    thanks everyone, am really happy you all like it.
    here are some more pics of the spider afetr sanding and smoothing, also the volume jogger and some temporaray nets for the inner side. temporary because i made them just for a ceratin event where the BLACK WIDOW will have her first exhibition in Nürnberg. they will not remain.
    the first paint is also on, alos only for the first exhibition, afterwards it will be totally changed again. so lets let the pics speak for themselves.

    BRAVO!!! What a great build so far. I actually had something along the lines of the same idea with the metal spider web design. You beat me to IT!!!! Excellent craftsmanship with the complexity.

    Looking good abbas. :rock::clap:

    Work in progress & people often don't take a heap of care of taking as high quality a picture as they can during this stage & it really takes extra effort to catch step by step photos especially when the workshop starts getting cluttered up :D but to capture all the things they had to do to get it to it's final look is important for good project logging & he is doing a superb job of doing this, saving the pure eye candy with good lighting for photos & backdrop for the final piece, I believe if the paint job doesn't look as good as expected to some then they might think it's excellent on final shots. ;)

    PC had similar paint job & it looked amazing, this will be no different on the amazing factor IMHO, love the complexity of form done so perfect in your projects & another thing that is superb is it wouldn't cost too much for materials as well as being achievable 100% manual, inspiring creating/modding at play. :dremel::clap:

    u can refer to my post m8 and not to "people" generally ... cause I mentioned the non-perfect paint-job
    I can only think of how hard this structure is cause I have never worked on wood . I really admire abbas-its skills ,knowledge and equipment on this.
    think I have a tiny clue about painting as I have painted few cases myself and I think I know what dripping ,bleeding and orange peal effect is.
    my opinion for the paintjob was for the current state of it. I don't know how it will look after being sanded or buffed or polished or resprayed or anything.
    with all the respect , I posted a personal opinion and u r free to agree or disagree with that. every comment/opinion (positive or negative) shall be posted if it's polite.

    paintjob

    hi everyone, yes the paintjob is just one of the earlier ones. i ould skip to the last one so you could see it, which i think has come out good. but seeing as i experimented and didnt like at least 7 different schemes and techniques, i am posting them because they simply belong to this worklog. i will mention in bold letters when the final on is on and when its posted.
    alle these reds etc were experiments and didnt match the spider lete alone the webs which are by they way also with 9 coats till i was satisfied.
    the good thing is of course, with every layer i gave the case a better priming.
    please everone wait till the final painjob but bear with the preliminary tests too.:D:thumb:

    hi again everyone, firstly i would again like to mention, this case is actually as well as finished, but what you will see are the pics and painjobs that didnt last long, yes they are terrible but they all belong to the worklog which i am posting so that it is complete somewhere round mid august just before the case modding championships in cologne germany. so the final paintjon and the reasons whe the BLACK WIDOW has such a for and the secrets behing it will be in the last one or two posts.
    once again thes are worklog pics and not the painjobs that made the final.i experimented a lot and only the last one was satisfactory for me.
