Trying the leds in the panels before paint.
Noticed the yellow needs to be changed to amber, too much yellow
BTW, its 3mm ledīs

Made some more panels for the USB headers.



The USB headers goes here, behind the "tower" at the red arrow.




And a colourtest to see how it looks



Soon gettinī there, much time goes to the LEDīs and not so much for the case right now.

Hammertime!

*Smack*



Got tired of the roof, the plastic i used was to soft that i sagged when sanded and after 10 runs with putty/filler i still didnt have a flat roof.

And all wet sanding made the wood increase in thickness, had it in the oven for a couple of hours now to dry it up.



Going to replace the roof with 4mm acrylic, and i hope i can get done with the casing now, all other parts just laying around and wait

Current state of the case.
Testing the led-panel, i wish i made the cutout bigger... See if i make that change later or if i just go with it.
Nevermind the edges, its not done yet

Almost time for some Tic Tac Toe

Hehe, i didnt watch the second movie until i begun with this project. Its crazy that they missed sooo much details on the WOPR, insanely bad WOPR in the movie with Ripley.

I have stopped using my white plastic and moved to acrylic, more rigid and not flopping around when sanded. The styrene is to saggy to use in a case this big.

Its gettinī taller!
I have three fans in the case, on on either side of it, on pulling and the other pushing, one side have double setup (where the rad is).
Both fans are hidden behind a panel and push/pull air trough a duct in front of it. I have made some tests with cardboard just to see the flow and cooling capacity and its plenty good for my purposes. Tested with 100% cpuload in 4hrs and a H60 cooler.
I didnt want any visible fans, im all focused on making it really really look like a smaller version of the real WOPR

The small tabs behind the rounded corner on the acrylic is temporary there when gluing, to get nice straight corners. otherwise they will hit the motherboard

First pic, case rising to the skies.
This is the back side with IO-plate cutout. You also see the fan hole that later is hidden.




Pic two
Here is the cover over the fan on the left side of the case.
Other side have the same type of panel.



Here is how the real WOPR looks like at almost the same angle

Time to start making the light controllers.
This is just a test for one of nine controllers for the LED panels.
White and blue to the left is output and its triggered on/off by the red with a knot on.

Soldering iron heating up...

Current status, its bondo time.

Tonight i tried to get the shape of the "tower" 100% but whatever i did, it didnt look right.
Until i cut a inch from the length, then the tower fit and all proportions is 90% spot on.
I have some strange thing with the tower, it looks too wide, but really isnt too wide.
So now i have cut the length, made a new tower piece and bondo it all over.

Alot of sanding to do before i put on some primer to check all small spots to fix.
Right now it looks like crap, but you guys who seen the WOPR probably can visualize it

While the bondo dries, its time to make the left panels ready. I want it standing by itself today!
