Anybody know what the status is on the long awaited Gorgo kit from Monarch?
Knew he was a one man show, but didn't know his profession. That's a pretty demanding job to say the least, surprised he's able to put out any kits, let alone the high quality one's he produces!You guys do know that Scott McKillop, I believe that is his name, is pretty much a one man operation and he is also a practicing physician?
I think I read something on FB a week or more ago. Scott indicated that production and mold wise everything is a go but that the guy who does his instructions has not completed writing/drawing up the instruction sheet. Is that a Gary Nakamura or something? I wrote it was odd that all the stuff I would have thought was the hardest to get ready is done and only the instruction sheet is holding up release. Almost sounds absurd doesn't it? I could probably build it without instructions!
Don't exaggerate....it was only 18 years!!!Wasn't it the instructions (or the box) that delayed the Ghost for 19 years?
Word! :thumbsup:I couldn't care less about the delays. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I'd rather have it right than have it right now.
Some of the delay may have been caused by the slow production process in China as Mcdougall suggested but you're correct as well. I remember vividly a post (from Mcdougall if I'm not mistaken) informing us that the kit was ready but the instruction sheets were not and that was causing the hold up. I remember this because I had the same conversation with a buddy then as this post is expressing now. At any rate, I feel the same way about Monarch's kits as most others do and am looking forward to the next release...whenever that may be!Wasn't it the instructions (or the box) that delayed the Ghost for 19 years?
