I want to try to keep this one short and sweet, but I want more to make sure I let you know what’s going on here. So, without any further delays, here we go.
I managed to ship all the outstanding orders this week except a few that need molds replaced and a couple that just came in late in the week. If you are still waiting for an order from before I re-opened, you should have received an email explaining the delay. If not, please email me ASAP! Something is wrong and I need to hear from you!
If you ordered in the last 7-10 days and have not received shipping notification, then your order has been cast and will ship as soon as the Labor Day holiday is over.
You can start ordering again! I am back to full operations! Now spread the word. Tell your buddies TMD is back and better than ever.
THE NEW SHOP
The shop is now put together. It is still a mess from the scramble to get all the outstanding orders shipped, but, otherwise, I can operate as usual. There is a LOT more room in the shop now, and it is easier to work than it was in the old shop. I even have room for expansion. I’ll post pictures next week — after I’ve cleaned up a bit. Anyway, the point is: the new shop should serve us both well in the future. It will make me more efficient, which means faster service for you.
THE NEW MASTER BENCH
I am putting the finishing touches on my new master and paint benches this weekend. I’ll post pictures of those, too. But I hesitate to do that because — honestly — I feel bad about showing off my new modeling space. It is the best I have ever had and I feel a little guilty about it. But I can say this: I can’t wait to get back to mastering, and that will be good for everyone who likes the TMD line.
Finally, I have had it. My body is giving up on me. I have simply pushed this old, out of shape tub of lard I call my body too hard for too long. Every joint I have aches. I wake up hurting. So, General BB has commanded that I shall not work from now until Tuesday morning. I can build, but only for me. Otherwise, I am under an involuntary 72-hour ban on all TMD operations (sorry).
THAT IS ALL
OK, that’s all I have for now. More next week. Until then, stay safe and try to build something (preferably something using TMD resin).
