    Gorgeous! Always nice to see a fellow Dutchman pull something this cool off.
    Loving the detail on the turbine but actually I really dig that fan-pipe-to-cpucooler assembly. Very inventive!

    Yes thats fun to watch, very helpfull :thumb:

    Thx!!

    Same here!

    lol thx


    Thanx/dank u

    Did some changes at the back end of the turbine to finish this looking like the original drawing, except for the teeth i tried to make it match almost exactly.

    [​IMG]

    Took a cap from a spray can.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The 3 little fins helps to center the cone, which was a little "off"

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Redid some of the wiring at the side

    [​IMG]

    Final result

    [​IMG]

    As u wish, sure it will

    [​IMG]

    Did some shopping in the mean time as well

    I was looking for a replacement of my old (very tough build) IBM keyboards and i stumbled onto this

    [​IMG]

    The keypad can be taken out for easy cleaning, optional keypads for specific games are on the market, this is a nice board!

    [​IMG]

    Gamepad, headphone and mouse can be plugged in at the back

    [​IMG]

    Roccat Kone which comes with extra weights

    [​IMG]

    And a handy wireless gamepad

    [​IMG]

    So after a nice R&R its time for part 2 of this project, dressing up the DvD Drive, i pretty much figured out how to do this, don't expect this to be finished very quickly

    Samsung SH-222 drive which comes with 2 extra faceplates, ivory and silver.

    [​IMG]

    This is part of a Warhammer landing pad which i can use for the ceiling part

    [​IMG]

    The turbine is going to be hanging under this

    [​IMG]

    As of now gathering materials for the ceiling, sidepanels and backpanel.

    :eeek: I really love the detail in this one!
    I always admire people who can make those things.. It looks so realistic as in that it could be a real scale model of an existing engine!
