That's nice, good luck with that scratch build, looking forward for more pics.

One more thing I'm a bit confused about: atm looking at the pic #2 from post #6. Am I missing something or those RAMs, all 4 of them, are going under the water too or...?

I've been there with my boys, saw that mod of yours and one more mod (far left from the Back To Nature Ivy) in the background, nice work man, here are few pics of those mods of yours in the background, taken on Games.Con 2016, I've did some more pics of those mods of yours but my camera is not near me atm.
