    I liked all of them except the guitar....
    Not sure why someone would do that (it definitely doesn't look pretty or interesting to me)

    If the guitar still works, and you can fit a pickup, I'm doing one for myself!

    I think i have to give it to djayness this month, i really like the look of the project and it's one of the least fussy looking acrylic builds i've seen. I've also enjoyed seeing the progression over time from his earlier builds to this one

    Tarator for me. Anyone who hand-makes their own screws deserves a MOTM! :dremel:

    As always their all great mods.
    But I keep getting drawn back to the A380.
    Grats to all on the nominations.

    dam this is so hard, I'm really impressed with Achron,A380 and Epic PC X. I love the aesthetic of the A380 case, it's almost jetsons. I'm going to vote for him because he's spent the least money out of the three I've shortlisted!

    Seriously OMG, which one, is this the toughest month to judge ever or what, honestly, can't belive I've got to pick only 1 :waah: :jawdrop:.

    Acronym
    I originally threw a stupid wobbler on Achron's project log (stupid me) when my head wasn't so clear thinking, I came around to the fact cnc has been around & is there for all to do if they learn heaps of info and can access the machines, kinda taking over in modding now it's a fine example of some of what he has learned in engineering, I like it a lot, and respect it all the more as it's all done by Achron, cnc master :thumb:.

    A380 Mod
    Not followed it, but from the pictures it looks really nicely done, a very polished mod, and I love old school modding, you know the type that most can take up as a hobby :p.

    Bärsärkar-gång
    Another epic mod, I've followed this one & it is heaving with sweet details, some hidden and the dedication to keeping only brass parts, making his own screws was quite something, not too much cnc plenty of skilled manual work in this mod, the leather work was a great touch too, I highly rate this piece, it's excellent & unique.

    COMTAR
    Nice, it is the to still function as a guitar bit I'd like to see & I am a fan of to be built as cheaply as possible, but honestly being up against the others in this months MOTM, not really there for me, sorry.

    Epic PC X Series
    Not followed it, only just found out about it, so had to have a look through this awesome looking project log, and what can I say Awesome & Epic :D. I really like the fact all the water cooling blocks are all made by him :thumb:.

    Steampunk from RUSSIA
    Ok, I have to admit this is my favourite of the bunch, I know it is nowhere near finished but since it has been rushed into MOTM prematurely like so many seem to, I'm going to have to vote for it because I just know this is going to be absolutely stunning when it all comes together, so far all manual work with fantastic looks :dremel::clap::thumb:.

    Really tough call this month as there is:
    Steampunk from RUSSIA being my favourite.
    Bärsärkar-gång which I my 2nd favourite here.
    Acronym for blowing my mind with the crazy cnc skills he posseses.
    Epic PC X Series for a very very well done case with all custom blocks.
    Would have prefered to see these spread out over coming months as they are all awesome mods, but can only pick 1 so I'm going with Steampunk from RUSSIA :clap:.

    Oh man, this might be one of the hardest MotM decisions I've ever had to make. They are all amazing! I must ponder this for a bit...
