Update 10 - Delivery Day!
3 months ago – Mon, Nov 21, 2022 at 03:02:11 PM

Hi Everyone!

It's Monday, and also delivery day has officially begun! It looks like we were all clear for going live with Backerkit, most of the surveys have now been completed, and you should all be receiving an email blast with your digital reward landing page very soon!

Everything is included in a single .ZIP file. I have gotten away from using .RAR whenever possible because I know those archives are a bit more of a pain to use. The files are organized by sections in named folders, but for extra help and information during construction, check the printing notes and quick photo guides included.  

UPDATE: Please note some of the file names are large to indicate more information. Windows has a limit  of 260 characters in path names, so if the zip file is placed in a  folder the files contained inside the zip file may exceed this limit and fail to extract. It is best to unzip from Desktop or downloads, or a root directory to avoid this error when unzipping large files to avoid this error code. An additional quick fix is to skip the file that is bringing the error for a long path, and to copy to clipboard and paste these files individually. 

I will be available to assist anyone who still has outstanding surveys, or needs help with any rewards access, technical problems or unforeseen issues not mentioned. Please let me know if you have any questions or need support at my email ArchangelDesign3D at Gmail.com or through a Kickstarter message or comment. 

I am so excited to finally get these files out to you all and see everyone printing! If you have pictures of your builds, custom painting,  and want to share them with me, please send them over my Facebook page or Instagram! 

Also, I will be available for troubleshooting, but if I do not have any additional updates in the near future, I want to wish you all a very happy holiday season and happy new year! 

Thank you all so much for your kindness and support, making this dream project of mine a success! 

Sincerely, 

Michael 

Update 9 - Wednesday Brief: Surveys now sent
3 months ago – Wed, Nov 16, 2022 at 11:48:47 PM

Hi Everyone!

A quick update for everyone on Wednesday here. As of today, everything is complete in Backerkit and all surveys have been sent out successfully!  I am waiting to hear back on one more item from their support team before distribution, but we are on schedule, so it shouldn't be too much longer now for delivery.  

  • If you have already received and completed your survey, you are all set for file delivery, and will get a private link to the downloads in your inbox as soon as they go live.  
  • If you have not received your survey yet, please check the email account used during the campaign. If you are unable to find it, please let me know, and I can send you a direct link to your survey in a Kickstarter message or an email sent to ArchangelDesign3D at Gmail.com. 
  • Also, I am available at any time to answer any questions regarding this campaign at the above email address and through the message and comments on Kickstarter. 

I appreciate your support and patience, and will have another update for everyone in the next few days. Thank you all, stay tuned for the file release coming up! 

Sincerely, 

Michael 

Update 8 - Surveys Starting and Downloads coming soon
3 months ago – Mon, Nov 14, 2022 at 05:53:11 AM

Hello Everyone! 

Just a quick Sunday update; some of you will start seeing surveys delivered today as the final steps of Backerkit setup are now completed. 

Everything has been approved by their team, and I have begun the test survey release which will be sent to a randomized group of backers to make sure there are no issues. Once we can confirm everything is working the way it should, a giant survey blast will be sent out to everyone, so don't worry if you don't see yours today. It will arrive sometime this week to the email you have listed!  

Once surveys are all delivered, I will begin the next step, locking the surveys in place, and then the best part,  file distribution for direct download!  I am hoping we may even be able to get the files out ahead of schedule, so stay tuned for another update towards the end of this week. As mentioned, the direct downloads will be available forever on your Backerkit landing page, so you will always have access to them.  

If you do not see your survey in your email by Friday, November 18, 2022, please contact me directly on Kickstarter, or through email at ArchangelDesign3D at Gmail.com, and I can get you started, or send you a direct link to your page. 

Thank you all; more info to come in just a few days! 

Sincerely, 

Michael 

Update 7- Thank You, Backers!
3 months ago – Fri, Nov 11, 2022 at 10:02:42 PM

Hello Everyone!

Thank you all so much for your support of this Kickstarter campaign, and making this project a fantastic success! 

This idea of a large scale ship hangar bay has been something I have been wanting to build and work on for more than two years; I am beyond excited that I was able to finally complete it with my full vision of how it would work realized with your support! 

The nature of this design was much more complex and challenging than most of my previous models, and every step of this process a true labor of love and creativity that I am truly excited to share with everyone. As with all my pieces, this one holds a lot of fun memories for me personally, and I hope that everyone has as much fun building it as I did! 

I am very eager to get these files sent out as soon as I possibly can, so everyone can start printing, but as mentioned in the previous update, there is usually about a 14 day wait period between Kickstarter processing, and Backerkit getting everything approved before they let me hit the send button, 

The files are already prepared, packaged and ready for printing so it should be a very streamlined and easy process once we can get everyone's surveys sent. 

I will continue to work with the Backerkit team this week as we get closer to the distribution week. And as always, if you need any help, have any questions or need additional support, I am always available and will respond to comments, email, and direct messages on Kickstarter as soon as I possibly can. 

Thank you all so much for your kindness, shared excitement and support of this unique project! :) I will have more information for everyone as soon I can,  so stay tuned for more updates and info to come! 

Sincerely, 

Michael

Update 6 - Campaign Closes Wednesday - Backer Surveys and Other Info
3 months ago – Sun, Nov 06, 2022 at 03:04:44 PM

Hi Everyone!

Hope you're all having a great weekend! It's Sunday, and I have a short update for everyone today. We are about 3 days from campaign coming to a close, which means files will be sent within a few weeks! 

Also, it occurred to me I could print my control tower reduced to just 40 percent this week so I could showcase it before the campaign ended. It looks pretty great even small, and very 15 mm scale! 

As I finish up everything in these final days of the campaign period, Backerkit is almost ready for surveys, which means those will be coming shortly.

As with most campaigns that use this style of Pledge Manager system, there is an approximate 14 wait period between Kickstarter processing and the Backerkit team approving everything for release, getting surveys out, and then I can hit distribute on everything! 

With Backerkit, the files will remain available forever on your rewards page, which was one of the questions I received. 

As for merchant pledges, I have also included some additional information in the survey regarding promotional images you can use, and also promotion features for merchants through my own website if you are interested in utilizing those as well!  For anyone who has any questions on their survey, please get in touch with me through email or a direct message on Kickstarter. 

Thank you all so much for your support; until our next update, have a wonderful week and stay tuned! 

Sincerely, 

Michael
