thanks matem more to come over the weekend if not earlier.
thanks bit-tech, it truly an honor. i am far from finished yet..much more to come
hi guys, sorry for the delay, but i am sure you will see some new pics tonight, and thanks bit-tech for the nomination to motm.
Can't wait to see more! Just out of interest how much does this weigh? I can imagine it being fairly substantial.
So ridiculously epic using layers & taking it to much higher levels, perfect rig for watching Noodle Easterns.
hi postmangav, glad you like it thanks,
well actually i must weigh it but it is certainly still under the 10 or 12 kilo mark, i hope.
will of course weigh it when all the hardware etc.. is in it again
still sooooooooooooooo much to do on it.
hey waynio, thanks again, is still sooooooo much to do. over easter i will have more time
and gett some big updates online too.
its time i started getting some color on it as well, certain parts can already be painted.
I'd like to say right now that I am really impressed with your work and how awesome it looks. I look forward to you continuing your project log on here and seeing what more work you do to this masterpiece.
thanks taylor glad you like it and thanks for the motivating words. I will be carrying on with the samurai now as soon as the eater hols start seeing as i dont have customers them.
cant wait to get some color on this.
more t come soooooooooooooooooon
hi everyopne, sorry forn the delay in posting, easter greetings to all and will be updating as soon as i am back in germany on thursday. cannmot wait to get back into my workshop

in dire need of an update
sorry about the delay, had so much work in the last weeks, still need a few days till i can update here, but when i do, it will be a big one, thats promised..
hi guys, sorry for the silence here, a new post is coming soon, just bringing this up front here again
RETURN OF THE SAMURAI
hi guys, really sorry for the silence but have been so very busy. but here it it, i want to get this baby finished by mid august.
SAMURAI SACRILEGIUM CONTINUED..
so here i did some more work on the bokken and made a quick click in system for the samurai camera helmet cover.
apart from that i also made some corner parts instead of the one i once made, dont like them now, they were too bulky.
with the click in system i can take the helmet off and on and must not fix it then.
the stirrups as i call them are all screwed and the screws will be decked by the fibres that they will hold.
and then, as if it would not be bad enough that i am way behing my building plan, the monitor didnt work anymore, **** **** ****. so i had to either find a new one with exactly the same inner frame dimensions or make a reducer frame and fit in another.
it was the weekend so even though i did manage to find a samsung that fitted, here is the reducer with a 19" V7 tftf. am glad i have found the real 22" sized tftf though, the smaller one wouldnt have looked right.
seeing as the paint will start soon, i have started sticking in all the wires that will not be seen and can be done before hand,
this is the new samsung 22", fitted but was 1 mm too small, i mean just think about it, samsung snips off a whole millimetre. unheard of
did have to modify the stuck in inner samurai frame holder though, a wee bit
its time to get the backside finished.
i am trying to pack everything that is not absolutely necessary but which has to be used or controlled at some time into the rear of tha samurai. i just dont want to sacrifice the samurai aura optically by putting in modern switches and blinking leds etc..
thats what this caseing is for, DVD leds panel, switches etc..
it will also serve as a 90° bracket support for the monitor frame itself givving it more stability because its so high.
and when its finished it will be like a japanese terraces house side wall, i hope.
more to come, also watch my new casemod called D.C.M.M. COLOSSUS
YES Abbas is back!! Glad to see some more of your work, this is an awesome build.
thanks mate, the aim is getting it finished more or less by the 16th. its going to the DCMM too.
Nice going and nice to see you back modding
thnaks mate, yes really want to get this one finished.
did some of the rear panel work today, dont want any of these modern features in the front, would just destroy the samurai aura.
more to come...
so here is the result of today session in the basement. the corner airlets are done with bamboo slits instead of mesh, just like some of the samurai shoulder plates. oh manthat was a lot of fiddly work getting every little twig in the right gapped pplace right. the bokken holder is made and mounted, the inner cable cover plate is done, the back fan cober cbamboo curtain cover is done, i had to exchange the monitor, was dead, is now a new second hand samsung, same size. just had to change the front buttons seeing as this one is touch on. wont need any so i modified the front battlefan rivet switches to be on off and other functions. the msuc contoller is in and tomorrow i will start with putty paint and polish.
more to come.
hi guys, color is on it now, next post will display the samurai in its armour
