A fun project.
Such a tight but perfect fit for the components.
this has been a really fun first project, I can not wait to start using and enjoying this build soon.
update #2 for today
sneak peak of the system before wet sanding and buffing
here is a sneak peak at the paint after buffing
this post will put the build up to date
at this point the nes is now finished painted and buffed every piece is now fabricated and all that is left is to put this beast together and take some nice pics for you guys.
here is the first piece being installed for the final build of the nes(hopefully). This also gave me a chance to practice a bit with my Wife's dslr.
sorry about about all the pics of just a fan,I just got carried away with this camera.
You might say you are a fan of your own work.
final pics will be dropping soon, this thing has blown away my own expectations.
made me smile quite a bit!
The new I/O panel, I am now using internal laptop antennas. removing the antennas cleaned up the back of the case quite a bit.
to the left of the hdmi is the power inputs and to the top right is the usb cutout.
I can't wait to see this mod done. It's been a journey, and I've really enjoyed watching you make it
Thanks, it has been quite the journey.
well keep your eyes pealed, pics will be up in a few days!
Wow what a tease
The paint job makes it look so much nicer
well the time has come for me to do the final reveal of the NES. It has been a long ride ,but I am very happy I took my time and did not rush this build. I am still without words to describe how happy I am with the end product.
well enough with the talk I know you guys want the pics! So I bring to you..
What a conclusion! Congratulations on the sweet end product. Hope you'll enjoy it. It's a small machine packed with a decent punch
Why the mechanical HDD though? Surely a mechanical drive creates a lot of unnecessary noise and heat.
Nice and tidy little system. Do love that small PSU. Great job !
I see this and say "why?" but then I respond " Why not!!!"
I'd have aimed for original colours as best as possible but it still looks awesome!
I think it looks great - I was worried when you customised the case because I like to see the box or container keeping most of its original charm. I think you've come out doing it rather tastefully.
I am one of those people who hates carbon fibre design and think it doesn't look nice or appealing, but it isn't completely awful here. The vents on the side are a bit gaudy, I would've preferred something more... minimalist but I admit that you've done a pretty good job here.
The retro nerd is happy.
Impressive! I like the selection of the hardware you have done and how you manage to put everybody in that case! Quick question, where did you get this special HDMI cable?
this is the best part of the build is using it,as it was purposed built!
I need at least 1tb of storage for my needs and at the time of buying my hardware that would of set me back $350 for a cheapy, But I will be upgradeing probaly after summer to a 1tb ssd.
I'll share on this log when I do
one of my goals from the get go was to keep its charm while giving in a modern time twist.
stay tuned I have a little retro surprise you might like That I have not shared yet!
from aliexpress or baba. there is no link for it ether I had to get in touch with the manufacturer and see if they made one with the right angle and they did. I ordered this as soon as I found it ,I was not even sure if I needed it. searched for a week straight just for this part.
