Where is everyone that were looking for full panels last week? Jump on this before going back to a waiting list!
Thanks ST. And thanks AnakinSkywalker. Much appreciated.
If anyone is on the fence on getting one don't be. I have one and they are great.
These are awesome. The full front cast will definitely make for an easier build. I'm impatient, so waiting for layers upon layers of wood glue to dry was excruciating.
I agree Darth, but I always suggest the han pieces to someone just starting, because theres a lot of work to get them to lay perfectly and glue down perfectly. But when done right, are great.
The one in your avatar looks great.
I must post my satisfaction with Stormrider's work also! Like DarthYuengel, I ordered a full front cast and it looks AWESOME!!!! It was very easy to work with and the final result has far exceeded my expectations. I will attempt to post some pics here soon, I have to take them with a better camera than my old phone...
Just paypal'd ya! Count me in!
I want one. Let me know if you still have one available.
Naz, check out the post in the cargo hold. There are three available so act fast!
Cleaning the mold today, hoping rubber will be in soon. Supplier was still waiting for one of the raw materials to make my rubber. Ill keep everyone posted.
Just to be clear. The images you posted show Solo without the boarder. I know some have the boarder included in mold. So am I correct that the boarder/frame is not included?
Citizen - see stormriders reply to a similar question in the cargo hold. The mold doesn't include the border.
No problem. If you're looking to build a box, check out the kits zenix sells. I'm finishing mine now before Stormriders cast arrives. I've been very happy with it - easy to build and good construction!
When you say kits. Do you mean side panels? Im having difficulty finding them. I kinda would like all the parts by mid January.
Did a search on Zenix. His 1/2" MDF panels are beautiful, but I plan on cutting out my own. There are so many great blue prints online here. You can easly have kinko's print them out to scale and trace them out. Atleast thats my theory. Lol
I hear ya. I wanted the path of least resistance with my carpentry skills, hahaha.... Darth Chromer should be starting a run of side panels soon, so keep your eyes open on this forum.
I'm about five thousand miles away from my workshop at the moment and the only tool I can use right now is my Visa card.
Here here citizen!
The rubber as far as I can know is en-route to me, or leaving Monday morning. Which means by the end of the week I will have pulled the first pull. I cant wait to get these off my plate!
Any questions about your orders or build infto pm me.
No pressure there Stormrider. I'd rather you take pleasure in your work and keep doing it for others to enjoy. Otherwise you would stress out and never doing it again.
Thanks for the updates. It's very professional of you to do so.
Rubber is here tomorrow eve or sat morning. Pulls will start coming out immediately.
Im also making a mold for my Volvo control panel right now as we speak. Ill post some updates.
Is this of interest to anyone?
I need to know what is a reasonable price for all 8 of the panels.
Beautiful. I believe DarthChromer was charging around $650 for his panels and greebles. Maybe $400? $50 each?
As always nice work!
400 for just the panels
Christmas came early for all of us looking for these panels. Stormrider is offering these for a steal - check the cargo hold....
Im trying to get these as cheap as possible. I am pouring 8 today, and then I will see how much material it uses. and then I will know for sure the price. Sub 300, Hoping closer to 2.
Ok now your just showing off. LOL Seriously though awesome work.
Hope to get all your creations by mid January.
The most important thing I am doing right now is testing sellbuddy. The most help anyone could be for me, is to use their sellbuddy accounts (free) to sell their stuff in the cargo hold (again free).
It will stay free as long as people are only selling one listing at a time, but I need to get testers using it, buying AND selling.
As soon as I get some free time to catalog and take pictures I will use sellbuddy to sell some of my extra stuff. I seem to be buying stuff faster than I can get it worked up. I am upgrading stuff before I even get my Fett completed and have a lot of doubles.
That happens vultana, and thanks.
Just curious. What is the length and width (In inches please) of an actual Volvo panel? Width without the two screw tabs if possible.
Umm, ill have to check and get back to you. It in a box for moving. The rest were shipped.
Regarding the volvo panel
I just measured the base. 4 1/4 width by 12 7/8
If measuring from the edge top edge that flares out a bit it's more like 4 1/2 by 13 1/2 ( not including tabs )
And while I have the tape in my hand, height is 2 1/2
For those that do not know. IconicProps is helping me with shipping and communication. She will be helping to coordinate orders, and doing the updates. As well as taking care of coordinating the smaller runs going on (greeble kits, etc).
She was instrumental in helping me get things done before surgery and will be very active moving forward.
Greeblies for the HIC or other projects? I'm still on the lookout for HIC greeblies. Hope the recovery is going well!
I dont have the acurate greebles for the HICS, just the control panels and fronts.
For those of you that are on the fence about a HIC from Stormrider, DON'T BE!! His cast is perfect and of the highest quality. I received mine a few weeks ago and it was exactly what I expected. Thanks Storm!
I hope the next run of these fronts will come soon. I want one really bad!!!!!!!!
I second that opinion. I'm dying to get a hold of one of these things so I can get to work making my own displayable HIC!
