    I have checked it out with the Bosses and some other projects did take priority but we have the sample being machined at the moment :O

    ETA is around 3-4 weeks as its shipping by sea.

    OK guys so a 16 page technical drawing landed on my desk this morning :D

    and production has started! We should see the first sample for assessment in 3-4 weeks time

    to show how detailed this sort of thing is this is the measurement for the mesh holes lol, can't give to much more away at this point.

    Sorry for the delay guys. Worth the wait I think! Hopefully we can take a closer look at it soon.

    Decided to go public with my case design SketchUp models. Feel free to download and build, if you have the resources. Be warned, these files are very large! Download from here. Enjoy! :thumb:

    Can't remember if you did get a metal mock-up going. Should seriously get in touch with someone with a CNC if not. I know Editor22 has one and he's in the UK too :D

    If you need some help getting technical drawings / SolidWorks models made I could help you with that.

    Thanks guys for your generous offers, but I have come to the conclusion that it is very unlikely that I will ever be in a position to build this case myself. It is very difficult for me to spend time designing, or pursuing any interests come to that. This is why I have decided to put my design in the public domain, in the hope that someone has the time and resources to take up the challenge.

    Another month has past. Still waiting to see Snowy's case. Can't Phobya provide any photos of the case in development? A small taste of what's to come would be better than nothing!
