I've finished constructing the 3d printer which is a basic Prusa Mendel design with minor modifications. Here are the following specifications:

Metric printed parts modified for linear bearings
Arduino Mega 2560
RAMPS 1.4 shield
Pololu A4988 Stepper drivers
NEMA 17 stepper motors
Mechanical end stops
Aluminum T5 pulleys
Aluminum motor couplings
Wades Extruder with laser cut gear and Budaschnoozle 1.0 hot end
MK1 heat bed using 100k Epcos thermistor
Apevia Java 500w power supply
Adjustable leveling feet

The most helpful online documentation I found for the assembly is:
YouTube videos from RepRapLogPhase

Next step is calibration.
