These are great. What is the typical lead time after the order is placed?

Hi Steve- It usually takes about two weeks to make a pilot figure once I receive your photos. I'll need a jpeg of each side of your face (see chart in my ad)- one from the front and one from the back, and one each from the left and right side.

Thanks, Mike
