I couldn’t fix the Geara Doga’s mono eye, so I had to replace it but luckily it was fairly painless. For the lighting area I made a temporary setup that took up my entire work desk. It worked surprisingly well, so much so that I will probably use it for any other large builds in the future.

I went with alclad gunmetal for the inner frame but unfortunately it was extremely dark, so much so that it could be confused with the black. Continue reading →
