Time for a steamy edition of iMech news! In this episode, we update you on Friday’s Steampunk preorders, show off Christophe Desse’s L’Estafette roadster, and finally show the Orb Ship I’ve been working on as well as put the 2nd Edition up for Preorders!
Fish-Fry Friday »
First up, the new fish sub, Prof. FichtenFoo’s Implausible Long-Nose Submersible goes up for preorder on Friday March 1, 2013 along with Christophe Desse’s Submariners and the Skipper. All three of these Steampunk-styled kits are in 1/35 scale. All three will be shipping in Early April at the latest. The Skipper is the long awaited pilot for the original Fantastical Fish-Shaped Submersible (which is in stock now) and comes with a new seat and control sticks. Will be great for ships, balloons, etc!

L’Estafette Renders »
Christophe Desse has posted some fantastic renders of his upcoming 1/35 scale L’Estafette. I love these because they look like finished plastic figures. Cool stuff coming in May 2013!
FichtenFoo’s Orb Ship Build-up »
I finished up my Orb Ship build-up last week after putting it aside for several months while working on other masters and product launches. It’s a really fun build and if you haven’t had a chance to get one, you can preorder the next edition on Friday. Here’s the pics of my build-up and more detailed info/tutorials on the build can be found on my blog at FichtenFoo.com.

The Scott Robertson 1/48 scale Orb Ship‘s 2nd Edition will be available for PREorder on Friday 3.1.2013 as well. This very large ship is $155 + Shipping.
