  2. This may very well become classified as scratch due to the nature of the build. But my goodness man, you have absolutely killed it with this build! I cant wait to see the end results
  3. Why is not in Scratch!!! This is effing wild. Master class grade build right here FOR SURE!
  4. Project Maple was designed to be the most Canadian thing imaginable; With its proud Red and white, assortment of maple leafs, and even golden maple syrup pumping thru its waterways. Its an honor to be entering into the 10th Anniversary, and I hope you enjoy Project Maple.

The 3D logo "Flag" came to me after a first attempt at simply painting on the logo, and it was just bland. Flannel top was always something I wanted to incorporate. MB530p glass replacement - 7hrs I wanted to keep the case as cosmetically stock as possible on the exterior, with the full focus on the internals. Originally I had planned to do the entire front, but 4 hours in, my back was in such agony from being hunched over the saw, I cut a leaf in the bottom right and cleaned it up. Off to paint. The chop chop bits - 6hrs Chop it up, make it fit. Chop it more, paint it! Fitment was one thing I didnt take into consideration with the MB530P. I wanted perfomance, not just appearance! A day of Color - 12hrs So many parts to paint, such un-opportune times to paint. Anyone whos ever tried to paint when its 35c+ out will know, its brutal Your paint will dry before it has a chance to hit the mating surface, and too close will cause big time runs. Painting had to be done first thing in the morning while it was a cool 20c and left to bake outside all day long. And at last, the final stages. - 20hrs After taking a break for LTX19, I came back to work on making my cables, start on some tubes that I had to make while the case was still apart, get to riveting the case all back together, and assembly. I spent the better part of every free moment I had trying to get this looking good. I am not the best at bending tubes freehand(only an insert) But I think it worked out well
