    I am back for a new project...

    This project is a new step for me, it will not be a WoodPC

    I have some Hobbies.... computers, movies, cars and ... Science Fiction...

    I always wanted to build my own StarWars and Star Trek models.

    I read forums like StarshipBuilders and Studioscale , I know techniques only in theory.

    The project will not be a Studioscale model... too hard and too expensive...

    The original studio scale model :

    The computer part will be a Atom based mother board and a Shutte power supply...
