Don't call me Junior!

Yep, still alive! I've taken a break from Trigun kits to concentrate on...
Movie Accurate Indiana Jones Webleys! I'm neck deep in a limited edition
run of these kits for another site, and hope to make them available to the
general public in the future.

Eventually I'll also be adding a sales page for both the Webley and the Trigun
kits, and they will be built to order, rather than keeping on-hand stock. This
will create more work for me, but it should also help people who don't like
waiting for site updates (that sometime take 5 months to happen. Sorry!

I hope you're all having a nice spring, and As always,
thanks for visiting Rook's Castle!

Happy New Year!

I have a few of the new Cold Cast Aluminum Trigun kits up on eBay!

As always, the BIN price is $144.99 shipped in the USA. I have 5 kits total.
One is on hold for a person, two are actually up on ebay and one is in reserve.
I just sent one to SWEDEN of all places!

You can easily find them by using the eBay 'Trigun Kit' search.

Check out the revised Version 2.1 assembly/instruction manual.

What's Cold Cast? That's when you mix Aluminum powder into the resin as it's mixed.
It's kind of tricky to get done correctly, and more time consuming than the black resin versions,
but if you can pull it off, the results are quite nice. The final result is heavier, is
slightly cold to the touch, has a slight metallic sheen and is slightly stronger as well.

On the left, current version 2.0 kit in black resin. On the right, experimental Cold Cast Aluminum kit! It looks pretty nifty in person, more metallic silver and less grey.

As always, thanks for visiting Rook's Castle!
