Happy New Year to all of you! :D

To hide the cables inside the neck section, I cut some wire frame into shape and attached it from the inside.
Moreover, the wire frame was covered with black rubber foam.
Now you cant see the cables inside and the black background will also intensify the light effect.

Now two sections are done. Only two more to go.
For convenient reasons, I temporarily detached the eye.
Looks good so far.

For the mid section, I started by painting the inside black.
At the moment it looks a bit rough but it will be sanded later on and painted again.

For some details I wanted to use cylinder head screws. Unfortunately, the ones with the right size are a bit too long.
So I drilled holes into a wooden board and put the screws in. The thikness of the board will be the new lenght of the screw.
Then I cut the screws down and attached them on the wooden parts of the mid section. Those parts are also already primed with some dispersion paint and sanded.

Yes, the PSU will power everything. The arduino will be connected with USB to the mainboard. The LEDs have resistors in front and will be connected to the 5V of the PSU. For the servos I will use an converter to get 7,4V from the 12V of the PSU.

 

 

And up we go. Not much time left, so I need to a bit faster now haha.

I painted the doors for the mid section in a bronze tone. The paint was dabbed on
with a brush to achieve a rough looking surface. The details then were painted gold with an airbrush.

Then I 3D printed a cover for the opening were the weapon and instruments are attached.

In addition, the mounting mechanism for the door was reworked. Now I can easily take the door out and it
is much stronger that way.

So part 3 of 4 is done. The last details will be added at the end.

Now I am currently working at the big doors. I started by attaching the rings that I printed some time ago.
Therefore, I drew a center line and marked the position of the rings. Then the rings were attahed. Because I
don´t trust the glue, every singel ring was secured with four screws from the back.

Next up, painting the doors and start installing the hardware.

Thanks for answering man. Im just so used to having cheap power supply that im not actually used to the concept of arduino integration in a build. Hahaha, few more days to the finish, goodluck :)

Due to some space issues, I postponed the painting of the doors.

INstead I also reworked the opening mechanism for the doors.

27972890ic.jpg

Than this little fellow needed some color on him.

27972891el.jpg

Next up, I cut the neccesary part of the case into shape. In addition, I made a new backplate that will give stability
to the graphics cards.

27972894zc.jpg

27972895za.jpg

27972896we.jpg

The inside of the Dalek was covered with bronze foile.

27972897fb.jpg,

Before installing the water tanks, I made some clamps that will tidely hold them.

27972898mr.jpg

27972899wn.jpg

Then the water tanks were installed. I also put the PSU in place and attached it to the bottom plate.

27972900nv.jpg

27972901ce.jpg

The hardware will be located on a little construction over the PSU. It is entirely made from wood.
It will be covered with wooden boards that are covered with foile as well.
Doing this, I already started to incorporate the water cooling and cable management parts.

So here is the last update before the final pictures.

First of all I want to thank Gosumodz for providing some nice sleeves and cable management stuff
for this build.

27997999dk.jpg

I installed the hardware at this moment. Therefore, I screwed the motherboard tray in place.

27998000iw.jpg

Before putting the mobo in, I installed the needed fittings for the watercooling.

27998001cs.jpg

Then the water cooling loop was build. Most parts are build from acrylic pipes. Only on the backside and
the middel section, I used flexible tubing.

27998004lo.jpg

27998007rf.jpg

Next, the details for the main doors were painted gold.

27998008vt.jpg

At the moment, I am finishing the cable management and will do some final touch ups.
The final pictures will be uploaded on Monday then.

Now its time for the first bunch of the final pictures.

But first of all I want to thank all the sponsors, that make such awesome events happen.
Huge thanks to Thermaltake for having me participate in this contest.

In addition to the pictures, I will also make a short making of video and show all the functions on
the mod.

So here we go with the pictures.

One word..EPIC..The use of different materials and the skill level of craftsmanship make this one of my all time favorites. I only wish his one eye would be movable as well. A true mod in every sense of the word. Congratulations on an EPIC build.
