Awesome update. Your photography and lighting has gotten even better. This thread should have more views and comments!

I was talking E.E.L. Ambiense over skype, he brought up your return, we agreed it's nice to your project revived. We love doing scratch builds, but modding cases is a true Passion. Case Modding is not just about expressing artist creativity, but it also involves problem solving. You're challenged to engineer and innovate within the given space constraints. We open new cases as if we're handed a Three Dimensional Puzzle to solve. It's exciting to remove the side panel and peer inside a new case for the first time. "What are my objectives?!"


and Thank you so much for your comment!

Spoke with Lian Li Rep last night about a future collaboration. Got on subject of community forums and encouraged them to make an effort to have a Rep more accessible to us for getting feedback from us, I told him to check out your project

Just a quick q&a for now. Sorry about the small delay with my answers and also with updates. I've been repairing a few computers and re-installing my own workstation during the weekend and generally been quite busy. I should be back on track this coming week.

@Weijjy

You know the "monster is in the details" And actually I'm just getting started with the stuff that isn't even going to be seen. More on that probably on the next update...

@IanW

Darn, that's it, a cable gland! I've used that word many times before, but I just drew a total blank when writing that update. That's what I get for not working on the monster for so long

@mnpctech

The improvement with my photography is probably largely due to the fact that photography has become my main hobby during these years. Before I used a Fuji S5600 (which feels like a toy camera now ) with strictly natural light and maybe an Olympus E-520 with a bounced flash with a couple of the last updates before the long hiatus.

These photos now are a courtesy of my Canon 1Ds MkII or 7D and mostly used lens has been the 24-70L so far. Some of them are also with the 70-200 2.8 L II. I'm also using a self made shooting table with a seamless white background. Usually I have a 120x80cm softbox overhead and a shoot-through umbrella or a small softbox as a fill. Those are lit with Elinchrom studio flashes. PP in Lightroom and if necessary PS.

With the views I can't be nothing but satisfied, but I'm with you on the commenting. It feels that this place has gone a bit quiet since I last was more active here.

I'm also with you on the scratch build / case modding thing. I probably could do a scratch build (although it would probably take even longer than this has), but a totally different mindset is needed when you are constrained by the chassis itself (that isn't entirely true since you can go in the direction you want with a case, even turning it into a scratch build with only a piece of the original case). The thing for me is that I've been doing this for so long (at work and as a hobby) that being "restricted" by a case is where my mindset pretty much is and I'm quite comfortable there.

Suggesting this project for a Lian Li rep to read is a major honor. Thank you! I do wonder if he has checked this thread out though

@Mankz

Don't worry, I should be taking the monster on a new course now that the shroud work is almost finished. Let's see if I can give you more ideas that you can utilize in the future...

@Mr Armageddon

Thank you

@Razbit

I was wondering why you've been so silent for a while, but reading the whole thing kind of explains it

I'll do my very best to get the monster done.

That concludes the q&a for tonight, I'll try to deliver an update as soon as possible.

Stay tuned...

Darkened

Lots 'o win in this one. It's easy to see you got a better camera, but it's even easier to see that your photography SKILLS got much better.

Oh, you're using a light tent for the drain valve/fill port shots on the previous page, right?

Thanks Nutman,

When this project started I bought my first own digital camera and it soon became more than just taking photos for this log. As cameras go, I moved from Fuji on to Olympus land with E-520 and E-3 following that. Now with Canon I've gone from 7D (still own it tough) to the 1Ds MkII.

During this period I've taken about 500k photos, so I'd be a bit miffed if it wouldn't show in any way Seriously though, I'm really struggling at the studio still, but I also learn something every time and the nice thing is that here my two passions meet quite nicely.

For the drain valve etc. shots, no light tent was used. Just a shooting table with a seamless plastic backdrop and a massive softbox over it. Don't remember about fill for the single parts, but it's possible. I'll try to take a photo of the setup at some point.

I'm actually off to the shop now, but only to tidy the place up for now. Tomorrow might be a modding day again

A photo of the setup would certainly be cool.

Thanks for the explanation.

Hey all, this is just a "public announcement"

I'm having issues with my back, which sadly happens pretty much every year when the weather gets cold enough. It's starting to feel better, but not so well yet that it could take hours of standing at the shop. I'll get back to work as soon as I can stay upright long enough

Thanks guys, actually my back issues are no more an issue (for the time being) and I should be up and modding really soon. I have two intervertebral disc protrusions on my lower back and they cause these issues once in a while.

The next update will probably "air" in 2013 though, but it should be a good one.

This is a bit late, but Merry Christmas to all and also a prosperous new year
