    It reminds me of old European castles with the modern plumbing and utilities fitted to the outside.
    I'd love to see you do a small form factor build, but I fear it would only take you an hour. :lol:

    thx guys, yes this is gonna be a really cultural piece of art again. i think tomorrow i will do the break down after making the gong into the power switch.
    then its all about putty paint n polish.
    well, wirkjing and all that horrible stuff too.

    so, thanks to my mate stefan in usa, who is a japanologist and can actually read what i had on the reservoirs. (chinese) i changed the writing to some engraved chinese wall plates. i couldnt tell which way up or round the chinese caligraphy was supposed to be. so thats changed.
    i set in the acrylic inlays for the top name sign too. paint will dirts them up. i also made many many cabel covers. 100_0186.JPG 100_0187.JPG 100_0188.JPG 100_0189.JPG 100_0191.JPG 100_0192.JPG 100_0193.JPG 100_0194.JPG 100_0195.JPG 100_0196.JPG

    Is that simple glue (Elmer's glue) that you used to fill the lettering? And what did you put underneath so that it didn't leak or seep out?

    well, yes and no. the plexi letters were lasered and fixed by spreading elmers on the back. it turns from white to see through after, so it keepy it in place.
    they will have an external dirty weathered paintjob too so the light should be irregular i hope. too clean would be bad.
    but without a weathered paintjob, an even layer of glue would give you a clean lighting through the plexi
