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!



























































Let me know what you guys think and stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex

Have to be honest, not dead sure on the white bits.. I'm not really sure what they add? They seem out of place to me? :P

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.













































Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex

Thanks mate! Just wanted it to look more banged up and though the white adds a nice contrast. Once I add the blood effects it should blend in even more

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.









You can see it coming together.



More work on the top panel. Mounting the pieces together.





And here they are both on the case.



More pics from the next day.





And lets not forget the finishing touches on the helmet







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,

Alex

Hi guys!

Here's the helmet nearly finished! Just some more minor details that will be added.













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.









.

Let me know what you guys think.

Cheers,

Alex
