WMD Part 1 by G-gnome: digitally remastered.



http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/2005...g-gnome/1.html

He's back in the workshop, and nearing completion of this epic case mod. To celebrate that fact, we have laboured hard & long to convert all 24 original pages to the new site's formatting.

You can find the original Discussion thread here: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=76216 but all fresh questions should be posted in here.

Thanks for the nice comments.

I should have the project finished in a few weeks time. I've been working on it almost full-time the last month or so. The finished case will be quite a transformation from how it appears at the end of Part-1.

Plenty of surprises in store...

You so need to license that case design to a manufacturer. It could be renamed Weapons of Mass Production or something...

I know I'd buy one.

Weapons of Mass Production
Now THAT is funny stuff

Unfortunately, like Orac, WMD is destined to be a unique, one-off work of art. Not just because it's hand built over hundreds and hundreds of man hours - the material cost alone brings tears to one's eyes. Did you read the part where those fancy clips cost £17 each, and he needed TEN of them... that's £170, or the entire cost of a Shuttle right there. The laser cutting bill is hundreds and hundreds of dollars too

I lost count the number of people who wanted to buy Orac, or have Pete build them a replica. Not one of them grasped that even at a pathetic £5 per hour, the labour alone would be over £1000. Depending on whether you're in London or other parts of the country, you pay maybe £50-80 an hour for a mechanic to service your car. Apply the same rate to the genius of G-gnome, and you'd be staring at £10,000 plus materials.

For the truly mod-addicted, it's a labour of love, not profit.

But wouldn't it be faster for him to build a second one since the planning is already done and he knows the parts fit how they're designed now?

Wasn't much of a fan of ORAC3, but I love them WMD. Can't wait to see it finished, would really love to see it in person though.

Yes, but it will still take hundreds of man hours to construct everything. Don't forget that Pete has polished every piece of metal that has gone in to WMD so far, and I'm sure he'll be polishing everything else that is 'to go in' to the finished case too.
