    I agree with Kim. Pop culture mods are generally short-lived. (and here I am with 90% of the stuff I do on the side being game release mods. :worried: )
    You nailed it on the decorations on the handrails.

    DSCN1796.JPG Yes as you both say, why should i just spring onto someone likings today or temporary trends. I make what I like. Certain comic, fiction and other popular themes are also interesting. I made for instance the Dark Knight Server, but in my own idea and never as a replica. I just like using elements of a theme.
    Even my IRON MAIDEN, will probably be the best looking gal under the classical IRON MAIDEN torture machine faces.
    Anyway, here are some more pics of the further progress.


    Today I did some more work on the base which holds the monitor. I stained and then sanded down the carved in planking and then airbrushed some medievel darkness into them.
    I also did some more work on the beer bottle inquisitor lamps which will be the four pillar corners and flicker like lamps later on.

    apart from that, I also started assembling some of the internal parts which are ready and the hard tubes.
    seeing as i can only post 10 pics at a time, more pics below.

    in english and german, one language on each side. paying tribute to the only EISERNE JUNGFRAU (IRON MAIDEN) I have evr seen live, in Nürnberg Germany.
    the cpu and ram doubloun and cover are mounted. Have also got some paint on the Inquisitor Lamps.
    Oh yeah and I painted to base feet as well as gave the planking its first glaze.

    and here are some more developements. i made the gpu shroud and also started the side name signs. this time i will be giving it the german as well as the english name, one plate on each side. i first saw an IRON MAIDEN for the very first time some years ago in Nürnberg in Germany and like the german name too.

    the name signs and the accompanying segments will all have leds behind the gemstones and will look like the cardinal belts of those evil men back in the day who sanctioned the use of this evil device against all they saw as heretics.

    more to come..

    thx guys, and
    Yes worbla should be sponsoring me :)

    Hi Guys, here are some more developments of the IRON MAIDEN.
    I finally almost finsished the base pillars made of beer bottles. The anme plates are on, this time at the left open to HW side in english and the german name
    DIE EISERNE JUNGFRAU, is on the bachplate side.

    Thr GPU Shroud is also monuted now. The monitor lift electromech is working fine and now I can finish the front between the monitor and the combo res.
    also I will finish the water loops to get the first liquid in. leds and tzhe top still must be finished. but at the moment all my concentration is on the front and top now. Then She will be lit up and fired up fior the first time.

    hi guys, and thanks to BT for the update nomination. Still a bit to go here.
    I started the shrine altar front part which will probably hold a real candle. :)
    i decorated the face a bit and even gave her a single tear drop, that will all look great once i have paint on it. is just primed so far.

    I suspect you will keep going with decorations until the contest is long over. :D The front is shaping up nicely.
    also:
    It may be just because it's morning, but that looks like a lovely slice of cinnamon toast.

    @Cheapskate ,,,,unfortunately it did taste like it though :)
    so here its painted a bit, just need the clear glase coating tomorrow morning.

    aint she beautiful, and she sheds a tear of mercy for every victim she devours :)
    first silvered it off and then highlighted in gold. afetr that brown watered to get the imperfections of rust and oxidatives and weathering and aging a bit.
    not too much though.
