    Hello! It's time to show my new mod here! I made it for a competition so it's already finished but I just like to show the progress to more people. I'm very proud of the result and to be honest I did not think I would finish it like this haha!

    Here are the sketches, the mod is based on a Cooler Master HAF XB!

    I rather like the folded door. Sort of reminds me of an old school record player.

    Neat! It doesn't look like there's much HAF left in the final design.

    Looking at the renders only, it looks like a scratch build, impresive modification of the HAF XB.

    Waiting to see how this ends.

    Update 3

    So, I cut of every little piece of HAF that I don't need. Pretty much left though! Cut out the part for the acryl glass part of the case aswell.

    Update 4

    There we are again!! Sleeving and paint! Everything has to get another color of course and also sleeving is very important to me!

    Vanilla sands, shade 19 and copper brown from MDPC-X.

    Copper colored paint, matched perfect with the sleeving!

    And vanilla color. These two colors will be for the case etc.
    [​IMG]

    And lets start painting

    The fan, will get copper colored sleeve.
