JC Fleet Scale Exo-Armors in Pewter!

Dave made the production molds for the small Jovian Chronicles Fleet Scale Pathfinder, Hector, Wyvern, and Syreen Exo-Armors today. I grabbed a set of the first pewter castings and took parts photos for each of the new two squad packs. After that I primed the exos-armors in grey and painted the 3 pronged poseable flight posts in black and assembled the squads. The image below shows the primed Pathfinder, Hector, Wyvern, and Syreen Exo-Armor squad bases in front of Athena and Hachiman Spaceships with the pewter parts photos below.

Kickstarter Update: Steel Mold Plates Photos.

This week we have a progress update on the steel mold plates for the plastic injections molds. The company making the molds sent us some early progress photos of some of the steel mold plates. The image below shows the first step in making the molds plates, where they use a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machine is used to rough out the mold cavities. There is an photo of the CNC Machine cutting one of the mold plates at the bottom of the image. This removes most of the excess steel, but does not do the fine details in the parts cavities.
