    Hi guys,

    my next project is in progress.
    I started it in December 2017 after i recieved a few parts of Cooler Master.

    My origins lie in the German Black Forest and i had the idea to merge a traditional german cuckoo clock with a multimedia PC.

    For that i made few scratch designs and how i could build the whole project but in the end i started to build free.

    Materials used will be:
    - 3/6mm plywood (first it's easy to work with, second it's cheap so errors might not hurt that much)
    - 3D printed stuff
    - Acrylic sheet for windows etc.

    Hardware is actually not decided yet.
    So far i got:

    - Cooler Master MasterWatt 500
    - Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 120
    - 2 Cooler Master MasterFan Pro RGB
    - a SanDisk SSD Plus 240GB

    The style i chose for the case is planed to have 2 different front designes - i hope this will work out.
    - First a half timbered house front style with a clock tower
    - second something more modern designed

    Some pictures now of the actual progress:

    building the base on 6mm plywood - with 2 120mm holes for the fans.

    this is the basic design i ended up with

    first works on the front of the case - with 3d printed window frames.

    this is what it will kinda look like later.

    first time i use filler on 3d printed stuff (not printing that much) - left it unsanded because i want the frames to look shabby. painted them afterwards in burned umber, a dark brown acrylic color.

    and started to fill the areas between the frames with styrofoam (white acrylic to make it more look like a real wall.
