    Hello again! Rhaven and I have teamed up again to make the Farnsworth communication device from Warehouse 13. There are two main FWs, a simple one in brass finish and a black one from the master FW himself. I have collected many good refs from various sources and will show you the first WIP pics shortly.

    I'll let you know if I need one! :thumb:

    And sorry for the delay of this project but I had some big trouble with my Panasonic DVD recorder. I was about to transfer 200 GB of film to DVD when it suddenly insisted on formatting the whole HDD! :eek: The rescue operation is still in progress but it's coming along nicely. (More on that in a separate thread in the off topic lounge: http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=174751 ) CU soon! :wave:

    Sorry, the Viper group build interfered with all my projects. However, I have rigged up a simple SketchUp model and will post updates shortly. Stay tuned!

    I have created the raised elements and applied a preliminary texture.
