Hope Lantern


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

My name is Carl Collard and I am an electronic and optronic technician in the Canadian army. I am also father of four young boys (2 to 8 years old). 

 

I really love to create unique and out of the box mods. My modder artist name is: Mods Art PC. This is my first time in this contest, I hope you will like this one.

 

I dont have any sponsor for this project.

 

For this mod, I chose the lantern theme because this is a nice looking object where lightning is the purpose. I lot of nice things  can be done with light like refraction, reflexion and diffraction. The way it act when it pass from a material to another is facinating. And the visible spectrum of light let us see our beatifull word.

 

Here's the drawing I made for the project:

This EK dual pumps is the perfect fit to go in the center of those rads:

I really like these new EK low profile 90° fittings:

This Keurig coffee filter is a good choice to make an hight flow filter:

Say by to this rust!

 

The parts that will be used for the case are from the Harrison radiator heater (the model H one) and the Atlas heater.

 

Before and after sandblasting this Harrison:

And then the Atlas:

Parts ready for mods and paint:

Looks promising:

Painting time !

 

For the paint, I found a special color switch purple-blue for the case itself, except for the top grid and nametag plate, who are purple-green.

Build up Hope: PSU

 

Now the fun begins! Lets see if everything fits together...

The bottom pars is where the power supply is. This is also Hope's air intake, so, it needs a mesh to filter the dust and give that nice look. For that, I used a 10" pasta mesh from the dollars store and I cuted + glued it with epoxy at the bottom.

This Seasonic 750w Platinum PSU had to be modified in mani ways to be safe, size fit and functional here:

This large 230mm BitFenix Spectre pro is so fit that there is less than a millimeter free around it. It looks like this fan was made exacly for this purpose.
