:shock: :shock: Wow, that's amazing! A bit messy in places, but still, excellent work. I think its a definite improvement over your SNESp in terms of vac. forming (although that wasn't too shabby either), looking much smoother and such. I like the black of the controller blending into the black of the case, it makes it look very cool.

Nice! I was wondering where do you get your clay for mold making? Do you make a mold with clay then melt the plastic over it? Vacuumforming might be the only solution if my client wants me to finish a case anytime soon. As for the messiness its nothing a nice coat of paint can't fix. :wink:

Oho! What have we here, a GCP, but *gasp* it's not Gamelver's! How can that be! :P
You're getting pretty good at vaccuum forming! And I have to say, I am having trouble deciding if I like Gamelver's GCP or yours more. They both are so good!
Great job, keep it up :D

Looks like the GCp isnt as rare an item as before. Looks very good, save for the oil/grease/whatever you have on the case.

Sweet! What kind of battery is that and how long does it last? What kind of paint did you use?

Great job man! I'll have to see if I can fit a screen and batteries inside a gamecube case sometime.

finally!!! I'm not the only one with a GCp :P!!!!!

looks good, turbo tax :D....a bit messy, but so was my first one ;). I see you had to make the case a little bigger than mine, though, to accomodate for those huge 3Ah batteries :)....I'm guessing you get around.....1.5 hours of battery life?

anyway, I'm glad to see that the 2.5th GCp is a great looking one :D...oh, and I would also like to ask...did my GCp thread(s) help ;)?
Without games my life would have no meaning.
Well, I guess it would, but it would be a lot less fun!!!!!!!
