    I decided NOT to vote for slippery once. Then i saw NS-5 (seriously guys, watch the video), and decided he was better then Usonian anyway. THEN i saw lighning McMod. That thing is fantastic! Creative modding, great theme... fantastic!

    My vote would have gone for Epic PC's Carbine Series if only for that sick led-barcode bit, but the workmanship on Charge is out of this world (also, who would mess with the Freeman?).

    All are doing great work though, keep it up guys!

    :hehe: It is nice & awesome :D.

    I'd vote for all of you but that would be silly :D, I like Frenkie's traditional modding & really like what he's based the mod around, I like Dans awesome new CNC case which looks top quality & has some sweet features, I really like Jeffs sweet renovation of a mozart, Skips outstanding intricate & stylish looks inspired by cool architecture, kier's kickass kids mod :), Rankine's interesting good looking mod.

    But I think I made it a rule to myself to vote no more than 3 with this multivote so I pick.
    Epic PC's Carbide Series by Djayness
    Saturday Night Special by bulldogjeff
    Usonian by slipperyskip

    Oh the heck with it I'm bending my rule & adding Charge! by Frenkie :D

    By the way the copper ruler in the prizes rocks :D:thumb:.

    Behold the most Epic Measurement Tool ever made for PC Modders, PC Mod Ruler cnc milled from 1/8" thick pure Copper!

    We wanted MOTM Winners to have something special to commemorate their victory. Something to show off to your friends and family. "Where did you get this?!"...It's already been the topic of conversation at my shop. I liked the first one so much, that I kept it for myself. It weighs a pound, so everyone's eyes widen when they pick it up. I love sponsoring bit-tech's MOTM :D

    Each Ruler takes 45 minutes to make...

    The Copper rulers are covered with cutting oil before the CNC mill engraves the measurements.

    Don't get me started on those goddamn poison headcrabs. My friend's kettle makes the EXACT same rattling/hissing sound when she turns it on and it makes me jump IRL! The most terrifying video game enemy I've ever faced.

    I appreciate the nomination. I'm putting the final touches on it now. Preliminary final photos should be posted tomorrow so we'll see if Usonian is actually worthy of this nomination. I hope so. Thanks bit-tech. I'm truly honored.

    After voting for Jeff, I realised it was multi-vote! Doh! :wallbash:

    Sorry to those that missed my other vote(s).

    Woah such a close call, four within 2 votes.

    Tough decision, especially as some of the logs are still at such early stages :/

    OMG, I've just logged on and seen my build in MOTM. I really didn't expect that to happen. Thank you Bit-Tech for including my build with the other great projects. Can I vote for myself...lol
