      Hello Junior,

      any news from your side ?

      It has been pretty a long time now, since you announced you would release the project and kit, soon.

      Your blog is pretty quiet since one month now.


      I'm almost getting ready to start again getting my hands dirty and I'm now pretty impatient to make it.


      Please keep us informed.


      Any other one going to hare some info on the matter ?

      Hi Felix,

      Thank you for your comments!!!!

      The idea is not only to sell the full kit, but part of it or just the building plans (very cheap - just to support the development).

      Everyone will be able to build one for very low cost.
