Hello again everyone and once again, Happy Anniversary to us! Be sure to read the anniversary blog post and enter our giveaway! Now onto the news…

Scott Roberson Orbship »

orbshipmaster-01

First up, I finished the detailing of the Orbship master parts. I can’t stress enough just how large this thing is in 1/48 scale. The ship is also hollow which will allow for some great and easy lighting to be done!  The photoetch is underway and should be completed within the next week. We’re trying something new with this release and that is laser-cut windows. If this works out, you can expect more laser-cut add-ins for future products such as pre-cut window glass, hornethopter wing panels, wood decking, etc…

 

Adrian Smith’s Frankenstein »

frankenstein-01

The first sample of Frankenstein is on its way to me, should have it tomorrow or Tuesday. Once it arrives I can start on the instructions and box-art. Thankfully my caster has a LOT of different sized boxes and was able to pack him into a box, nicely padded, with a little room to spare which will then fit into a postal large flat rate box. I was worried he might be too large to fit, but now that’s one less thing for me to worry about.

1/35 and 1/24 Deckhands »

I’m sorry to say that there has been some production delays on these. About a month ago I readied 30+ preorder boxes for shipping with lables and customs forms filled out and ready to go expecting a batch of 35  of the 1/35 scaledeckhands from one of my casters in the mail. It never arrived. Since then he’s been having trouble remolding the hand on one of them which has made the delay worse. He expects to have the molds ready in a few days and will be making additional-molds (more than usual) to speed-up the process. We’re terribly sorry about this and are working to remedy this as fast as possible. Obviously all this extra time has pushed back his work on the 1/24 scale deckhands as well, but I got two samples from him the other day and they’re awesome! Here’s a pic:

Adrian Smith’s Frankenstein »

frankenflyer1

The wait is almost over for this massive beast! Adrian Smith’s Frankenstein is 12″ tall (not including base height) and features over 50 parts, real chain mail and chain. There’s 3/4 gallon of resin used in each kit if that gives you an idea of the mass. Due to the weight, international shipping costs will be somewhat higher than usual.

redstar-18

Hi everyone! I’ve been on a family vacation to the beach this past week so haven’t been as in-touch as usual. Hotel had great wi-fi of course, but the netbook I took is crap! Got back yesterday after a 9-hour drive home with kids in the car (Fun!) and am getting to your emails and questions as fast as possible. Hopefully this post will help.

Today I’ve got preorder updates for Sasha and Deckhands, images of many master prints including the Red Star 47, Sasha and Barrio 1/24, and Dustbuster pilot, and probably a few more informational tidbits.

Red Star 47 »

Here’s the first images of the master print taken by Ownage prior to shipping. As soon as I receive it I’ll snap more images, create the photoetch parts (since I need to do measurements) then send it off to David Guertin for casting.

iMech News 12-16-2011

There’s lots going on with iMech and our collaborators. A lot of projects are near completion a means we’ll start to hit our goal of one major release a month soon! Here’s some random news highlights:

Miguel Lopez Dustbuster

I’ve been getting a few emails and PMs asking when the Dustbuster will be ready. Here’s some shots of the model so far. It’s getting really close to completion and we’re hoping for a release no later than April 2012.

Adrian Smith’s Frankenstein

This wasn’t planned initially as an Industria Mechanika release, but we couldn’t resist when we saw it! The Frankenstein started as a contest for CGHub where Adrian Smith supplied a few sketches and it was up to 3D modelers to interpret them. The winner got a printed copy of their design. I asked Adrian, CGHub and the winning artist, Rishi Nandlaskar if they’d like to produce it into a model and the answer was a resounding yes! The print is on it’s way to me now so expect this “beauty” to be released in the first half of 2012.

More Adrian Smith Designs

We also have two more of Adrians designs in the works and will be collaborating with Adrian and CGHub soon on another contest. Watch CGHub for details.

Jake Parker’s Chompbot #5

The 3D portions of the Chompbot are at the printer and should get to Jeff Brewer, our modeler for hand-refinement soon. Once he gets them and takes some pics I’ll post them. We’re also working on more accompanying figures by Jake Parker and Jose Alves da Silva as seen below.

Kallamity’s Kastor

The Kastor is on its way to us from Luca and as soon as I get it and take photos to start the instructions, and send the PE files to the etch producer, it’ll be on its way to the caster. Expect it in early 2012!Luca took some inspiration from Ian McQue’s rendering and added the following figures to the kit. Woo!

Dmitry Parkin’s Vampire

The Vampire is at the caster and will begin production as soon as the 1st Edition Remoras are out the door. The Vamp is our next release so watch for preorders to begin in January!
