DVH/Darth Voorhees UPDATES 2019

Ok i figured id post a fresh update thread for this year. Currently i am NOT making any parts except the rubber chin cup. Anything that was ordered from me has already been cast and just painting is to be done.

As far as my health, my eye issue (central serous chorioretinopathy) is still going on. The doc said it could take a few months to clear up so although i can still work, painting with stencils and super-detail is near impossible. I only use stencils for the helmets so thats the main thing that is affected right now. Everything else i can manage pretty well.

Im sure whoever is waiting on stuff from me would want to know where i am at with everything, so
here are the Paint commissions i have left on my list as of January 2019.

ROTJ jumpsuit weathering for Jaycepticon (complete)
ESB Armor/Gauntlets/Jetpack for skaalaluke (in Progress)
ESB Jetpck/Gauntlets for gustavohm (in progress)
ROTJ jetpack/Armor/boots for Pmanino (shooting for late Jan early Feb completion)
ROTJ jetpack for Wellroundedbill (shooting for late Jan early Feb completion)
ROTJ SE jetpack for Sumnaa Fett (shooting for late Jan early Feb completion)
ROTJ Shintools/Gauntlets for MythicalFett (shooting for Feb completion)
ROTJ gauntlets for OrlandoFan (shooting for March completion)

I also have 3 helmets which are currently on hold due to my eye having to heal before i can see properly to do the stenciling. Once i can see properly, i will continue on these. Im hoping by feb/March i will be able to do this.
ESB helmet for Erik D
ESB helmet for Thaddius
ESB helmet with only back panels painted for Evan R

This is all i have in cue for this year. I will consider taking another commission for May 2019 completion if anyone has anything they want/need painted that is not a helmet.

I am shooting to get my vac forming table done either this month or Feb. I ran into an issue getting someone to do the basic frame welding. Once i get that sorted, everything with that can move forward. I have everything in hand except a couple of electronic components and some small plumbing parts. Hopefully that will be done soon. For now, no Fett stuff is planned, but i will be doing bikerscout stuff first, and have other SW and non-SW items in the works.

Thats it for this update, if you have any questions about your orders please PM me rather than posting here. Your order info is between you and myself only.

Thank you all for your continued support and patience!
Have a safe and happy 2019!

Hey all, just posting another update!

As far as my health, my eye issue (central serous chorioretinopathy) is still going on, but it has been slowly getting better. The doc said it could take a few months to clear up so although i can still work, painting with stencils and super-detail is difficult and a bit straining. I only use stencils for the helmets so thats the main thing that is affected right now. Everything else i can manage.

Im sure whoever is waiting on stuff from me would want to know where i am at with everything, so
here are the Paint commissions i have left on my list as of March 2019.

ROTJ jetpack/Armor/boots for Pmanino (IN PROGRESS)
ROTJ jetpack for Wellroundedbill (IN PROGRESS)
ROTJ SE jetpack for Sumnaa Fett (IN PROGRESS)
ROTJ Shintools/Gauntlets for MythicalFett (IN PROGRESS)
ROTJ gauntlets for OrlandoFan (IN PROGRESS - shooting for late March completion)

I have already started Mythicalfett's shin tools and am going to be prepping his gauntlets for assembly this week. Im going to try and get OrlandoFan's gaunts ready at the same time since they are both ROTJ, and try to do em at the same time.

I also have 3 helmets which were on hold last update due to my eye having to heal before i can see properly to do the stenciling.Althugh my eye is getting better, it is still difficult to do the stenciling. However i am trying to do small sections at a time. its taking longer, but at least i can say i am moving forwarrd on these. They are for:
ESB helmet for Erik D
ESB helmet for Thaddius
ESB helmet with only back panels painted for Evan R

As far as the current Jetpack run..im currently in the mold making process and should be starting kits before the end of the month. The painted ones will of course take a bit longer.

I will post another update before Celebration. Still not 100% sure we are going, but if we do go, i hope to see some of you there!

No problem fellas!

I did get to start on OrlandoFan 's gauntlets as well so i should be able to have his and MythicalFett 's stuff done and out by the end of next week.

the ROTJ packs i have the white, red, and yellow down on the main body of them. I should have the main bodies done by the weeks end and then next week i should be able to finish up the thrusters and rocket parts.

Once this stuff is done, my backlog is gone aside from the helmets...and i will finish up the new molds and get started casting the packs for the current run.

Thanks again for your patience and support. This past year was really rough for me for multiple reasons. Im hoping this year will just get better and better!

Ok folks...i have now started work on the jetpacks, and the remaining helmets.

Current helmets im working on are for Thaddius and Erik..i will also be doing the back panels for Evan on his helmet when i do the back panels of the other 2 :)

This is the order the jetpacks are being done...

The first one i am doing will be a new main body master for future molds..im almost done with this as of today.

I am doing the kits first, in order they were received as kits obviously take less time than completes..
1- Fixer KIT
2- Jim Bo KIT
3 -FunkyRed KIT- PENDING


I will then do the completes in order that they were recieved:
1- PManino ROTJ
2- MTDavis ESB
3- DStep ROTJ
4- Scimitar ESB
5- Lou Battanio Jango
6- Motor Trooper ESB - PAID(PARTIAL)
7 -Lidocaine ROTJ SE
8- B.kieffer SuperTrooper
9- Paul G ROTJ

i am NOT taking any more orders for completed jetpacks. Kits ONLY.

I am a little behind but should start shipping the jetpack kits this coming week. I need to make a mold for the piano keys and bottom vent..totally spaced on those, but that will only take a day or so to do that and cast the pieces for the kits.

I am currently working on the helmets for Eric and Thaddius as well and am on schedule for having them complete by months end.

the complete jetpacks will be done 2 at a time ..o first 2 on the list will be started the week of the 27th. and should be complete by mid june. then i will cast the next 2 then paint, and so on.

As far as the vac table goes, i was being held up looking for a welder to do some basic welding...so i decided that im tired of waiting for other people so i looked up some youtube videos for basic welding and im sure i can mange it just fine. I wanted to learn how to weld anyways. So i got a very simple welder (flux core MIG) to weld the few pieces together so i can move forward.

I also have a job interview at tomspinadesigns, so if that comes through, i will have less free time so it MAY slow down current orders a little bit..painting wise anyways. Its for a temp position that can potentially be a full time fabricator/artist position, so i got my fingers crossed for that!

Thats it for now! Have a great week hunters!
