit, since this is my first costume I'll settle for seconds.

    *Edit*

    I mean I'd like a first run but if they're all spoken for I'd gladly take a seconds set.

    Jan 26, 2009, 8:29 AM - Re: 10 Webley Kits - Official Commitment List #22

    Heres my plan.

    Im going to bring a nice camera home from work, because the Iphone camera is annoying me. Im going to lay all the firsts out, together (but not glued) and photo them. I have one complete 'second' that ive been letting the kids beat around with.

    Ill take pics of the guns, and show what _exactly_ to expect from a first, and where the blemishes are on the 'seconds'.

    I expect the blemished to be what you would normally expect bubble/blemish wise, except that theres still no real seam lins, they are gunmetal finish, and should still require no painting if you can handle the few bubbles.

    Thanks for your patience. I still havent found a stock solution im happy with, otherwise these could ship today.

    Definitely looking forward to seeing your final kit results stormrider!

    The primary thing im worried about is the few parting lines (Every mold has a parting line of some sort) will have to be sanded a bit.

    On the big parts, you really cant even see the part lines. The part lines are disturbing me on the trigger guard of all places.

    I need to get some wet sand paper, and sand the part line down, and see how it comes out compared to the guns finish. Im thinking that wet sand paper will be really close to gunmetal finish, but that in a nutshell (along with the PAIN IN THE BUTT stock) are the last catches.

    Im especially happy with the barrell and d-bracket. The dbracket took me 12 pulls to get a good one but now they are pretty easy to duplicate.

    The grips and barrell lock are unbelievable easy to reproduce.

    The gun body is easy to reproduce except for 2 places. The butt of the gun, where its not perfectly 'machined' looking and the tip where the barrell would attach. It gets a release line there. But all things considered, those are relaly insignificant.

    Im going to take pics of 4-5 pulled guns tonight. One with Spideys tube and scope laid next to it.

    They are rough trimmed but... well ill let you guys make a conclusion

    Two kits are shipping today. One to spidey and one to Fettdad.

    Im doing two pre-ships so I can get feedback before people commit. Ill make tweaks based on their assessments. I have a little 'good bad and ugly' pic to post to show what will need cleaning.

    Ill get it posted soon. I expect for them to have their guns in their hands by friday.
