    Damn Cope, that's looking sexy for a bench rig --

    That must be massive, that PSU looks tiny in comparison to the rest of the setup -- Can't wait to see when it's all done =)

    hopefully my real PSU will not look so small haha

    lol don't worry the 'Duke' has a backplate so you wont notice the part that did not get painted :) Just figured it would help save paint haha

    backplate ^^^ :toast:

    You can see how I am planning on lighting the 'Duke' so it has a nice shine ... although that wont be completely done until later in the week because a few parts i needed to order :wtf:

    everything in the picture is glued and nailed so its pretty much done besides the touch up painting which I will do tomorrow and then everything should be perfect and fully covered! ;)

    haha all good :toast:

    Well finished putting everything on except the 1 thing i had to order. all the wood and everything like that is glued and nailed so i guess technically it is finished but just needs a few aesthetic touch ups...

    could not paint today due to the massive rain we have here. however tomorrow is suppose to be like 70 and sunny so i will finish the touch ups then and i am hoping wednesday i should have the last piece of the build in to put it on and be 100% done.
