Watching this topic on and off for literally years. Life is busy, i know,  but this concept is too awesome to let slip by the wayside. I'll continue to wait.

yeah, he's cutting the LONG sides and they are really really long. I'd expect it might take another 18-24 months.

That's a fair estimate.

I heard he got it almost done and the spirit of the almighty occupied the build making it impossible to touch.  An eviction notice was drawn up but no agency will serve against an "act of God".  On the bright side Somunny's army is now impervious to defeat.  On the down side the build isn't likely to be finished until another ark of sufficient class and style is presented for the host of hosts to move into.

Not trying to be mysterious, but you know how life can be.

I hope to have more free time starting this summer than I've had during the past couple of years.  One of my top priorities is to get the ark project rolling again.  I can't believe it's been five years since I started it.  Wow, what a slacker I am!  All the materials are sitting in my shed just waiting to be rediscovered...


And LeChuck...  I don't think I've ever done anything in the spirit of the almighty.  :angel:

Heh, see I'm only 3rd slowest around here compared to you and PH.  Ahh just kidding and I do know how life can be.  This project inspired me when I was getting going on the Astro cab, and it still does.
You might think that you're scared, but you're not.  That isn't fear.  That's your sharpness.  That's your power.

My MVS-99-6 project was started around 3.5 years ago, what's my rank?  ;)

I'm glad to hear this project is still on. It was looking real good.
Life can be that way sometimes.

I know there are times when I'm full in and I frequent these forums everyday and them the next thing I know I'm so busy in other stuff that I'm out of here and the hobby for a few months

This was one of the original "original" ideas that inspired me in my project. It looks like 2013 is a year of returning projects! Happy to see you back, somunny!

Popping back in twice on the same day months ago does not a return to work make  ;D

Here's hoping the bumps will get him back at it!

Well look at that, it's been another year since the last post. At least I didn't miss much during my 6 year absence from the forum, this was one of the fun projects to follow back then and if it ever starts back up I can follow it again.

Not that it would have mattered. The Big Bang Theory has already proved that Indiana Jones involvement in the movie would have had absolutely no effect on the outcome.

I think we should all just let it die. And then be happy if it comes back. Or someone else make it.

I'm totally necro-bumping this thread--one to see if any more progress was made and 2 because I shamelessly stole all the artwork to build my own  ;D.  I'm going to go with a 2 player side by side setup since 90% of the games I play are horizontal 2 player games versus standard cocktail cabinet format.  I have a cocktail now and I find it really annoys me that its so nice vertically but terrible for horizontal games.

If Somunny sees this and wants to sell his progress (assuming he'd ship to canuckistan) then contact me!

Gauntlet *thrown*!

its better to not post and be thought a fool, then to whip out your keyboard and remove all doubt...
