iMech News 9.30.2011

Hi everyone. It’s been a while since I’ve posted a proper update so figures I’d keep you all up-to date with our current happenings.

Ian McQue’s Remora

The Remora is with my caster at the moment. Not 100% sure when I’ll be getting the casts, but it may be at least a month. The Remora is a HUGE kit with a lot of parts so please be patient. Ian is diligently working on an all-new painting to be used for the box-art and instructions cover. The box-art and instructions are almost finished, they just need Ian’s finalized painting. (which I’ve seen progress of… it’s amazing!) I received the photoetch and it looks fantastic! The silk-screened waterslide decals are in production now and I should receive those soon. The 3D Captain figure designed by Ian and sculpted by Fin McGechie is almost done as well. Below is some progress images:

Jake Parker’s Chompbot #5

Jose Alves da Silva, a fantastic 3D character sculptor has finished up the pilot for the Chompbot. Another model-maker is working on the Chompbot and we’ll post progress on that as soon as we can.

Scott Robertson’s Orbship

The 3D design of the Orbship is progressing nicely. The final scale is now most-likely 1/48. Pics soon!
