Love detailed mods & this is effing awesomely detailed, my favourite detailed mod of all time so far, what is not to like? IMO only the weak material but that just requires gentle care but to be honest so does any nice mod. :)

Inca redible mod. :D




I know Aztecs & Incas aren't the same but I like it & it kinda fits. :p

Nice to see this hit the front page, loving the new bit-tech, congrats Dan.

very awesome. for the purpose of looks and visual impressiveness, i'd say this is in my top10 list of any casecon ever featured on bit-tech. being me, i do need to add that this would have hit my total sweetspot if it had a non-boxy shape. still very awesome though!

One of the best mods I have seen for a very long time. Unique, highly creative and fantastic workmanship. Well done!

FECK.

That has to be one of the most intricate pieces of modding work I've seen; oozing detail from every surface, a credit to the craftsman!

This is great. Thanks for the praise everyone.
A waterfall is a great idea, really. But there's no way I could have incorporated that into my 60 day construction time window. But it would at least be really cool to have a slim reservoir in place of the window area. That might be something to look into. Thanks!

Aww takes me back to my Warhammer days doing dry brushing!

Seriously excellent mod, the huge amount of detail really makes it stand out. More often than not you need to stand back and view of a whole mod to appreciate the skill, but I'd be happy just looking at the front of the DVD bays on this!

Edit: Although, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Balsa Foam a form of resin based plastic? I didn't think it was wood?

It is indeed, and I've updated the article accordingly. Why call it balsa then? (we obviously assumed it was a form of processed balsa wood) maybe some clever person can enlighten us!

Quoted from the place I discovered Balsa Foam. "It was developed specifically for three-dimensional design and model making."

I imagine a relate-able name would make the foam easier to sell. It worked for me. I've used balsa wood for years, so I had no hangups about trying out balsa foam.
