    Thank you very much everybody !
    I am very happy to be nominated for MoTM :D

    I know updates are a bit slower here, but forgive me plz :p
    Here is a new one !

    I started painting the whole project. Fist the basic paint for a texture on the pillars.

    [​IMG]

    Then I painted the pillars with a new kind of paint … well … it gives a texture to it :d
    Here you see what I mean.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that a new layer of that paint

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I started to choose the color of the case … ended up with this one :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes, the paint is dark olive green and sometimes it is gray looking…

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I also started on the bottom of the inside of the case. There will be a mat plexi sheet, with the logo of Guerrilla (developers of the killzone games)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Inside the case it will look like this:

    [​IMG]

    After that I made the logo on paper :D

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    The logo will be black offcoure, that’s a nice color with the orange :D

    Here is the result, a bit blurry but just as I wanted it to be ;)

    [​IMG]

    Remember the vacuum cleaner pipe? I gave it a dark accent.

    [​IMG]

    Before:
    [​IMG]

    And After
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Nothing special … just to finish the CD drive slot
    [​IMG]

    And now I am painting the whole case with primer.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Sorry for bad quality

    That’s it for now , If everything will go smoothly then this project is ended in mid-november and then I can start with my new project.

    thats a great case mod. love the craftsmanship you put into it. very creative and inovative if ya ask me. btw its a bit on the bulky side how much does it weigh? and did u put any casters under the base?

    o btw what kinda goodies are inside ? if its a gaming pc im sure its packed full of nice equipment.

    either way grats on the finish and good luck at the show..

    hehe thankyou very much :D

    I put the case on the weight scale and it says 24 kilograms - that's about 52.8 pounds if I use the converter :p

    The hardware inside is just for a medium pc now,
    An Intel E8200 Core2Duo (2.66GHz x2)
    2Gigs of DDR2-800 memory - But I think I will buy an extra 2GB when I'm going to use it for games
    Graphics: ATI HD4580 - I bought it in august, it was cheap with very good performance
    mobo: MSI P45 NEO2 - ATI crossfire ready with "new" P45 chipset

    Well ... I can play all normal games, crysis in medium/high with a good FPS-rate

    I'm packing the case for the show now , long live ducktape ! (on the outside of the box ofcourse :lol:)

    its a great machine you did very well none the less. 52 lbs is a bit of weight you might wanna think about some kind of wheels under the case but thats just an idea.

    good luck at the show let us all know how u did
