We're creeping forward (ever so slowly) but it is forward!
I have the first resin versions of the shell, there are a few very minor things that need corrected but the caster is the one that pointed them out- I would probably have missed some of them! He's doing a revised mold to fix everything, so with one more package from NZ I think we'll be set to order the shells.
It is January, and dues are due again but I'm not pressing it yet- I hate to ask for dues one more time without something in hand. There is enough in the treasury to get started, we just have to make sure everything is right on the production side. So I'm going to say that when the shells are ready to go, anyone that is a member and has paid dues in the past will be eligible for the member's price. Jim O' (our treasurer) has kept very detailed records of who has paid and who hasn't sowe knowwho you are. We do have a couple that joined the Yahoo group but haven't paid- some might have forgotten, but in at least one case I know the reputation of the member and it's probably not an oversight! More like what my grandmother would have called "nose trouble", just trying to keep up on what we're doing! When I make the announcement anyone who hasn't (or doesn't) pay up will be dropped- no leeches here!
And anyone who hasn't joined can join then and get the stuff at the member's price too, so some of the wait and see types can get in on it too. I'm not trying to be a hard Haggis, I'd like everyone to have the opportunity to buy if they want, members or not but the members are the one that are spending their money to make this happen. And hopefully many more projects to come!

With the SW1200 getting pretty close, I'm getting excited about pulling something out of a box and with little/no assembly it can be plopped down on the rails and run. About a year ago the GP38-2 was making good progress, but haven't heard anything lately. I'm hoping it is still in the works... :pray:

Well, we're kind of a the mercy of the caster right now. I contacted him a couple months ago, he said he needed to make new molds to correct a couple small issues. I last heard from him on April 19, so I'm hoping he's making some progress!

Reading some of the early posts, was a chassis ever decided on for the gp38?
