Well, I broke down and ordered the full Monte (feel dirty typing that) in WSFP. I still don't plan on painting much if at all possible.

I'm hoping to get a number of dyes and some material to test it on, see what I can come up with while I wait.

I copied some tiny pics from Hook and Scavenger to show what I mean, not a whole wrap, just some panels to cover the majority of whatever wrong color we are dealing with.

Well Daimchoc, that looks like most of the parts to me. Just curious, what are you missing?

And if you don't mind me asking, which face is that? there are so many out these days it's hard to remember them all. It looks a bit like Dr Wu's but I thought that was for Giant?

I'm waiting for the cab covers as well as the metal hip ratchets. That's the Dr. Wu Invulnerable face.

I finally saw that video of yours echo. That does the set more justice. I recommend you do with Devastator fully painted.

nice integra.

Soooo... where do you find your hope?

I don't why it didn't occur to me before. Echo, have you tried looking into making Herc's head look down? Anyway you can add something to make it possible?

Thanks.

Well, I don't know how it happened, but somehow a month passed without me reading this thread. Caught up on it last night, and everything looks amazing and I was very nearly placing an order for the full kit, when I was alerted to a grail item becoming available for just outside my price range. So I bought it anyway.

Unfortunately, now i'll have to wait a bit before I can get this, but hopefully the cab covers will be included at that point.

But really, the set looks fantastic, I love that it's polished - last month I got my first polished products from Shapeways and I MUCH prefer it to the plain WSF. Hercules is going to be unbelievably fantastic once I have this kit, I cannot wait.

I may even have to spring for the hip joint replacement, if I can't see another method of tightening them up. That's the biggest reason I don't display Hercules combined, i don't think he can support his own weight between the loose knee joint and hips.

I'll put it on the list, but it's fairly unlikely. I'm doing FOC Bruticus now, so that's got me really busy....

Great to see you back Ryan! Yes I expect cab covers will get added to main kit mid-to-late February once test results are in..that said, for ~$4, you're not saving much buying it outside the main kit

***IMPORTANT UPDATE***

I updated the crane port on all kits to address any looseness that may happen due to poor Shapeways tolerances. Although it's only one report of the part being loose, the fix is really simple--there's a few little tabs inside that can be easily shaved if it's too tight.

All kits updated as of tonight.

Cheers,

Echo

Hey guys i have a general Shapeways question. I recently received some parts from them and i had ordered the in Strong White Flexible Polished (first time getting polished) and i can't tell the difference. I compared them to some that were not polished and i see no difference. Should'nt they be kind of shinny? Any help would be great.

^^ they should be noticeably smoother, shinier almost production quality. Some stepping may remain depending on build orientation, but most if not all 'sandiness' should be eliminated.

Here are some pictures: Hercules "Rage Upgrade" Elbows

They might have skipped the polishing process entirely...if so contact them and I'm sure they'll help sort it out.

Cheers,

Echo
