    Yet another historic theme I always wanted to rip apart. :)

    Hi guys and welcome to what was originally called the INQUISITION 1231 AD Project.
    New name now:
    THE IRON MAIDEN
    This gives me more freedom to explore all of europes Iron Maiden darkness instead of just the spanish.

    The QUASAR was really an exception because it was commissioned on order. But now once again and I can proudly say as usual, this will be a fully handmade (no automated tools) build.
    Only hand guided tools and electric tools will be used.

    I am delving deeply into a very mysterious and this time horrible but still fascinating theme this time. Nope its got nothing to do with gaming or pop culture. This time I am bringing the Spanish Inquistion before the Modding Tribunal and am going to show them up for what they were. Evil.
    Of course the challenge as always is how to do exactly that with modern sterile state of the art hardware. Well.... I have a few ideas about how it sgoning to work out.

    It will be based upon the COSMOS C700M.

    I love organic themes from the past times, figures or events gone by. And once again this will be a learning process to make all the elements I find throughout the history I must research, of the Inquisition and adapt them to the case and the theme with new state of the art hardware.

    After Spartacus, Samurai, Pirates, Vikings and what not, I thought its time to find another historic theme full of legend, mystery, evil doing and myth all welded together in a very sinsiter segment of history, that is unfortunately based on truth. You would have thought we had learnt our lesson, but the world seems so unsafe nowadays and I cant help but think that we dont learn from our mistakes, We just go and make new ones.

    Its gonna be hard as usual, but I wouldnt do it if it was easy, so stay tuned. More to come as soon as I recieve the first batch of hardware.

    :) no mate, am just starting it now. you know how i work, you will see every step.
    this one is gonna be interesting, have alot of bad ass inqustiff that will find function here. it amazing how creative they were back in that day with mechanics to torture eachother. :)
    I hear the protests now and the voices crying out, how and why i picked such a topic.
    well its too easy to pick a game or some pop theme, i like those too, but i really like historical themes with twists..
    the case will change,,,,,,,,,a wee bit only :) of course

    and now its time to actually start some cuts and the base.
    the base upon which this case will stand will excel this case to anotehr 14cm. so all together this one will be about 86cm high and at least 70cm wide.

    i had to cut 7 bottles to get these four, witha little v cut for the wiring later. once cut through they are so instable, so nothing may rest on them. but i get a very ambery lighted effect when lit up with candles, hint hint. yes, these will be the 4 inquisitor prosecutor lamps you dont want to see when they come to collect you in the middle of the night.

    I can't see that pouring the contents of 7 bottles down the drain would make sense... my guess woulda been they were emptied/enjoyed a good while before they were required for this rig.
    What doesn't make sense is having to drink the contents of 7 bottles while repurposing them for the project/using anything bigger than a dremel...

    Just 'searched' for the liquid in question... maybe draining the contents might have been a wise move.

    I am wondering the same. I've seen a video of using a file to score a line and and a hot wire to cut the end off a cathode tube.

    yeah cheap, you nailed it, was witha dremel while spraying water on it first then though we used a water pump for a steady flow, and uit worked better.

    :) i enjoyed them.

    i tried a hotwire on the PIRACY AND PROPHECY project but wasnt very satisfied with the results. i got better non jagged edges with the dremel, of course under a steady pouring tap.

    Hi everyone. Once again I would like to thank Thermaltake for the past and the present projects.
    Here I am in my living room once again surrounded by all this yummy RGB and water cooling stuff from them.
    The Inquisition mod is going to be a killer I hope,,,,,or lets say I know :) exactly my style of theme. Very organic agaiin because its very hostorical.
    Historical makem me hysterical when it gets to transforming all this modern state of the art hardware into lets say 1231 AD style dark age craziness.
    But I simply love doing that, so watch out for more. DSCN1459.JPG DSCN1462.JPG DSCN1464.JPG DSCN1465.JPG DSCN1466.JPG DSCN1467.JPG DSCN1468.JPG DSCN1469.JPG DSCN1470.JPG DSCN1471.JPG
