    And the next one....:clap:


    This time we modify a Xigmatek Elysium for the Gamescom Booth of Caseking (a big german distributor).
    Later after the Show, they want to take the System as a Part of their Shop Decoration.

    After a few hours of brainstorming we thought, that we will set on an eyecatching Airbrush (dark biomech/ giger inspired) over the complete Case, combined with a big custom Window (which perfectly fits into the airbrush).

    Naturally we will add a few lights, a custom top and a few other details.....(maybe watercooling)but more to that later....

    here comes the first bunch of pics and the first Video of the unboxing...and the window cutout process....

    the first drawings on the case...(just to help us)

    and the cutout process....

    Are you going to cut out the eyes of the skulls. You have sketched them on the tape after all...

    Promising start ;)

    How about a workbench. My back hurts just by watching the video. But then again I'm not a young man.....:sigh:

    Also my dremel gave up the other day, and I miss it....:dremel:

    thx m8´s!!


    No, to both :D
    We thought over that option, but than we came to the decision that we will not cut them out...we think it would look so nice in the dark when you can´t see the contours of the skull (just a few dots)


    :D hehehe, the room is full of them....but on our workbenches there are lots of cases at the moment...so we´re running a bit out of space from time to time....(specially with that case...it´s really big)

    time for a small update :clap:

    we started the airbrushing process, but before we could start, we first had to change the case color from black to white ...:D

    beside that we already started to modify the top of the case, we removed the outer mesh with the embossed X and also the plastic honeycomb mesh which is under it...so that we have only the frame left (for the moment)

    thx m8´s :clap:

    today it´s time for an update again :D

    In the last days we continued the work on the top part of the case...

    We already prepared the original top piece earlier, so that we could continue with a new center piece for it....after cutting it out we had to fit it into the frame from the original part so that we can attach it to the case like before... (without screws)

    Then we started the painting process of it, so that it will look like the rest of the case....

    and we also continued the airbrushing process on the second sidepanel.....

    I was wondering what you were doing with the panel without the window, but that is awesome. Are you going to be lighting the case internally? I wonder how it will enhance/change the effect of the faux-window and the rest of the airbrushing and I definitely look forward to finding out. Really excellent work . . . I have owned a Pasche airbrush for six years now and still have to take it out of the box and learn how to use it - how long have you been using the airbrush?

    thx a lot m8´s!!!

    yeah, for sure we are going to light the case internally. But i think it will took a few days until we reach that point :D
    Oh and i think we´re airbrushing for 5-6 years now :D


    Today the Hardware for this beast arrives :clap:
