Really glad it made it, just in the nick of time a well! Wasn't looking likely a few weeks ago. I might try and pick up a copy when it's printed.

Kellerman is a collectible in its own right, I doubt anyone buys it these days as a reference guide

Good point.
I’m not going to be selling mine any time soon.

@edd_jedi
It might be worth contacting them now if you do want one as they have said that others are looking at buying more books and before they confirm this is possible they want to look at print numbers.

I have the kellerman book which i bought from amazon back in the day for around £30.00. I was quite surprised when i checked the price on completed items on ebay! :o

I backed another project for a Modern Star Wars collecting guide which has run into numerous delays including covid.

One of their biggest oversights was the fact that the proofs they signed off wern't calibrated for actual printing press.

On their first run the printed samples looked nothing like the proofs as the colours had shifted on many of the images. This ment they had to work through thousands of images, retouching them to match what they had signed off.

I think it was 18 months since it was successfully funded.

Congrats on getting over the project over the line, really looking forward to receiving the book. :)
