EXTRA FUNDING CAMPAIGN


Pledge Total: $45,822.00 CAD (updated on Dec. 30th, 2018)

 

DP9's Extra Funding Campaign for our Peace River & NuCoal Core Plastic Miniatures is now live on the DP9 Pledge Manager website. Our Kickstarter raised over $40K CAD, unlocking our initial funding goal and numerous stretch goals, but not the $50K CAD goal we really wanted to reach. Hence our Extra Funding Campaign, please support Dream Pod 9 as an Outside Backer and pickup a new plastic miniatures army for Peace River, NuCoal, and/or Utopia at $70 CAD each, or one of our other great Backer reward level deals and maybe a few Add-Ons as well.

Login and create your pledge manager account, select your reward level and any add-ons and then checkout paying your pledge and fixed shipping cost. Backer reward packages are expected to start shipping in March 2019.

Utopia Kickstarter Plastic Injection Mold Update!

Work has started at the mold production company over in China on the plastic injection mold for the Heavy Gear Blitz Utopia Armed Forces Kickstarter plastic models. This week we received the mold flow analysis for all Utopia model sprues. The update includes a graphic with images of various mold flow analysis tests done on the sprues that will be used to determine where to place additional entry points for the molten plastic so that it reaches and completely fills all the parts. As well as water cooling pipes and sprue ejector pins needed in the molds.

We should receive the final mold plans in the next week or two for approval and then work will start on cutting the mold plates. Followed by Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) processing to burn all the fine part details in the steel mold plates. Once we have the plans we'll do another update and share progress reports and photos as molds are prepared.
