Nice, Dane. Definitely badass, and it'll sound wonderful. You've put a lot of engineering hours into that...

Thanks, but I don’t have as many hours in it as you might think; it hasn’t been too bad (worst part for me was fabric/paint, I hate paint and wish I had better facilities to do a better job. LIGHTING IS IMPORTANT!).

My delays were purely personal, I have no good excuse for this taking as long as it has.

Finally! I’ve been waiting to see those pictures Dean. Share more when you have a chance. I agree that’s gonna look and sound bad ass.
