I have some new scouts for the Sing-Ons, inspired by some of Martin Evans new Woomera line. these will be made in both 1:3125 (around 2" long) and 1:3788 scale when the new 1:3788 Woomera ships are introduced in about a month. They are made with separate parts and shown in all of their various configurations.

Great company to do business with. Real quick turnaround on orders and good quality casting.

I was up late, so I forgot that two more variants can be made with the same parts (other than skipping the nacelle for just an impulse-style engine.) You will also be able to make the Thanatos triple-nacelle ships as well!

Sweet! Definitely putting in an order when these and the 1:3788 Woomera ships are released.

Finally got to posting some images of the Sing-on D7 Ka-Bingo CA! Have a look if you are interested.

Feel free to grab the images if you need them for your catalog Drew.

Great job with these. Love 'em. Two thumbs up mate!

I had hoped to have these ready by now, but I'm afraid that I need to push them into production with some help from you folks. It has been a very lean year in sales, and sparse other work, and my bills are starting to pile up (as I'm sure most of you are also experiencing in this economy.)

These Sing-On ~2" long escort ships have been added into the catalog for folks to pre-order (in both 1:3788 AND 1:3125 scales), with the understanding that I should have them in production and shipping in less than a month (with luck!) These pre-order prices may be lower than their final costs, and you can add to your pre-orders later to combine P&H when they are finally ready.

K-15 Shadow scout $5.00 USD
K-16 Wraith Scout $5.00 USD
K-26A Grimm Escort Corvette (standard) $6.00 USD
K-26B Grimm Escort Corvette (advanced) $6.00 USD
K-27A Reaper Escort Corvette (standard) $6.00 USD
K-27B Reaper Escort Corvette (advanced) $6.00 USD
K28A Scythe Frigate (standard) $6.50 USD
K28B Scythe Frigate (advanced) $6.50 USD
K29A Thanatos Light Destroyer (standard) $7.50 USD
K29B Thanatos Destroyer (advanced) $7.50 USD

(The Thanatos and Cerberus are similar, except for the top nacelle is different, by mixing and matching parts.)

Recently, I have struggled long weeks to get the "Orwell" drawn up, as well as her sister ships, ready to print and I have finally got it ready to show. There may be additional details added before production, along with smoothing of the various curves that my old software refused to add. The fleet will be named after other great SF authors, like "Bradbury", "Heinlein", "Asimov", and others. There will be single, double, and triple ringed versions, and the lengths will likely range from 3" to 5". I also plan to make the variant Battle-Cruiser seen in one episode, as well as the various "Krill"-like ships.

"Asimov" Single Ring Science explorer $8.50 USD
"Bradbury" Double Ring Medium Destroyer $9.50 USD
"Orwell" Triple Ring Deep Space Light Cruiser $10.50 USD

The "Heinlein" Heavy Battle-Cruiser $14.50 USD

Hopefully this will get everyone as excited as I am to see these produced, but I also have some items in my Etsy store for Orville fans! I am making 2" painted resin department badges and also going to produce painted Epaulet rank sets for folks to wear or use in Cos-play their costumes.

Hi Drew – so we'd pre-order the Sing-Ons now, but not any in-production stuff until the new Sing-Ons are ready, correct? You'll check in with us then?

Thanks,
Chris

You're free to order both in-stock items, as well as pre-order the new ones now, with an option to get stuff now and I will let folks know when the new stuff are ready to ship so you can add to that shipment. Things are getting a bit dire, and along with the bills I need to pay for the prints and tooling, so this is a way to raise that funding.

As a matter of fact, if anyone in the USA wants the in stock items AND pre-order the new ones, I will ship the new stuff for FREE as soon as they are ready! (I might even allow you to add some more later without adding any more P&H if it doesn't affect it too much.) My apologies to those kind folks overseas, but I think you already know how outrageous international postage is now…

I'll be posting a preview with more of the other 'Hysterical Utopian' ships today in my catalog, and link to them here in a separate thread.

"and my bills are starting to pile up (as I'm sure most of you are also experiencing in this economy.)"

Weirdly, unemployment is ridiculously low (has been for quite a while, consumer confidence is high, business confidence is generally high, and yet, I'm having some trouble finding work as well.
