...I was lucky that time, but it seems this is courier revenge, because Andy's missing package may well have contained my dragon!  :tantrum:

Um....it did.:kick:

Sorry. :terrified:

Meanwhile I finally got the money together to get enough lead-rich metal ordered to make the seriously heavy metal Dragon masters to make the spincast moulds.
How much would the dragon have to sell for if it was all metal?  :P

What a setback; I sure hope that the courier finds it, or compensates handsomely. 

I'm curious; where's my dragon in the queue?

I may be going overboard but since it's probably 1000's of pounds of product I'd perhaps get the police (or at least threaten to get the police) involved if the courier company doesn't do anything.

Well, it would weigh something like 12kg in metal, so at least 450... and you wouldn't want to have to hold it in one hand whilst painting it!

pS Don't know which courier it was.

I suspect one with few scruples, a knowledge of illegal procedures, and probably one who knew lots of people wanted these dragons very much and would be willing to pay a lot of money for them.

and they normally managed to find the box somewhere

You mean reluctantly admitted they still had it?

Oh dear, sorry to hear this about the dragons, Royal mail managed to lose an Ogre that I painted up for Paint Iad for CMON. Andy, you had better get a move on and clear this backlog so that I can order one too! I've just finished CMON's Cang the Implacable http://www.coolminiornot.com/forums/showthread.php?49449-Introducing-Cang-the-Improbable-AKA-Glowing-Moorwen-Dragon-of-Dooom-%28TM%29 so will be looking for another project in a few months, once I've got my enormous metal dragon  http://www.flickr.com/photos/kittykat23uk/sets/72157629689347123/ done..

Spending the next week doing my accounts, and then it's at least a month of solid Dragon related work - spincasting as much as I can to build up stock.

Got a big pile of metal castings in front of me, cleaning them up to make silicon moulds with. unfortunately, several people have demanded a refund lately (despite the whole 'No Refunds' thing in giant font that they agreed to when ordering. Quite understandable, but immensely frustrating at this stage) which ironically has prevented me from buying a deeper mould tin to make moulds of more of the parts and speed things up.

Also fixing the original sculpt ready for remoulding. Found a lot of white plasticene in the scales, etc and am currently adding a texture to the wings to make them look less 'blank plastic' and more organic, as well as slightly easier to cast as they'll be a mm or two thicker.

I actually wake up in the night now thinking of this bloody dragon and all the problems it causes...

PS as to accounts, thought they had been sorted, but got informed otherwise by the accountant today and had to dig around for more info etc. Bloody accounts! :lol:

Sorry to hear people have pulled out. I, like others are still happy to wait(not too long :)  )

The silver lining in this cloud of pull outs, is I hope I have moved up the list, 78 I think I was??????

BTW if I am going to get a resin one, think I read it somewhere, I am happy to wait a little longer than getting it quicker but in metal. Or did I misunderstand?

Not really practical to do it in solid metal, it would cost me over 600 just for the metal, never mind all the moulds! lol. Also it would weigh over 12kgs and be impossible to paint in one hand...

Not yet, I'm afraid. Ian is working on casting some more Dragons with the moulds, as are, over the next two weeks. Meanwhile, I am making some drastic changes to the torso, removing the wings. This will allow Ian to fit the torso and wings into his pressure pot, and mean less miscasts and thus faster dragons. I would also be able to fit the parts into a deeper mould tin at my end, in theory, and thus spincast them.

Wings are already off, am currently filling in and smoothing off joins for best fit of parts, also retexturing wing membranes, as I was never satisifed with them really and this seems as good an excuse as any to sort them out.

Yes, I will, unless the customer has very recently ordered (and has paid for delivery already) and therefore I have an up to date address...
