    Any idea on a rough price yet. I'm interested if spots are still available.

    won't know a set price till materials come in and a prototype is made.

    I can add you to the list, not sure how many will be done though.

    I don't have any to hand but I can take some at work tomorrow, I use it a lot in the components that my company produces, all of which are aircraft parts and so the material has to be spot on, I can tell you that it does polish up very nice and shiny though Alex

    Edit - Just pulled this image off google, this is how it looks, although with proper speeds and feed-rates of tools you can get a very clean shiny finish

    Nice Joe!!.. I like the look of it, but in that picture it still looks kinda "brassy", if that's even a word...is that the bronze or the brass version?

    I'm really new at all this, and I've learned waaay to much about Copper, Copper Alloy, Electroplating..etc etc...
    I was even told by my Machinest that pure copper doesn't corrode if you put a sealer or lacquer on it, or even some simple standard trade finishing techniques would help with corrosion...

    Heck I'm just glad there're a ton of options to choose from for this project.

    And the Copper Alloy came in yesterday, so hopefully we'll be able to show a proto-type soon.

    Re: FP Aluminum (Copper tip) Gauntlet Rocket

    So when is the Jango sized missile coming? Actually there probably wouldn't be huge interest in all metal Jango rockets, but a resin one would be fine

    Hi Everyone

    I have an update for those interested. The final pricing has been calculated.

    Each missile will be $225 shipped in the lower 48. Hawaii, Canada, and Alaska will be an additional $5.00. Overseas will be an additional $10.00.

    Approximately 20 prototypes were started today and they look amazing ! The machinist is waiting for the rest of the aluminum to arrive, but this is going to happen fast.

    And just for FYI sake, our very own Spideyfett is machining most of these pieces for you guys

    MOre information will be posted this evening or tomorrow.
