    I am very sad to hear that she died. I remember her, she came by my booth several times and definitely seemed to be having a lot of fun at the show. My condolences.

    I remember her a well. We had a lengthy discussion about Stargate and whether Atlantis was a worthy successor to SG-1. She seemed like a nice girl. This is sad news indeed. :(

    That's a shame, I'm very sorry to hear that. She was quite young, and she definitely seemed to be enjoying herself. At least one of the last moments you have to remember her from is a happy one. :(

    I remember talking to both of you at one of the tables and showing my inked art (Disney Princess/Sailor Moon). She was very sweet and rambunctious and I loved the story she told of her tattoos and the reasons she got them. I only talked to her that one time but I can definitely say that anyone who knew her well has suffered a great loss.

    This weekly email was sent to me and I forwarded it direct to everyone that still have orders for the Vector Zeta set. There are links in this email from the manufacturer that show the first completed sete without the shoulder stacks attached. We have turned the corner and are on our way to getting these sets out to the fans of this set. Thank you for waiing and I hope we can get them out to you as fast as possible.

    Hey Chad,

    Just got back from X-mas with my family. Besides that, Painting has really
    slowed down my process. I decided to paint the whole kit, and maybe I
    shouldn't have decided that. I was really hoping to show that off as an
    update. The work has just been tedious and slow.

    That process:
    1. trim all flash
    2. clean all 35 pieces with soap water and toothbrush, and it turns out
    that with multiple kits I end up cleaning 350 pieces if I do it 10 kits at
    a time.
    3. paint a layer
    4. dry
    5. rinse and repeat.

    I'm really close to clearing all these hurdles, just give me until friday.
    I gaurantee 10 finished sets will be done and lined up(not taking into
    account the sets that are casted but not painted). I'll take some pics, and
    then you'll get a delivery receipt the following week

    Hi All,

    Chad is currently without internet access and wanted me to post these to the thread:

    "Here we go,

    The pic of the kit on the optimus figure has been fully assembled. The
    other pic shows what everything looks like just before stickers and
    assembly, which doesnt take very long. The most time consuming thing is the
    casting, prepping and painting.

    The second pic also includes one of the kits in trailer mode, which is how
    it will be ship.

    For now on chad, I'll e-mail you at the end of every day to let you know
    where I'm at.

    I'm still working very hard on these things, lately when I delay an update
    its because I haven't been satisfied with the results I want. Now things
    look good, as you can see."

    It looks very good to me. Especially with the paint and the stickers, it really stands out.

    Here is a link to our FB page. It has the latest pic of the sets prior to the manufacturer boxing them up and sending them to us at Slagacon.
