DUO Groupbuy

DUO is back. 

Originally designed in 2018 by LAZYDESIGNERS, DUO was a dual color housing design which was a favorite among many folks.

The resigned DUO is still a simple kit, and also not a perfect kit. The design is to choose a balance between lowering costs and maintaining good performance.
