I will be available with the VTOL-engines instead of rotors too right?!

but I hope that the wire will provide the necessary stability.

It will but because of the shape, you may find it twists, even with the wire. Honestly it depends on the particular resin and heat during curing, which you already knew :)



Resin is actually quite eay to drill with a pin vice. However yes, they should have a dremel type device for cleaning and working with it. But then anyone who does modelling should have one :D
So many projects..... so little time.......

I wouldn't mind one or two depending on the cost...

Looking forward to updates.

Yes, she's a little beauty  :-*

I'd love one, depending on the cost. So long as it's not GW levels I'll almost certainly order one (maybe two ... three?). 

I was hoping that there will be some nice tie-in toys from Avatar - those VTOLs on the previews look superb - but yours is just as good and in 28mm too :D

Here is the completed minigun, both pictures rather overexposed.




The six-barrel version is also in progress (yes, Thorbjørn, even with VTOL engines ;))

Two Questions

When Can I buy them ?  and
When can I Buy them?

They may seem like the same question but I felt it important enough to say twice


Lovely model

I hope to get enough castings done in the next days for a release at the start of the new year. I'll announce the release here a day or two before making it (more) public, so you may rest assured that you'll be among the first to know.

Have you got a rough figure for the price?

I managed to cast the three-barrel minigun ;D Top one is the master model, bottom ones are the first casts:



I had almost no hope of getting any decent casts at all, but even the separate barrels turned out beautifully, with only a hint of flashing. It won't make it into the shop, but I'll add one for free to any Dragonfly bought by a Lead Adventurers, as long as the mold lasts.

Have you got a rough figure for the price?

I do ;) Originally, I planned to announce a price with the release, but since I received a few PMs on this subject already, I might as well do it now. The kit will be 32.50 EUR, and consists of 10 parts (3 legs, gun, 2 main engines, 2 secondary engines, body and tail). If you are particularly desperate for the minigun version you might want to drop a PM, as I will be adding those on a first-come-first-served basis, and the first three are already preordered  o_o

Thanks! That will help me plan my budget and save up for one  :D

First things first ;) The helicopter will be released most probably at Tactica in February.

For anyone interested, here it is: the Dragonfly XRT-16!

Took a day longer than I expected (always does), and the initial release is rather small (always is), but what the heck. As promised, if you give me your Lead Adventurer alias in the order comments, a free three-barrel minigun is yours 8).
