    Very very nice powder shots. Now that it's all painted it reminds me a lot of that game that came out a while ago called Haze, used a lot of black and orange honeycomb.

    Better to use gloves when handling the finished parts - otherwise you'll get lots of nasty fingerprints all over the newly coated parts, trust me.

    Apart from that, everything is looking sooo sooo sweet. Can't wait to see this put together!

    One of the best designs I've ever seen. And execution on all parts is just mindblowing.

    Hey Mr Phinix-did you allow a powder-jelly-donut in the area when you were taking those lovely pix? Suspicious powder on your powder coating...the little white flecks of stuff on a few of those shots...
    BTW - seriously excellent look, love it. Please finish the assembly!!!!

    Thank you guys, thank you so much for all your comments, I'm really glad you like those photos. believe me, it looks tons better in real live! :) For a last few days I've been coming back from work and keep touching those parts till I fall asleep:D Seriously, it looks so nice, clean and smooth.
    So, it's time for some more explanations - so as you can see there, one main color is satin black, second is dark graphite. There are only 3 panels coated with graphite, left, right and front main panel. Rest is satin black. all those hex covers for main panels are also black. On one of the photos - the one where I hold main left panel in my hand - it looks like its other way around, like darker piece is under and those cover pieces are grey, but those cover pieces on top are satin black and that panel below is graphite. Some other previous photos show that properly.
    I hope you like all those photos, my favourite ones are those with aluminium and acrylic sandwich and lit up:) It looks so amazing in reality, that yellow acrylci is so fiddly to light it up, cause when there is not enough light, it looks liek a grenish thingy, then when properly lighten up, its full yellow/orange... sweet:) I will do my best to attach leds to light it up right way:)

    Looks amazing, can't wait to see it lit up. Let me know if the final design needs any more light!
    Keep up the sterling work, don't rush anything!
