Sorry for the delay boys, payment sent.
any word, Gav? havent heard anything in awhile...
I got the PM but real life got in the way - hope Im not too late to pay?
Always one hey D... *cough* paints!
Off to the machines hop in about 10 mins to mill out the pistol grips that I have cast to date...
Things are happening, just pouring and pouring and pouring!
mckenic - Not to late, In fact there are quite a few that have not nor contacted Volker or I so If things don't move along then I'll have to bring some up from the back up list.
Thanks Mojo mate!
Woo Hoo - HUGE thanks to you and volkerc for doing this!
I know what you mean D... few more days and things will start to move.
Well as stated I went into the machine shop today and undertook the task of milling out the slot beneath the main ali body and drilling out the holes for trigger placement etc... this was all done by me in my time and I hope you like the extra attention to the kit.
(Ok small error I can't upload them - away to ask)
Sorry again Gav that I couldnt buy this now. I am swamped with alot of other things and although I wish I could afford this, I just cant....
Hey my birthday was like a month ago...
Hey no worries bruv, at least you've told me that you couldn't afford it at present? unlike some.
I agree that if you put yourself on the list, you at least owe it to mojo and volkerc to update them on your intentions. I know there are several of us on the standby list that are patiently waiting with paypal ready immediately. It's all about respecting your fellow brothers. IMO.
I also wanna say I am not trying to downgrade or badmouth anyone either. I just was expressing my opinion to respect our fellow TDHers.
"you will know the difference between the sides of the force, thru patience and being clam..." i was told that by an old friend, jedi master actually, and his words still ring in my head even after, oh, almost 30 years...well, a week, since i watched it again for like the 200th time ...that little puppets' words left such an impression...
I agree with Fettdad...set a time limit and keep bumpin' people up. I only say that because I am way down on the reserve list This really is a GREAT looking piece. Can't wait to get a shot at one!
By the way, is anyone going to replicate the holster?
If anyone has the means to upload small videos, could they PM?
There are 4 vids taken with my mobile phone so they are short! also 2 were filmed with the phone held at 90 degrees... But you get the idea of the work.
You are wasted in your current profession mate, Hollywood beckons....
Ah I'm just kidding and you know it
If/when you do another run of these i would be interested.
I'm on the waiting list, but I've got the funds ready if a slot opens up!
Just when I thought it was not humanly p[possible for Mojo to get ANY more awesome! Rock on! :thumbup :thumbup
Let it not be said, for one moment, that your amazing work is going unrecognized! Top notch!
Mojo, can you send me a PM regarding payment? For some reason, my PMs are not going through right now...is your box full?
Are any more of these available?
Pm sent lmk if u recived it..

Any more pics or updates? When is the personal delivery to JB? Very exciting!
Thank you guys again.
Payment sent thanks!!!!!!
The paypal is away!
How are the guns coming, Gav? Any idea on when they might start to go out?
But should have some nice pics by the weekend? thanks for all your patience...
Any new tantalizing pics to feed the frenzy Gav?
I have emailed th machinist today as I too am wanting too see these little beauties!
My long working hours do not allow me to just pop in when I finish so I asked if I could get an update and if he would take a few pics...
He has completed the first stages for the 5 Ali pieces and should complete the remainder very soon.
Sorry for the lack of pics...
THAT IT! Get the Pitchforks and torches!!!
Seriously man! Its all good! Life takes up a lot of our free time, no? Nice to hear updates in any form! I know I'm not alone in the sentiment that this will be TOTALLY worth the wait!!! :thumbup
Indeed! I agree, the end product is well worth the wait. Take all the time you need.
support that totally!! i know that Gav is busting his butt every chance he gets to get these works of art finished up and finalized for us...these are going to be outstanding!! thanks again, Gav, for doing these, and volkerc for allowing it to happen...
Just kidding, I know this is not one of the 18 to 24 month projects that I hear about over on the RPF. You guys are doing a great job. I am more interested in an ETA just so I know when I can let go of my MLC I am holding onto.
Ok... not very pretty as these are mobile phone pics taken by the machinist? but you get the idea!
These are all the Ali parts in 1st stage machining, 2nd stage is happening from Monay and looking to complete soon after that.
I've actually designed 2 additional parts to the kit at 'my cost' to ensure that it all screws together like the real thing!
As you can see from the pics there are 'ALLOT' of ali parts being made from the initial interest, and judging by the amount of people still wanting.... looks I'm gonna be left with a load too?
*pics for those that have asked* - Very sorry for the wait, but I hope you enjoy!

Hey, wait a minute, what are you guys doing, just cutting the ends off machined aluminum knee darts? Just kidding!!!
Thanks for the update Mojo, it's nice to see all pretty pieces that are being made for this kit...

Great work bro! You're doing great with this!!
totally awesome, Gav!! you truly are the master...
Mojo, quite simply... You RULE!!! :thumbup:thumbup
I have no doubt in my mind that there will be PLENTY of buyers for any "leftover" kits you have! Anyone from the initial list that has not at THIS point paid, or at the VERY least made arrangements with you, should be bumped to standby. I think all will agree you have been way more than generous and understanding, but it shouldn't be at your expense!
I am totally interested and willing to Paypal if I can get on the list.
I would be interested if a slot opens up.
If the waiting list eventually processes up to me, I'm still definitely in for one, and if you run through the list, I'd probably be able to take a second off your hands if you (somehow) can't sell your remaining supply.
Bloody fantastic, Gav!
See Mojo! Anyone not putting up for their commitment, there are plenty of takers!
mojo has sent some pics he asked me to post for him. the aluminum parts are 95 % complete and he will tackle the ali tube next.

Shiny!! Nice work Gav!
Oh wow. . . lots of aluminum-y goodness right there!
Will this kit need instructions?? If it has more than 3 parts I get confused.
These kits will be very easy to put together... a full build up will be posted.
Please bear with me on this and I ask for a little time my wife and I have just suffered a personal loss.
Last edited by Mojo-Fett; Mar 17, 2009 at 2:18 AM.
Take what you need Master, my positive thoughts are with you in you time of loss.
sorry to hear that Mojo-Fett hope everything gets better for you and everyone heals from this event strongly and quickly. Don't mourn for a loss, but praise for a memory.
Sorry to hear that, Mojo. Wishing you and your family strength and consolation.
Sorry to hear times are rough. Take your time, you and yours come first.
My heartfelt sympathy goes to you Mojo. You and your family come before toys! We're here for you man.
thanks guys.. and you SF I know you know...
Family First bro. Take care
Sorry to hear that Mojo, take care and I hope things improve for you quickly.
family first brother...our thoughts and prayers are with you...
Thoughts are with you and your family...
Real life comes first, always.
My wife and I thank you for your well wishes... means allot!
Altho I really need to throw myself back into these and finish up the main bodies which I should have back from the machinist later this week... so some pics will be up soon and I *should* start to get these out to you very patient peeps...
thanks for the update, brother! you know we are all on your side, and our patience is totally going to be worth it once you get these bad boys out to us... hope all is well...
Looks fantastic! I would like to get on the wait list if possible. I have funds ready if a slot opens up.
Sorry for your loss Bro! keep your head up.
If there's another run of these in the future please put me on the waiting list.
Very sorry to hear about your loss, bro! Take all the time you need!
Sorry to hear about your loss brother Mojo.
Can't thank you enough guys! this family I call my second home is awesome!!!
well... personal circumstances aside, I have forced myself back into this and have the following to offer...
All Ali pieces are made/turned but the main body parts are yet to be (formed) sorry on that delay?
What I have done is to label some pics with some kind of assembly process...
(If it does not make sense please feel free to contact me @ firstname.lastname@example.org and I will answer any questions you may have?
more to come... sorry for the delay? but the first batch will be out very soon!
And for those that have not paid in the 45... the costs are going up due to the initial interest numbers as I have been left with a big machinist cost...
