Mobo and mobo-tray are gorgeous! I can't wait to see the full case painted
Just read through the log, really impressive manual work and such attention to detail and laser precision of those cuts, that red paint really finishes it of too, it even looks to add a nice metallic texture, adding to the realism of metal.
we proceed construction of the bumper ...
the covers on the top are divided into 2 parts to facilitate my work, the final part of the tail will be LED with cyberpunk 2077 logo
side covers also here I will make various pieces that will be joined a little at a time
the pump and the tank will be in evidence essentially the covers will run around the tank will be filled with red liquid ....
well a lot of work .. modification of the frame (another time) on the back yaiba I turn the illuminated logo but to do this I need to create a space where to place the led strip I take advantage of the support.
ainting of the pistons, base of altracite gray and silver finish with solvete talken (a bomb)
and now silver finish, these pistons will hardly be seen but I want to take care of every aspect.
an LCD screen will be placed on the front the cyberpunk logo will be displayed in loop
in the meantime other panel painting ..
side panels where the air inlets will be present later everything will be clearer.
folding for 3 times
I realize that the acrylic has deformed in cooling down I have to fix it with putty to keep all the lines flat I apply some fiberglass putty to fill the curved areas and then some body filler which is much smoother and workable.
give a coat of primer to make sure that the surface is completely smooth and without holes.
much better but I already see that areas need retouching ..
I proceed with a coat of primer on the bracket frame (coolermaster) for the gpu and suspension arms after coat of anthracite gray
Awesome quality paint work as always
now it's time to install the 5 "LCD screen it will be positioned on the front and will contain the looped CYBERPUNK logo first I create the supports I do not want to see screws outside the case and I prepare the 2 guides on which the monitor will be mounted
I calculate the measures and thicknesses well
I found these beautiful threaded nuts, in Italy they count an eye but on aliexpress they pull them back ..
they have finally arrived and therefore I put everything together I drill a 4mm hole and place the data on top
with the soldering iron all I do is place it on top
with the soldering iron all I do is place it on top and as if by magic the acrylic around melts all around and sinks into butter and then cools down immediately
great a clean and fast job
now it's time for the very delicate stage placement
my faithful glue ..
to best position the whole use as data shims and washers.
there he is..
Really upping your game with filler and primer The stats screen was a genius idea
learned from the master....
today's work, creation of the housing of the 2 SSDs positioned on the outside of the case well visible on the back the discs will also be modded and painted first step I disassemble them and prepare their surface with primer-
prepare the structure .. if I have not done wrong my calculations should be like this, the graphics may change and it is temporary.
I create the threaded supports for mounting the case panel ..
I still have to decide well the color for the paint or metallic red or anthracite ..
I create a panel that will be led with samurai logo ... will have two functions the first to fill the inside of the case and the other to hide some cables as well as give a nice extra touch to the whole mod. I start with the construction of the panel that will follow the shape of the motherboard tray
and now the support, an angled aluminum strip and I use it as a support will be fixed to the central plate of the case
aluminum bends very easily but cannot do it too much otherwise it breaks, the position of the corners must be studied well and moved as little as possible ...
the LEDs will be positioned on the side in the recess of the strip
in the meantime, touch up on the base structure of the case and then go to paint
I'm loving every bit of this.
I will admit it's hard to keep up with you. Your building and posting pace is relentless. So if it seems like the forum is quiet, it's because we ran out of compliments and don't want to repeat.
hahahahahahha thank you!!
Very very nice, a lot of update finally! Good Work!
painting application of silver (I will save you the dilution because done other times) these are all the panels that will make up the internal structure and that will decisively strengthen the whole case support panels, led door, and main panel on which the motherboard will be mounted.
ssd bay done
now after months the yaiba begins to unfold and show itself in all its glory for those who have followed me in these months will feel great satisfaction in seeing the assembly some lateral supports. essentially these panels are connected to each other with threaded steel cores and thicknesses keep them in place it was very complicated to distribute all the space as everyone knows I don't use machinery and everything was hand made old school.
now it's time to insert the structure inside the frame and fix everything permanently ..
here is a lot of anthracite gray but it will be 40% when all the external parts in metallic red are inserted
More fantastic work always perfect attention to detail
I' am speechless
I like where this is going. Excellent weathering.
Oh, and since you're doing a stats screen: check out Samurize and Rainmeter.
