3/24/17 UPDATE: As you can see… you still CAN’T see any photos here on my Uncertain-
2/3/17 UPDATE: I just received an update from the inventor / engineer that's working on producing limited production quantities of his excellent benchtop plastic injection molding machine that I'm on a waiting list for. He’s having similar problems like I ran into trying to find a competent machine shop here on The Big Island of Hawaii to make a benchtop plastic injection molding machine for me, to my specs. The first batch of gears have proven to be unacceptable, so the company has agreed to make another smaller batch for him to test. In the meantime, it’s like being in the military… “hurry up and wait”.
Even so, I’m using this time to focus on other critical parts of the complete kit. I just got what I hope is the final revision for my first 1:24 scale “little Steve” for the kits, and we’re already well into developing the second figure.
1/1/17: UPDATE: I’m not just working on an All New And Improved Uncertain-
10/27/16: UPDATE of an update -
I received an update from the inventor / engineer in another country that's working on producing limited quantities of his excellent benchtop plastic injection molding machine that I'm on a waiting list for. He calls it an injector. He wrote:
The injector is going quite well. My targets is as follow:
Working Alpha injector by 1 December.
Building Beta injectors for the early advance orders During January.
I am sorry for the slow progress but it is not due to any lack of effort.
10/11/16: UPDATE... Well sort of... but not exactly... as in yes and no... and at
the same time, most definitely... I'm reporting/leaking that I'm very happily in
discussions with a very helpful engineer in a BIG company about a very viable option
for having a very cool ONE-
That's all I'm going to say, coz I'm NOT going to say anything more about it other
than the status... no details whatsoever... only the status... even after I'm producing
and mailing kits. More to come as the wind-
Cross your fingers, everybody :)
10/1/16: Jim M White just asked on my main Facebook page: "And are these kits going to be available in the next year?" I replied: "It's sure looking like it's only a few months away now, the way things are coming together. I'll know a lot more when the inventor that's working on production models of his bench top injection molding machine starts shipping them, and I get mine. I'm counting on being in full production by Spring so that I can afford to move back to the mainland in the Summer! Stay tuned..."
9/29/16: YOU SHOULD SEE MY NEW "MELT PUMP"... Your what?
I'm getting more and more excited with every update that the inventor sends out about his automatic, benchtop plastic injection molding machine. I just received another email update from him yesterday with very good news about how he's upgraded the "melt pump" :)
If you don't know what a "melt pump" is, too bad... Because I do... and this is HOT news... Literally :)
9/20/16: EMBOSSING POWDER!
One of the many elements that I’ve been researching for my Uncertain-

9/1/16: PLASTIC INJECTION MOLDING MACHINE UPDATE
The engineer/inventor who coincidentally recently
developed a relatively small plastic injection molding
machine (most of them are HUGE), much like I was
working on, is making steady progress towards limited
scale production of them. He sends me updates at
least once a month, and sometimes every week. I'm
absolutely not going to say or show anything too
specific about it because as I've said...
it's a TRADE SECRET! :)
Even so, all of you who have supported my project
and placed advance orders deserve some sort of
updates other than me just writing stuff... so...
against my better judgement... here's one of several
photos he sent me last week. This one is of of some
of the 1/4" thick, laser cut, 304 stainless steel and aluminum parts for one section of the machine. I'll try to keep posting some stuff like this when I consider it to be safe to do so.
9/7/16: WHY 3D PRINTING ISN'T GOOD FOR MODEL BUILDING
I keep getting told that I should use 3D printing for my Uncertain-
PLA is said to not shrink at all. That’s one reason why many 3D printers and operators like using it. However... PLA actually does shrink, just not as much. It’s approximately 2%, again depending on the PLA filament being used.
All that said, if you're making a complete model with a 3D printer, and don't mind the sanding, then all the parts should shrink about the same amount. For this use, 3D printing can be a great tool for a scratch build model builder.
8/15/16: I'm very uplifted by the way things are falling into place lately for my
As a bonus 'Thank You' for all of you who have believed in me, and supported me,
and placed an advance order by the time I start mailing them… you will get exclusive,
advance notice and discounts for every model kit and diecast car that I produce from
then on... whether it's an Uncertain-
8/11/16: SORRY… MR SCOTT IS VERY BUSY AND CAN'T BE DISTURBED
I've been spending WAY too much time being "Mr. Nice Guy", for WAY too long, and
answering the same, seemingly endless questions… over and over and over… about The
Since I don't have very many "feeling good enough" hours every month when I can properly
focus on critical stuff for moving my Uncertain-
7/31/16: A ONE PIECE Body is a TOP Priority for my Uncertain-
I was disappointed... and very disappointed... with how the Monogram Uncertain-
As I've mentioned many times, It's a top priority for me to produce a one-
The photos below show the difference between how the Uncertain-
Note how flat the side (window) openings and rear window are on the original kit.
