If I felt a bit moldy on the subject...

How to grow a Luna II under the pale light of a Bulgarian moon.
First we saw a baffle cast from the firm's proprietary mix of polyester resin, calcium carbonate and "other stuff" emerged from its mold.
This was followed by the aluminum LF enclosure of the Luna II and Terra III shown as raw casting shells fresh from the mold. The castings at left were then joined and had been readied for their first primer coat.
The total number of primer and undercoats is three. The next photo shows a Luna in the paint booth. Each part is covered by up to nine layers depending on the color. This process is entirely manual.
The next photo below then shows most of the Luna II parts ready for pair assembly. This includes the legs and horns machined one by one on a CNC lathe; the logo and serial number plate of laser-cut stainless steel; the four Wavecor and Peerless drivers; and the wired-up crossover boards with Mundorf capacitors.
Even when your funds don't stretch to a set of bright-red Ferrari wheels, a pair of equally shiny Luna II should be well within reach. If you played just the right flick—Transporter or Fast & Furious might do—it could even sound similar.
Now we get to the actual review pair still in bits and bobs begging for some hands-on TLC...
... finally transformed into a curvy two-tone monitor ready to sing.
Of course if your postman didn't ring twice, you might have gone canary and this color (Germany's postal cars used to be yellow to explain the connection.)
