Here's the latest and greatest.................
New print system is due to ship out this week.....first payment is due upon receipt and set up.....also have to have insurance due to cost (required by the bank), that initial payment is due as well..........
I am working with someone on the HO stuff to make sure it's scaled correctly.
Also working on 1/64 scale,
will be adding more in the 1/32 and 1/16 scales
Print time will be cut by about 99%, ink (not actually ink) costs will be cut by about 75% (will have a better idea once I've run thru a full set).
I may keep the ALPS for certain projects.
Even though the cost of the new system is pretty expensive for decals, I should not have to raise the price of the decals.
I do hope to be up and running within the next 2 weeks, providing the severe weather in the US doesn't hinder delivery.

To sum it all up, I won't have any more downtime like I did recently, turnaround will be a lot better, and I will have more time to work on even more stuff!!! (as if I don't have enough)

I wish to thank everyone for their support since I took over almost 4 years ago and look forward to do my best to contribute to this hobby.

I also want to thank my "unofficial staff" of spokesmen and the  R & D department (the guys taking pics for me). I would name them, but I'm afraid I would leave someone out.

Excellent news, Jerry. I have an order waiting to be submitted, if I can ever finalize it!

Printer went down again? I sent a few emails and got no reply.

Alan, I'm not down--just upgrading to a better and more reliable system. I have a full time job and haven't had a lot of extra time lately.

Doesn't work get in the way of so many things.

Sometimes I do need a full time crew!!!! It's still business as usual and I'm still printing as I type.
