Quoted from Manny65:

Think you have a lifetime of planes to paint ... 12,716 games manufactured, so only 842 batches to go

#1702 3 months ago

Please add me to the list. I'll take both planes and figures and brackets and anything else that makes sense. I think that makes me #3!

You will all be blown away at the quality of these planes. The propellers spin and the led lights blink. By far the coolest mod in pinball. I’ve had mine installed for a year and they are working perfect. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK KORN!!!!

Thanks brother! I’m now actively exploring cowling guns for Batch 4 and 5 so that should be good

#1716 3 months ago
Quoted from KornFreak28:

The trick on single-engine propeller-driven planes is to get them to not fire when the propeller is in the way. This was a real problem in WWI. Early fighter pilots often had to be careful about how much they fired their forward machine gun because firing it would slowly eat away at their own propeller.

The first to find a “quick and dirty” solution for the problem was French ace Roland Garros, the same Garros after whom the French tennis stadium is named, and his solution was to attach two armored wedge-like plates on the back of his propeller. They would ricochet the bullet away should it hit the propeller. It was a plausible solution, and made him an ace, but on cost of performance.

The first to invent a true interrupter gear was Dutch Antonius Fokker. He installed a cam plate on the propeller shaft, and a camshaft with bellcrank to the lock of the machine gun. The bump of the cam plate raised the bellcrank, which then pushed the camshaft, which in turn prevented the machine gun from firing. This proved to be a good solution and did not hinder the performance of the plane.

Guys, about airball protector set, here is the pricing info:
The price of set is $35 plus shipping (same price as in 2019). Shipping is 10-12 USD, depends of location.
Based on requests linked to Planes, I won't charge any shipping cost, but send a pack of sets to KornFreak28 to save on shipping.
The plan is still the same: to create a batch in 2-3 weeks.

#1718 3 months ago

Just finished a game on my IJ and have to say these planes absolutely make the playfield. Have had them over a year and they make me smile every time I play. Thanks again KornFreak! Incredible work!!

These planes are the greatest mod for any game. Ever. I can’t wait post a pic of them on my restore when Korn finishes.

Thank you! Without random encouraging posts like these, I honestly don't think I’d still be making IJ planes.

Gents
Get Korn to make these for you now. I fear (for some of you) that he will stop and then you will be stuck with the POS stock planes. These BELONG in the game.

This will be used as a topper! It's the wing plane from Raiders of the Lost Ark, and will be wired the same way your planes are. This plane has been by far the most difficult one I've done. I'll post a few pics later! Thanks brother!

Good stuff

#1738 82 days ago

These planes are simply fantastic!
Question though, are the 3D printed figures available for purchase outside or doing a full plane order?

I‘d absolutely love to add these to my plane.

Thanks

#1744 71 days ago

Korn can I get in on a set of planes and protectors? Am I too late to get in on both and save shipping?

#1745 70 days ago
Quoted from paynemic:

For a set of planes you could sign up for Batch 5 if you like. Batch 4 is closed. For the airball protector feel free to contact Davi

To answer your question, I’m only taking and shipping (with the planes) airball protectors for Batch 4 folks.

Not done yet: Adding 3 Idols to my ruins before a new paint job. A little side project I’ve been wanting to do for a while now

A big thanks to all of you, especially to kornfreak28 for his offer about combined shipping.

Batch 5:

My good friend davi contacted me today and asked if I could take Batch 5 protectors to save you guys on shipping. After careful consideration I’ve decided to help you guys out by taking your protectors under the following conditions:

You understand that you will have to wait until I make your planes in order to get the protector. I cannot be pressured or hurried into finishing your planes quickly just because you need the protector. I like to give my planes plenty of details and that takes time. That means you get the protector until I ship your planes. I will NOT ship the protectors separately.

Also, I do not have a timetable or “ballpark” ETA for my planes. I work on them almost on a daily basis but this isn't my “job” and I don’t/can’t work on them 8 hrs a day. I’m just about done with 3 Batch 4 orders and will promptly continue on to the next 5 orders and so on and so forth.

VERY IMPORTANT:

If you are in Batch 5 and I get your plastic protector and all of the sudden you decide to drop out of Batch 5, I’m NOT going to ship the airball protector to you. At that point, that protector becomes my property. If we do this is because you are committed to getting my planes.

If you do not agree, I suggest you get the protector directly from Davi.

If you are OK with this and you have already signed up for Batch 5 let me know by posting in this thread. I’ll give you guys till the end of this week to decide. I need for Davi to ship them asap since I’m getting close to completing 3 orders. Thanks!

#1749 65 days ago

Hey kornfreak28 I'd like to get the protector.

Thanks!

I would like combined shipping and am fine with your conditions. Thanks for your offer!
