    Step 1 "last update".[​IMG]

    Last update regarding phase 1.

    Ready for phase 2 and very soon the first updates.

    The construction of the custom parts is practically complete.
    In these photos we will see some goodies and details that I hadn't put in the render, like the tapes of the bullets of the 2 machine guns.
    We will see the stages of realization with the hot bending of the projectile tapes and the attacks.

    As an anticipation I leave you with a beautiful gem,the bullets completely painted with airbrush and drastically transformed by how they are originally.

    In practice they were finished properly before painting, scraped off the smudges, given the primer, the base, a coat of matte black and then sanded with the 1000.

    Note the addition of the bullet detonation capsule (simulation), obtained with ergal gold washer and a chrome countersunk screw (in the next posts we will see the process of painting the projectiles).

    The result was above my expectations.

    Stay tuned.

    Step 2.[​IMG]

    The painting phases begin.

    As anticipated at the beginning of the work, the mod will be painted entirely with the airbrush and weathering (a technique to achieve effects such as rust on the screws, gunpowder effect, etc.).

    As you can see from the first photo of the F18 Hornet, the paint is inspired by the aeronautical camo of the American navy, and you can see the various weathering effects there.

    The technique used is "Marble" on a black background and with two shades of gray, Sky Gray and Dark Sea Gray.

    After having carried out the perfect preparation of the surfaces with all that goes with it, with this technique you must balance the final color with various passages and fill every single space created with the Marble by blending the two shades of gray being very careful not to make mistakes with excesses of color, etc., on pain of having to do all the work again.

    In the end 2 hands of super opaque transparent Alclad 2.

    In particular, it is worth noting the finishing of the handmade engravings that was performed with specific oil colors for professional modeling.

    The end result is exactly what I wanted.

    Later we will enter into the heart of the painting with other very interesting details.

    Stay tuned.

    I always enjoy your paint work. :D
    (I still want to see you do a polished clear plexi rig, though.)

    PSU cover and left and right side deflectors.

    In these photos we will see the definitive assembly of the cover for the psu with upper plate in polished plexy to display the illumination of the upper logo of the Thermaltake PF1 ARGB.

    Obviously the cover will be backlit in the upper front part and also where there is the main logo, the skull with the sickle.

    We will also see the 4 right and left deflectors finished with airbrushing, engravings and weathering.

    Stay tuned.

    Work is progressing and the conclusion is approaching.

    In these photos we will see the complete assembly of the ASRock X570 Steel Legend motherboard with the Ryzen 5 3400 G, the Thermaltake W4 Plus water block, the WaterRams, the NVME PCI-E Plextor M9PE RGB SSD and the tubing.
    We will also see custom sleeving with a few clicks of the editing procedure (the cables of the video card we will see in the next post).
    In particular, the Thermaltake Pacific TF1 liquid flow and temperature sensor.

    Stay tuned.
