I got a ton of feedback in the comments on my second attempt at this synth. Thanks loads, everyone! I went back today and took a fresh set of pictures, keeping in mind everything I'd been told in the feedback on the last synth. The wind was iffy when I got there, so I didn't get to do everything I wanted. But I think the pictures I did get should synth nicely. Over 860 pictures this time, so the synth is going to run for several hours. As soon as it's done, I'll start posting links.
Thanks again for all the feedback and help with this. I'm going to leave the two "problem synths" around for reference, regarldess of how this new one turns out.
