I am available for adoption too!!!
Awsome that you're on it again!
Awesome project mate your skills are stunning.The garden mod also looks awesome.
Wow, your work still continue ton inspire mine, really happy to see some news of the Cor Leonis
Attila i think ''Cor Leonis'' is the best project i have ever seen...keep up the fantastic job!
This is too good for us mere mortals...
Huzzah! And monday instantly improves!
Yes, very good to see you back at it. Also nice to see you modding your brake. It's almost like getting a brand new brake with that newly cut-and-milled clamp, eh?
Only thing I'm wondering about: You already riveted the sidepanel together - aren't you going to have it anodized later? If yes, is everything in that panel made from aluminium? Otherwise you'll have to take it apart again, because eventual steel-parts will NOT care too good about the whole anodizing preocess, trust me. Or will you have the side panel glass blasted (with natural anodizing/oxidation taking place afterwards), or perhaps even painted somehow? In short: how are your plans for styling the exterior of this case?
Attila you are the king of scratch build alu pc chassis!!
Great work mate
Awesome work, I'm glad it was a Sunday that I read the project log through from start to finish !
P.S. I'm feeling inspired to not buy another case, ever !
Still remember the Cygnus X1 like it was yesterday. How you're doing Attila? Looks amazing, can't wait to see what's in store for us next.
Thanks for the replies everyone.
@nutman The side panels as you see them are really just frames/supports for a GRP skin. Some of the metal will be removed. The exterior will be painted.
I'm half way through making the second side panel. When I've made some progress with the next step (the hinges), I'll post an update.
Huzzah! Good news to start the week off

Hey Attila, can you please put a update tag in your forum post so we know when you update and so I'm not needlessy always clicking to see if you did an update??!!
I've decided to update here because these darn fangled hinges are pretty tricky to work out. So best get an update out there, even if it is a small one.
The second side panel was made up....
All riveted except for the stainless screws along the bottom.
And we have a pair.
Now apart from the hinges, this area across the top will take some figuring.
But at least it's starting to resemble that 'fuzzy' image.
It's so beautiful
It might be a lot of time underway, but it's worth the wait!
That's some real nice work Attila, funny geometry I've only had a tiny taste of & it's so tricky to get how you want it, this is looking perfect though. rep
Wow, like the wedge shape with flares. Nice work mate.
