New model preview – general update and Happy Holidays

Hello everyone,

Yes, I am still here, spending the days working on the stock units, new items and hopefully, being able to complete a few other models for product page examples soon.

Today I wanted to say a couple things; first of all, I wish everyone wonderful holidays, it is time of being home with the warmth of the family, or on a nice trip, very soon time to say goodbye to this year, and pass page again for the next one.

Now, on regards the units, how are these? when they will be released? Things are progressing, I really can’t go any faster than this, something I thought would be ready at the end of November is taking me so long that I have to move my hopefully new release date to January next year.

Products are still being packed, PE is being made, had lots of troubles to make it again since I changed a few things such as the UV source and that altered the whole process.

In any case, work is continuing on, I have started to take the final product photos which you can see some examples below, and a bonus model I wanted to comment about:

It is a (at the moment 1/144) passenger stairs. It is adjustable and it is based on the TLD ABS 1740 model. It will fit from an A320 to a B777 door heights, which is basically a quite wide range of aircrafts. I also plan on creating figures, and a set I have in mind is going to be specifically created to fit and be used on these stairs.

Now on regards product photos,  there is nothing new as everything has yet been covered, but since work is continuing on and I don’t have much else to show, here are a few images:


More progress is continuing, once I have a bit more to share, I will, in the meanwhile, wish all of you can have all the love and time of your beloved ones in these special days!

Best wishes,

Hello all,

I am writing this entry to let you know of the process on the stock making of these new GSE items. The day I said I was going to release these by the end of November, I probably wasn’t thinking this carefully enough.

I am literally cutting hundreds of parts to prepare these units and packaging them very carefully to make sure nothing is left, so once I bag parts of a particular item, I do it in its entirely to make sure each bag has the same number of parts.

The AST-1 F600 has around 40 parts, I currently prepared 10 sets, so that is a total of 400 parts bagged. It really is not that time consuming, but considering that stock has to be made of all items, that is what takes me most of the time, if it was re stocking an out of stock item, it would be quicker, but it is the entire catalogue (and some other new items) I am re stocking.

As I said in my previous entry, I am starting with the models that have more parts, so smaller items such as the baggage carts or trolleys will not take that long.

The reason for providing the kits this way is for a very fundamental reason, cutting the parts out of the base to be assembled on the model is something very delicate, I break one while doing so; I have spares, I can also make them again, so what I want to do with this is to leave the items ready to be assembled, this also saves on weight which translates on saving shipping prices and the time to do this is not that much consuming if we think of restocking a couple items, again making the entire catalogue is what is taking me that long time.

This weekend I am starting to bag the belt loader parts, hopefully I can keep up working at full speed every day and have them ready soon.

Thank you all for reading and for the patience, in between stock making and bagging these parts, I am also working on new items, I have done a first test with a retractable passenger stairs for which I plan to make a collection of figures later on.

Wish you all a nice weekend,
