Many thanks for your comments, Hans.Yes - a lot of screws! I wanted to be sure I wouldn't get any vibration noise from the body, and I hope it also adds to the CBG visual effect. I fitted a separate plate for battery changing to avoid having to unscrew them all again!

I really like your stuff, Hans! This is some really creative building you've got going!
