    The project began with the purchase of an old broken radio Tank P-123M.
    In fact, it all started with the selection of the body. I wanted to have a non-standard housing in military style.
    The choice was stopped on the P-123M.

    After the purchase of a process of measuring, planning, disassembly.

    All mechanisms and components have been removed. One unit went very well on the size of the body for the DVD drive.

    It was prepared plate under the motherboard, hard drives, and a basket for the power supply.
    It cut a hole under the back plate and video connectors.

    The process of painting the body and blocks took a long time. I have used several versions of color solutions, before settling on the final monophonic decision.
    Coloring in camouflage color quality it is not passed. I washed all the paint stripper and re-painted in solid color used for painting tanks.

    It was carved by hand vents for the fan grille.
    All operations were performed manually using a drill and file.

    Laser cutting is not used. The budget was very limited.

    I'm not a fan of military themed stuff but this look promising!
    Judging by the boxes of Sassicaia you know good wine so you have to be a good modder...
    Waiting eagerly updates!!:dremel:

    Kudos on creating something really original. It's totally awesome. I'm glad you went with he solid green for the final colour and put all of decals and stuff back on the front.

    Very neat work with the metal cutting too. Rad man!.
