    Good to see you all again!

    skipping ahead on this project since last update

    Once everything is assembled, all of the details like weathering, graphics, and effects can be airbrushed on the exterior like the concept drawing.

    Left side panel, the hole will have burned effect airbrushed on later

    Cooler Master sent over 3x 230mm red led fans, 1x for front intake, 2x top exhaust

    The 840 normally comes with Black frame 230mm fans, no leds.

    Thanks! It's been fun. I've had this .5" x 25" flexible conduit lying around, I've always wanted to use it for routing cables. It fits the industrial theme. I've also got .25" i.d. flexible conduit.

    Here is the Prawn canister from the movie.
    [​IMG]

    My canister will be lit with a 4" UV cold cathode, mounted on the inside wall of the back cover.

    Once it's painted and the window is darkened a bit, it should look eerie.

    for canister window, I'm going to bend a piece of clear 1/8" thick case acrylic with a heat gun, but more on that later!

    I made the canister's window today. Using a heat gun to bend the Lexan.

    Forming the arc in window by pressing heated piece on the Aluminum rod. It's HOT!

    should've watercooled it and used the canister you made as the resevoir and used black coolant. Because in the moviet he canister has black liquid in it and it would've looked cool to have it as a resevoir with the black coolant

    I suggested it already to Cooler Master, They didn't want a water cooled PC :confused: btw: The canister isn't finished, it will look like the original once I'm done

    I chose the 1/4" socket head screws, these are fastened into the side panels
