First, we have been working on this project for months now, and it is coming along nicely. Tony Celliers of Dynamic Digital Creation is also involved. We are using the files he had previously cleaned up for the Galactica that he is making as a starting point for our large kit. Parts breakdowns etc will change based on printer size, and molding needs. Tony will also be assisting us with reworking the files that we were recently provided by Lee Stringer for the fully detailed landing bay interior set pieces.
I have now received feedback from The Kit Factory’s own Simon Mercs ( at the end of the first week of August 2020) that the client for this piece loved the test print, even with the minor issues that were present, and we are working with a Caster to get quotes. Once that process is complete the Caster and I will work together to determine the best parts breakdown for casting and assembly. At that point is when we will be sending updates on a regular basis to Modelers Miniatures & Magic for all to view regularly. I am hoping to hear back from the caster with quotes for approval soon. We hope to have pattern producing to commence in early October 2020. That will mean that the first prints would come off in mid October 2020 if all goes well.
Below are some images. The photos on the brown table top (with the old Timeslip kit head shown for size reference) are taken by me. The photos on the cutting mat, and with Simon in the pictures, are taken by Simon Mercs. These photos are representative of the size and detail level that would be present in the kit, but there are obvious issues we had with the print, that are visible between some of the parts where they fit. These images are also not representative of the way the kit will be laid out for the G&T production. Going beyond , the armor plates will come off of the final version the same way that Tony Celliers kit does. I hope these images prove as exciting for you to see as they were for me when I saw the gargantuan size of this beast after I printed the parts.
