  2. hi guys and thanks to all. sorry for not posting in the last few days. I have been working my back off getting case finished. here are some last progress pics. the final pics will follow tonight after i have cleaned up and the coolant rum is filled. @ forks.dad sorry maybe you miss understood. my intention is not to lessen the automation work, but to stress that i dont use it. i i didnt say anything against others using it, but mentioned that i dont. offense is taken maybe, but i have given none. in an ocean of automation i dont think its offensive when i mention that i dont use it. as f
  3. thanks mumbie, not long now till its hopefully finished. wow, thanks jos214demi. am really happy you like it. dont worry about not being able to vote on the predictions, the voting for the winners etc.. start after the 25th too. thanks for you rmotivating words, am glad you also see it as art. i do too and am absolutely all in for handicrafting my cases 100%.

  5. and here is another little update, seeing as i am wiring the parts while fixing them, it looks as if nothing is really happening in the pics, but it still took all day. this is the reservoir array which is fixed in one piece behind the bottles. i am oonly using berstein golden leds in this one to match the rum coolant. after painting the letters silver, i dabbed the brown and black in to give it a little older look.
  6. thanks jos, i am really glad you like it and yes you are right, the corep5 is really worth its salt, very stable and rugged even though it looks fragile. i mean hey, the pirates are keel hauling it and its surviving, right. i am now walking the plank and sticking everything together, then they will all be wed together. so another update will be on its way tonight, here is the first. have taken the day and weekend off to finish as much as possible. so first the main chassis holder has made it upstairs for the final glaze, its sunny today thanks ####. i cut a new bottle with the drem
  7. @ kurt, thanks buddy, wish you good luck with yours too. so here is a little update, well actually 5 coats of sanding, staining, paining glazing etc.. just less pics. this skull was meant for an aquarium, now i need to make it look a bit grimmer and meaner. here are some before and after pics. i used furniture smart remait wax and sawa dust to better the eyes. <a href="http://s1307.photobucket.com/user/abbas-it/media/Piracy%20and%20Prophecy/19%201rst%20glaze%20and%20skull%20glazed/PICT5934_zpsy0a22ust.jpg.html"target="_blank"><img src="http://i1307.photobucket.com/al
  8. thanks guys, i surely hope so, am modding 24 7 now to get it finished in time...
  9. Hi Jos214demi, and thank for your kind words. I appreciate them. yes budjetting hobbies, especially casemodding is always a certain burden, I know that only too well. I am happy if my casmods can inspire people to realise that one can also build great themes in low budjets too. Heaven and he...... sounds good. Exactly my type of theme too. Thanks in advance for your readiness, but do look at all the cases and then cast your vote. here are some more pics, its still just the primer stains brown, red and then black though, will still change a lot. tomorrow some of this color will be sanded off
  10. thanks mate, glad you like it. thanks to you too. lets hope the detailed color scheme i have in mind also pays off. yes guys, now color will slowly lightne things up. dont have much time now to get this finished so its nonstop modding for me now. here is the first stain in brown, which will more or les be sanded off now. i also made a ssd quick dock station in pirate ship deck plank style to match the theme. i will be in the workshop in an hour till open end and try to get as much priming, sanding and repainting donas as possible today. dont worry, this is no
  11. thanks cris thanks you ashleybog well, we will see, but thanks that you think so. thanks flamemaster666 , thats waht i like hearing themost, i also see my handwrok as art, thankyou barakyp029 for recognising it as such. i agree with you jos214demi, i love diving into a theme and living it till completion. then the theme will live too. thanks mate thanks rochrimir, i am glad it appeals. am now down in the workshop, the next update is on its way.. i hope with any luck to finish the actual build today, and maybe get some stain on it..
  12. thanks mate. yes indeed, i love details, and more over i love making every little detail myself. lasered, cnc and 3d printed stuff, whether made myself or ordered from a 3rd party is a nogo for me, its a pity that their is so much of that going on. it doesnt show what one is really capable of, but what one can make a machine do in automation, or let and have a machine do. anyway that seems to be the way things are going and the trend now. while loving and gaping at the result of such automation parts because of their precicion, i cannot say that i could ever value, cherish or admire them or
  13. thanks guys, am really trying my best to stay tuned to the theme piracy and prophecy. with any luck i shoul be finished with the interior and all other trifles by sunday evening or monday latest. monday is a national holiday here so that helps too. that means i should be able to srt getting some color into the equation then. at the moment, i am living the theme, but then, the theme will live
  14. so hi guys, forst thanks to you all for your very motivating comments. here is the result of todays modding session. i carroed on with the interior and i think it should be finished by sunday evening. its a lot of little thingamadjigs and whatchamacallits in pirate style till its done. anyway here are the pics. first i made the mid section between the fans and psu. it will hold 6 petg push compressions and will be screwed permannent with the case, it also covers the psu wires too. yes, even the grafik cards will have certain deck planking too. wires dont really fi
  15. Thanks everyone. Especially to theckingjay. Thanks for your motivative appreciation. I have been watching my fellow modders here and am really subbed by the quality they are all producing. I would like to mention that its pretty intimidating to see the exactness and precision of all that cnc stuff out there, but that it motivates me even more and more to show that 100 % hand crafted can still hold up with them. I would also use cnc's for orders but when it comes to showing my art, then handmade is the name of the game for me, not because its easy, but precisely because its harder and comes st
  16. aye aye sir, rum is on the way. as soon as the back is painted and i have finished the interior. am also curious how the bernstein colored golden self made coolant looks like. wont use real rum, i need that to cool my own biological system. thansk, i simply love details too.
  17. hi guys, thanks for your remarks. yes indeed the bottles are indeed reservoirs for the coolant. i have mixed some coolant that resembles the RUM color that used to brewed back then in the day. yo ho ho and a bottle of RUM, right at least hollywood tries to tell us that RUM is all any pirate of the carribbean ever used to drink, treasure island too, so its a must. the bottles will still be decorated like proper rum bottles with stickers ans logos etc.. yet to come. next update is tonight...
  18. oops i forgot this little update before the breakdown, here it is. i made some pulleys and winches for the front tackle holders which you will later see wehn its front is mounted. i also made a little badge type of sign for the back with skull n crossbones. apart from that i also made a banister set for the top skull so that it has soome protection, a bit like a ships banister rail seeing as iwas about to start the interior i dismantled the garfikcard fan system and mounted the water blocks.
  19. thanks nkwoel i appreciate your remarks and like the term tecnoartist. thanks nostalgia thanks you, i am glad it appelas thansk slugbig55, i hope they really look as i wante them too when the rum is in them thanks buschyx, yes i certainly love details, always delve into them and try to stay true to the theme. color will liven this one up soon.
  20. hi guys, i am really looking forward to getting some color on this soon. am pretty much finished with the exterior and will now start integrating hardware, finding its places etc.. making some parts for the interior. then its breakdown time. anyway. i made a little hanging sign like from old weathered wood for the monitor front. apart from that i started the last fittings, here in wood, later iron of course. i made the drawer which will contain the keyboard in the base with a iron ball snap in fitting and handle to keep it in
  21. hi guys, and here is a little update again i found this little led ringlet with a few effects too at the local car parts store. seeing as its battery driven and u can hence put it behind the front shield of arms in the plexi windows with out having to run a wire to it, i decided thats gonna be integrated there. i cut the pattern in the middle of the windows, it will be hidden behind the shield but will difuse the light through the polished sides in every direction. the protective sticky paper is still on, when its off it will be even better. these wooden strips will later
  22. hi guys, here is yesterdays progress with two little quickie vdeos too. i had some space issues with the swivel in monitor and was tight for space but managed ti integrate it in the end after changing the design and reducing the monitor frame as much as possible. now its mounted and works, not powered yet. the radiators have found the right place too. i found this 12v motor in ebay, dont really know what it was originally for, but it was cheap and is well transmitted and works at the required speed with 5v too. started making the moniotor housing, the 7" monitor is a touch screen an
