I always wrote off my excuse for myself for not trying, because I love that design too much, was that it wasn't possible, but now that safeguard is gone! Would never have the skill to do this myself of course, but still, we can all dream Anyways, everything looks fantastic as usual, I love the pressure gauge for the demat lever, and the light looks eerily realistic. Can't wait to see all the ribs textured! Well done!I may have missed this somewhere earlier in the thread, but what are your storage plans for this when finished? Just wondering

(and I'm not that callous!)I was thinking more along the lines of "are you planning for an MD-style gig with lights and walls or something different?"

Also check out these: http://www.dxengineering.com/search/department/grounding-and-lightning-protection/product-line/dx-engineering-tinned-copper-braid?autoview=SKU&N=4294953334.The company's main page is here: http://www.dxengineering.com/, and I think M.D. used those on his build. Check this page of his Diary: http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=3155.75.#msgx38523. (You may have to read a few short posts; for some reason I can't link directly to my post recommending these.) Hopefully the company ships to NZ, but if not, or the shipping is too costly, you'll at least have some photos of the ground straps to print out and take with you to an electronics or electrical supply place and show them what you need. A home improvement place might also have it in their Electrical Aisle. (And double check with the place that has those banana plug terminals; chances are that if they have those terminals, they'll also have the straps, or know where to get some!)Dino.
