    I won't be making prowl anytime in the near future. I'm thinking maybe steeljaw, ramhorn, or maybe start doing the wreckers and overlord at some point. After posting this model I've been snatched up to work on some really cool stuff that's taken my time at the moment.

    Thanks to everyone who has been picking up this model!

    So if I order a buzzsaw and lase beak, they come fully painted? I don't have to do anything to them? They look awesome! And are they shipping now? Totally unfamiliar with shapeways.

    You will not have to paint the textured ones which are now available :) 


    ...if you want to do it yourself you can also get a blank one.

    Wow, that is such a great news! I will buy both in nearest future. Also, it will be so cool if you can sell that Frenzy repaint, but, i guess i will try to make it myself. I need to figure out the paint though

    Didn't think there was much call for RH figures once the line expired a few years back, so I kinda stalled at Twin Twist. I'll have to paint up my Wreckers prototypes and get those guys finished first before I start anything else.

    Love to see what you come up with next Nyarl.

    I received the email this morning too, but about a dozen times :) 

    I'm working on it this morning to resolve the issue. Apparently Shapeways' automated system didn't detect a minor issue with the wing thickness when printed with the colored material. There is no problem when printed in other materials, just in this instance some elements have to be adjusted. I'm going to take the model down, update it, order some tests, and when it is verified working everyone will get an automated email from shapeways letting you know it's been fixed.

    Sorry for the delay everyone, I'll get working on it right away :)

    Nyarlahotep, thanks for making this project in the first place and then also getting it all setup correctly. I look forward to seeing how the color printed versions come out. I'm interested in seeing whether the color versions would also be the best for a set that would get handed painted anyway.

    Thanks guys. I assumed since the previous versions worked and printed out so well the colored versions would go out without a hitch.

    Apparently the tolerances and thicknesses of some parts behave differently with this material. I've uploaded a new version that I'm keeping private until I have a physical copy in hand that gets through the process completely.

    Thanks again for all the kind words and support, it hurt to see that over 20+ orders had been cancelled this morning :(
