    To survive as a small US manufacturer, you must diversify your production resources to cater to as many consumer markets as possible. Mnpctech wouldn't have survive if we relied on sales of our custom PC parts alone. We make niche products for other enthusiast hobbies as well.

    No progress to share today, but my friend Stu came by to share his Dota 2 PC build. A combination of a scratch build and PC case mod. He used Fractal Design's NODE 304 as the core inside this amazing wood crafted treasure chest,

    with lots and lots of machined aluminum parts....haha
     
    My apologies for the lack of updates. I've had to start another project build for a client. Paying gigs keep the lights on, so Max will need to temporarily park the Falcon. I may bring it out and share a new update for mental break if time allows. I will be starting a worklog for this new build once the NDA is lifted, I think it will be a real spectacle once it's finished.

    Thank you! You're really gonna love new build project I'm starting this fall, it will be similar to shiny, but with real working special F/X. I will share worklog on LTT sometime in November, when the NDA allows me to.

    To emulate the rear fuel tanks in the Falcon XB, I'll be using EK-RES X3 150mm reservoirs. btw, these photos are stills from video I'm making of the entire build, once it finished for my YT channel, https://www.youtube.com/user/MonsterMawd
    I'm wondering if I can use clips from the movie without audio in my video? no clue...

    As promised, I'm ditching the scoop on the scale V8 and making the Scott Superslot fuel injector scoop from Max's V8. I started by makingthe top and bottom portions from acrylic, but getting the 45 angle degree bend from acrylic is "challenging" without the acrylic warping. I ditched that idea and made another bottom half from 20 gauge sheet metal. Which reminded me I really need a new bending brake. The two pieces are joined together with Scotchweld DP-190 epoxy. I need to make the base next, and maybe add the fuel lines.

    The Max mod is consuming my bench space, haha. Last night I cut opening in the 5.25 bay to route the tubing from the 80mm radiator

    I might just fabricate a hood as well. I made scale vette stingray cowl duct hood in 2005 with sheet metal and body filler


    Yesterday I cut the top panel further so I could rotate the 80mm radiator onto it's side. It just protruded too much. I want the supercharger and blower to be more of the focal point, just a little OCD? maybe... haha
