Finished 1/8" thick Opaque Red acrylic plates in the mill. They will mount inside the machined aluminum exterior plates, as shown in drawing... I'll mount these this afternoon

Fantastic Bill, as always! I especially love that you went old school Star Trek rather than TNG or one of the other series'. I like them all but nothing beats good old James Tiberius Kirk!

The PC is for David Gerrold, screen writer for original series, I'm making 2nd to be given away at Comic-Con!

Finished the four Enterprise inlays for the side panels on both cases last night.

The trim piece for the Bezel, Hot Swap & Top compartment doors are being laser cut from 1/8" thick Red Opaque Cast Acrylic. We're using a single 75 watt, 24" x 18" Platform "Universal Laser Systems" machine. We use this unit for making retail PC fan and radiator grills. This unit if new, would be priced between $19K - $25K. We don't offer laser cutting as a service, but these guys do! Laser Cutting Service, Inc. offers custom laser cutting to PC builders, modders! hobbyists.

Next step is making the "H" frame piece for the lower portion of the bezel, from 1.5" thick aluminum. This will have an engraved "David Gerrold" signature plate (white square, 2nd pic). Each of the cases will have two ICY DOCK MB877SK-B Tray-less Aluminum Body 3.5" SATA I, II & III Mobile Rack Removable Hard Drive adapters, behind a hinged access door (red square, 2nd pic) on the front of the case.





By request from David, two ICY DOCK MB877SK-B Tray-less Removable Hard Drive adapters... to store his Scripts? hmmm
