Hi guys,

 

Here are most of the panels from the case rusted, clear coated and I also added some effects with some white paint smudges that I think turned out pretty nice and bringing the whole theme together for this build!

 

As you can see, compared to previous updates, it seems like the clear coat really darkened up the rust look however I think it looks even better this way and more in line with the Dead Space theme.

 

I'll be putting it all together very shortly but I wanted to give you guys a close up on all the parts!

Hi guys,

 

Here's the case all reassembled and looking as awesome as ever! I'm really happy with the result and it goes perfectly with the theme.

 

Still some effects to add over the rusted paint for a more Dead Space look and some things to build around the top and front panels.

 

Let me know what you guys think.

Hi guys,

 

Sorry for the lack of updates on this build. I've been quite sick over the last week and haven't had a chance to post more updates.

 

The race is now on to finish this build by the 12th of June. That's Sunday this week as that's when the Cooler Master CaseMod World Series ends.

 

Here is the work I've done for the top and front panel.

 

If you haven't guessed it by now the front panel will have Isaac Clarke's helmet from the original Dead Space game mounted to it. It should look pretty nice if done right!

 

Let's have a look at the progress!

 

First up the helmet pieces. Started of with a piece of 2mm black acrylic. Measured and drew out the shape by hand.

If you can't see it yet, you will be the end of this update.

Next up were pieces for the top panel to work around the tube. Just designed a random pattern from scratch that I thought would look good and everything was cut by hand with my Dremel Moto-Saw.

Helmet pieces all cut too

I went ahead and bent the acrylic pieces to shape and mounted with other straight pieces to form the overall helmet design.

 

The way I bent them was with a sheet of thin aluminium that was used to measure the shape of the front panel and then taped up to hold that particular shape. Once done, the acrylic pieces for the helmet were placed in the middle individually and heated up until they took the shape of the aluminium sheet. Unfortunately I was too into it at the time and forgot to take pics.

Let me know what you guys think! These will also be rusted which you will see once done.

 

Sorry if the quality of these images wasn't too good. They were all from my phone.

 

Cheers,

The light is only as an example from my phone, it will be better once on the build.

Also a quick rusty PSU mod. I didn't want to ruin the PSU so I used vinyl and rusted that. Then simply applied to the sides of the PSU and came out pretty well.

Hi guys,

 

Getting closer to finishing the build!

 

Received the cables from CableMod and also did a special paint job on the reservoirs which wasn't really hard to do!

Cable management! The reason they are like that so far is that there will be some different extensions for the 24pin and GPU cables which will hopefully arrive in time from Merco Mods. As the build needs to be ready by Sunday, not sure if they will be here in time unfortunately.

You can also see a sneak peak at the finished top panel here.

 

Let me know what you guys think! Not too long now, will have to rush through a few things for the build log in order to upload everything by Sunday.

 

Stay tuned for more.

 

Cheers,

 

Alex

Hi guys,

 

Here are the final pieces going in the build!

 

Awesome new Primochill SX Revolver fittings! I'm loving the new finish Primochill now offer on their fittings, these are the matte black ones and will go nicely with the build.
