    Its been a crazy summer & fall , and has been a blast with my family and friends, but back into the garage i go for a few projects. First project is the New Cooler master Scout 2 case, Having a military name and theme on the box i am definitely going a camo theme

    The case has a very sleek design and the Handle on top is great for lan gaming

    [​IMG]

    I like the window, but since i will be watercooling i will be removing the fan grills and making it bigger
    [​IMG]

    planning on removing one or both hard drive cages to make room for teh water cooling
    [​IMG]

    Time to break it all down

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    using the scout insignia on the side panel

    Camo paracord just need in a few other builds this will be perfect.

    One would think growing up hunting a fishing i would be able to paint camo that wasnt the case lol . It took me three tries and several stencils before i begin to like the design .
    sanded and Primed

    black then brown

    The paint job turned out great but I think the skull could be improved. I am excited to see more. Makes me want to get to work right now.

    A little break for the holiday Back to modding, Adding another cut out on the case . using a new blade and u can make some nice tight cuts with this.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cm red

    [​IMG]

    but the finish looks pretty good
    [​IMG]

    Making room for the 240 rad for the front of the case, The optical drive bays made it too snug, i no longer use optical drives so one less bay wont hurt. so time to bring the dremal out

    [​IMG]

    Fits now

    Stayed tuned more to come!!

    Hi, I dont understand why you black spray the frame of the 120mm fans, there are everywhere online plenty of fans available with black frame

    Cos you use what you already got and change it, thats modding aint it?

    I think it looks good, my opinion, im not overly struck on the guns and skull on the side panel. That aside its a nice mod, good looking camo.
