Quoted from KornFreak28:

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!

Makes total sense. Your smart to not ask for pre order money as many are not patient enough to wait months. I get why some ask for money upfront, but it comes with expectations of a reasonable delivery timeline (and thats anyone's guess)....working at your own pace eliminates the emotional stress on buyer and seller....smart man!

#1752 68 days ago

Guys, these planes are just frickin amazing!
You don't want to install the protector till you get your planes anyway, its all one surgery installation.
Waiting on protectors is no big deal cuz Davi is amazing for making these too!
I dont want to say what amazing Favor Korn did for me....but I cant Thank him enough.
Perhaps...one of the best guys and mod makers out there. I know. Ive been around a lot longer than my date on pinside says.

That means a lot to me my good friend. Certainly there are way better mod makers out there but I do appreciate the kind words

I’m looking into possibly expanding a little and offer POA (temple brick look) painting services and “carving” Idols to the stock ruins. Here’s how I painted mine

Mate your planes are simply fantastic, and I'm sure you'll be inundated if you offer these as well!

Thanks! I used a color scheme that would blend nicely with the mini playfield colors. Any other color mix is possible.

#1760 64 days ago

Please add me to the list. I'll take both planes and figures and brackets. thx!

#1761 64 days ago

Thanks for your interest in Batch 5! Looks like 10 is a pretty good number. I may add a few more spots when I get closer to it. Thanks!

#1762 63 days ago

Someone just requested I leave the swastika symbol out of his plane. I want to let you guys know that this is not a requirement and it is ONLY done in an effort to replicate the movie plane as much as possible, that's it. If you don't want it on your plane advise me now. Thanks!

#1763 59 days ago

I'd like to be in on batch 5 if possible.

This one is a mix of the stock fighter plane and another plane the customer googled. Getting ready for the long journey to France! More planes coming....

I wanted to give a huge shout out to davi for pretty much saving the plane rescue operation.

Once Covid-19 hit, I was struggling to source Tiger moths for Batch 4. Even my supplier ran out of them. Luckily, I spotted a few on ebay from different sellers (at a much higher price) and that allowed me to work on the first couple of orders.

I thought about buying a different version that was available but I knew the Indy figures would not fit. So I turned to my good friend davi for help.

Luckily he was able to find a whole bunch of them for me and will be shipping them (along with the airball protectors) to me pretty soon.

Needless to say, I’ve been getting ahead of the game by working on all the fighter planes while the Tiger Moths arrive. Thanks davi I owe you one!

Wow that's sounds like a close call - would have been gutted if we ran out just before my name in the list.

Huge shout out to davi for saving the day and his protectors, and KF I luv the dedication to us IJ tragic's - the detail you put into the planes is awesome. I don't do many mods on my machines, I tend to keep them pretty close to the classic original however in my eyes this is one mod that people should have, as it just brings the PF alive!!!

Davi thanks for saving the day. Can’t wait to see my planes in the game. Will be the icing on the cake!

Here’s the lethal “Yellow Jacket” fighter plane. Yes, I know it has more green color that yellow but the spiral does look like a Yellow Jacket doesn’t it?

It has snake pattern camouflage, pilot, hand painted spiral propeller, and semi-gloss finish. Love the spiral effect!

#1782 43 days ago

Spinning!

**Disclaimer** Tail flag is ONLY done to replicate the movie plane as much as possible. It doesn’t have to be there and I don’t agree with what it symbolizes or represents to some people. Just felt the need to say that

Looks amazing! BTW, do you contact those on the list for customization options when it's their turn or is it up to us to contact you proactively?

Yes, you get to customize the fighter plane to your liking

Mdaniel, plovis and Manny65 please PM me your fighter plane preferences. If you already did, disregard. Looks like this Batch will go a bit quicker than expected since 2 people on the list only wanted Tiger Moths and 1 order has shipped already.

Currently working on:

Etiene's Tiger Moth (Fighter done)

Endproduck, MDaniel, plovis and Manny65 (Both Planes)

Ready to ship: NJNeil and okrak

Shipped: nicholasawhite1 (Tiger only)

Patiently waiting on Davi's shipment

It shipped a few weeks ago. With The Covid-19 pandemic, international mail has been painfully slow. I’ll post some pics soon

In other news, Davi’s package has finally arrived! Airball protectors and Tiger Moths are finally here! Thanks Davi!
