    Yes, yes I am. Looking forward to seeing more. The case design pics of this were awesome, so seeing it fleshed out is something to look forward to!

    Mod on!

    As with many, the best I can do is some sleeving. Would never be able to do something like this. Best of luck, look forward to updates.

    Thats a thing of beauty, you'll need big desk so you can display it well ( so sad that so many great cases get plonked on the floor or under a desk where they are difficult to appreciate ). Will be watching for sure :)

    I thought the steampunk version you entered into the sketchup competition was good, but this takes it to another level. Loving the material choices, if you pull this off it will almost certainly be a MOTY contender!!!

    Ok, lets start :)

    Cutting styrodur boards ( 60 mm thick )

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Gluing them the parts together with double sided tape ( on styrodur it sticks really strong, propably rather the styrodur would break that the tape would come loose )

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cutting the Base boards out of 4mm Multiplex

    [​IMG]

    Giving them a quick sand and some air to get rid of the dust

    [​IMG]

    Sticking the styrodur to the baseplates

    [​IMG]

    Getting a bit of pressure on it :D

    [​IMG]

    Finished !

    [​IMG]

    ok, lets chuck them on the router :)
