    Yeah Cheapskate, clean and quiet, but cold too. :)

    Thanks MIGUI!

    I dumped the spider from the front:

    Better placement for it:

    Then i'm going to make an spiders web under the spider which is going to be lit up with red leds or uv-paint.

    Thank's for watching, now i think that the sideview will look good enough to be considered as finished.

    Good call. I felt the spider legs on the outside were a little dangerous.

    Thanks mate's!

    Yeah, it also was little too much dominating in front. Now there's something to see inside the case too. :)

    I'm going to use polycarbonate for the web under the spider, just a plate with engraved web, lit up with leds or as i said, lines painted with uv-red. That should look neat.

    Then, the case part should be done. (allthought mem's and gfx will be changed for better ones)

    Finishing the table, making external dvd- or blu-ray station and web-cam mod, then this mod will be done. I hope it won't take more than a year... or two. :D

    Thanks Raiden. Yeah, i decided to give this case for someone, asked some advice and teacher named Reijo Ahonen in city of Jämsä will decide the student who will get the case.

    I had to dump the idea of giving this case for that 8-year old girl, it happened that now i'm dating with his mother. :D So that wouldn't have been "charity" anymore, as i think. :)

    Did some testing with paint:

    [​IMG]

    Mixed ac-ryan uv-paint and loctite epoxy together:

    Gives nice 3-d dimensions for the painting:

    [​IMG]

    Did some stripes for the gfx too:

    [​IMG]

    Tomorrow i will paint the web under the spider. :thumb:

    Thanks for watching and commenting.

    The extra detail is what really sets this mod apart from the rest.

    Thanks mates!

    I will fix the painting today, i need more needles, mixed paint and epoxy ruins needles, luckily my fiancée is a nurse, so those ain't so hard to get. :)

    I will also add red for some other places too.

    It may kill it for this side, but my intention was to make different impressions depending which side you look the case. And now there's some "reason" to have a window, because now there's some reason to look inside it. El'chiepo parts wasn't very interesting to look at.
    And my intention in first place was to add some red and blue colour for the case, red net suits quite well, imho.

    Thanks for the comments guys! :)

    The net turned out great! Nicely makes the spider stand out, as well. This really is a five star project, good work!
