Hello everyone and welcome to my build log. Firstly I would love to start by introducing myself. My Name is Corey Gregory and I go by the modding name 'Imfaceroll Gaming'.

 

I am 22 years old from Australia. By day I work in the engineering fields of Surveying. My main hobby's are obviously PC Modding as well as Sports and Gaming.

 

I like to think of myself as being an average Joe trying to achieve his goals. My PC Modding life started 18 months ago with my first pc being a desk pc. Since then I have gone on to build a number of builds for displays at events like PAX. My PC building grew into a passion and having no access to 3D printers, Lathe and CNC machines has really helped me develop skills which have all been self taught with basic hand tools.

 

'If you do not give it ago you will not achieve' I live by this philosophy, something may look difficult to do but I encourage people to have ago and strive to achieve.

 

As you can see from the banner I am heading towards the SI-FI side of things and in particular Star Wars. I didn't want to revile too much to begin with so I feel a teaser banner is certainly fitting for this PC. Please feel free to have a guess =)

 

It is a privilege to work along side these top modders and I thank Thermaltake and all Partners for making this event possible.

 

I will be video logging Progress here: www.youtube.com/imfacerollpcgaming

and posting photos on Facebook as well as this thread www.facebook.com/imfacerollgaming

 

Specs:

 

Asus ROG Maximus VIII Forumla Motherboard

Intel Core i5 6600K

We just received our first shipment from thermaltake, the two Core P5 Cases that we will be working with.

I got a great opportunity today to look at these cases a little closer and I am very happy with the design.

The case is a very simple sturdy design that I am very excited to work with.

 

I Plan on using the two Core P5's in a Star Wars themed build and in particular a TIE Fighter Advanced (Hence the name TIE P5 Advanced).

 

Core P5 Highlights Video: 

 

 

Here are a few starter images for everyone to check out.

Hello my good friends! today we start showing our build and our vision of building a Star Wars TIE Fighter Advanced. I will be using all major features of the core p5 case within this build however each feature may not function as it is intended for ;). Lets get into our first progress.

 

Its funny but the idea of building a TIE Fighter didn't hit me until my wonderful fiancé wanted to go buy some plants. Hanging there right in front of us was this cool looking plant pot

 

qxtOa51.jpg

 

But what got me was when you remove the material you are left with a quarter of a ball, and it is steel (easy to weld off and a strong base frame for what we need). 

 

vRx8xGw.jpg

 

W9Ijrb0.jpg

 

So of course instead of her getting plant pots i ended up getting some instead. however I did offer here the material inside.

 

ylfkZ6V.jpg

 

I needed the inside of the ball to be hollow obviously so i can fit components inside so it was time for some dremel work to remove a few steel rods 

 

TmSfNST.jpg

 

then I had to clean up the cuts with a file

 

dH4ZzUO.jpg

 

and then lastly smoothen it all out with the grinding stone

 

tsnO7f6.jpg

 

so we are left with 4 quarters looking like this

I hope you are enjoying progress so far, more updates shortly.

Welcome back guys, today we managed to get some more progress done. Now that we have the 4 plant pot quarters all cleaned up I needed to create a rough base on it using some aluminium to it gives me a surface to work off of when I do some fibre glassing and bog filling.

 

5SXVHRi.jpg

 

As a temporary way to attach the aluminium to the ball I just drilled a few holes around the frame and into the metal sheet so I could wrap it around. 

 

vzZbGur.jpg

 

A few nuts and bolts to temporarily keep it in place makes it a lot easier for me to work with.

 

 UJ5B53e.jpg

 

next step I just used the dremel to take off the excess metal for the next quarter

 

J2tgqlp.jpg

 

and here is a few of the sections joined together. As you can see to bend the aluminium I had to cut slots in the metal. These were only rough and don't need to be neat because of the next step we will be doing.

I hope you guys are enjoying the progress, more updates shortly.
