Greetings to all! This is my first post here, and I want to start a worklog of my case mod. First of all, please excuse me for poor English. I'll try to do my best, but I really have a big lack of practice. I came here after my friend aio (maybe you've seen his Streamliner casemod ). I also was related to that project, but now I want to tell you about my own one (of course, not so impressive and loaded with options). My case mod is named Felix. It will pay tribute to the Soviet electronics of 1940s–60s, with a little touch of fiction. I attempted to imagine how Soviet personal computers could look like if they were built in 50s instead of late 80s. Original “Felix” was a very famous and widespread mechanical calculator produced in the USSR from 20s to late 70s. So my case mod would be its imaginary “younger brother” which uses electricity instead of mechanics for computing. As a source case I chose an old Ascot 6AR6. I examined lots of old soviet devices looking for design ideas. One of the main sources of inspiration was this 50s tube oscilloscope SI-1 which I've bought as a junk and then restored to working condition. For a long time I collected different gauges, tubes, switches and so on. Most of them were found while wandering around junkyards of National Nuclear Research University where I studied earlier. I have my own way how to develop a design of a front panel. I choose suitable parts, take photos of them on black background with the same lighting, and then manipulate their images in a graphic editor. But please let me not to place all the cards on a table. For now I'll demonstrate you a rough copy of a drawing showing the front panel and a frame around it. The whole design will be revealed a bit later . Thanks for attention!
