Gauging Interest

How much interest is there in a updated Timberwolf mech?  The Armorcast version looks dated and the new MWO version looks too...beefy...

Price would be around $150

General Update

So, if you read through updates from years past, this is like a retread update. Son sick 2 weeks ago, wife in the hospital last week for 4 days, surgery for her this week then some recover time.  Not as much building as I would have liked. In fact, none until yesterday.

ShadowCat:  At the caster, but he has prioritized his stuff to take to Wonderfest the first weekend in June.  Hopefully, he can finish them ready-quick when he returns.

Other than that, not a lot going on.  I am working on an Archer and a Dragon both in the TRO style per customer requests.  They will still have a bit of my flair to make them cooler and more kit friendly. Will they become kits?  We will have to see.

Update

The Shadowcat pre-order is closed.  We did not hit 15 but as this is a commissioned kit I will cover the short fall.

Also, note that the Templars have started to ship out.  Build notes are posted.

Shadow Cat Commission is about finished

The last commission after the Templar was a Shadow Cat that incorporated some of the TRO look and some of the newer MWO look.  Here is what the customer ended up approving.  He is also allowing me to kit this mech and a pre-order will open as soon as the caster finishes the Templar. 

What else does that mean?  It means I am available for commission work!  I am open to doing anything from scratch builds to just building/detailing existing kits.  Just give me a shout at battlemechmodels@hotmail.com

Templar is off to the Caster!

The Templar has been sent to Timeslip Creations to be cast.  JPG Productions, who use to be my primary caster, is currently focusing on some LARGE projects and just cannot turn around any of my mech projects in a reasonable amount of time.  If you remember, the Nova Cat was supposed to be a 6 week turn around and ended up being around 9-10 weeks.  That is a long wait considering many of those that pre-order paid several weeks before it went to the caster.  So, hopefully I will be shipping Templars to you in about 5-6 weeks.

Templar pre-Order Closed

The Templar Pre-order is CLOSED. We only ended up with 9 paid pre-orders. I was preparing to drop refunds when my better half...much better half...offered to help out with the pre-orders Jessica Fusco "purchased" 6 mechs. This may sound odd, but when I started this I promised myself that I would NEVER take funds out of the "home" budget to support the business. Either it would be self-sufficient or it would stop. So, for those that DID pre-order, thank Jess.

Also, since we did not come close to the pre-order number the banner contest is off the table. Since it is such a small number of pre-ordered mechs, I guess I will just hit up my "The Printer" to do some plaques.
