Ian McQue’s ‘Sky Mark’!

[singlepic id=823 w=420 h= float=]

Yeah, I know…. FINALLY! The next Ian McQue release! I had asked Ian soon after the Remora release about doing a small release like a buoy that could be used with it and the other ships we plan to produce and here’s the result. This ‘sky mark’ buoy isn’t a ship, but is a fantastic accessory for the Remora and the upcoming and unannounced (till now) “Waldo” airship. The Waldo will be officially announced with pics in 4-6 weeks. I’m waiting on some materials to get the hull in a state that I can show off. For now though you’ll have to wait. Sorry!

The Sky Mark was conceptualized by Ian McQue and sculpted by Myself (Michael Fichtenmayer/FichtenFoo). Ian provided me with a series of sketches of different shapes and designs, then he made a rough 3D rendering of the Sky Mark for me to use as reference during the sculpting. This buoy will feature approximately 14 resin parts, wire, decals, and a LOT of photoetch for the truss frames. (Etch features push-out rivets to make it more dimensional) It’ll also come with two clear red blinking LEDs that you can use to light it up. (wiring/batteries not included, but probably a how-to in the instructions)

This 1/35 scale buoy will be approximately 12 inches/30cm tall when complete and about 3 inches/8cm wide. No idea on price or actual release date yet. The PE is in production, the master for the resin is done, but the resin parts are not yet in production and are actually sitting on my worktable waiting for one of my casters to be freed up.

Chompbot Print Master Images

Been promising pics of these for a few days, but had some random stuff to deal with first before I could get to them. I’ve been working on some minor detail-up and clean-up to the mecha reprint as the original had some issues, but the reprint lacked some of the mods of the original. All good now though! Sorry for the excessive use of sticky-tack on the figs, but I can’t glue them otherwise I couldn’t cast them! The canopy will be vacuformed instead of clear resin and there will be photoetch to complete the figures.

These will go to the casters tomorrow I believe which means they’ll be ready in about 6-8 weeks. No plans for a preorder date just yet but of course if you filled out the ‘Notify Me’ form in the sidebar, I’ll let you know in advance of the date.

FichtenFoo’s Hornethopter Pre-Build

[singlepic id=156 w=420 h= float=]

Here’s some shots of FichtenFoo’s upcoming steampunk themed Hornethopter. These are images of the kit pre-built and temporarily tacked together for photos before I finish the minor clean-ups and start painting.You might see some yellowish temporary latex adhesive on the legs and head along with some white “blu-tack” used for temporarily building it. You’ll also notice the missing clear windscreen. That part is still in production as I haven’t received my sample for the build-up yet. I’ve also not-yet added the rigging. But I did want to show you guys how cool it looks. Believe it or not, when put together it’s bigger than the Fish-Sub!

Most of the Hornethopter’s first edition has been reserved. The remaining kits will be added to the Industria Mechanika Shop in a few days where they can be preordered.

Estimated Release Date: September 5th, 2011     Price: $80.00 USD + Shipping.
