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.

A cool treat today, Tony finished up the 3d models of the exo armors he was working on for Jovian Chronicles Fleet Scale. Checkout the image below of the of the small 15mm tall Wyvern, Syreen, Pathfinder, and Hector 3d models added to a photo of the existing Fleet Scale fighter squads, flight stands, spaceships, and a ruler for scale. He even made a commander models for each exo, so each squad base will have a commander and 2 stock models.

The Dream Pod 9 office will be closed from December 24th, 2015 to January 3rd, 2016 for the Christmas to New Years Holidays. We'll still be around answering emails and questions on Facebook and the DP9 Forum. I'll be using the time to finish up the new Heavy Gear Blitz Quick Start Rulebook ebook, with the goal of having it available for everyone to download before the new year. We'll be back in the office on Monday January 4th, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
