Project: Air Force

Recommended Posts

So I'm not gonna lie, today pretty much rocked as far as packages are concerned. Some disappointments also ensue, but we'll get to that later.

 

Deep breath now.

 

(queues Emeril voice...)

 

BAM!

Enter FUGGER, from XS:

Had a nearly new BlackOps at a good price, considering the color scheme and performance I had to go with it. He also threw in a crazy Corsair billfold of some sort and a couple tubes of thermal paste I've never heard of but is probably better than what I've got.

And last but not least (well, sort of least)...

Dan,

 

I wanted to "pop my cherry" by posting my first post to your thread.

 

I want results.....it has been nearly two months!

I don't know how I missed this but it looks like an awesome project! I did something similar 10 years or so ago and loved the case, but it is not useable anymore due to its size and what not. Are you planning on cutting or painting an airforce logo somewhere on the case?

Here is what I did, it turned out OK but the blue turned out way to light for my taste.

I checked out the other link man, that's hell of a job you did on the side panels. That design looks familiar for some reason, but I'm not sure if I've seen it before or not. A lot of work but its progressing very nicely.

 

Keep up the good work.

I appreciate the comments, however the project will remain at OCN.

Nope.

 

Edit:

 

The project will not be at OCN either, from this point on it shall pretty much just be my thing. The finished product will likely be seen at various places, but no worklog is planned for the remainder of the project. I will be taking picture though, so it is possible I might make an album of them and send/link it to interested parties.

 

We'll see.
