    On the first page, that colour picture of her will be printed onto an overhead sheet. She'll then be cut out and attacked to the window. Thats why I liked the Idea of White... CCFLs but I might go Blue, or maybe green.

    /start OT:

    OMG! I b!tch about the same thing every week. I hate it for the same reason! A 5 year old likes firemen so they make a room with ladders, and crap. I mean WTF. Hes 5!!! In like a week he will be into lawyers for god sake. I am just excited someone thinks the same thing.

    /end OT

    Mmm loving it so far man. I know your pain on finding time to get stuff done. I really want to just take a semester off school and work on cases.

    They're only kids once... besides let the parents live through their kids a little. That and if I have learned one thing while modding you can change the paint later.

    Well, as I've pretty much reinterated in every post, I've had alot on my plate school wise, work wise, and life in general. When I do have "free" time, it is usually spent reading chapters for class or writting an essay. Currently I'm bogged down in a Statistical Hypothesis. Its taking forver.

    I should be able to get a lot done next month, but as it stands, this mod is moving slowly.

    I'll update later tonight on the PSU I just got for the case, its an OCZ ModStream 450W.

    Okay, This is a TOTAL project resurrection!

    Sunday I ordered:

    Gigabyte K8NSC-939 nVidia Socket 939 ATX Motherboard / Audio / 4x/8x AGP / Gigabit LAN / USB 2.0 / Serial ATA

    AMD Athlon 64 3200+ / 512KB Cache / 2000 MHz FSB / Socket 939 / Processor with Fan

    Seagate / 300GB / 7200 / 8MB / SATA-150 / OEM / Hard Drive

    In honour of this momentous purchase, I have decided to retire Hive Mind as my main rig, and Finish Bebop for the new hardware.

    Here's what we've all been waiting for...

    UPDATES!!!

    [​IMG]
    Beginning to cut the right panel.

    [​IMG]
    Close up of my cutting methods for the hand.

    [​IMG]
    The semi-finished results (no sanding/debarring done yet, just the raw cut)

    [​IMG]
    Close-up of the face and hair. (This is a silhouette btw)

    [​IMG]
    And the progress I made on the Right panel tonight.

    I'll be finishing the cut tomorrow after work, and then I'll be sanding and debarring the left and right panels for a while...

    I have yet to determine if I will be painting the exterior black, or some sort of High-gloss red with a crazy black pattern. I also cant decide on what colour the chassis should be, or what colour CCFLs will be used.

    Suggestions? Comments?

    (I appologise ofr the 3 month Gap.. :sigh: )

    that is great that you are able to put some more time into this. I really enjoyed cowboy bebop and the work you have so far looks great. As posted earlier on the PSU i think you should change the cable color if you havent decided to already... cant wait for the next update. :D

    I had a OCZ 520 Modstream, the 12 volt rail was unstable, with a 3500+ and a asus board, sold it off and got a 600watt enermax.

    also i think ocz are rebranded tagens.

    Anyway I hope this doesnt set you back, keep the good work up :p

    Again with the Updates!

    [​IMG]
    I finished the rough cuts on the right panel, I think they've turned out pretty well, even though they havent gone through the finishing stages yet!

    [​IMG]
    And a close up...

    [​IMG]
    The top panel without "Jet" on it.

    [​IMG]
    And last, but not least, my new Hardware came today!!!!

    I was drooling all over it this evening.

    I plan to start the finishing of the 3 panels, and hopefully find a coloured acrylic distributor in Canada... So far no luck.. :(
