    Jan 16, 2008, 4:36 AM - Re: FP Armor - Version 3 #376



    Thanks a bunch guys

    I should have something to post of the gauntlets in about a week. Cutting it close to the wire on a deadline for these, but it was worth every hour (countless) spent. A LOT of VERY subtle, lesser noticed details added, as well some refinements/adjustments ... and above all, a new shell attachment method. Oh, and some ESB flamethrower surprises

    K, so .... a small UPDATE :

    Please don't be concerned, not too much more of a delay with things (that includes armor), but I just wanted to share, and rant for a second





    This is the "ambient" temp, in case there is anyone unclear as to how these bank thermos work ... and even though they can be "off" a bit ... their not "off" that much ! With the wind shill, it's probably -25

    So, some of you won't bat an eye at this ... <cough, cough - Canada/Minnesota> HOWEVER - I'M STILL ON THE WEST COAST DAG DAB_IT !!!! This sooooooooooooooooooo ain't right This is definitely the worst winter in Southern Oregon in 20 years at least, confirmed. We were just starting to recover from the last couple of feet of snow that pummeled us in 2 days flat !

    It's not just the cold (I have a VERY heated shop), but more so the moisture. I have to consider buying a de-humidifier. I may just run and get one today, but it takes 24 hours for it to pull the moisture out of the air well enough. The moisture affects how the chemicals react, and catalyze.

    Needless to say ... I'm delayed. So baaaaaaaare with me ( or should I SAY .... BRRRRRRRRR wit me) I'm not going to get all religious, but, uh .... isn't REALLY FREAKY weather one of the signs of "The end of days" ? Are the seas going to start turning to blood now ? CAH-REEP-EEE

    Hi Everyone !


    UPDATE:

    The good news ! The rest of the armor for this run has started shipping ! When I finally say it, it goes fast as you all most likely know Sorry it took a little extra time getting there.

    I'll start posting confirmation/tracking on the page 1 list as they come in. Right now I've got a few that I'll post up here in a few. The rest might havet o go out at the same time on Tuesday, since the post closes at noon on Saturday where I live, and Monday is a holiday (cough) But for all intents and purposes, Run 1 of V.3 is officially complete as far as I'm concerned. It just hasn't caught up with you yet

    A big thanks to all who participated ! And many thanks for your kind words and comments !!!!

    The Second Run will officially commence on Tuesday, in fairness to those that haven't shipped on Run #1 yet. Once the last box has shipped, I'll start the second list if there is enough interest. So if anyone wants in, now might be the time to start thinking about it, because this one is going to have to go fast due to time constraints on my end with project deadlines.

    I can't wait to see details about the ESB gauntlets! I love how you're putting so much detail into the ESB set where often they would be ignored for the more popular ROTJ set.

    Yay! I'm glad this run is finished, I can't wait to get it. Although I'm still not listed on the page one list...should be the last one at #30. I also still need to send you payment for shipping, so if you can let me know how much that will be I'll fire that off to you as well.

    Hey FP,

    I shot you a PM the other day. Wanted to make sure you got it. Also if there is room on your list you have another buyer.

    Thanks,
