    Work set to start this weekend pending if Connor is up to it :thumb:


    It really is! words can't describe how proud we are, when we reach the end it will be something we'll always cherish:clap:

    Sorry guys we didn't get any real work done this weekend.

    The weather has been so nice and some overdue time with family took prioirty. Which was was needed after the amount of time me and Connor have spent on this project already.

    We did managed to squeeze into a small amount of time to mock up a window cut for the case.

    The Antec One is really nice case for the price. Just needed a little something we thought.

    We've had a few shipments in the last few days and another due on Monday. This part list for this build minus a CPU is done now. Will update post one with system specs on Monday

    The amount of things still announce is will blow your minds, Really need to keep pushing for a CPU support though

    First Post updated.

    Just a small update today. Connor did what he could, we'll plan to finish up tomorrow.

    The following are mocks only. Not final

    Antec Case (2nd prize)
    The window had been already mocked up,

    [​IMG]


    We had a minor slip drilling some pilot holes for the jigsaw. Never mind


    Time to cut it.
    [​IMG]

    Was a rough ride but he got it done!
    [​IMG]






    Time to mark the window
    [​IMG]

    Tools ready..Check
    [​IMG]

    Connor wanted the window to sit flat and not behind the side panel. We plan to achieve this using some channel moulding.

    Work is still rough and requires some sanding & Filing to be done.

    Connor will be working something like this

    Comsos II...I hear ya
    I guess you mean the bottom right? Think its just a the lighting, as it's just a score line,chalk and pen.

    I should been clearer, today works is literally a mock up, lots to tidy/file up etc. The window will be cut again ,after the panel is done ;)

    Indeed this many sponsors is mind boggling..but amazing!

    You guys have my full support. I have been diagnosed with Narcolepsy for 3 years now but the doctors seem to think I have had it since the age of 15(ish). Your son is very lucky to have been diagnosed so early. I had trouble at school, I couldnt concentrate on anything and ended up going down the wrong path as a consequence. Everyone thought I was lazy, even I thought I was lazy.

    Im not sure I can help in any way but im certainly subbed on this one.

    Ok little update to Antec Case (2nd prize)

    The inspiration for the design comes from both a recent event Antec attended (Insomnia), They had huge black and yellow banners above their booths. Its also a bit of a nod to someone that has been most supportive to us throughout.

    The work took a little longer than anticipated, Connor couldn’t get a the desired finish on the test panels with the masking tape we had at hand. We used some adhesive plastic, which has 1cm grids on their..which helped alot!

    as mentioned masking tape wasn't giving Connor a clean edge after painting, Time to make the template.

    Forgot to grab some photos removing the template :(. Was very tense momnet. Connor and little sis slowly removed it and...































    Success!
    [​IMG]

    The camera angel gives the sense the lines are off, their not.

    Literally just a few areas to clean up and its all done!

    Next area he plans to work on is the side panel, recuts,sanding and continue the paint theme around the window.

    Till next time :)
