What the heck! That's completely awesome! What a fantastic job! I can't believe it!
Must have taken you quite a few hours though! Can you do my STe as well? :-)

It was a long one especially with experimenting with primers and films. I could share my experience if somebody would like to do it.
I'll probably update the webpage with used materials and costs later. As for comparison professional hydro dippers wanted to charge £2-300 and I think I got it working under £40. It' would have been even cheaper if there's no minimum order on the stickers.

Yes, please! I'd really appreciate more pictures and details on the process, including where you bought the material you used from, brands, etc. If you update your page with such information please let me know!
I keep looking at the pictures and I'm totally blown away by the result. How did you do the labels on the key caps?

Agreed, it's a lovely job. Looks like he had transparent labels made with white lettering.

Re stickers:
I've already had the Illustrator file since I made the Black ST and the Chrome before (can be seen on the website). I just had to find a company that prints low volumes on transparent and with white ink. So sent the custom graphics and that's it, they printed it. I also took the opportunity to recreate the light blue set since this one is much better than the ones I used for the Black ST before.

Will upload more photos and let here know. Until that here is a close up of the keys (no F keys at this point).

Impressive collection of computers! I like your black ST as well. How durable are the painted surfaces and water transferred surfaces?

The film sticks strongly, they use it on car rims as well so it's all about aftercare.
The best is to protect with clear varnish glossy or matt, depending on your project. I move the black ST around quite often to put new ones on my desk, so that shows some wear now. These are not designed to be mobile anyway. But if it's a Mega or TT, I'd be careful putting the monitor on top.

Hey Robson, I know this is off-topic but is there a chance you could explore the transputer workstation a bit more? I wonder if you could even contact the original designers of the transputer since they are UK based, they might even be keen to go round your place and show off what HeliOS can do.

It's briefly explained on the link at first post. Water transfer printed or hydro dipping - whatever you prefer.

I have explored some but not documented here or on my web. And of course takes some time to fully get to know each other. Unfortunately I have so much else going on. But not forgotten.

Ah ok, sorry. Yep it is better to discover on your own than me trying to explain. One YT video can say more than 100 words. You can even create custom films, this is how I made another ST printed with my childhood favourites. It also there on they website.

I've updated the page on the first link, added few more images but also on the bottom there is a link to the materials and costs.

Saw the YT video. So I now know what's water transfer is about.
LOL I always thought it was a big piece of sticker paper and the guy had a very steady hand sticking them on.

There is also a method ( the film is called monokote if I'm right) where you wrap your object with a film kind of thing and use a heat gun to adjust but it probably wouldn't work well on such difficult and detailed surface as an ST case.

Quite impressive. Have you considered perhaps sleaving the mouse cable?

I did try...didn't work, so stopped spending money on that one. To me the computer was the main thing. Happy with he mouse as is.
