Very sad to hear about Langer even though I didn't know him. Good on you for continuing his work and I look forward to seeing more done on this.

Cheers.

Current progress: I'm in talks with a local precision machining shop to nail down a price to get some of the cutting and bending work done.

Hopefully I will have a real update in the coming weeks.

Hopefully this legend of a build will finally honour the fallen member we have.

Greetings to one and all!

My apologies for the infrequency of updates. I have prior engagements that I shall be rid of by the end of the coming week. Very excited for this, and other projects to come.

Since my last update, I have worked out an arrangement with a local sheet metal shop. Bill Lawson and his boys from Metallica Mfg came highly recommended to me from various friends.

Without further adieu, here are some glory shots of the copper monstrosity:


Filing all the pieces. Rotary cutting, unsurprisingly, does not give as clean of an edge as waterjet.




Panels, ready to transport



Some printouts I made for the machinist to better understand the folds I am looking to achieve.







Picture of part of the shop. They sure have many goodies in here!


"What a machine!"


Clean bends, very little marks on the metal.


The metal itself clearly still needs a bit of work. Sanding, polishing, eventually laser engraving followed by a clear coat.


Front panel is still very much unfinished in terms of filing.





Some teaser pictures of the underbelly




Hope you enjoyed,

Stay tuned for more!

Man, I'd love to see this build get finished. But maybe with some newer gear inside? Is SaibotC still working on this project?

RIP Langer

Read through this whole thing wow did the OP have a zest for life and a major drive. Really makes you sad to read lines where he talks about putting enjoyment on hold for a few months for years of prosperity and fun.

Would love to see this project complete and damn that guy put 99% of modders to total shame.

RIP
