    Once again, very nice work. The Finish came out great. Looks like it won't be much longer till the final.

    I really like what you did to the floor of the case, a very nice effect with the lettering.

    Love the res! As always, fantastic work dude. Not quite sure how you come up with these designs, but they're inspirational.

    Thanks brother! :)

    Thanks buddy, the designs took me a long time till I manage to create a basic scheme and work on it. Everything is based on circle as I explained at the beginning of this worklog! :)

    lol that should have read 'looked awesome' d'oh!

    but at least you got what I meant - I blame it on all the packing I've been doing prior to moving house!

    So back again for a small update as I am approaching the finish line!
    No comments on the pictures as I am about to finish as I dont have something to explain
    further as the most parts are assembly process etc.
    So here today you will see a technique I used on the engravings with silver leaves.
    This technique makes the silver hard as the powder coating but it took me 2 days to finish it.
    I decided to go with a gothic look on the quotes and make them look like actual simple hand drawing instead of a fancy font. I always like to play with various styles in one mod like this one. Gothic, Industrial, Artistic. All combined in one.
    Also forgive me for the dusts etc it was too windy outside today and no matter what I did I couldnt get rid of the dust, leaves etc lol :p
    Let the pictures talk !

    Sweet polishing, did you use a standard polishing mop for an angle grinder to polish it?

    It's amazing how a bit of colour pulls it all together so well, I love it when it get to this stage.

    Thanks mate! :)

    Thanks LN lol I ll find some time to make comments :)

    This was done by a pro but I wasnt super excited even if its good enough. My polishing trials came to an end when I faced some deep scratches so I took the pieces to a pro to be done.
    The pieces required some heavy sanding as they were deeply scratched so you understand lol :p

    Thanks mate ! Indeed! :thumb:
