    So I am back again with the design I did for the reservoir stand and some other parts for my mod.

    Here is the latest technology on CNC cutting machines and offcourse my orange fluorescent acrylic ready to be cut!

    Here are the parts for the res stand, the window for the wings, and a piece that I will create a sun for the right side panel

    Here are some pictures of the workshop

    You wont believe what that workshop can create! Until the website is done you can contact mr. Chris Kozis at kozisc@cytanet.com.cy with any design created on Corel Draw (cdr, eps format) or Illustrator. Also you can ask for a creation, even if this is a pc case, or anything else you like (box for your watercooling components etc). There is a huge variety of colours, just ask and mr.Chris will be happy to answer to your emails!

    And here is my Asus GTX 295... ready to be watercooled!!

    Looking great so far, I also like your impressive set of machines you've got to work with. Do you have any sketches or 3D renders of what the case will look like when its finished?

    Cool AXYS table. My router is of the same brand, but much older.
    AXYS is down the street from my workshop - it's an impressive facility.

    Build is looking good - eagerly waiting for more.

    The acrylic parts that it would be double I prefer to use CNC for accurate cuts. The rest... I will use the old fashion way! :) :) :)

    So here I am with the work I ve done on the front bezel (which is not done yet!) but I would like to show some progress.

    I will also make a video later on with all of the process for the creation with the wings attached on.

    Rotary tool kit on action! (I couldnt find any hole saw on that size in my country... God I hate this:wallbash:)

    Fiber glass ....

    [​IMG]

    Isopon 38 for the smooth finish

    [​IMG]

    Here is almost the final look. I used a special technique with 40... yes 40 layers of 2 different colors (fluorescent orange and black mat) and primer along the way. To make the orange color darker i used black and to make that brighter I used primer. For the sculpture I used a small sculpting tool for wood. That technique took me 8 days....

    I' ll post more pictures as soon as I finish this!

    Are you sure about going with UV green plus the black n orange? Might look a little off, IMO.

    I wanna say something to all my fellow modders and pc enthusiasts about the way I think!
    I ve seen a lot of mods in my life and I ve noticed something. Some of them they are so complcated with so many blink blinks, litlle lcd's popping out from everywhere etc etc. For me a nice mod is a functional mod with simple lines and beauty! U can paint your case red and add a watercooling system and maybe will look waaaaaaaaaay better of a mod that costs 6000 dollars with all of these useless thingies on it! This is my humble opinion. Btw, modding is art and we are some goddamn good artists!!! ;)

    Couldn't agree more.
    I prefer the subtle myself, but I'm going to break that tendency a little this summer :blush:

    I need some help, I have 2 Vandal switches but... no instructions came with them.

    Try PM'ing Bill Owens (mnpctech). His site has them, so I'd assume he'd know how to solve the issue.
    Or wait, I'm sure someone would drop by with a fix. :)
