    This project is killer. I will follow closely.

    The lettering is awesome and really has the cold look thanks to the satin finish.

    You appear to have immense dremel skills!

    Tnx to all, guys!
    Want more?
    Here you have!
    Now it's time to work on the side panel of the Glacial...
    If the front panel and the top have thi snowflakes theme , for the side I've decided to do a little more complex work... The main theme for the sidepanel will be “WIND”...

    The main concept for the left panel :

    And here is the right panel theme. :

    In the preliminary draw I've choose to use like a “model” some pics of Cameron Diaz, but I've switched to Penelope Cruz...
    The hair recall the smooth curves of the left panel tribal, but you can feel the cold sensation even with a sight so...
    Well, let speak the pics for me :

    Here is a gift for all :

    Tnx a lot guys!
    I'm really happy that you appreciate this theme, lots of italian modders don't like it at all...
    The patience to do this little engraving/carving work is not difficult to find, simply I want this design and I've done it :)
    I've spent a lot of time doing this work, but your comments give me the fuel to go on, so, tnx a lot!

    Really, guys, you don't know how I'm happy to read this kind of comments...
    I was really bored to see a lot of italian modders that dislike my work on the Penelope face, now I'm really happy that someone like this work!
    Now I can go on, I'm playing with an idea to do the other panel, maybe I'll try some engraving...
    Stay tuned, and really tnx a lot!

    Really all that matters is that you like your finished product. Your making this for yourself, not anyone else. As long as you enjoy the construction and the finished product that's all that matters.

    Keep up the good work buddy. I can't wait to see what you end up doing on the other side panel.

    I'm not big on faces on cases either, but that scrollwork pattern is very nice.

    Tnx a lot, DoOb's , it's true, the time spent on this mod really paid me off!
    This was a horrible time for me...
    Too many hours spent at work, zero time for modding my case :-(
    I've done only the top, may I show you?
    In the top I was in need to use 3 120mm fans, so I've choosen to use the same cutting pattern, snowflakes everywhere!
