Pop Riveting!

Attaching the shiney privacy cover to the main body.

The Book

I'm also creating a book recording my work from start to finish - here are some sample pics of the contents...

Bits & Bobs

I've been a bit busy to blog with tidying up some of the messy bits - new x & y knobs are being made with knurling & no line on top (it doesn't need it), fixing & attaching the coin slot door, polishing up the privacy cover, & making the coin slot a bit neater. Pics will be up soon to show the improvements!

The (Almost) Finished Model!

Looking good! I just got some feedback from my lecturers & there are some little things I need to change, but I'm happy with it.

Installing The Screen


Here is the circuit board & the Arduino mounted together on one board & wired up.

The Body

Here is the process of spraying the Observer body. The top right pic is the untouched, sandblasted body to the last pic of the finished article.


I haven't posted for a while, but here are the small parts (coin box door & platform) sprayed up with the primer & graphite grey spray paint. With the help of Gus, we applied 4 coats of primer with around 4 coats of paint. Looks very nice!
