Ok since the old thread got deleted due to inactivity and it getting buried past the 9 pages of the Cargo hold, i decided to post a fresh thread specifically for this.

I know that these have been severely backlogged, and i apologize for that. Between my divorce, COVID, and me having to move slowly over the course of a month, things have been a mess this year. It was never my intention to let this get this far backlogged. I was trying to keep cahs coming in all this time (this is my only income) while trying to fill backlogged orders at the same time. All other backlogged orders have been filled and now as far as backlog is concerned these are the last of them.

In the future i will no longer do runs of kits or completes, but will take orders as im contacted on a limited basis as to not create further backlog in the future

I will be getting my painting supplies to the new place Sunday November 1st, and will continue on with the first 2 on the list.

Now, all that said, this is the list i have:

1 - Wookie - ROTJ SE - SHIPPED
2 - Minafett - ROTJ - Base paint complete-weathering in progress (estimated ship date 3-23/24 -21)
3 - CHIPS - ESB
4 - Malc - ESB
5- Shteymetal247 - ROTJ
6 - Soa - ESB
7 - Bobafett007 - ESB

If you see any discrepancy with your order, or you are missing form the list, let me know ASAP!

I will post updates here once every week or 2.

Weather has been slowing me down a bit, but these are slowly moving forward..first 2 are in progress..finishing up getting em all assembled and prepped..paint will be going on shortly. Once i start the paint it usually only takes about a week to get the 2 at a time done, so shouldnt be much longer until the first 2 are done.

Prepping is just about done so I should be starting the painting next week. 2 at a time as per my usual. Once i have the paint going, 2 ROTJ takes me about 3-4 days...ESB 2-3 days. So things will move along quicker starting next week. That said, i have a feeling , due to the holidays, that i wont get them all done by the end of the year/month. But most should be done and whatever is left within january. We had a few super cold days that slowed me down, but im doing the best i can as quickly as i can without sacrificing quality, because im NOT sending you guys half assed work!

Hey Folks, just shooting over an update on these. The weather is making thisa process slower now that i dont have a proper shop at the moment, but progress is happening.

the first 2 packs on the list the main bodies are just about done and i'll be moving onto the rocket, thrusters, and caps/piano keys on Monday. So lord willing the weather holds out to be nice enough these 2 should be done by the end of next week or early the following week.

Most of the rest are ESB which takes me less time since i dont have to mask off sections for different colors. So im guessing these will all be done before the end of Febuary.

Woke up to lots 'o snow. Wont be able to get into the shop today, and looks like tomorrow. So there will be some delays until the windy snowy weather subsides. Should be Wed/Thursday

All thats left on the first 2 jetpacks is the rocket and weathering. So should be shipping next week. the plan was this week but the snow is now causing delays.

We have had a horrible past few weeks between the cold and the snow. It is once again snowing with a 6-8" possible accumulation. BUT...looks like next week is gonna be in the 40's so i should be able to get back to some sort of normal work schedule!

After a catastrophic failure with the first go of molds for the new parts, the second go was a success, and these will be included on all of these commissions.

Well February sucked! When it wasnt a blizzard it was 20 degrees or below. Not ideal for casting or painting!

BUT it seems the nicer weather is upon us...or at least nice enough that i can work...so these should start moving quicker now. first 2 on the list should be shipping within 2 weeks.
