    Hi @ all,

    this project is in its last steps before completing. We´re building it in a small team of 5 casemodders. We build this mod for a contest which is hold by caseking and pc games hardware extreme (a big Hardware Mag here in Germany). We´re competing against 6 other Teams of Casemodders and all started with the same Case (NZXT Beta) a few weeks ago.
    Here is a link to the original german worklog in the PCGHX Forum, there you can also find the worklogs of the other Teams....


    As part of the Teamwork we first had to decide in which direction the Casemod will go....after a few discussions we come to the point that we´re going to make something industrial (a bit steampunk inspired). So a few hours later the first sketches were done and we could start to build it.

    Because we´re doing the most of the stuff as a Team we´re a bit limited in the time factor because the deadline when the completed case has to be in the office of the Mag is on tuesday. And in the last weeks we had holiday time here in Germany (i think like in nearly every country) so it was a bit tricky to coordinate a few dates were all of the team could join a modding session. But finally we got a few sessions and here is what we got so far:

    Aw... I do love the steampunk industrial feel you have going. And that paint, very very nice. Are we going to see a lot more Brass, or are you just going with the clockwork motif?

    I am actually surprised that those gears moved, when I first saw them, I looked at the mounting and went 'Wait... those aren't glued down...'

    Cool stuff, will watch for more.

    Nice steampunk theme you have going on. I like what you have done with the moving gears too.

    thx a lot m8´s! :thumb:
    hm, no brass or copper this time :D because of the lack of time we will not make any brass or copper parts ...maybe on an other mod :D

    today we made a bit of progress....now we only have to complete the front and then the hardware, lights and moving parts can be mounted inside the case....but here are some new pics:

    Hmm... She is beautiful, bar the green shoes... They look oddly out of place.
