I doubt there is a new maker since customers still waiting for their raw casts and Thomas hasnt been on the boards for about two years now.

No new maker as of my last visit with GH. The molds were packed up and ready to go. As far as I know they are still sitting there.

This is nuts. Disappearing is one thing. But when you have money from folks. Wow.

WHAT IS IT WITH PROP COMMUNITY?! WHY DO FOLKS ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS BITE OFF WAY MORE THAN THEY CAN DEAL WITH?!

There is some pervasive psychosis particular to this hobby.

I have never done a run of anything because I know that I do not have the time to do it right or wrong or anywhere in between.

Because once you engage in a 'to order' scenario you become a manufacturer of sorts.
Industries that mass produce items have wastage quotas and in many instances insurance to cover
the losses incurred with wastage / errors / delay.

In mass production you are going to have a wastage ratio. Lets say we were making Vader helmets, for every 5 we made we
are probably going to have at least 1 no good casting.

I think people do start with a good intention of completing runs, but the realities swamp them.
