Great scoop by Neil Green over at at IndieRetroNews.com.

He posts several close-up photos of the Amiga 1200 prototype mold, created thanks to the hugely popular Kickstarter by Philippe Lang that kicked off on September, 2015.
From the latest 3D model an operator is using a special machine to carve up both the case top & bottom shell with parts from a material using a CNC cutting tool. After CNC machining is complete the worker will then use a hand tool to fine tune the prototype because the surface of the prototype may be crude after the CNC machine has done its bit.
If this doesn't get your blood pumping a little faster, it may be time to visit a medical professional.
