    Here is progress 1 to our warcraft PC. Today we will be creating a PSU cover/reservoir. The idea here is to make the dark portal from World of warcraft and make a reservoir out of it. At the bottom of the stairs i also want to create a cracked ground which the green liquid will represent fel magic!



    I started with some 15mm thick acrylic and used a jig saw to cut it to siz, then filed and sanded it smooth to remove the jigsaw cut marks.

    Now i needed a top plate so that i could seal the reservoir tight!

    Time to route out some material to create the water channel

    and here is the look i am going for, the ground will have cracks like in the images below and the portal will be standing upright

    Progress 2 today. Today I create the portal columns and i Tap some holes in the reservoirs for my fittings.



    As you can see here i have drilled some holes and tapped the threading in for my fittings.

    I have created the columns for the portal which simply slide together to make installation very easy.

    Today is progress 3. Today we get into the details of the reservoir, starting to take some shape and we are happy with how things are turning out.



    I wanted to test out our reservoir to make sure there were no leaks

    Next step i cut out some vinyl for our warcraft sign and applied it, next we went over the sign with some body filler.

    Time to apply those cracks in the ground to our reservoir!

    Lets prime everything getting it ready for paint!

    Progress 4 today. Today we start painting our custom reservoir and the portal!



    I applied some body filler around the cracks to create some texture to the ground

    [​IMG]

    I created the stairs and primed them as well as the reservoir

    Nice work on the reservoir.
    Do you own your own CNC?
