I think it looks great Dave. Very professional sleek finish. I like it. Wish you were my illusion builder. Let us know when you put up a video of you performing it.

Hi guys and many thanks for your kind words.
I got the plans out of steinmeyers book (modern art and other mysteries) I bought it off a friend of mine that had the book in his collection but never made the illusions.
Thanks,
Dave

Jim Steinmeyer, who came up with Modern Art, put out a book with complete plans. It is now out of print:

Excelelnt work Dave. I have the book and have been meaning to build one for a while. Do you mind me asking roughly how much it cost you to build?

Thanks

Looks great Dave. Is all of the design work painted, or am I seeing decals of some type? If so, what did you use?

I'm not sure totally as I did it over 6/7 months and also being in the uk the price will vary a lot but it was deffinatly cheaper then buying one (but only if you already have the space and equipment)

Illusionist11-
As Michael Messing said, it's out of print. You can't ethically build it unless you obtain a licensed version of the book second hand. (And though I haven't seen the license, I think I remember hearing the restriction that the book needs to be included with purchased versions of the illusion as well.)

That said, check around- someone may be willing to sell you their copy of the plans.
