    Nothing,Monsoon sent me one after reading my (extensive) acrylic 101 on OCN,Im glad they want to help out,Monsoon have been really innovative with the range of fittings and tooling for acrylic users.

    Indeed!
    The kit was well worth the wait.

    The res design is currently with PARVUM,they have a free reign to do whatever for ease of manufacture

    A clam shell body is looking likely as 25mm acrylic is cheaper by far than the thicker varieties.

    If you are ever in the London area then you should look them up for a cuppa.

    Hey BNeg, I didn't even know about those bending guides, looks like they would be useful - I think you just cost me money!!

    I like that,you could even print the mandrels like one of the OCN guys did,worked well from what we saw.


    So the first coat for the stencil is done,an opaque white,the next step is to touch in the sprues and then a dusting of Pearl white to give it some sparkle.

    Sorry for this one,its a bit wonky...

    [​IMG]

    Once that all dried off then I am going to trace round the logo with a Rotring tech pen in black.

    Im debating whether to track the logo over the buttons too,these buttons are not staying as they dont match and I dont like the red dot in the reset button....Im trying to find some touch sensitive buttons but thats proving difficult.

    Nice touch, but I can guess why you want to change them. Fingers removing the paint and future rotation probably won't help the situation.

    You get it.....plus it looks a bit....contrived? It doesnt sit well with me for some reason.

    Im regretting doing the paint so early.......

    Still,im hoping one of these behind some painted plexi in the holes,flush mounted,may yet save the day here and ......moar touch activated things.
