Update:

I have had a fun time updating and improving the model.

The only major problem was the stamps for redoing the numbers and marks. It took three tries, three sets of stamps to get it right.

But due to the delay I was able to remake the receiver; I went back to a casting of a raw real Steyr Receiver and cut it down carefully using all the pictures to get it even more accurate than ever.

I molded the master yesterday and if it comes out ok will have a couple of plastic test casting to show you this week.

I found a few things I had missed all these years, they are now a part of the receiver.

Along with all the other small changes: the renumbering of the Bulldog frame, and the cocking lever.

The reshaping of the right side cover.

The changes to the ammo clip, large LED mounts and switch box which has the on and off marks, and will use a smaller switch.

I converted the sight rod to a one piece part not a two piece part of old. It now also has drilling marks as does the side cover.

A new bullet mold for plastic bullets for overseas orders where the real bullets can cause problems.

The Steyr front cap was also remodeled and remolded to make life easier for all of us. (No or less grinding to fit to the barrel)

I also got some feedback on the display stands, that with the heavy metal model it has a slight tenancy to tip forward, so I am ordering a modified version made for these models.

I will be writing all this up in a article for my web site soon, after I get the Jan models out.

These Jan models may run a little into the first week of Feb.

I am close just not there completely.

Thanks for all of your support and understanding.

And side note, these kits will be the first run of these new models so you are also getting them first.

The build ups will now include the 2010V on the plaque for the new version.

To my friends that got the older models, I will work out a deal for upgrading yours if wanted.

Rich

I had a hernia fixed in a place i wont elaborate on , and i feel for ya!
The less you move around the better, your days of throwing replicants are over and it will come to be a comfort that you now have a medical excuse for not having to grap the other end of the sofa.
Cant wait to see the photos of the updates!
.... My concern at this daunting project is how to drill out that skinny sight rod to install the green LEDs

I know and I am sorry,

I have this bad habit of fixing things up and making my model more accurate....

It is a illness I can not fight, when I learn something new or see I have something not correct I just have to fix it. (as soon as I can...)

There was a lot of more detail from the Auction pictures, so I had to correct thing to make it right.

ironfist. Hi I am down for a delux kit to be shipped overseas, Rich said he was planning to ship many parts in a few boxes to a prop maker here to forward on to there owners, So I can wait untill Rich has the run of kits ready and can ship the parts all together, makes sense.
