    Hi guys I'm enrolled in announcing this new project, this is a mod client, consists of a mod on space 1999 certainly many of you You don't even know what I'm talking about ...

    Spazio 1999 is a British science fiction television series Designed in 1973 by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and originally broadcast from 1975 to 1977. He narrates the members of a lunar colony, adrift into space following the removal of our satellite from Earth orbit. The first season of this series was the last collaboration between Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and the most expensive until then realized for British television. The second season was the result of the collaboration of Gerry Anderson with the American producer Fred Freiberger.

    this TV series was a great success, today its special effects make it laugh but it is the story itself that is fascinated, I pèersonally revised the 2 seasons several times finding it always interesting.

    For this mod will be retro mod not to confuse with a Sleeper Mod will have not recent hardware, in fact it won't be used for gaming as usual but as unpretentious workstation!



    to you the video introduced

    [bbvideo]

    As already mentioned this is an unpretentious mod as desired by the customer, parts of other PCs will be recycled, some made from scratch.

    Let's start with the homes, I recovered this homes I don't know anything was a assembled recovered from the municipal landfill, it was dismembered with all its parts some trash some ridiate Anters sold on eBay I preserved the case waiting for a project ... and the time has come ...

    long ago I dismantled a homes of Arctic., Yes yes in addition to making fantastic silent fans, also made houses !! Mancavanio too many parts to be recovered has an interesting dissipation system, namely 120 mm fans that from the bottom of the case sent air through components and came out of the top This case had a floor lamp that served to hold the house raised a couple of cm from the ground and to which the air was sucked.

    This should be fun. I barely remember Space1999. I didn't have control of the tv that late in the day, so I only got to see a little of it. One of the kids at school had the lander and was treated like a rock star. :lol:

    Well we leave ...
    The interventions will be on the case, it will be closed so it will not be necessary to work inside how it is generally done but since it is a retro CASEMOD there is I prepare the front panel that will be modified,
    I am not interested in readers I leave the framework and housings inside to use them as storage and to leave the compact structure of the case,
    removing them the case would weaken, let's talk about a modest sheet metal case not Too thick. Paste all the caps to the panel and level,
    later it will be stunned, this to have a smooth and homogeneous surface and apply other panels.

    Processing of side panels ... I take inspiration from one of my favorite houses the R-4 Bulldozer of the GMC very old houses that I love unprotive today I think I believe that the Korean company has failed ..

    here are the mounted panels, the right and left panels will be different, on the left there are fans on the right no ... so it would not make sense to reply ... also because it would be too monotonous I believe that for the second (right) lighthouse of LED panels with logos and writings on the subject, but I still have to study well cone to make them, meanwhile the covers are ok ..

    Preparation of the front panel, this part will also be themed and use a recycled component, a fault hard disk ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Hole on the front panel of the case stopping the disc with LEDs interior

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I prepare the surface of the hard drive that is not regular but has supports and protrusions that do not allow easy fixing SMONTO The internal components so as not to scratch it, it must be the most shining possible.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next step Creation of support and coverage
