A super lightweight one I have been working on since June. Finally had the drive to get it done today.

Thatlooks really nice. Can I ask what your method is for making the pocket for the shield?

Yes indeed.  I use a parser plate and pre-cut shield made by Leading Edge Fabrication (they have many different parser plate/shield combos you can buy) - good quality and fairly cheap.

I set up my dremel tool on a cheap drill press stand and I fabricated a mount for a dial indicator (so I know I am only drilling down .040 deep).  I then created a simple jig to hold the scale with the parser plate clamped to the top of it.  I put that clamped up scale/parser plate under the dremel drill press and plunge down .040 deep (or however thick my shield is) and then rout out the material. I use a small bit.  I will then take a small chisel and clean up the corners to make them nice and sharp.  The shield will pop right in place.

Bet it looks even better in person! Photos never show the depth you get with the CF and the way it changes when you move it around.
