    Finally, one of my main projects finished.

    I had such high expectations, but i had to rethink
    and redo several parts, so that there are some issues
    with the surfaces and the "alignment" of the parts,
    that i could not correct.
    I will not go into details with my failures,
    because they are easy to spot:(.

    But the overall concept is intriguing.
    Making the grip from casting resin,
    that wraps seamlessly around a boardcut/sandwich build
    is really nice.Therefore i named this Kite "Black Nexus"
    I don´t think that i have seen something like that before.

    As for the materials, i used a 10mm aluminum core,
    green acrylic glas spacers and 5mm aluminum scale-parts.

    A lot of sanding and polishing.
    Not a perfect mirror finish, but thats the best i can do:p

    Standard top slot attachment.

    I hope you generously overlook the flaws
    and like it anyway :D

    Thanks for watching

    Most of the time only the builder can see the "Flaws". If this was on the other forum, it would be up for slingshot of the month.
    Damned Nice.

    I'm with Flipgun here.
    You might see some minor imperfections.
    I see a frame so radical that I don't even know how you pulled this one off! :eek:
    The design reminds me of a crossbreed between a modern Rolls Royce and a T-1000 terminator: Sleek and luxurious with a sense of cool precision.
    Incredible!

    Well....when you say "overlook the flaws".....some people here would say that "você está querendo confeti". Hahahha. Good look trying to understand this brazilian common speech . It is just amazing. Fantastic piece, man!

    If i make another one similar to this, i will take some progress pictures
    At least, i have to implement the things i have learned from this build.:)

    No, i am not fishing for compliments, when i say this.:)
    Do you want me to take some pictures focussing on the bad and ugly parts? ;)

    Thank you all for your kind words:).
    Much apreciated, guys.
