Hope it comes out soon. But my cash reserves are a little low right now anyway.

When I bought two 1/6 Hot Toys Batman Tumblers back in 2014 they sold for 499.99 each.
I probably won't buy the Hot Toys DOJ since it is expected to go for 1000-1500.oo.
I would rather spend that kind of money on the real build.
The benefit of building the 1:1 mockup is not having to spend a lot of money on the first two build years.
I figure getting to a completed 1:1 mockup is about 60% of the physical build hours. I put in about an hour a day on the non-physical building aspects of my planned DOJ. Your build seems to be progressing steadily and has become quite impressive. How much do you think you have spent on all aspects of your build so far?

Thank you for your kind words. I have actually spent a lot of time working on this, but I haven't kept a specific log unfortunately. When I work on it I am generally putting in 3 to 4 hours at a time. But there have been days I've been able to spend 8 hours on it. I started the physical build last March with some failed attempts to do a model in foam. Then I shifted to trying to figure out the frame work with plastic pipe. And now my model in wood.

As far as researching goes it would be hard to quantify. It is always there.

Hopefully I'll have another update this weekend. I've been doing some good things to the front. Well, good in my opinion anyway.
