Hey all. Just signed up recently. I'd thought I'd share my concept for a mod I'm thinking about putting together. My father collects antique radios. From what he tells me, the 'Holy Grail' of antique radios is a Sparton Bluebird, designed by Walter Dorwin Teauge in the mid 1930's. A master of Art Deco design, he fabricated several mirrored glass and chromed metal radios that have fetched upwards of $10K-$20K US ( waaaay outta my leauge! ). This floor model is called the 'Nocturne' Bluebird and it stands about 45" high: This is the desktop Bluebird radio, and it sits at about 14.5" high: There is a 'mini' replica of the desktop model out there (8" tall) made of acrylic. The feet are different: So I thought it would be cool to build a replica bluebird desktop model out of a small form factor PC for my father. This won't be super hardcore modding, mind you. No LCD/VFD, no funky lights, as it's basically a box with an elaborate blue mirror on the front. The dial has some lights to illuminate it, but that's it. The dials up front would power the box, fan speed, cd eject(?). Maybe I'll make the dial a volt meter. I'm going to try and keep it as true to the original as possible. I tooled around in Illustrator to map it out a bit: Full Size (BIG!) Color: Full Size (BIG!) I have no experience with small form factor PC's. This will most likely be built from the ground up in acrylic. The grill in the front is perfect to draw in air from the fans. I'll have the DVD/CD leap out of the side of the box, rather than have it come out of the front anywhere to keep the design. The box behind the glass can go as far back as I need it to since it will be hidden behind the mirror (wow. an entirely stealthed PC!). Lemme know what you think, if you have any hints for me about small form factors, etc., that would be great. Thanks for looking!
