Sure man, its all about the ideas Show us as many as you like, and just tell me which one you would like to enter for the competition.
Glad to be the sponser for this contest
A lot of great designs already. I love watching the engineering that goes into these sketches.
Dark~3nergy, I really like your bezel design. I can imagine those vetical bars as polished aluminum or translucent red acrylic
Confusis, I'm in love with the heatsink styled side panel
Ok so this is my first real go at using sketchup to mod (I HATE SKETCHUP AND ITS LACK OF MATE/ALIGN TOOLS!). I have a whole album of views because it's kinda hard to see everything, hence the name: Stealth. (Note: If that name has already been used I will think of another) The case is made without any rounded corners or objects on it and only flat surfaces and corners, to stick with the stealth theme. It's a all dark black plexi and plastic case and the metal is painted in differing shades of dark gray, the interior is left light metal color so it shows through the plexi better. Well gimme any opinions on it please ^^ its not as intricate as most of yours but its still up there (there are a LOT of triangles and the likes in there that are barely visible due to the black color). Enjoy the pics:

Unfortunately your album is password protected. Set it for public access if you want people to see it! --nexxo
Please note I did not put in any hardware except for the DVD drive because its about the case not the hardware right? Plus rather that the majority of it be my work.
Nice one dude
What would be absolutely awesome would be if you could incorporate some metal plates, riveted together, like you might see on the surface of some sort of Stealth aircraft... like you see on the metal in this image.
yea I may do that around the edges. I'll work on that a bit and see if I can make anything of it. though sketchup is a pain in the ass to do detail work like that I'll give it a go. post up a pic if I can get it to look right.
Edit: I'm working on it, it looks cool but does kinda defeat the whole "Stealth" theme, even though stealth aircraft do have rivets :/ I'll post up a draft soon and you guys can choose whichever is better looking.
all the designs on this thread are awesome, cant wait to see some more, but arghh! sketchup doesn't work work on my computer for some insane reason!
I've found the issue - I forgot to enable hardware accelleration.. d'oh!
ARG! had sketchup crash twice (getting used to the 'bugsplat' messages) already on this model
Welcome to the competition thread guys. Look 4ward to seeing your entries
change of colour. got sick of staring at orange!
I didn't mind the Orange, but Blue looks good too confusis!
Posted contest on my blog to draw more interest, CaseModBlog.Com
My red thingy,not brill but i thought i would have a go
I think I might enter.
Major props to the sponsors for supporting the cause
@Dark~3nergy - I am in love with that case, for real. Very, very, nice job!
@confusis - I totally agree with Bill, that side panel is sick!
Good luck to you all, I feel like I need to learn Sketchup now. My Sketchup skills are that of a monkey
Ok, confusis and skullen, your ideas for the heatsink style panel protrusions are really hitting me with inspiration!
Looking at the entrants so far I feel so insignificant
bigsharn, don't give up , you still have 2 month to make an über case.
mnpctech, thanks, I wanted the edges to be polished and the rest just sanded.
There's some nice design's being laid down on these pages
Also available in green
@Skullen - That would look neater if the tapers overlapped, like on the Air Force Academy chapel in Colorado Springs.
The color on the feet need to match too.
It'd also be neat if the top fins and front fins wrapped around the corners and met.
Cool I'm in
