This is going to be the last entry prior the re stock of the GSE (and A320 sharklets / Wifi radome) models on the 24th.
I am working full throttle to get to the 24th with everything done, although unfortunately I won’t be able to release the TLD ABS1740 stairs by that time, I will release it a couple weeks afterwards, however.
I am adjusting it, since it will slide, there are several parts that need to fit perfectly and sometimes even it is computerized, it is trial and error (being so small) but so far it is going very well. Main reason for the delay on the stairs truck is not only the model itself, but the preparation that it requires; the design of the decals/ instructions.
On the good side, I will release figures that can fit the belt loader and the baggage carts, and speaking of baggage carts, I have been able to make the finished versions as product promo for the store:
I also have been on time to complete the dollies sets which will also be available on the 24th:
I am handling many small parts (but paying a very special attention to packaging) baggage carts will consist in a set of 3 carts, my aim is have 10 units of each variant which translates to 4 wheels + 1 spare wheel x 3 carts= 15 wheels per set, so 10 stock units is a total of 150 tiny wheels… plus the other baggage cart type, +150 wheels, 300 wheels in total.
The same applies to the baggage, baggage included per set is of 15 baggage pieces (5 per cart) so that makes it a total of 300 baggage prepared, and these will also be available separately.
Store will be closed for settings and preparations from tonight 22:00 CMT time (or earlier) till January 24th (will be probably at around 12:00 CMT).
Reason for closing the store for preparation is basically that, new products will be uploaded, galleries will need to be double checked, shopping cart, shipping and other things are going to be checked. There will be a new option when chosing a product with multiple options such as decals, in the past I made the customer write in a text box the desired decal, this time, there will be a drop down menu (or image update) upon the decal choice, this is something very simple yet the default store did not include such function therefore other modules had to be purchased.
I will keep on preparing these models, and also working on the stairs truck. From that point, I will be starting to prepare and test the 1/200 GSE models while I work on the next 1/144 model; the Commander 15i cargo loader.
On top of that… I don’t forget the 747-400F/-8F nor the 1/12 B737 cabin, I really want to talk deeper on these subjects since now the way of make things for me has changed considerably, this may help me (a lot) to speed up things, specially for the 1/12 B737 cabin, will talk more about it soon.
Thank you everyone for your patience!
