This blog was created specifically to keep people updated on Aerosmith's progress. Since Aerosmith is complete, this blog is no longer needed. Facebook and my Yahoo group are updated regularly as far as shipping and other studio news, so please check those places for the latest! Thanks!
Aerosmith began shipping August 31, 2015. I did the clean up on that first batch of 9 and shipped them out. I do a portion of clean up on every copy, even though I have a 3rd party doing a lot of it for me. They have to be shipped out to her then shipped back to me. Once they arrive, I often have a little more clean up to do, then I pack and ship them all out as fast as I can.
The first small batch of about 9 shipped on August 31, 2015.
As of Nov. 2nd, 24 have shipped, 26 are with my prepper and I am waiting for them to be shipped back to me. Those cast cover all of the 2010 orders and into the 2014 orders. However, not all 2010 orders are cleaned and shipped, only 24.
If you ordered in 2014 or later, when you placed your order you were in a Batch number. If you forget what batch you are in, check your Paypal payment. It will say "Aerosmith Batch #...". Each Batch has 10 Aerosmiths in it. It was designed this way so that I can ship out in batches and just post that "Batch #xx has shipped" and you will know yours is on it's way.
All Aerosmiths through #9 in Batch #2 have been cast and are in some stage of the clean up , or have been shipped. This covers all 2010 customer orders and then 9 into the 2014 orders.
Over the past couple months I have been working diligently on getting every Aerosmith in my possession cleaned and shipped. I currently have none in hand. They have either shipped or I am awaiting their return from my prepper.
I have also been working on cleaning up a casting to use for the second mold. The original was not in a good condition to be used for molding. I thought I could clean up a casting much easier, and it's just about ready to have the second mold made. The second mold will just cover the rest of the current orders.
