    So far I have completed the two side panels and planing to make the mold in the weekend
    Took a lot of time on geting the perfect shapes and sized, specially because the design has lot of curves


    Please let me know any suggestions and what you think about the case. do you like it?
    Thanks

    Welcome to Bit-Tech

    I have moved your thread to modding until there is clear evidence the build has started in line with the Project Logs rules. Once there is some I will move back to project logs :)

    Your pictures also don't seem to be working.

    Hello,

    I think this still falls under conceptual - as soon as there is pictures up, of the actual build going together then I will move it into project logs :)

    It's nothing personal and I am not trying to cause offense but it's the rules and it's how we keep the forum organised.

    It does look like it's going to be an awesome build though :)

    Agreed, that's a nice render. Is there a preceding Sandstorm you could link to at all?

    Oh , I got it, no worries. I have started from the side panels. Today I will be making the front and top. Again Since it's a scratch build I don't have any other parts for the build to be shown. It's ok you can move it later. Sandstorm is the name I gave to the case, but I think I will change the name. I will keep you guys updated about the build, and I'm planing to release my second video to Youtube today. and I have added little more lighting areas to the side panels to look bit more aggressive. Hope to finish the build as soon as possible. fiber molding m gonna do in the weekend. I'll let you guys know more with pictures :)

    cheers :)

    Updates : Fiber glassing

    Hi guys, after sanding all the foam and making the shapes, tried to fiber it covered with masking tape, but the test piece melted. So I will use cement to make the mold, sadly i won't be able to keep the mold, then fiber it to make the case.

    So the half finished case is like

    and I bought the color changing LED stripes to fit to acrylic
