Note that he says the mount is for the G model only so take that into account if it's important to you. You can see the F model mount in the original thread for the product. Karl H posted a nice rendering of what the mount should look like.

This is true. I will be offering it with the F type mount as soon as I can get it into production.

I'm grateful to Karl H for the info and reference.

I'm also grateful for all the input and help from the LSP community.

Thanks

He indicated that he'd be sending some to Sprue Brothers this week.  I believe there are some going to Hannant's as well but I'm not entirely sure on that.

Someplace I have the base plate with dimensions. The drawings have several variations but the one with the dimensions will be fine for the scales we are working  in.

 

Robertmro, if you want these in PDF format, let me know>

Thanks for the compliment Mark.

I studied art at Pratt Institute 1968-72 then spent many years in tv commercials, network broadcasts design, movie title design, visual effect (mainly as a matte artist) and finally a short stint as a college professor at Savannah Cooege of Art and Design. Alas, I'm a jack of all trades but a master of none.

So a quick product card design was easy fun.
