great update, this is a thing of beauty
mmm... that little angle... such a complex task, such a fine detail. amazing!!
Truly awesome. I'm shocked people don't throw metalworking tools into your yard at night to see what you can do with them.
maybe they did and we now get to see the result
fantastic work Atilla
Excellent work on the side panel .
Thanks. I don't know about 'evil' but I am aiming for an aggressive look.
Thanks Craig, yep the old brain is getting stretched. This is nothing compared to what has to be done to the top of the doors. A much more complicated part that curves laterally, curves up the side and over the top, curves from front to back and needs to be strong enough to support the entire panel and the hinge assembly.
Thanks, I have a catalog from a big tool warehouse and I'm always flicking through it and pretend buying. An English wheel, a pneumatic hammer, and a stretcher/shrinker would help me so much with these panels. I'll just keep dreaming.
Awesome work your manual fabrication skills are mighty impressive
You my friend are the master of scratch builds
Can you give me a workshop please
Sweet design, bugger to build
make a plaster mold and use 1, 1.5mm sheet and heat form it, then attach strips for rigidity where needed with braze or tig weld.
You will need about 460-480˚C and a steel roller and some patience and luck
Heck thats not too much for you
AND THE MASTER OF ALUMINUM FABRICATION GOES TOOOOOOOOOO Congrats Attila!
And as a side note: I though I had premature ejaculation, and I haven't been on Bit-Tech in awhile and it has since gone away. Well now it's back and I realize it's because your metalwork is similar to porn.
My word you have an insane eye for detail.
Thanks for the tip Craig. I have a couple of hammers, a vice and some panel beating anvils. I'll see what I can bash together.
Thanks Robby, and glad that you are dropping by from time to time.
Think i've fallen in love!!
Loving the new-age artisan work!
One tip (you probably already found out) about your grinding wheel: moving to the edge of the sandpaper cirkel the motion gets quicker thus the material gets ground down faster - got me in some trouble sometimes!
thought there were an update! Curse you!
I like it ..... I'll take 5 of them please
It's build's like this that are making my creative juices flow ........ eeer
Hey Attila I hope you're still working on this?
It's been a while since your last update and I can't wait to see the finished article from my fave modder...
No, I'm not working on any PC builds at the moment. Now that I'm fit again the wife has lumped a whole heap of chores on me. But fear not, work will resume on cor leonis in the new year.
Haha, know the feeling, I used to get hat every spring just as I wanted to start modding.
Awesome news & wow a 2 year project from Attila, can't even begin to imagine how sweet this will end up, already looks super hot & incredible .
