    Naked Delica revisited, a high HG on an FFG Delica .. a little bit of fun

    I was able tp get in early and do some fun tweaks to the original Naked Delica. I saved a copy of the the original assembly and all of it's components into a seperate folder and decided to play What would a FFG Delica look like with a high hollow grind?

    Modifications to the components was completed pretty quickly, the scales in acrylic, colored purple, brass liners, simple diamond knurled texture, and a high HHG.

    An impractical design, but fun and instructive to try virtually

    Enjoy the pics

    These pics today are just the result of a burr I felt this morning on my drive to work, nothing more than an enjoyment of HG and to build further on what I have with the original project within the constraints of my work (rendering in the backround), sharing pics is just icing on the cake......

    Any constructive criticism is welcome

    The grind should be higher. Look at the Dragonfly Salt!

    A simple matter of changing a couple of dimensions and maybe upping the radii on the curve of the hollow I'll shoot for it Monday morn

    I love this design. I'd probably snap the tip off immediately, but I don't care. Love the purple accents, too.

    I actually surprised nobody has tried to put a Delica together without the scales. You would need shorter screws and studs but it would be pretty cool and really light.
