Unboxing video: Hardrock 50 amplifier kit

Yeah, I know - an unboxing video. For all the searching I did prior to ordering this kit, I was never able to find a photo of how it looked in its unbuilt state. For others who may be similarly curious, here's the Hardrock 50 (with options) in its larval stage (metamorphosis to the pupa stage - and possibly beyond - will begin Wednesday):

Buenos dias Mike, I built the front & rear panels last night - took about an hour. The next step is to wind all the toroids/transformers. Once that's done, it should all go together fairly quickly (he said, naively!).

Would like to see your progress. Also, when it is finished if the QSK was worth the loss in the system.

Like you, I dont like unboxing videos, but you were spot on with this one!

Thanks!

Tnx Kent. I made a lot of progress today, only a few steps away from final alignment. I took a lot of photos along the way that I'll post to my website later. 73 - John
