So, here's the story; I'm competing in a three-stage modding competition here in the Netherlands. 47 Dutch and Belgian modders entered this competition hosted by BouwEenPc website. Stage one was the assignment to mod a DVD drive. I fiddled my DVD player into a mini-Wall-E and it got me third place, so I was through to the next round. This time, we were left with 10 players and we all got the assignment to mod a PSU. This time I modded it into.... A Command & Conquer GDI Powerplant. It turned out to be a winner, so first place in that round. Now I'm left with 5 other to the third and final round, assignment is to mod an entire case which they will provide to us. Now, I'm a huge fan on C&C, so I really love the case milotic858 made, and gave it my vote ofcourse. I've written to milotic858, and she didnt mind that I was making another C&C case, so on with it ! Anyway, I decided to make a Command & Conquer GDI Base Station, allthough I must say, it will not be on the same scale as my powerplant. Also, due to the competition rules, I will have to make this mod in less then 3 weeks from now! - EDITED - Just heard that the modding finals will be on Dec 12, so I can relax a bit more and add more details - EDITED - In short, I'll be making a GDI Construction Yard from a RECOM case. I began, as always, with research with my great friend Google. There is, to my knowledge no base station case made so far, but I could be mistaken. I made various screen shots of the base station in different angles. Then I started again with Sketchup, and I was really suprised to see that the building has much more tilted walls then I first presumed. It will be tricky! Because the case itself has not arrived yet, I already started with the back, the tail that tildes upwards. Using the same board as I did with Wall-E and some significant gambling, I've started cutting and glueing. In the rubble at home I found a few old Pentium CPUs 1 coolers. I cut them up for the fans. On top of the tailsection, two of these go in. Just glued them with hot-glued. First one done, now the second. And now with the section to it. Next section, the two struts holding the back up. I start with some wooden sticks. And two small pieces of cardboard, for the measure. With hot glue and "some" patience ... ... you get a kind of frame construction. Some more wooden sticks for the cross connection. And that's the first one. And some hours later, the second also ready. Some primer and finishing with silver metallic paint for the look. Doesnt look too bad. What do you think so far ?
