    Hy

    i think some of you might have seen my announcement for this new project in the "Tikki Aquarium" Thread.
    For all others a short introduction.....

    A TV Show asked us if we would like to compete against another team of modders in a small 24 hour modding contest. I don´t need to say that we agreed.....:D
    Within the Contest each team got 24 hours time, a bundle of high end hardware, a working room and the goal to build germany´s most spectacular computer case. (After the building process the cases should be judged by the jury which also makes the official German Casemod Mastership...DCMM)

    As you can think 24 hours is not very much time....especially with a camera team in your back....(all the time: can you do this again......lets make another take of this.....can you move this to there.....:jawdrop: a lot of stress but also a lot of fun!).
    Therefore it was a wise decision that we made a short plan what we want to do with this case before the camera team arrives so that we only had to work it out while their filming....

    Our Plan contains that we want to integrate a fully funtionally RC Tank into our mod so that it can drive by itself on lan-party´s etc. Than we also want to give the complete case a rough look like it is a tank which directly comes back from the Warfront...but enough of talking here are the first pictures from the competition

    and the small Teaser video

    now after the contest is over we will complete everything that we couldn´t finish within the contest (and also make some minor changes) so that the mod will be ready for the GC in Leipzig to be showed

    Should have been an SFF cube, imo. Would've looked better proportioned.

    in the last couple of days we couldn´t do very much on this project because of another running custom build for a big software company which must be finished in the next weeks so that it can be showcased on the Games Convention in Leipzig this year....i will publish a worklog to this other projects in the next weeks....but up to now every other information is top secret :D

    for our peacemaker project i only build a custom Cover, which will be placed on the side of the Drive Bays so that it hides the complete quick mount thing which is used in this case....

    ok over the day we made all missing parts for the front
    now we only have to bring all edges in a straight line to each other and then we can start to fix them in their final position ...but that will be done tomorrow...

    beside the work on the front parts we also made another cover which will be placed 2cm above the ground of the case to cover some cables....it´s not ready up to now but here you´ll have a first impression

    today we wanted to finish all the small parts which will be placed on the front....but when we placed everything we thought that there was something missing in the lower part...

    [​IMG]


    so we decided to make 2 more parts which will be placed on the lower part....the first side is already done....but the second must wait until tomorrow.....

    :Dthanks a lot!!!
    :D

    today i made a short test to see if the LED Module work and to see how it would look like on the case...

    here is a pic of the testrun with only 1 module (3 leds) turned on

    [​IMG]

    then i built in the next cover, this time for the upper part to hide the PSU, it´s a little bit to big at the moment but i will correct that in the next steps....
