    Very nice work log. The way youve done it is way too colourful and overcrowded for me though.

    Whats that drink i keep seeing ?

    I will paint the exterior case yet and the colours will fit with all the rest of the case.

    The drink is green tea and sometimes just coffee. :p

    Thanks for your observation !

    Yeah ! That´s a lot of colours really, but, in the end it will fit each other. I´ll use a paintbrush to paint the exterior case as allien metal and all the colours will makes sense.

    Glad you like the work !

    that bubble window looks really good, and goes well with the theme. were you able to go sow enough that there are no bubbles in it? if there are, it would still look really good if they are fairly uniform. also, that can ooks really cool, but the colors dont seem to match up to the case. im guessing this wil be fixed?

    The window become very smooth really, with no bubbles. This ET face is the number 6 i did, so, i´ve got some experience doing this. :D

    I´m working on colors at this point, the interior will be blue (the blues will come from lights and sleeves and conectores, all they) and yellow (from UV paint i did) and the exterior will be like black shadows, simulating an allien metal if you wish, which matches with the black front panel.

    Also, the Cooldrive5 changes colors, in fact, they can turn into 7 diferents colors and makes easy to fit with other components, like the musketeer 3 (yellow ligh) and the green from Vantec Nexus (maybe i remove it to put the sound blaster platinum front panel) I´m ´till deciding it.

    What are your suggestion about it?

    I´ll fix it now in may to subscribe this work on Maui contest.

    Thanks !

    Yeah ! There is a lot of colours, like my country have. I´m to paint the exterior case of polished aluminium with shadows to simulate allien metal. Also, the Cooldrive 6 frorm Cooler Master changes the colour and the interior will be yellow (from paint) and blue (from sleeves and lights) so, will be only 3 colors at the end.

    I´m working hard to finish it to the maui contest in june, so, keep alert, because i´ll bring huge updates soon.

    Thanks for visiting and for the coments. Nice observations you did, very pertinent.

    Thanks !

    I appreciate your kindly coment, i´ll bring more updates soon...

    Thanks !

    I don't quite understand why people don't get why all the colors work. If I envision this mod on the set of a Sci-Fi flick, it's looks AWESOME!

    Keep it up!

    The colors will work together at the end. The actual exterior case paint don´t fit with the rest of the case, so, in this month, I´ll put the allien metal efect to work and the colors will be more attrative.

    I loved you work dacust, it´s time for updates on your erector project?

    Thank´s for visiting.

    Yeah ! The first post is huge really. The green color of the alien reservoir is Coolant liquid from Thermaltake with UV Cold Catodes. I´ll put two 4" UV CC replacing the UV leds to iluminate the little ET.

    Now I´m working on a side panel texturization, maybe tomorrow, if not today, I´ll be back with some pics.

    Thanks for comenting !
