hi everyone, i did a little more on the base and here are the pictures.
also a video to show ho the main keyboard drawer which is also the monitor base too will basically work. still a lot to do here. i had to stick another thicker ply plate to the base underneath to give it more stability. dont want it to bend under the SAMURAIs weight later on. as you can see the kvm will also be integrated. evene though the whole build is an all in one, i want that you can switch between the internal pc or the external source for more versatility.
more to come










two of the holes were not exactly lined up properly, have sewn them up with pegs again and will bore them anew to get them right. maybe its time i bought a ruler and went to the opticians











i decided to shorten the base tunnel between the drawer and case to lessen the height in a whole of the case and compensate for the drawer height a bit. i chopped of
about two inches, the picture shows only about one, but i cut twice to get it right.



this is a 12 volt gear motor and will be driven back and forth by pole exchanging the wires and the biswitcher

set in two stop switches to cut the power and stop the motor for the other direction can be fine adjusted by the coat hanger wire seter by unscrewing a bit and sliding.






and here is the video first trial result of this ordeal.

oops, anyone know how i can insert a youtube link here, somehow cant get it in
more to come

thanks mate, still a lot to do though.
here is a small update, its a back plate for the back which will have a purpose too when its ready.
its not exactly finished yet though.
will be doing more today and sending an update again asap.



the back panel is drop in, i lift it up a bit under the top nippon bow and drop it into plave , so its doesnt have to be fixed, works great and gives me easy and quick access to the rear without any srewing needed.


for the first plate i scrounged around in internet and found this one, will be slightly altered in design.











more to come tonight..

hi guys, so have worked a bit again today on the keyboard tray, still getting more conours into it. want to slant it of in the front and back too apart from that i have taken 2 envelope opener and they will be modded into the build too. they are miniature katanas and i have built a cross to hold them with one single rivet later on. they will be shield mounted under the helmet chin. so its back into the basement now to get some more done before beddy byes.

















more to come later

hi guys, here is the next update, have been filing on the keyboard drawer a bit and also set in some ports at the back. still a lot to do but now the main base is finished i can decorate it accordingly. here is alsoa small video to show the top flap which moves up and down to cover the keyboard totally when retreated and concealed. tomorrow i will start decorating and doing it up to match the whole concept.

more to come tomorrow

hi everyone, so its now time for an update again, have worked on certain different parts. the keyboard locker and the samurai fan etc.. here are some picx.

these are sliders so that the drawer doesnt touch the top flap. made of coathanger wires, will be polished afterwards


every samurai has a ceremonial fan and even though its not exactly the feature i like the most, its part of the theme so here it is. will hold then camers chin prtotection servos, monitor leds and push buttons etc.. wehen painted it will look great. have carved and sanded it to look as if its really overlapper parts





i needed more body and depth so here i fitted a frame around it.





now i have enough depth for the elektronics



looks pretty 3d ish, i like it




will use these rivets to press the monitor button behind them




this servo controler is for the chin dropper on the helmet, to close or open the camera view

had to adjust and cut out the back cable tunnels a bit

when this knob is fitted it hould make the fan look a bit like the japanese red dot in the flag and the ceremonial samurai fanner








so guys, that all for now, more tonight or tomorrow, wanns get some paint on this one soon. hope the weather gets better so as for drying better.

Abbas-it,

You're doing an awesome job so don't take this as critisim, merely a suggestion.

The detail work is so stunning I cringe every time you show a hole drilled through it. How about making the fan manually rotate to reveal the controls behind it? Kinda like you did with the sliding webcam cover up top.

Since I would probably mess up the powerplug hole if I tried something like this; I will take full credit for the whole project if you implement my idea! ;-)

hey mal hows it going, and dont worry no offense taken. yeah that would be a nice idea too.
the fan is actually a dummy, even though i did think of making a real one. if i had then letting it open to show the buttons would have indeed been a good idea.
but since i wanted to get it tough enough and to hold the servo fan ctrl. i made it this way, its not exactly finishe yet though. will change a lot. the knob is too big too, will also change.
much much more to come. havent even started the rear yet either. i have a lot more surprises coming. am glad you like it

I think you misunderstand me slightly. Im not suggesting making a real fan (though Im sure YOU could and it would be cool!). Keep it solid and hollowed out like you have; just make the whole thing rotate right or left to reveal the controls behind.

Im living vicariously through your talent. I will stop now. Carry on.

just amini update, have changed the monitor stud buttins to chrome instead of copper.
seeing as the eyelets leather bands will be chrome too, they match better
more to come..have changed the form of the knob too a bit.
