    Keep an eye on the threads for the actual SND kits, any updates will be in those; I'm keeping this thread for other ideas for character conversions to that figure.

    But yes, unless something goes catastrophically wrong (like my PC exploding and taking my legs off), I can't imagine it taking any longer than that to get it to market. :) 

    Yep, Strong & Flexible definitely lives up to its name, while the Ultra Detail plastics are pin-sharp but incredibly fragile at lower thicknesses.

    As for designing, I used to use just Sketchup Pro, but since I started doing the kits with SND, I've started doing most design work in ViaCAD Pro.

    Don't give me ideas... :lol 

    Thanks, but nah, I have my own plans for Motormaster. ;) 

    Yeah, I noticed that, too... :p 

    Makoaspire, grab yerself Sketchup to make those feet happen! It's an absolute doddle to use, and with the ExportSTL plugin, you can export it as a file format Shapeways can use. :)

    First off, thanks for being so patient! We're at the stage where there's naturally not many updates to share, that stage where we've rocketed past "oh hey look, white prototype" but before we've arrived at "oh look, fully tooled and coloured model to show off". :p 

    We're definitely nearer the latter, though...

    As for me, I'm working on one of the most important bits of the entire thing: making sure the instructions are easy to follow.

    So, basically, where in the dry period where updates won't happen till we have something in glorious technicolour to show off, but I'm hoping we're not far off being able to show ye this bad boy in all its glory. :D 

    Oh dear, he's giving me ideas, too... :p
