I usually try to keep posts on my dA account strictly related to my models and various projects, but I've found myself in need of a larger sounding board than biased online reviews. As the title states, my iPod (160gb 7th gen classic) recently died on me, and given that it's out of warranty, I'm looking for a replacement/alternative.
Since high school, I've gone through maybe five or so iPods, and in my experience, they typically barely out last their 1-year warranty. On top of that, the one time I did have a legitimately defective in-warranty device, dealing with Apple's customer support was akin to pulling teeth.
So I'm curious as to what
I finally got tired of sitting on this little guy, so I decided to throw him out into the wild and hope for the best. Maybe I'll come back and actually build it some day, but for now, at least it'll give others a chance to play with it:

Good news, everyone!
Some of you may remember the model of the Sentry Turret (from the game Portal) I did a while back. A few weeks ago, a member of the DIY site, Instructables, suggested I enter it into one of their current contests. Being one of my earlier models, It's fairly simple compared to some of my more recent ones, so I spent a few days re-building it while documenting the process to write a step-by-step guide. This will also be useful for some of you, as I've received more than a handful of requests for help with this model (as well
I am loving putting together your Portal Turret model.
My kids have just discovered Portal, and are rather obsessed lately. I'm contemplating printing out this model on a large plotter, and using that as a dress-pattern style template on top of cardboard. Maybe even get life sized.
The end goal of this idea is a killer Halloween consume.
Thinking about scaling this up- it may need to have more folds to get closer to round curves. From what I can tell, the 3D model coming into Pepakura would need to have that.
Any chance you still have the original files, or recommendations on massivly scaling this up? mitch at mitchross dot com
