    thanks GLA-58

    still a long way to go to make it worthy of the man we know as SPARTACUS, anyway.
    hi guys, and here is the leather shroud already on, needs some polishing up and oldening still, also some deco elements,,,, more to come.

    hi guys, here is another little update to the arena shade and i also cut out the front bay where the eye catcher helmet will be.

    the shade posts have all been measured and cut to size. they all have supporting wires which you will see what for this evening. i want sagging shade textiles as the look here. the shade poles are all dismountable for transport and slid in vertically at 90°.

    i also made the first pullyes by contrapting a mini lathe by clamping in my drill. :)

    the helmets bay is cut out and the placed on the Ludus balcony in the front which will also be worked on today.

    more to come.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Wow the attention to detail! It's like "here's some cardboard aaaand suddenly it's a fully fleshed Olympian chest". You must make other models for DnD, Warhammer or something?
    That is some intricate work, but where's the PC though?

    hey bindibadgi, dont worry it will be a full fledge fully working water cooled pc. :)
    I want this build to be a mixture of new and nostalgic. just like the PIRACY AND PROPHECY i made.

    you can see it here..https://www.caseking.de/en/caseking...rophecy-the-pinnacle-of-casemodding-2992.html


    https://www.caseking.de/en/caseking...ordinaire-ali-abbas-now-at-caseking-2986.html



    And seeing as its a competition mod, I am making it all by hand,
    no automative machines or techniques like CAD, 3d printers,
    lasercutters etc.. will be used, ALL 100% HANDICRAFTED.

    I am not biased to using automation, but only use it for commissioned stuff and orders. I actually do this now professionally but love to show we can make the wildest stuff by hand.
    And yes I make almost an theme under the sun, here are some examples and they are all on Bit-tech too.


    I hope it motivates newcomers and young modders to get into this FUNCTIONAL ART FORM.

    the whole build is based upon the core p90 of Thermaltake. at the moment i am making the essential elements for the over all look of SPARTACUS AND THE GLADIATORS ARENA.
    of yourse they will all have sertain functions like for instance the GLADIUS i made (sword) is made of real iron so it will pull a magnet and close the circuit which will then only let you turn the PC on when the sword is in. the shackles will hold the cylindrical reservoir pump combos. the back arches are actually vents where the air can circulate in the end. the helmet will probably have a camera. the animal lift which i am now working on will hold a monitor which reveals and conceals itself. the armor will all protect it in the back, but with buckles to untie if off, as would be expected. :)
    the aim is make a PC which is worthy of the theme while still having everything it need but ina 72 BC style, if you know what I mean. :)

    hi guys, so i started covering the hang wires for the valerian, which is the arena shade system.
    with paint ans airbrush shading they will still change of course. but they are hanging as cloth would which looks good.. the flags will be folded and sagged a bit down after painting too.
    i also started rivetting the buckles onto mthe armor.

    Hi everyone and thanks to all that like my work.

    I will post a little update tonight.

    Unfortunately my wife has been very sick and in hospital so I could not get the mod finished for the deadline in 2 days on the 22nd.

    I will however continue to post seeing as this case mod will be finished as it deserves, with all the details and functional electro mechanical parts i have planned. So stay tuned and even though its a pity I will not finish it by the 22nd, I promise to keep you entertained with the world of Spartacus. I dont want to hurry rush and blunder, but to get every detail on it as I planned.

    I will of course be taking part in the German Casemod Championship in August too with this mod.

    managed to get some stain on the valerium shades

    apart from that i also started the wooden strip covering in the front. i found dosme sheap snake leather belts which i am changing to match the theme.

    am sure they will contrast well when the wood has its proper color. :)
