    Time for a new Project :thumb::rock:

    It´s based on a CM Mastercase and it will be built for our little Sister.

    She was in need of a new System and her last mod [roku] is also several years old so we decided that the time has come for something new.:thumb:

    And after a few discussions with her, we finally found a theme for this build; which is Alice in Wonderland / Alice Madness.

    So, this time it starts with a grin.....

    I hope that you are going to paint that thing ;) Pink color is quite aggressive to the eyes. I love the 3D printed parts though.

    Lol Ty m8s!!!!

    i can totally understand that, that model of the cheshire cat really rocks! (you can find it on thingiverse) :thumb: but its also just an add on for the case.....

    ty!!! and sure it will be painted....but i have to disappoint you...because it will be painted in pink and purple :D:wallbash:


    ty!!! and yes this time we use special UV-Paint so that the Colors react on UV-Light ... for that special effect on that special cat....:D


    :D ah Dave my sexy Bear is stepping in with his raw masculinity.....

    it´s always some kind of soap dropping moment.....



    that would be a really nice feature...but can´t find a resin which can do a decent nagging....:D

    As announced, we continued our work with the sidepanel. So we first took the sidepanel of and made a quick pencil drawing on it....just to discuss the exact position & shape of the window....

    [​IMG]


    .....after that we could print out a piece of fence which we will mount on the sidepanel to give the complete mod a bit more structure....

    [​IMG]

    And then we started the cutting process on the sidepanel....

    [​IMG]

    And we overworked the mounting bracket for the CPU Cooler so that it matches the overall "wood" theme of the mod.....

    We also overworked the paint on the radiator a little bit, so that the wood grain gets darker then before and we also prepared the Fans for the Radiator & Case for a fresh coat of paint....

    Beside that we also start the airbrushing process on the 2nd sidepanel...so that we could add our printed mad hatter to the panel afterwards....

    thank you!:clap: and you don´t have to wait that long....only until tomorrow....:D

    As next we added some last details to the Front Panel, after that we also mounted the prepared door knob...so that the front panel is nearly finished....

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Then we build a custom reservoir which we could mount under the Top of the Case....

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    After finishing the reservoir...we directly mounted it inside the case so that we could start bending the rigid tubing and add some water....

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    And last but not least we mounted the mad hatter & the piece of fence on our sidepanels....
