thank you, that s right i have to take off this sticker for a better look
to obtain the same rust effect all over the parts it is just necessary to respect the times between the differents coats of paint
you make me a proud belgian... great work again...
Wow this is gonna be really good when its done, really nice idea you have here, Im not to keen on the bright orange plastic on the fans but im sure It'll look good when ur done
This is looking amazing. that fan grill is one of the most inspired attempts i've seen, truly awesome.
How did you achieve that bullet hole effect? is it just a vinyl stickers or is the perspex actually cracked around the holes?
.: Fillip :.
the bullets holes were make with a dremel and the cracks around are lettered on the other side of plastic
The grill looks really good like this without the rust on it. It gives more contrast than after it is painted. Kinda appears that it is a different type of metal (Maybe stainless steel). It would look really good if it was "tarnished" just a little bit but not rusted. The rust looks awesome, even on this piece, but just thought it might help break things up a bit if you had some contrast between the two different types of metal. Just my .02 cents. I still think it looks great painted and I am sure you have many more awesome things in mind!
Dude, this is turning out amazing.
One idea,actualy a couple... Ha ha ha! You could take some of the metal parts and then gently punch some bullet holes through it and then somehow use your dremel to cut some acid looking burns through some spots with little rivulets(sp) like flowing acid down some spots... and then some thermite burned and fragmentation grenade semi impaled shrapnel hanging out parts inside.... make the lighting flicker and stutter like some scenes where the lighting is messed up!
Hope these ideas help and Get 'er done!!!
I see what you re thinking about, but I have some good others plans to give a contrast with the rust of the case
like the bullet effect pills
yes and many others you could see in the future
I see that your brain is warming like mine
I like the flicker lightning idea, I didn't want to put other lights than UV into this project but now... well I don't know may be ... for the acid I plan to do something very special, but I haven't found the stuff I need for it now
or u can make a new sticker in relation to HL ! or a "born to frag" sticker
few strikes of ideas when reading this awesome project:
- a fan-bus with small valves instead of classical rheo
- red digits to display cpu temp with "scientifical instrument" look
does some part of paint/rust get off when u touch it ?
That is why you are one talented modder!!
wow I m very impressed to see the amount of people giving lot of nice ideas by looking this thread, greats ideas too there, I take notes
Someone has a good imagination. Your work is awesome so far. Keep it up!
Very nice work on the grills! I think that bullet hole one might cause some whistling sort of noise though as air passes through it... You might want to switch back to the other one..
Unless you undervolt the fan, in which case, nevermind
I haven't try it yet but I dont think so because the most part of the airflow will come from the space between the case and the rust panel and not a lot by the holes
here is a pic to better show you what I mean
