So... This will be my second attempt at modifying my build to fit a certain theme, the first one was what I named "Winter Solstice"
. It was a decent first try, but I always wanted to finish it. At the same time my tastes has changed and I'm doing a different build entirely this time around.
The theme will be Art Deco and copper, two things that I just really think fits remarkable well. So the name of this build will be "Cire Perdue" which comes from the french term for "lost wax" casting. It's a technique that has been used since the height of the bronze age, and has always been really difficult to do while at the same time giving almost perfect castings without any substantial flashing.

This build has taken me a really freaking long time to do, and while I have had most of the parts for at least a year now I just haven't had the motivation to do anything with them. It's unfortunate, but sometimes life just punches you in the face and everything gets increasingly harder to get the motivation to complete. Anyway, I have recently gotten into this again and I have given myself a goal of doing something every day if the circumstances allow it. So you are likely to see a lot of incremental updates on here from mid february and onwards, some of it will be quite boring and I apologize for that, but every now and then something interesting will be done.
I will update the main post here with some pictures once I am ready to put it all back together for a final test fit. Until then I hope my CAD designs for most of the cover panels will suffice;
