  1. Remember Revan ? He’s back !! I worked with a local artist who let me use their work station and taught me how to cast an epoxy resin mold surrounding Darth Revan ! I really like how it’s turned out , all that’s left is to tap some holes in the top and mount it.
  2. So badass !! From the UV Print to the 3D printed face in the front , this build has such a cool vibe awesome
  3. Looking epic man !! Now this is definitely a TekRed Mod !! Helll yah
  4. Okay, let’s put it all together now I think it looks pretty cool!! Some small details I didn’t mention yet, I 3D printed some small translucent lightning bolt effects to attach to the lightsabers, and airbrushed on a bit of colour to add a bit of a glowing effect to the bolts. Ive also attached a single UV LED to the bottom of each reservoir to charge the UV reactive coolant. Let’s hope these lightsabers glow and have the look I’m imagining!!
  5. Well !! Let’s get some work done on the work log shall we Shown below are the 3D printed lightsaber handles Ive made and painted to model after Darth Revan’s lightsabers. These were printed, primed and painted by hand, using mission model paints. I’ll add a couple picture of painting them, it was a very relaxed day spent on them, my favourite. Okay, the lightsabers are ready !! Now, how do we mount them...Ah, time for modding up a bracket to support the dual lightsaber pump/res combos. For this I measured and cut a piece of stock
  6. Ahh badass dude! I can envision what you're talking about and I think that will look pretty slick man, great idea. Can't wait to see it in action.
  7. With the mask complete and painting complete for the main chassis, my attention has been on the lightsaber reservoirs. There will be 2 of them as Revan used 2 lightsabers! One red and one purple, which will feature some epic Mod Water made by ModMyMods! Here is a photo of the lightsaber handles that were made, theyre cleaned up and primed all I've got left to do on these is drill the appropriate holes I'll need for tubing/fittings and to paint them. I plan to paint these with a basecoat by airbrush, then the rest by hand. In addition to the handles and colo
  8. With the main chassis painted a rose gold, and the shroud over the bottom 2x200mm case fans painted a chestnut brown, I was able to start to test fit components back into the case. The system will have a dual loop, with one 240mm radiator on top and one on the front, as you can see. The radiators, fans and CPU block used are all Alphacool for this project! I definitely think the Aurora RGB CPU block looks pretty great on the Asus Maximus board used, and the chrome alongside the RGB will really look great once I get it fired up and the lighting tuned in the way I have planned.
  9. Yes !! Can't wait to see more of this mod man glad you have signed up!
  10. As I love doing themed builds, its a pretty common thing to put a figure in you're build of the character you're doing the theme after, like a pops for example. This build, however, is obviously something a bit too important to simply place a pops inside and call it a themed build! I will be using a figure of Darth Revan, but I'm going to try something new to me for this project.. wish him luck Ill post his fate a little later on in the worklog. I also wanted to post the first picture of the 2nd very key point of the build. To achieve the Da
  11. Man this is such a unique and Black Magic-esque way to show your thanks to those sponsors. Deadly dude. 10/10
  12. Welcome back HAF 932! I'm excited to see what you do here for sure Can you share a bit of the components you'll be fitting into this classic case?
  13. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- One of my favorite aspects of doing a * Themed Build * is the different colors you get to work with, and how you can use different reference pieces of the same subject to draw out different ideas. Now Darth Revan is seen in most pictures as having a black cloak, a mask of steel and red, a golden ring on his belt, and the two epic lightsabers in red and purple. What I found while researching however was a photo ill post below, that shows an interesti
  14. Awesome progress and shots so far in your worklog! This build is looking ROGtastic !
  15. What you're creating is scaring everyone away ! JK Looking awesome man! you've definitely got you're CNC honed in and working well for you on this project.
  16. How cool is this competition to be doing builds alongside such teams as Designs by IFR Very cool that you guys have joined and to be entering with an ITX chassis ! Can't wait to see more
