    As I promised, here are few photos, some of my favourites from last work. I'm a bit tired and don't have access to my pc, so they don't have watermark yet. Will fix it later.

    First, my favourite - acrylic combs in a nice pose:)

    Here is the Nano Tower during "the glueing procedure":)

    Two done, two to go... mounting ready combs on the Tower...
    Looking pretty in that light...

    And here is almost all aluminium pieces, Nano Tower in parts, flat packing time:)

    HAHA:) Cow?! I have to try and see:)
    Thanks mate!


    Thanks mate!

    Thanks guys!

    Thanks, I spent a lot of time on measuring and aligning them, then glueing together. I have to say they look really nice and I'm surprised they all aligned really good.

    Hey! Mark! Thanks my friend! I'm glad you like it.
    Oh, and you are close! Second purpose of this IS a cheese grater:lol:

    I will give a hint tonight with more photos:)

    Thanks guys!!!

    OK, here is the answer:)
    It is front panel! Yes, looks like a grater, I know - these are all holes for leds that will come behind it.
    Here's how it looks...

    It will be covered with acrylic and then this top aluminium piece with cut out name.
    On Friday I will add rest of the photos, that will show all the latest work and more details.

    So, please stay tuned !!!

    Yeah, it does seem a bit overkill and the pattern the holes are drilled in, baffles me. Eager to see this idea take shape.

    The whole build has been slow, but extremely professional. Phinix you have everyone on the edge of their seats. Chears :dremel:

    Thanks p0Pe! It will look nice, I hope, but there is a lot of soldering to do:)

    Yep! Turn them all to Glasgow:) I'm the reason why they want to build new nuclear power plant near here;)

    It looks like an overkill, but it will be fine. It won't look like a Christmas tree, I promise! ;)
    Pattern is a bit weird, it's because I will use SMD led strips, smalest piece will ahve 3 leds, that is why they look a bit uneven, I have photos showing it all with leds, will add them soon, Friday I think. That should put some light on the whole thing... A lot of light I say! :D


    Thank you very much! Its great to see you guys like this build same as I do. Thanks for your support and stay tuned! :thumb:

    Good job! For a scot that's amazing! (joking :p)

    Looking forwards to seeing this finished. Hope you made a reference on how to put that big pile of bits back together.

    I'm not a scot, but i believe that would be amazing for one (also joking:) )

    Yep, I have it all in my head, each piece is unique so putting all togheter is pretty straight forward. It has to, after all that time spent on desinging it and makeing all these pieces, you remember it all.
