    Thank you.:)

    Thank you. :)

    Thanks, and not long now. :thumbup:

    Thanks. :)

    Thanks, some things have turned out exactly as imagined others not, but
    overall I'm happy with how it all came together. I have to tell you though,
    I finished making all the parts four days ago and upon assembly I got a bit
    of a shock :shock:. I didn't like what I was looking at. But this was because
    I've been looking at the case in a partially open state for months, so to see
    it all closed up was wierd. Now, I like it. :D

    Thanks, I got the anodising done at a place in Blackburn and it cost about
    a hundred dollars for two lots. Still one lot to go. I did look into doing the
    anodising myself but I have nowhere to store the acid and having a very
    curious young daughter around made me shelve this idea.

    I won't update now till it's done. All the parts are made, just tweaking to do
    and the long process of finishing the wood and polishing some alu. And then
    of course taking the photo's. I'm not good at photography so I'm dreading
    this. :sick:

    First of all, although I'm very happy with the photos, I can't explain the colour variation
    straight off the camera, but the wood is gorgeous and the photos do it justice.

    Thanks to all who followed this project, and especially thanks to those who have posted
    and given thier opinions and idea's, I have used quite a few ideas proposed by members.
    Thank you. :clap::clap::clap:

    The best thing about building CX1 has been the wealth of experience I've picked up along
    the way. Many things I undertook for this project were for the first time and many mistakes
    were made, but I now have a huge arsenal of knowledge that I can take to the next project
    and hopefully make it easier, quicker and better.
    See you next time. ;)

    It's beautiful. I like the one where it opens the wings and about to take off.

    oh, my god.

    just read the entire thread, start to finish.

    the final pictures make the year long journey worthwhile. this case is absolutely stunning.

    i love the contrast between the jarrah, anodised aluminium, and polished aluminium. amazing.

    excellent work.
