    If I ever made Documentary about History of Modding, meeting Attila would be first on my check-list.

    I'm a long time lurker, and i had to join up to express my appreciation of this project. A truly inspiring piece of modding, and in my opinion, once again setting the bar against which other mods will be judged.

    I've been following your work since the Cygnus X-1, and each build is a joy to follow and awesome to behold once finished.

    While most of us will never build something like the Cor Leonis, we can all aspire to your standards of quality and artistry no matter the scope of our mod or the strength of our abilities, and that's what modding is all about.

    Thank you for your efforts. As I'm sure you can see, they bring a lot of joy and inspiration to a lot of people. Whatever comes next, we'll be watching.

    Bit-tech should do a feature on their website.

    I'm sure we're all interested in what makes this genius tick and a potted history of what he's done.

    Let's petition bit-tech..:clap:

    I should have thought to go there - DOH!
    Great site and a teaser in the gallery. Can't wait to see what Arrakis & Antares turn out like.

    Just a further thought but I can't help thinking Cor Leonis would look fabulous pictured next to a gun metal grey Aston Martin DBS - they'd go together well.

    Go on, Aston Martin, send him a car!!!

    Thanks mate. :thumb:

    Thank you. :) Yes, no other site I know of uses the rating system as much as bit-tech. In the past it has worked well enough but it seems very broken now. Some people can be very hurt by the low ratings that are given these days and I think it would be better if this system was completely removed. The other thing I find personally jarring is that this system allows unknown people to put down some one else's work without qualification or redress. It's basically allowing some one to sit on a rooftop with a BB gun and take pot shots at passers by. While it was working there was nothing to complain about. Now that it's not, it should be removed.

    Haha, thanks. :hehe:

    Thank you p0Pe. :thumb:

    Thanks. :thumb:

    Thanks Nick. :)

    Thank you kier. :thumb: I look forward to seeing a scratch build from you. :dremel:

    Thank you. :)

    Haha, thanks Bill, you know I'll talk to you anytime. :thumb:

    Thank you phinix. :thumb:

    Welcome to bit-tech and thanks for the nice words. :)

    Aston Martin? Yes please, send me a car. :hehe::lol: You've picked my favorite there. I went to the old Aston factory in Newport- Pagnell a long time ago trying to get in and have a look. But I was turned away as they had a one year waiting list. I did get into the Jag factory at Browns Lane though. :D They had a daily tour so we stayed over night in Coventry and went and had a look at the production line and museum the next day.

    Followed this log for a long time. Gave some critique and suggestions (all were meant well, I swear!) - very happy to see this completed and looking so goddamn AWESOME!

    Oh, and for a bad photographer you're a pretty good one. ;-)

    Tip: if you can, try to contact a local hobby photographers' club. One or several members are likely to be willing in helping you photograph the final product.

    Are you sure he only congrats your work? Imo, his eyes say "I want to kill you mother*cker" (or maybe he wants to kill Attila to get his amazing case for his own :D )

    This really turned out to be stunning. This is by far the most elegant and stylish case I think you've made yet. From just looking at it one would never guess it was not professionally made by CNC in some uber equipped shop. You really have set a standard in modding for perfection.

    Thanks Bill, glad you popped by my site to have a look. :thumb:

    Thank you. :)

    Thanks mate. :thumb: You know I think a repaint is in order sometime in the future. And also a tweak of the interior, to get it to look more like an earlier version. ;)

    Thank you. :)

    Thanks. :)

    Thank you mate. :thumb: We miss you and you're creativity AnG3L, you'll have to start a new project soon. ;)

    I don't vote in this comp but I can easily pick the projects I would like to see in the top three spots. And I'm not afraid to name them. In no particular order; 'Acronym', 'Get a life' and 'The next level'. These are all stunning works of very high quality and creativity at the top of the modding tree today.

    Thank you voigts. :thumb:

    By the way, you can see more pic's here
