Thank you very much.
Here are a couple of shots.
Here you can see how much light is comming through the gold leaf. I wanted to make it a little more translucent. Sorry its a little blurry
I thought black would be a good backdrop, so I sprayed it on the back of a test piece. From the front it just made the gold look dirty. So I tested it with gold spray paint. That seems to do the trick, so I painted the back side of all the leafed pieces. This is the first coat. I'll probably put down 2-3 more coats, not enough to become opaque, just enough to make the gold translucent.
Then, last night I spent fininishing cutting out all the holes for the back plate. The holes for the Fans, mobo, PSU, cards, power switch. Then I taped them off for a coat of black paint on the inside.
Here are some dry fit shots...
Fibonacci is COMPLETE
I finished it up today!!!
as jim carey in bruch allmighty said: "B-E-A-utiful!!!!!"
Great work Pfaffen. Its really looking good. Congrats on being featured. So whats next?
It looks much better with the foil like you did it than it would have if you had gone with what I originally thought would look good.
And once again, I really like the original idea. A very geeky idea with a simple, elegant result.
Very nice result on your mod Pfaffen!! Admiring your work, and the idea was cool, like the project
TG, Thank you very much. I'm surprised yours didn't make it.
I've been toying with the idea to make a waterfall (8-12in freefall). It would come from a reservoir overflow into a river and then free fall. I've got some preliminary sketchs, but nothing solid yet.
Thank you very much. I tried to keep it simple and still hold some subtleties. It was fun to build.
Thank you very much. Hope to have success on my next mod.
it looks very nice. but really is a lot of work to build a case.
But anyways it looks nice .
nicely done. better then one of them plastic lookin prefabbed who'seywhatsits peeps be using as a Home theater PC... doesnt look out of place at all in that setting.
tinking about making a Media center but i dunno what to make it out of... our living room has rental carper (disgusting orange carpet) i think its the original house carpet from when it was bult anyways enough of the dribble from my diareah filled gob... very nicely done wtg and congrats on finishing it!
looks great well done.
and grats on being featured.
It looks perfect there, fits right in. Congratulations on finishing it! I really like the way the gold leaf and the wood grain came out on it.
Congrats on finishing a GREAT mod!!
It's a superb mod. could you post some more pictures of it in it's final environment?
In case you were wondering...
More final pics to come...
now thats original! nicely put together project!! great work there, i especially like the gold accents!!
Here is a shot in its final location.
The Vista Performance Score was 5.3.
And yes, that is a big screen ... (63in) and at 1080i, on the 7600GT It looks great. The only issue was I had to change the font DPI to 150%. both the 96 and the 120 were not enough. There was a lot of eyestrain.
