The project is halfway though the cad design with next week set out to finish the side covers and head assembly. This completes the first design stage ready for a mockup. The second stage will fix small issues and check that we didnt over look anything. Followed by a full scale mock up with more detail and better finish, we may even mount systems in this one as a first run concept model before spending up on plastic sheeting for the first "real" prptotype that molds could be made from. see you around the net. sprocket2cog
