  1. Thanks for posts and tip I had paused progress on this build so i could get this metro exodus https://youtu.be/Mz6ozE1X62s?t=55 finished in time for their launch.
  2. LanParty! cool, made note to come back to that link, I'll be Working to get Ep5 finished after Xmas
  3. Thank you everyone for being patient! Here's Ep4 of my Retro PC Build Series, thats the FIRST wave of photo submissions, I will have more in next Ep!
  4. looking on ebay at 3dfx cards, BIN listings, which doesn't mean they will sell, but none the less, wishing I kept my voodoo 5 card.
  5. Great photos, Thank you! I'll have first wave of submitted photos on Monday, I've created Retro Gaming PC Video Playlist *People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.
  6. Awesome, Thank you rob! I've got your photo added, also, if you need anything else from https://www.mnpctech.com, Ive got voucher code MNFAN turned until Jan 1st, 2019 (15%off)
  7. Hey guys, I've started a Retro PC build series on my YT, here's ep 1 I'm planning 2 -3 more videos and asking for photos of your Gaming PC builds from 1995 - 2005. (for photo montage at end of video) I will include at least one of your photos posted here and credit your screen name in the video. Photos can be taken today, but All hardware must be from 1995 - 2005 era, including the case.
  8. My apologies for the lack of updates. I've had to start another project build for a client. Paying gigs keep the lights on, so Max will need to temporarily park the Falcon. I may bring it out and share a new update for mental break if time allows. I will be starting a worklog for this new build once the NDA is lifted, I think it will be a real spectacle once it's finished.
  9. Thank you bishop! Painted the engine and injector air scoop silver alum
  10. Ok, details are the fun part! Scoop done, Everything on the engine needs to be painted Dark Silver Aluminum
  11. I'm ditching the scoop on the scale V8 and making the Scott Superslot fuel injector scoop from Max's V8. I started by makingthe top and bottom portions from acrylic, but getting the 45 angle degree bend from acrylic is "challenging" without the acrylic warping. I ditched that idea and made another bottom half from 20 gauge sheet metal. Which reminded me I really need a new bending brake. The two pieces are joined together with Scotchweld DP-190 epoxy. I need to make the base next, and maybe add the fuel lines.
  12. I still need to take some photos of the workshop, but this is for whoever asked if I keep the factory fans I remove from cases... This is just personal inventory at the workshop
  13. yesterday, I found time to make mounting bracket from 20 gauge steel for the 80mm radiator
  14. I'm going to cut the top panel again and rotate the 80mm radiator 90 degrees, so the radiator is no longer protruding so high. I stumbled upon this hydraulic shock in my junk drawer and used it as support for the scale engine. I may replace it with something else if/when it feels right. btw, the supercharger in the movie could be turned on and off via an electrical switch, which isnt true in reality. They elevated the supercharger upon brackets over the engine with an electric motor, haha. The photo below illustrates the same electric supercharger setup as the movie.
  15. Thats a really awesome find Braegnok!! Black Ice 80mm Nemesis GTX allows options for different compression fittings, versus the pre-made ports. I've mounted the classic aluminum framed Evercool 80mm fan. I'll probably paint the fan dark grey.
