damn nice work... geting cloose to your dream
First lets make some place for the hoses and steam.
And bring on the prime.
That green looks pretty nice doesnt it?
And yup sometimes you can wait and its going wrong. The skai is a disasterand ruins the intire project, so we leave the skai alone and I am going to make the strucure on its head and body by my self. After this its going to be sprayed and finished with the airbrush
Close up of its shoulder.
I like this more then a peace of Skai. Skai would blur my work. This gives more satisfaction imo
Because of this change you are missing some sticking work of the Skai but if that is a really miss………
Lets go on with imitating its skin with the plaster. On its back is also a layer (not yet finished).
A peace of the back of its Head too.
A part of its head.
The resevoirs are able to get in or out.
The buildup of an layer. The bottum is in this case smooth and no grease.
Just putting a clot of plaster on it.
And more clots of plaster.
Just putting here and there some more just to be precice.
And when finished it likes a peace of skin.
And one form close view. Later this will be spraypainted. The accents are done by airbrush.
Until the next update.
Looking better and better by the day. Keep going.
What is "skai"?
Yeh i was wondering that too
It's a sort of imitation leather I believe. Great mod Ediejo! , following this at GOT every single day .
This weekend I testing the hardware, than that job is don.
Very nice motherboard from Epox.
And 15 min later Windows is running.
First benchmark results.
Stock 06 3DMark06 6274
little oc on air. 3DMark06 6794
Also the new power supply from Be Quiet is very stabile
And one night shot from the motherboard.
I know is a bit late in the day, but did you think having detachable wings for ease of movement of your magnificent case……
Looking forward to seeing it completed…..
I know you have might of thought about it. What about a making it breath fire... (mini smoke machine)
The First peace of the Case is being spray painted. Where did I saw this colour again , ghehe little Brother.
The PSU of be quiet is being placed like this. With behind it the pomps, the dvd player has still to come
As you can see here there are coming into its body. Its getting time to put the mobo in it so we can see if all the cables are fitting
Let’s get on with recreating its skin with the plaster. I am still not finished with and so are you
Here it is adjusted.
Did the bottom of its body
Photographed in a other way
Its back is finished too.
From the other side
Now I can start with taping here and there
Trying to find back the holes for the reservoir mounting. Luckily I got an extra mold to use
Get rid of to much plaster with the file.
Those will fit again
Always coming @ handy an old case. I really can use this
The dvdrom and the harddisk still fit. As you can see I attached a peace of tape on the iron plate.
Like this it’s easy to mark the holes
Another little peace from the old case. It has to come here, it is still a bit high, but finished with a grinder in no time. I still have to bring the weld car @ home, to weld it. This will come this week.
Inside the pyramid it was almost @ its place, now it’s perfect and for control it is still on top of it
With this mess I could not find my hammer. But making those markings will also work with this.
Time to drill.
I am going on with spraying the bottom plate tomorrow.
Forgot something the rubbers. The rubbers also give more space between the plate and pomps
Then getting the spray-paint for the primer
Here it is sprayed
Same time made the holder for the DvD rom and Harddisk
A friend told me to use paverpol for its wings
Mxing in every colour
Putting a peace of skai in it
Let is dry for a while to see I fit sticks ( the product package says so I say it doesn’t )
This with the paverpol is not going to work. So time to get some special paint to spay @ skai with. Don’t pay attention @ the color this will be painted yellow later
Trying to make the shape of its ear
Who is using fishing wire in its mod? wel I do
I am making the ore in like this, later a layer of plaster over the iron to make a skin look a like
And this will hide the fishngwire
Drilling a few holes in the polyester @ size 1,5 mm
First peace is in.
Drilling more holes.
The beginning of its wing is there
The lower peace of its wing is now also attached to its body. I still had to drill some more 1,5 mm holes in 3 mm iron.
Putting it gently under pressure with a few grabbing hooks, not to tight otherwise it will brake.
No it isn’t look for the difference, the skai is now attached @ the rounding of its claw
Maybe it will work to attaché the 2 peaces of skai @ the middle peace in one time.
Now you can see how big it is going to be
Cutting it @ size roughly
Drilling holes in the polyester. Now you understand why there is a peace of polyester around its claw. Easier to drill to iron.
Photo's say more than words, so i put the pic's online. Make your one words for that.
And more photo's
Wow nice work with the wing, it's really starting to take shape now. Thats gonna look so ace before it's even painted
Most outrageous case i have seen yet. Bravo on the work done so far. Personally I would use somthing like this to showcase a server in my home or a game server at a lan party. This is Awsome!
I second that. Most cases i have seen here, while they are cool, don't go outside the standard box type. This sculpture is amazing. Your constant updates are real nice too. I love coming home from school and seeing the new stuff you've done.
this mod is coming out quite nice, im impressed in how its evolved.
Where did you get the Epox 9nf4 sli 2? it isnt supposed to ship in the US for a week, i love Epox and cant wait to get one!
There are only 2 of this bords in the world Epox make them special for the Cebit and I got 1 And it is a nice motherbord.
Here are the first benchmarks from the fastest pc from the Nederland’s.
Poster with the specs.
You can click on the benchmark results.
It is true NVIDIA knock out ATI
And here the results with a FX-60 CPU
When you are so close to the 9000 than you push the CPU a little bit to make it 9000 points after the Cebit I put the hardware in the Extreme Lian Li to try to beat the 11000 point's in 06. On the Cebit I have seen 10500 points in 3DMark06 and the don’t have use so much cooling as I have in the extreme lian li. Point of View is a Dutch company so the must have the highest 3DMark score and now the have it.
IMHo it has to be compressorchilled to be one of the fastest or the fastest rig of the Netherlands.
if this case was for cebit 06 i take it, its now finished? any chance of some more photos? thanks
