Here is a link to a nice reminder by Adam Savage of Tested/Mythbusters fame, on the problem of recasting. I've posted about this issue before and Adam hits all the points perfectly. Thanks to Adam for picking up another kit! Here is the link!
The 3 kits of the EK Cosmonaut Series are back in stock at Industria Mechanika! Expertly sculpted by Gene Campbell these 1/8th scale kits feature cast resin parts, metal wires and decals. The perfect addition to the more adventurous modeller's display case!
As I mentioned in a previous post, the 1/6th scale Dystopic kits are also back in stock.
Get them at the IMech shop here!
The 1/8th scale EK Cosmonaut 02 is back in stock over at Industria Mechanika. Order now if you want to get one of these shipped out before Christmas!
Get one at: industriamechanika.com/shop/derek-stenning
The inventory of the 1/6th Dystopic kit is also getting low, and my not be re-printed until late 2018, so if you are interested in that kit, now may be the time to pick one up!
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…but this isn’t cool! It looks like those clowns at “Dream Cast” are at it again...bootlegging my EK model kits! Last fall they had released copies of the three figures in the 1/8th scale EK Cosmonaut Series, and now they have managed to produce a knock off of the popular 1/6 scale Dystopic kit. These bootlegged kits are recast from an original kit, often using cheap materials and parts, so they are of an inferior quality. But more importantly, they are produced without consent, and completely cut the creators, Gene, myself and Industria Mechanika, out of the loop. So if you are interested in purchasing a kit, please order directly from Industria Mechanika at: industriamechinka.com
1/6th scale Dystopic resin kits are back for pre-orders! Sculpted by Gene Campbell and produced by Industria Mechanika, this popular kit hasn't been in stock since January.....
All three 1/8th scale EK Cosmonaut kits are back in stock over at Industria Mechanika (I think this is the first time all 3 kits are available at the same time). Expertly sculpted by Gene Campbell, and produced by Industria Mechanika, these are great, high quality garage kits.
As I mentioned in a couple previous posts, bootlegged versions of these kits appeared last fall, but you can be sure that these are the real thing!
So if you need a kit or 2 to complete the series, or if you are looking for a full set, now is the time to pick them up!
The EK_02 1/8th scale resin model kit is back in stock at the IMech Shop. Expertly sculpted by Gene Campbell and produced by Industria Mechanika!
Bootlegged versions of this kit surfaced last fall....but this is the real deal!
The 1/8th scale EK Cosmonaut 01 and 03 kits are coming back for another run and are now available for pre-order over at Industria Mechanika. The shipping ETA of these kits is May 2017.
Lower quality boot-legged versions of these kits were circulating last fall so if you've been looking for an authentic version, now is the time to pick one up.
My 2 most popular EK Model Kits, Dystopic and EK Cosmonaut 02 are in the process of restocking over at Industria Mechanika. They are available for preorder now and they should be shipping around late January 2017.
It appears that some bootlegged versions of the EK Series Model Kits have been surfacing on Ebay lately, so buyers beware! If you purchase a kit from a re-distributor (that is to say, someone other than Industria Mechanika), please look for evidence of recasting and make sure the kit contains all the original, authentic pieces.
Industria Mechanika has shut down a few of these clowns before, at least temporarily anyways, as it is easy for the bootleggers to just change their online store handle and start selling them again. The easiest way to avoid this is to purchase your EK kits directly from Industria Mechanika on their website. Here's the link!
EK Cosmonaut kits EK.01 and EK.02 are packed up and shipping from Industria Mechanika. Thanks to everyone that picked one up! EK.03 will be shipping out soon, once Industria receives the laser cut bases for the kits.
There are still a few kits available for in-stock orders as well. Available here.
The final figure in the 1/8th scale EK Cosmonaut Series is now available for pre-orders over at Industria Mechanika. The ETA for shipping is late May 2016.
As with the other kits this sculpt was done by the talented Gene Campbell and features the same high quality production and materials.
The other two kits in the series have also restocked at Industria Mechanika....so if you missed them before, you can pick up the whole series!
The 1/8 scale EK Cosmonaut .02 and .03 resin model kits are restocking at Industria Mechanika and are available for pre-order now. The ETA for the shipping of these kits is the first of May 2016.
EK Cosmonaut .01 is coming... but unfortunately it won't be ready for orders until May, and will ship after that. Also around the same time Industria Mechanika is planning on have another round of 1/6th scale Dystopic kits ready for orders as well.
I will post again when these are kits are ready. Thanks!
Here is a shot of the master print for the upcoming EK Cosmonaut resin model kit. This is the third and final figure in the 1/8th scale EK Cosmonaut Series (although he is #1....we released them in reverse order....I don't know why!). Amazingly sculpted by Gene Campbell, this figure has the same great level of, and attention to detail, as the previous EK kits sculpted by Gene and released by Industria Mechanika.
This guy should be ready for pre-order in early February, 2016 and will ship out soon after that. I'll post again with the firm dates once I get them from Industria Mechanika.
A small batch (24 units) of 1/6th scale Dystopic Kits have been added to the Industria Mechanika Shop for pre-order. If you missed this kit before now is the time to pick one up. Head over to Industria Mechanika to order.
The kits will be shipped in early February 2016.
The 1/8 EK Cosmonaut kits are also in production. Figure #1 in the series should be available for pre-order soon. The 2nd and 3rd Figures in the series will also be restocked for a third run in the new year as well.
Industria Mechanika has restocked my 1/8th scale EK Cosmonaut 03 figure and is shipping orders immediately. If you missed out before you can get one here at the IMech shop.
Plus, the stock of the female EK Cosmonaut 02 figure is down to a few remaining kits, so if you want one, now is the time to pick it up. Get it from the IMech shop here.
The third kit in this series, EK Cosmonaut 01, is currently in the master print stage, and will then be broken up and cast for production. I will keep you posted on release dates!
As I mentioned in a previous post, I am shutting down my webshop while I'm living and travelling over in Europe for the next year. Response to the shop was great and I spent sometime this weekend packing up the last orders that will be shipped out today. Thanks again to everyone that picked something up!
My book is still available on Amazon and at other book retailers, and for those interested in the model kits based on my work, Industria Mechanika has the second figure in EK Cosmonaut Series available for pre-order now (shipping next month). Plus they will have the 2nd edition of the first figure back in stock next month, and the 1/6 scale Dystopic will be back in stock in the fall.
Here is a sneak peak at the master sculpt/print for the next figure in the EK Cosmonaut Series. Expertly modelled by Gene Campbell and printed by Des at Ownage, this figure captures all the detail of the original painting.
In the final kit the visor will be clear, so the interior head will be visible.
These should be available from Industria Mechanika in late June/July, 2015.
I will post again when they are in the IMech shop!
Industria Mechanika has added some Dystopic and EK Cosmonaut #3 kits up for restock preorders on their website. This run of these kits should be shipping in May 2015. If you missed them before now is your chance to pick one up! Check them out at the Industria Mechanika Shop here.
The second figure in the 1/8th scale, three piece EK Cosmonaut Series is complete and off for printing, casting, etc. Masterfully modeled again by Gene Campbell, this kit will have the same level of detail and quality as the last two kits. The packaging artwork is also complete so hopefully it will be be ready for pre-order and release fairly soon. I'll post again once the dates have been firmed up by Industria Mechanika.
Until then enjoy this sneak peek and go check out the other great kits at Industria Mechanika.
