    Taking photos of this case has been a struggle.

    Mainly because of how much mirrored acrylic there is, so between the photographers and me , somewhere around 50 photos taken, it doesn't sound like a lot, but when your striving for the perfect photo in the perfect environment,... it is.

    So many photos had either the photographers or me in the photo or the lighting wasn't right, or something was blurred where it shouldnt be, so this is best out of those 50.

    You will notice that they all aren't from the same photo shoot, but over a period of time.
    And they still arent how I would have hoped them to be, but as my folks mainly take photos of landscapes and wildlife, this is the best they could achieve.

    Good news is we are going to build a small studio to cater for my case mods, and my next project wont consist of as much mirrored acrylic or polished aluminium, which will make the next series of final photos a lot easier to take, but that's another story for another time.

    Wow, that's a mind-boggling amount of detail in there :jawdrop:
    This is probably the best looking case I've seen in this forum for a loooong time.

    Awesome! :clap:

    Dude, I'm really impressed by the patience and skill that you had to carve out all those designs YOURSELF. Wow! Major respect for that. The build looks great.

    You do need a bending brake, though. They make things so easy compared to hammering away which damages the metal in the process. This one only cost me 50$ on ebay:

    It took me about 5 minutes to bend that piece, including measuring.
