THE SAMURAI SACRILEGIUM

Hi Everyone, After the RENEGADE and BLACK WIDOW in 2012, its now time for something new.
I would like to introduce you to one of my new creations called
THE SAMURAI SACRILEGIUM.
and the lord said, let there be light so that the modders can drw the first sketch, and wala
here it is. This is the basic idea, but as usual, because i change my ideas along the way, the case itself is changing already. it will start really getting interesting when i started doing up and painting all the parts i am making for it.



[IMG]http://we-mod-it.com/index.php?page=Attachment&attachmentID=3672&h=49ce 0094e39122ae35fdf890119d245c18e95506[/IMG
]
























then i started to make the samurai helmt which will be the camera holder eventually.





i now, it looks funny, but these are essentiall modding materials for this one, wait and see.


i wasnt satisfied with the corners of the nippon bows so here i changed them a bit to get more profile on the sills.







these strips are made of car windows washing leathers and when stained and dried look just like old techered leather bands or strips. this is the 1rst experiment to see what they look like.
one thing is for sur, they will be damned cheaper than real leather and look just as good if not better.








lets mnake the base connector stand now










as soon as the basic frame was finished, i did my samurai kamikaze war cry, didt have any swords though



here some more experiments



so guys, its not anywhere like finished yet, this is all the basic structure upon which i can now build.
more to come..

How can you stand all that sanding dust from the plywood? oof.

Looking great so far. I've got a buddy who wants me to build him a custom wooden case including a monitor of about the same size. Think those glued pieces will be enough to support it long term? And are you worried about heat build up at all?

hi mosquito, thanks it will change a lot though, it still hasnt got the aggressivene it will finally have when painted and et off with leather etc..
the monitor itself is sitting or rather resting on the inner frame. the glued parts are just keeping it in place, not holding it. the outer frame with the speaker cutouts is decking the tft frame so that it looks as if its just looking through even though its actually resting on the inner one. in other words the backframe has a full sizedhole with the monitor hitting the fronwards frame and being held in place by the glued parts. hope you know what i mean.
as far as heat is concerned, it will of course be ventlated as soon as i get to doing the backside and base foot which i havent started yet. ity my 16th casemod and 7th monitor so far and they are all well vented so far. remeber the old tube television sets, they were practically central heater units and the wood held through without any fans at all. i will still make sure it has a good airflof from the bottom to top when all the hardware is placed into it though, more to come thing ar gonna change a lot

hi cheapskate, thanks, am glad you like it. i can guarantee you though that its gonna change a real lot yet. am still busy with the main structure etc..
the paintjob and other elements of chrome and leather is whats gonna make this baby shine.
as far as th style is concerned, i guess its gonna be both. i am not sticking to a plan or style at all and its not a shogun or last samurai build but of course inspired by such films too.
have researched a bit and am trying my best not to copy but to integrate elements.
all is working out so far, lets see it eveolve over the next few weeks.
more to come..

Yeah, I think I get what you mean, and I think I see it now. I didn't catch that the mounting tabs on the monitor were further back from the front when I looked at it the first time. Thanks for the response

This is totally awesome.

Only thing I didn't understand-is this going to be monitor or all in one pc?

I see there is a lot of room inside housing.

please allow me to keep some surprises coming.

hi dreps, glad you like it, here is some more.

i want certain elemnts on this mod to look as if they are being held together with stirrups and leather laces type of strips which i am fabricating myself. they will be pulled through the little chrome eyelets which will be hammered into the holes which will be drilled in after painting.
this way it should look as if its held together like for instance the leather and bamboo armour plates of samurai armour.









these plates have about a cm of space behind the darker parts inbetween where i will place LEDS


samurai helmets have horns, am gonna use that idea for the 4 front corners, here is the template and then the result









remember, his is what the helmet initially looked like, and see what it looks like afterwards.


this sawdust is killing me, sanding sanding sanding.






of course i am taking the liberty of changing the design according to my own wishes a little.


the chin guard will be elevated via laces or servo or maybe both later on to reveal or veil the camera which is placed as the mouth behind it.this is supposed to be one of the eye catchers when the case is finished


i have to be very carefull because its all so delikate and filigrane, dont wann break anything before its mounted and painted. here am doing some of the fine work on the chin guard

now its time to give it that scales plate look
as you may have noticed all along the way, i am using no CAD or software to dimension and scale everything. its all in my imagination and reeled out on the fly. dont want to restrict myself and abide by a CAD sketch. i like the analog freedom of improvisatory liberty





will reduce the ear wings a bit, they are too big


and here a very essential element for the helmet crown, the shogun horns




the front monitor frame is now fixed here, screwed on from behind so that i can cut out the speaker windows behind it.



what i will also do while the front frame is temporarily fixed is set in the monitor front panel buttons and strip, dont worry you wont see much plastic afterwards, but i will use some of it from the original monitor frame.






the middle strip which i left will hold the front cover which will have no frame and will be screwed from behind.










a very important step, i checked to make sure the monitor is still working,,,,,,eehhhhaaaaaaaaaa it lives



i salvaged some speakers from an old set, the amp is broken but the monitor has its own, so i just need the speakers.

of course the speakers will be housed in an internal box behing the front window


these boxes will be lit up with hidden leds when finished.






more to come...

thanks guys, and here are some more pics of the latest developements.

i made some more roofer stirrups for the top and bottom










i milled the grooves in the stirrups for the leather strips which will hold them down later







it was then time to unpack the swan camera, it will be placed under the helmet and the chin guard will veil and unveil it via a servo.





the tricky part was getting the chin guard to move up and down, but being so filigrane and delikate was what i was worried about. didnt want it to break while being moved later., so i built a type of seesaw with a rear axle. this will be motorised internally later on. i will cover up the slits later on.


i used birch wood, which is tougher for these fine mechanic parts

used a coat hanger for the axle wire








while the chin guard glue was drying i made these little test logos. can anyone read them



so now its time to cover the camera properly and anhance the chin guard to cover the seesaw arm slits






i made two larger side wall stirrups for the helmet plateau, i want that the helmet can be taken off easily afterwards, maybe magnetic or clip in or something, we will see

they also needed the leather strap grooves too.








thats all for now, will be sending more soon as i have time, tonight i will delve into my modder den again..
