    Time for a new project.

    This time only something simple, cause I had to finish the mod in only 8 days to
    ship it to Taiwan for computex.

    As you can may tell from the title, the theme is Pokemon :D

    The base will be the Level20 from Thermaltake.

    So first a pic of the used parts.

    The Level20 is one hell of a case, 32kg of pure case (empty)

    [​IMG]

    First I removed all the uneccesary parts. So basically everything.

    [​IMG]

    I will start with the top compartment. Later each section will have its different theme.
    My plan for this part is, to include 3 water tanks an ad a little detail in the tanks.

    [​IMG]

    Cause water tanks alone look a bit boring, I 3d printed a small ring.
    This ring will also hold them in place later.

    As a base, I cut a piece of plywood
    and included the holes for the cylinders as well as the fittings.

    First test looks good already.

    That kit list looks like your wallet/credit card took a (UK shoe) size 12 square in the undercarriage... :eeek:

    Next, I built a back panel for the construction that hold the water tanks.

    [​IMG]

    To hide the wooden grain, I first primed everything with white Gesso.

    [​IMG]

    Then gray paint was rolled on the surface.

    [​IMG]

    I designed, cut and dabbed on a thin detail line in a darker tone.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Inside the small cut outs, i fitted acrylic glas for a small LED effect.

    [​IMG]

    Over the acrylic glas, I glued a cover. I also attached the 3D printed ring that will hold the water tanks.

    [​IMG]

    Then I put the LEDs into place. I also installed the water tanks and added the fittings in the colors
    of the first starter pokemon of the game for the Game Boy.

    [​IMG]

    Next up, I will use this little fellows here.

    Looks like you plan on some really tight tube bends there.
    I have no clue what pokemon is supposed to look like, so I'm trusting your judgement. :D I'm just here for the mod.
